This little, cozy café located on the upper floor of a shophouse in Duxton has been in our makan radars for a while after seeing those tantalizing posts by other food blogs. And when Loraine came back from Netherlands (at last!) a few of us decided to gather there for a food and coffee.
YummyformyTumTum (a catchy name), Goh and Fen from Indulgence After Workout, my partners in the4Moose (Vinleon and Mu Yao) and the star of the day, Loraine of Hungry Trotting Couple.
Stacked Pancakes with Maple Syrup and Berries (15.00+ SGD). The pancakes are delightfully moist (not soggy despite being served with maple syrup beforehand) and I found it just right, not too sweet or too floury. The portion is quite generous too.
Quiche with Salad and Chips (11.00+ SGD). He seemed unsatisfied with the portion though. The quiche was creamy and flavorful. Rather decent despite its appearance.
Tuna Melt Panini (14.00+ SGD). I love the couscous, probably because it reminded me of my trip to Europe. The couscous had pineapples added to it, giving it a tangy flavor. The Panini was decent. The tuna seemed to complement the cheese quite well. The bread could have been better.
Green Eggs with Ham (23.00+ SGD). Rather expensive in my opinion. The green scrambled eggs had sage added to it, giving it an herbal, earthy flavor. The ham reminded me of honey baked ham we had during Christmas.
Thick Toast with Poached Eggs and Ham (12.00+ SGD). The toast had a center dug out and in its place was ham, melted cheese and poached eggs with a huge serving of hollandaise sauce. It was good at the start but it starts to get heavy on the palate towards the end as the combination of egg yolk, melted cheese and hollandaise sauce proved to be too creamy for our taste.
Mini Beef Sliders (18.00+ SGD) and Carrot Cake (8.50+ SGD).
After brunch, why not hop to Flor for some really good classic cakes?
