The Warm PB Cookie (S$13.00) was not a single piece of skillet cookie that encased “lava” in it, but it was still a yummy surprise to all cookie monsters out there. A few large cookies were laid out and baked on the skillet, making them crispy by the edges and more chewy inwards, so chewy until I could ditch my imagination of it as a lava cookie.

On top of the cookies came the salted Speculoos softie swirl, which further enhanced the peanut butter accents in this dessert. Let it melt a little so that the cookie can be soaked with some of that soft serve. Heaven in my mouth with this one, and it was so difficult to choose between this and the Mochi waffles for the more mood-lifting dessert.

KARA’s own version of a chilled (凉拌) Mala meal was quite an interesting dish for me, because I would not expect to find a Chilled Mala Chicken and Noodles (S$19.00) behind those frozen yoghurt dispensers.

Having said that, the dish had almost everything in there, from noodles to pulled poached chicken thigh meat to homemade pickles to sliced cucumbers to roasted peanuts. What was really missing was the anticipated Mala’s numbing and spicy kick, maybe because they had held back from splashing the food with lots of their self-concocted chilli oil.

To raise the game instead of going for this 小小辣 (very mildly spicy) combo, give the friendly staff a request that you needed more spicy kick, especially if you were mindful like me about their price point.

KARA appeared to be quite packed with students from nearby schools and institutions, but it was surely not just a frozen yoghurt shop, just because it was by Sogurt. It seemed that they also served coffee, snacks and proper meals, and their latest additions had some Japanese or Sichuan influences.

Their Aburi Mentaiko Salmon grain bowl (S$16.00) was filled with cooked salmon bits, but more distinctively there was the Mentaiko mayonnaise that gave the food a nice pinkish appearance, before further garnished and topped with an open Ajitama (boiled egg with molten yolk). It would have been aesthetically pleasing to have the yolk slightly less cooked, but the overall flavours of the dish easily compensated that imperfection.

A more guilt-free option was to substitute the Garlic Japanese Rice with Quinoa Salad for an additional S$3.00, to get more dietary fibre and less carbohydrate intake out of a grain bowl.

Cosy place for tea

While most cafes would be exploding with queues - crown bakery still has a space to house me and my appetite for a good croissant.

Go for the croissant and tea or coffee set at 7.80 ( excluding taxes ) and yes - it’s any coffee - not just the regular black coffee .

The croissants here are probably the best ( in my opinion ). Crisp outside and moist inside . Ask for your pastries to be toasted before serving .

And you gotta ask for the tea set - it’s not in the menu 👍.

I really really love the window seats overlooking the main road at Atlas! Might be better to visit on a weekday instead of a weekend as it’s super packed and squeezy - not my definition of a chill weekend brunch. I can envision sitting here for hours on a weekday morning or afternoon doing work on a laptop, reading a book, or just people watching with a cuppa.

Recommendations:
- Ice Tea Macchiato
- Milky Way
- Truffle Fries
- Summer Chicken Stew
- Butterscotch Banana Pancake

Pancakes from Atlas’s brunch menu consisting of their signature fluffy pancake served with butterscotch bananas, maple-glazed cornflake crunch and honeycomb ice cream. The menu indicates a +20min wait time, which certainly does hold true, so do be prepared to wait if you order this! Fortunately for us, we ordered the pancakes together with the creamy mushrooms to share, and these came just a few minutes before we were done with the mushroom dish, so the timing was perfect.

These pancakes are really awesome. I enjoyed this much more than the creamy mushrooms! Though the pancake is thick, it’s super crisp on the outside, yet warm, fluffy and pillowy soft on the inside. Love the butterscotch bananas with have a creamy, melt in your mouth texture. The honeycomb ice cream is also really nice - it’s sweet but it’s okay once eaten with the pancake. There’s also little globules of crunchy honeycombs studded in the scoop, which was really nice! The maple-glazed cornflakes were also a great addition to the dish as they’re sweet yet slightly savoury, and add a welcome crunch and change in flavour to the pancake and ice cream. The combination of varying tastes and mouthfeels make the Butterscotch Banana Pancake a winning dish, might be a little too sweet for a main, but it’s great for dessert and I would definitely order this again the next time I visit because it’s so good!!!!

The hot and freshly brewed counterpart to Atlas’s cold brew Matcha Warrior.

Matcha taste is not too bad, there is a slight bitter aftertaste. However, it was too milky and dilute for my overall liking. The chilled Matcha Warrior would be a better option than this even though it’s milky as it’s cold and refreshing for a hot day but my advice would be to skip this and order the iced tea macchiato or Milky Way.

Tried this at Lunar Coffee Brewers and the one at Atlas is just as awesome. It was such a hot day out and this was the perfect beverage to cool down with. I love the sweet, yet slightly savoury creamy foam on its own, and also when its mixed with the refreshing clear tea below.

Must must must order this beverage if you’re at Atlas Coffeehouse or any of their sister cafes!!

Came to try this signature dish at Atlas Coffeehouse and also ordered the scrambled eggs after reading multiple reviews on how good this was.

This was basically two slices of sourdough - one topped with herbed creamy porcini mushrooms, sun dried tomatoes and parmesan, and the other with the add-on scrambled eggs.

To be honest, while this tasted good, I didn’t think it justified the hype about it. The scrambled eggs weren’t fluffy enough for my liking, and didn’t amaze me (unlike The Populus Scramble). Also, the creamy mushrooms and cheese got a little jelak after a while, so this might be good for sharing so your taste buds don’t get too bored of the rich cream. I’d rather go for the Summer Chicken Stew than this the next time round :)

Thin, crispy and fragrant truffle fries at Atlas Coffeehouse. I can see why these are a crowd favourite because the fries here are truly fantastic!

The portion is also really generous and probably suitable to share among 4 or even more! With two mains, we only managed to eat half the bowl and we were really full yet we wanted to keep on eating cos it was super addictive 😣 I personally preferred these over PS Cafe truffle fries, then again, I haven’t had PS Cafe fries for quite a long while so maybe it’s not an accurate comparison. This is definitely a great side to order for sharing!
