πŸ’ΌService review:
The service here is the best I’ve ever seen in any cafe. They are super friendly and always saying phrases like β€œDon’t worry be happy”, makes me feel comfortable when dining.

πŸ₯žFood review:
The food is always top quality. Not only was it served fast, it also looks very presentable, very β€œinstagram-worthyβ€πŸ“Έ

✨Ravioles de Royans✨

It is a very cheesy and creamy dish. The ravioli is soft and easy to chew. I recommend sharing this with your friends instead of ordering it for yourself, as it may be too rich and heavy for one person to finish.

I’m usually very picky about eggs benedict. For me, the eggs have to be cooked the right temperature for egg yolk to flow out when cut (see the last pic for perfectionπŸ’―). The hollandaise sauce also has to be not too liquid and a right amount of ingredients to have taste in the sauce itself. This eggs benedict is my favourite based on that. However, the ham is slightly salty and it is difficult to eat all items in one bite.

The french toast is light and fluffy. It is not too sweet and goes really well with the fruits and nuts.

Featured is the 𝐓𝐀𝐑𝐓𝐄 π…π‹π€πŒππ„π„ ($πŸπŸ“)πŸ• - a thin crust pizza topped with asparagus, apple, ham & the main reason I got it, blue cheese🀀.

The dough was rolled out veryy thinly, giving the crust an addictive soda cracker crispness!

Tried out this busy cafe in Tiong Bahru around 3pm. Ordered the crossiant and croque, paired with black coffee and ice mocha. Portion size for the food is alright but can be better for drinks (considering the price). In general, food taste ok and will revisit if nearby. But will not specially head down as price is on the steep side.

A tiny version of the Italian ravioli, the French dumpling pasta was filled with Tete de Moine cheese and served with creamy sauce. The portion was decent for sharing and it got more addictive with every bite. The fries were different from the usual shoestring fries and of a thicker cut; and it seemed that they were baked then fried to a brownish shade.

Saw many good reviews on this and it definitely lived up to my expectations. The pizza had a thin and flaky pastry crust; and the ingredients were an interesting combination that overall felt very light in terms of flavour.
