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!! 😋

The coffee is not bad and the ambience is pretty good. They have a lot of power sockets available and free wifi so there seemed to be a lot people coming to do their works. Please be minded that they asked you to not work indoor during peak hours, but you can sit outdoor if you want.

No frills easy breakfast from the book cafe. Don't expect wows but you can count on homestyle like meals from this little cafe.

Having read some great reviews and seen this featured on a few different 'Good places to read' lists, I'd been looking forward to coming here and getting on with a book I had picked up. Unfortunately, I didn't get to do as much I had hoped as it was a lot noisier than the reviews had suggested and I didn't get the relaxing and cosy experience I was looking for. The interior however was gorgeous and I enjoyed the tea I ordered (albeit at a steep total price of S$9.40) The food being served to those around me looked great and I would probably try again and go for lunch with a friend rather than a hideaway nook for myself.
