The sourdough was a little tough for my liking (maybe coz turned cold fast), altho the butter was prob the star. Extremely light in terms of texture, and had a savoury cheddar flavour -- reminds of some strong cheese chips 🀭. Definitely was tempted to get the butter on its own, which he does sell separately ($15)!

Note that they only have seats just outside the shop with fans (no air-con) if you're planning to eat there! Have also yet to try the other items on the menu but wouldn't mind having a bag of black ssm granola to myself! 🀭

Overall Rating: 7.5/10

No way I was gonna give their Black Sesame Granola a miss after seeing and hearing good reviews about them!

Black Sesame Granola w/ Delta Greek Yoghurt ($8)
Would recommend first eating the black sesame granola on its own without the yoghurt, so you get to savour the full flavours of the black sesame! After pairing with the Greek Yoghurt, which was pretty smooth and light, it kinda overpowers the black ssm a little. Still an enjoyable one imo!

I enjoyed this! Served hot with a good french vanilla sauce that tasted like custard. The bread pudding was also fragrant and paired well with the cold cream, so you get a hot & cold combination in 1 mouthful. Only qualm is the price for a really small size, although you could get this at $5++ if you order with Executive Lunch Set!

Not crispy sadly. There's chocolate within which was not bad in terms of flavour, but it'd be much better if the croissant was heated up so it'd be crispy.

Always wanted to try @aliceboulangeriesg for the longest of time, and finally got to try them! Their selection of Cakes, Pastries, and Brunch food were just so tempting I couldn't give it a miss!

ALICE Big Breakfast ($24++)
Overall pretty well-executed - picked Scrambled eggs for my choice of eggs, which were pretty creamy. Sourdough had a nice chew and sourdough tang, and pork sautΓ©ed mushrooms & bratwurst were flavourful. There's also streaky bacon which just made this really hearty.

Common Man Fluffy Pancakes ($24)
I was honestly really excited for the pancakes, considering these were thick! The pancakes came with caramelised bananas and walnuts, salted caramel sauce, nutty crumble & berry coulis. Ngl this didn't taste like a pancake, but more like a cakey texture, which was dense and slightly dry esp at parts without the sauce. It also got jelak so you gotta share this.

Kinda expected more for the price, and I'd defo prefer some fluffy pancakes for brunch! Their other dishes might be better tho!

It was extremely crowded during brunch on weekends, but since it was near the area we decided to give their food a try.

Croissant Croque Monsieur ($18)
Look at that cheese! This croissant was filled with Ham, Bechamel & aged cheddar cheese. Certainly a hearty option for brunch, and it's a combination of flavours and texture that can't really go wrong. The portion might not be enough for some though!

We picked Maple Syrup & Earl Grey Icecream, and I have to say this was really pretty! NGL I don't have high expectations of instagrammable food, because most of the time it's just for the gram, but this surprised me! The waffles were crispy, and the maple syrup added good flavour as well. Only qualm is it might be a tad sweet for some.

Angus Beef, Brioche Bun, Smoked Cheddar, Bacon, Sunny Egg, Fries, Pink Onion, BBQ sauce. Personally quite enjoyed this burger - because although the ingredients sounded simple, the flavours came together pretty well. I liked that the smoked cheddar flavour was evident, and the beef patty was thick but not dry, and was well-seasoned. Fries also remained crispy throughout - a good side to have!

This was pretty creamy with a good strong mushroom flavour, and linguine was also cooked al-dente! Only wouldn't mind an even stronger truffle flavour here! 🀭

🌟 Creamy Baked Mac & Cheese ($15)
This was our our favourite dish that night. The cheese crust was flavourful, and beneath it was really cheesy, creamy, molten cheese that coated the well-baked Mac, making it such a great dish to have, and share.

πŸ₯― Portobello Truffle Bagel (V) ($15)
+$1 for Gruyère bagel
Toasted bagel with roasted Portobello mushroom, arugula, black truffle cream cheese.
We bought one Bagel to try since we came during lunch time and was really hungry 🀭. NGL we were expecting a much larger portion, but flavourwise the Portobello mushroom was pretty flavourful. The Black Truffle Cream Cheese could do with more truffle flavour tho!

There are many other exciting affogato flavours to choose from, and I was really spoilt for choice trying to pick just 2 from the menu 🀭. Definitely recommend coffee (and matcha) lovers to give their affogatos a try!
