Truly my daily cup, will not choose any other kopi. My usual is kopi C kosong, tried both hot and iced, both top tier

The Daily Cup is one of those places which we have read about some time back — a rather intriguing location situated within Bishan North Shopping Mall (not exactly a shopping mall; think of it more as a town centre-esque area with shops within a HDB estate), it is rare to hear of an establishment like The Daily Cup that serves up local-style Hainanese breakfast being operated as a kiosk with no seating space. Having just opened its doors earlier in the year, The Daily Cup is actually by the same folks behind Big Boys Western Steakhouse at the food centre located at Beauty World Centre — 8days has also ran an article on them during their early days of operation as well. Being a hole-in-the-walls establishment, The Daily Cup actually serves quite a decent variety of toasts and breakfast items that one would typically find in a coffeeshop stall serving up toasts and other breakfast dishes — for hot food, apart from serving up different renditions of toasts with different spreads (think Traditional Peanut Butter Toast and the All Time Favourite Bun Toast — the latter being something similar to the UFO Bun that some coffeeshop stalls would call it), they also do serve up trendier items like the Egg Mayo Sandwich (i.e. Tamago Sando) as well as other non-toast items like the Chee Cheong Fun and Chwee Kueh. For beverages, they do have a pretty extensive selection of local-style Kopi, as well as Teh Ipoh Style — they do also serve up White Coffee, as well as other unique concoctions such as the Freshly Passion Fruit Tea, and the Matcha Green Tea Strawberry as well.

Being one who just simply cannot give up on their Hainanese-style Kaya Butter Toast, we decided to go for the ala-carte order of the Singnature Butter Kaya Toast along with their White Coffee Bing Kaw (i.e. Iced White Coffee, served “thick”) — not sure if the spelling for Singnature was an intentional wordplay, or if it was just an unfortunate typographical error for “Signature” instead. We were given a receipt that indicated our order number after making the payment for our order at the counter — the electronic display will call out the order number once the order is ready. Collecting our order when our number was called upon, we headed to one of the nearest communal seating areas located within the estate to have a seat whilst consuming the Singnature Kaya Butter Toast. It is noted that the Singnature Kaya Butter Toast at The Daily Cup is served in away that the toast is sliced really thin — it does remind us of the toasts that are served at Coffee Break at both Amoy Street Food Centre and Hong Lim Food Centre on first look; all that with a thick slab of butter in between. Sinking our teeth into the Singnature Kaya Butter Toast, the toast was surprisingly crisp, though it is best to be consumed hot — the toast does turn quite limp and soft rather quickly. What we really enjoy here is the proportion of kaya and butter here — the thick slab of cold butter comes sufficiently salty, and pairs well with the Nyonya-style Kaya which they had opted for thy comes with a hint of Pandan flavour and just the right level of sweetness. Definitely the sort of comforting Hainanese-style breakfast that we are bound to enjoy.

We did find it a little bit of a shame that The Daily Cup is a strictly takeaway-only concept; its offerings does generally seem to suit a dine-in concept more especially considering how the consistency of the Singnature Kaya Butter Toast does seem to change if one needs some time to get to somewhere to actually consume it — there is also some waiting time involved for the toasts items, which makes it a little difficult to stand around especially if there are a few customers waiting for their orders at the same time. That being said, we do feel that The Daily Cup does seem to know what they are trying to do — the concept does serve up pretty thoughtful, simple breakfast items that locals will find comfort in, all whilst having just a few options that would most probably be able to entice the hipster crowd that can also be seen as “adventurous” to those whom would opt for the usual. With prices of the more traditional toast offerings at $2 ala-carte and $4.50 for a meal (which comprises of soft-boiled eggs and the patron’s choice of drinks), to $4.50 ala-carte and $5.50 for a meal for items such as the Egg Mayo Sandwich and the Blue Berry Cheese Sandwich, The Daily Cup does make for a wallet-friendly breakfast option to takeout to start the day with or even as a tea-time treat especially for those staying within the immediate vicinity.

Love this friendly neighbourhood store which shares hearty breakfast at friendly prices, I had the tamago sando which was so creamy, soft and served refreshingly cold. Its a perfect start to the day. Paired it with a gao hot Milo :)
