From the Burpple community

Scrambled eggs, fresh herb melange, marinated feta, back bacon, toasted croissant.

Scrambled eggs are soft and creamy. I don’t taste any feta but it’s still good scrambled eggs. Bacons are crispy but not crispy as a cracker, which I appreciate.

Add-on mixed mushrooms are also tasty (although slightly expensive at $4.50 for such a small portion). They taste like they have been cooked with balsamic vinegar.

It is not as wow as their french toast for me but still a yummy, well executed plate of food.

I like their coffee. It is bold and not acidic - choose the 6oz white coffee over the 8oz and ‘Magic’ for a bolder, less milky cuppa

Baked vanilla brioche, butter rum bananas, pistachio crumb, natural yogurt.

It is a well thought out dish and all the components works so well together

The french toast is custardy in the middle and yet flaky and crisp around the edges. The bananas are yum - they are nicely caramelised and the pistachio crumb adds another textural dimension when you eat it with the mushy bananas.

The yogurt itself is not sweet and thus, is the perfect addition that brings the dish together - another sweet sauce like honey would have made the dish overly sweet.

This is now my favourite french toast in Singapore. Their coffee is also not bad - strong and not acidic. My first time at this cafe but definitely not my last.

So good to be dining in at cafe and enjoy a cuppa coffee

Last tried this pancake 4 years ago, when Populus just opened its door. It’s still soft and kinda fluffy but didn’t remember the pancake to be this thick and dense. Texture was more similar to banana cake than a pancake. That aside, we enjoy the refreshing berry compote and passionfruit curd lacing the top. The butter cube didn’t seem to add any flavour and you can definitely do it without the additional maple syrup on the side. Wouldn’t have been able to finish this all by myself considering how thick it is (and I got jelat after a few bites).


Wasn’t expecting the tangy flavour profile from the noodle salad, but it was welcomed especially to complement our sweet buckwheat pancake. Roasted cod was moist inside though the crust was a tad dry but still good nonetheless. The lime & sesame dressing helps to boost our appetite with its refreshing tangy kicks. Really enjoy this dish!


This 'pudding' ($13) has a more cake-like texture and is surrounded by a rich pool of dulce de leche sauce, vanilla ice cream and cornflake crumb.

The dulce de leche is a tad too sweet and rich for me, it's more like condensed milk. Maybe less of it would have been better. The 'pudding' itself is really nice though, I like it fluffier like this although it's a tad dry. The earthiness of the date went quite well with a simple vanilla ice cream, and the cornflake crumb definitely gives it a nice crunch.
