Had a friend brought me here as she has been fan of this place. We tried the Toast Set ($4.30++) that included toast ciabatta! bread with kaya, 2 soft-boiled eggs and a tea/coffee, tho' I changed to iced milo for +$0.20. Also ordered the Cheong Fun set ($4.30++), and the savoury chee cheong fun was served with a nice sweet black sauce and that chilli! Yums. For those who like a twist on their traditional toast, it's worth a try if you're in the area, otherwise your neighborhood coffeeshop might serve the same and a cheaper price.

This non-air conditioned spot conveniently located at the corner of Bugis Junction serves local breakfast fare all day, and is a great Halal alternative to Toast Box on work days. Start your morning with the Kaya Butter Set ($6) — generously slathered, velvety smooth kaya and a slice of butter between two lightly toasted pieces of crusty ciabatta or focaccia bread. The set also comes with two perfectly wobbly 63°C sous vide eggs and a fragrant pandan teh-o. Come lunch time, the Chee Cheong Fun with Sambal Belacan ($3.20) and the Beef Rendang with Wild Rocket Sandwich ($7.80) make great, hearty meals that pair well with the Kopi Guyu (from $3) — black coffee with a shot of butter for an extra energy boost.

Major fan of CCF & this one is definitely worthy to be added in my personal list! ✔️ Had the aromatic pandan tea to go along w my meal. I guess pandan can't really go wrong w anything & this tea rendition is not only pleasant but also brings in a local flavor.

Not the most unique sort of breakfast. I think the kaya focaccia is normal and soso, should give it more twist. Pandan tea is good and refreshing- thats the highlight.

Located at the corner of Bugis Junction, this non-air conditioned shop is a great alternative to Toast Box for a light bite. The brainchild of Chef Benny and sister outlet to Eighteen Chefs, Seng Kee The Black Seed serves local breakfast fare all day. Swing by in the morning or after lunch to grab a Kopi (from $2.60) or for an extra boost, try the Kopi Guyu (from $3) — black coffee with a shot of butter. Feeling hungry? Wolf down a plate of Chee Cheong Fun with Sambal Belacan ($3.20) or have a Kaya Butter Set ($6) — expect generously slathered, velvety smooth kaya and a slice of butter between two lightly toasted pieces of crusty Ciabatta or Focaccia bread. It is served with two perfectly wobbly 63°C sous vide eggs.

Their 63°C soft boil eggs is super power! The sous-vide egg is a thing of beauty. The yolks are runny and surrounded by tender white that’s so silky smooth.
