Look at the beautiful lamination on this double chocolate roll. Nothing fancy, nothing over the top, just a good old croissant with dose of semi-sweet chocolate. Contrary to what its name suggests, it’s not actually diabetic. Topped with a healthy dusting of cocoa powder, what you can expect instead is the dark, nutty profile from chocolate weaved into the dough, with little pops of 40% chocolate buttons folded through. It’s like the epitome of a good bar of chocolate yknow: from the bittersweet elements, a touchy of astringency, nuttiness, to just a little bit of sweetness to bring out all these beautiful flavours.

Brotherbird Coffeehouse’s latest dessert creation completely blew my mind. Their Honey Toast ($12) sees a liberally buttered slice of toast drizzled with honey, then served with a side of spice poached pears, ice cream of your choice, and a little crumble over the top. Such a humble desert, but get this my friends: every element is perfectly executed and painstakingly made from scratch. From the tender pears lovingly poached for an hour; the handmade Madagascan vanilla ice cream ridden with beautiful specks of vanilla bean; to the house-baked white bread, slowly toasted over the fire till all that glorious melted butter’s absorbed, then given a quick blast on the salamander for that lovely caramelisation on top. Honestly I couldn’t get enough of that buttered toast: so so moist, and that touch of salt really helps balance out all the sugar in this dessert. For those who think butter’s bad for you? Newsflash: we are all dying. Every day. Eat some butter before it is too late.

Burnt Caramel Crepe ($14) I’ve been ogling at this crepe since it appeared on my Instagram feed, but it was a bit of a let down. The thin, soft crepe was not bad and it’s topped with a block of Bordier butter (the supposed best of all butters, but it melted before I could try it so I couldn’t really tell the difference). However, the caramel was a bit too salty and strong tasting for my liking. The “burnt” aspect of the caramel also wasn’t that apparent because the saltiness overwhelmed any taste of bitterness, which I actually do enjoy in a caramel. Hopefully they can tweak the sauce a bit!

Bolognese Galette ($18) Tried out this new galette and crepe place that’s run by the now-defunct Ronin and is all the rage now. This bolognese galette has a slow-cooked minced veal, beef and pork bolognese filling, with a mix of gruyere and cheddar, and topped with an egg. It’s also garnished with some pink peppercorns. While I enjoyed the mix of cheese in this galette, I felt that there could have been more of the bolognese filling as it felt a bit sparse and wasn’t very filling. In fact, it was kind of reminiscent of a plaster prata and wasn’t really outstanding, particularly for the high price. Singapore doesn’t have really have a specialised Galette place and the environment is nice if not a bit of a squeeze and pretty noisy because of the acoustics, but it’ll probably be a one off visit for me since it’s not really within my budget. Also P.S. The queues are really long so don’t come here if you’re in a rush! It took more than an hour to queue and for our food to come, probably because they’re so popular and they only have 3 hot plates to make the crepes on in their open style kitchen.

You're here for a relaxing afternoon with good friends who'll share good food and a nice conversation with you. Start with the savory Salami & Potatoes Galette ($18), where roasted potatoes, brie, an oozy egg and crispy salami make for a lovely dish. Then, move onto a coffee and Crepe with Burnt Caramel and Butter ($16) that is sure to please. Photo by Burppler Nobelle Liew

If I liked what they had to offer during their soft launch, well I’m now completely in love with Lucid. Since their official opening, they’ve switched out their espresso blend to one of a medium-dark roast from Taiwan. I love it, LOVE IT. I’m a big fan of darker roasts and bolder, nuttier flavours; so if I liked their coffee back when they were having a milder, more acidic brew, what more when they’re using beans of a flavour profile I prefer? 🥰 The current blend makes for a delightful iced Strong Black ($5) with a great balance of bitterness and really mild acidity, and of course works wonders in milk-based drinks. I tried their iced Mocha ($6.50) as well, and I’d call that among the best mochas I’ve had in Singapore. It’s not one for the sweet-toothed, focusing on the quality of the coffee and chocolate instead of masking it all up with sugar. The chocolate comes in as a nutty, cocoa kinda earthy sweetness towards the end, complementing and even imho enhancing the flavours of the espresso. Let’s just say I’m now a huge fan.

Newly opened Lucid is one of the new kids on the block in the bustling Lavender vicinity. We were there during the soft launch phase and Lucid will be officially opened in the mid of February, so do check them out for coffee and bakes. •••••••••••••••••••• 📍Lucid 38 Hamilton Road, Singapore 209208

Cloud Beta v0.1 One place that one would not have missed if scrolling through social media over the last few weeks, LUCID is a new space that serves up specialty coffee and cakes at Hamilton Road in the Jalan Besar neighbourhood; the latter sourced from Thoughts Bake. The Cloud Beta v0.1 features elements such as Ivoire Chocolate Mousse, Strawberry Basil filling, and Shortbread base; slicing through the white chocolate mousse layer on the exterior, the mousse was considerably smooth, while the inside reveals a tart filling that gives a refreshing tang from the infusion of basil into the strawberry filling — a very classic combination of flavours, with the shortbread base giving a good buttery crunch. Not the first place to serve up a cloud-shaped cake, but a pretty decent one nonetheless that fits that raw aesthetic of the space

Lunch Sandwich I love their sliced sourdough so much. And they warm the sandwich up for you too if you are eating in. Two slices of gloriously buttered and toasted sourdough sandwiched cheddar cheese, roasted vegetables and pesto. It's just such a beautiful mix of textures and flavors. The crusty crunch of the sourdough and the soft, dense, sticky center of the bread. The salty sharp cheddar and the earthiness of the pesto. The tang of the tomato base that made up the roasted vegetables (kinda like a ratatouille). It's just a really simple and well executed sandwich with a delicious medley of flavors. My only gripe was that the sandwich wasn't sufficiently warm to melt the cheddar, but didn't really compromise on taste.

Big Ol’ Cinnamon Bun The cinnamon bun was soft, moist and cinnamony, with a pleasant tang to it. The cream cheese wasn’t too sweet, and was a nice accompaniment to the bun :)

The Academïcs Breakfast I don’t get the chance to eat such classy food very often but this was such a happy and well-spent meal. Some points to highlight, the bacon is coated with maple syrup and you can request for your eggs to be cooked in 3 ways (i.e. scrambled, poached or sunny-side up). Definitely wouldn’t mind coming back to eat more of their food! Price: $26 (exc GST) Ratings: 4/5

Pasta And Coffee Gotten this Carbonara and Crab Meat Aglio Olio! Personally, these two dishes compliment each other, as the carbonara might be a little sick after awhile , while the crab meat aglio olio is slightly spicy which helps to neutralise the overall taste! Knew the coffee academics from their coffee in a cone! And their coffee still taste amazing! ❤️ Best part, bring your own cup and there is some discount 💋 Price: $24++ (for the crab meat aglio olio), $6++ (for flat white) Satisfaction : 🤤 🤤 🤤 Location : @thecoffeeacademicssg at Scott Square

Fish Tako Great location - a bit of an oasis in the Orchard Road area. I don’t drink coffee, but am told it’s ok and the iced tea preparations are fairly innovative. The food is extremely average, or even below average. Service is limited to taking order and bringing the food and beverages to the table; otherwise it’s totally absent and a bit rough on the edges. If not for the 1-for-1 Entertainer offer, I wouldn’t bother coming here. These Academïcs are more Poly League than Ivy League.
