Food ordered:
1. Cheese Fries ($8) - cheese was weird.
2. Mushroom aglio olio ($13) - decent but could have more garlic.
3. Carbonara ($13) - tasteless. I had to add salt & pepper to make it more tasteful.

From starters menu, this generous portion of fries with cheese dip is $8. Great to share.


From mains menu, $19 per portion of duck leg (meat falling off the bone), sitting on heap of mashed potato, covered with arugula & drizzled on orange sauce. Quite tasteful.


From brunch menu, $12 for this lovely tortilla wrap of sliced grilled chicken, avocado, tomatoes & multi layers of lettuce. Side served greens salad. Sumptuous!


These bacon cup eggs would be more IG-worthy if they sprinkled some chopped bacon bits or herbs for a finishing touch. Similarly, those were possibly the simple missing touches we felt were lacking to complete its taste.
Nonetheless, this place still had its charm for a comfortable hangout in the heartland with cafe food and beers.

Thick with crispy edges, it had a good bite although we would prefer a fluffier centre. Fortunately, their waffles came with double scoops of ice cream which balanced the drier texture of the waffles. Flavours of their ice cream were not too bad, overall a decent treat without having to search too hard for a table.


Hmm, nice ambience.. food okay for that price.. But the waitress with a bitch face annoys us


Ate this mushroom aglio olio from The Larder cafe for bunch! I think we can already establish that pasta is my favorite food. HAHA

Smoked Salmon with poached eggs drizzled with generous hollandaise sauce on brioche bread. Served with greens.

Waffles here are on the sweeter side, with a dense texture quite like pancakes. Got the safe ice cream flavours chocolate and coffee latte. You might want to try the flavours before buying. The type of ice cream here is more suited for pacifying kids. Not so ideal if you wanna impress your date. Double scoops with waffles was $12.

Quite small for its price. Caramel sauce tasted very run-of-the-mill, vanilla ice cream was forgettable. Not worth it IMO. Would love to try their mains someday.


Was a little let down because as a whole it tasted just like normal caramel and could have been saltier. The lava centre would have been better if it was more flowy as well. Overall, still good, very decadent, but a little too sweet for my liking and would have been more balanced if it was a bit more savoury.

It's really just wonton. But then ratatouille is just roast veg, and bourguignon is just beef stew, so don't diss.

A family dinner at a cafe in Toa Payoh Central. The place is spacious even though it doesn't seems to be able to take in many customers. We ordered duck confits, pan seared seabass, BBQ pork ribs and mushroom truffle gratin. The duck confit is served with mashed potatoes and simple garnish. It was absolutely tasty when eat together with mash potatoes but the skin portion in my taste is too salty. The pan seared seabass to my dad is slightly fishy but the meat is soft and tender. It was served with salad and mash potatoes. The BBQ pork rib was meaty and to my sister liking. It was definitely value for money and was served with fries and coleslaw. The must try will be the mushroom truffle gratin which is super tasty and makes one can't stop eating it. If you are there, do try out the duck confit and mushroom truffle gratin!

Duck confit always get my attention. This wasn't too bad but personally, i would have preferred the meat to be more tender. Carbonara was average. Service staff were friendly and super polite though.

Toa Payoh's newest kid on the block serves up Western fare in a comfortable cafe setting. Its menu of familiar crowd pleasers like Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict ($16) and Duck Confit ($18) makes it an ideal place for a family brunch or class gathering. The Dowager's Fingers ($10) — long sticks of crispy fried wanton shaped like Empress Dowager Cixi's famed nail protectors — is unique (and Instagrammable) but a tad too gimmicky. Save your calories for a slice of the Royal Choco Truffle ($8) instead. It's rich, velvety and just the right amount of sweet.

Mushroom Truffle Grantin ($16)
Elbows with Shimeiji, shitake & button mushrooms in truffle cream sauce & cheese.

Quite rich and creamy. But a bit too salty. The truffle smell and taste was a bit faint too.

Baked Escargot ($8)
Garlic butter & Parmesan cheese
Quite a great deal for 6 juicy pieces.

I love this! Rich, velvety dark chocolate ganache that had just the right amount of sweetness. Not the cheapest at $8 per slice. The salty caramel ice cream was a huge miss. Super milky, full of chewy nuts... No hint of caramel at all.

The pilates-toned pasta was more czechar-wet than oil-slick while elsewhere the generosity displayed by the smorgasbord of seafood is as impressive as a twerking narwhal. 3.4/5
