This is one of their weekend specials, the Emmental. It's supposed to have emmental cheese, but honestly I didn't taste any? 😅 The omelette is stuffed with a piece of lean bacon, and comes with two slices of toast (I chose multi grain). Its served with a salad of pico de gallo, sour cream and smashed avocado.

I love the omelette. Super fluffy and perfectly seasoned. The egg is just set inside but still slightly oozy. So simply done but well-executed. And the flavors of the slightly spicy pico de gallo with the tanginess of the sour cream. They make excellent coffee and juices too.

The ambience is really chill, with choice of either sitting on the squishy sofa or table and there's excellent wifi. It's just fuss-free food with good coffee. Just not sure if the food is worth the price ($19.95 for this plate), but my dining partner seems to really like this place, so I always end up coming here to enjoy a lazy afternoon.

This is so delicious! The taste was bursting in my mouth. I like they let us choose brown rice or Japanese rice. And yes I choose brown rice. I thought it will be those typical “red rice mix white rice” type. But no, it’s really BROWN RICE. So tasty! It was well mixed. Totally worth the $16!

We chose to sit outdoors as the cafe was waaaaaay too quiet (even public library also noisier lol).

This is the 2nd time I’m back at The Book Cafe for mains, and I can’t help ordering what I had the last time again, simply because it’s very hard to resist a hearty plate of wok hei-infused Kimchi Fried Rice ($16) with chicken, shiitake mushroom and a sunny side up🙆🏻‍♀️ Love that there is an option of brown rice or Japanese rice too:)! P.S. This is non food related, but The Book Cafe has the comfiest couch ever!

Orchid Vanilla Tea ($8.50) is a new experience for tea lovers. It has a velvety mouthfeel and a soothing taste. It is certainly a must-try if you love vanilla very much - the flavour and aroma really comes through. [9/10]

Chicken and Mango Chutney Sandwich ($16.00) is one of the best sandwiches I ever had. The chicken was very well seasoned and the choice of bun - ciabatta bread was an excellent choice. However, I could not detect much of the mango chutney which was a little disappointing. Aside from that, it is very enjoyable and rather filling to say the least. [6.5/10]

The staff in the cafe are really friendly and extremely helpful. It was a delight to be served by them. [10/10]

If you are looking for the following:
• A place to relax away from the bustling city
• A place to study + free wi-fi

This is the place for you!

Didn’t feel like poached eggs, so the waitress offered to give us the option of scrambled eggs instead 😊 This dish was very well-executed - with the warm toasted fluffy muffins, maple candied bacon, juicy tomatoes, crispy rosti patty and scrambled eggs which were creamy and tasty! Overall taste of this dish was really goood!! 😋
