We are finally visiting this place together!
Here for a quick brunch, as we had other plans for lunch 🙂 It was fairly quiet on a late Sunday morning, and we were not sure if it was because of the location, or that the nearby church was temporarily not in service due to cracks formation caused by the building of the Thomson line, hence the lack of crowd or simply because of the seemingly rather expensive food prices, as compared to the few nearby cafes!
The entire place had a white and brown theme, and had floor to ceiling windows covering an entire side of the cafe, so it felt very bright and clean. This cafe also encourages sharing of tables, as they had a huge sharing table (able to sit 12-16 people), and the remaining tables probably can seat around 8 people each. Not a bad place to chill out for an hour or so.
We decided to share the Red Velvet Pancakes ($16), and hubby wanted a 5oz White Coffee ($5).
The coffee was smooth, but not strong, and did not really have any aroma. It felt a bit acidic to me, but hubby thought it was fine.
The three very thick slices of pancakes were served with mascarpone (a type of Italian cheese made from cream, but we thought it tasted like thick yoghurt, haha) and granola bits, as well as fresh strawberries and blueberries, and all these went very well with the pancakes! However, the red velvet effects seemed to be just colouring to make the pancakes look pretty (it’s supposed to be beetroot juice). It was just nice for 2 to 3 persons to share.
Note: Prices already include GST but no service charge. So would you consider this place to be expensive? Considering that we didn’t have to pay any additional charges and that the pancakes serving were really quite generous, the prices were not as expensive as Symmetry, but One Man Coffee down the same street was probably more value-for-money.
