Quaint cafe in Tiong Bahru

So the group decided to take a break from our usual beer drinking nights and do something hipster, like brunch, at Tiong Bahru. (Good to see them in daylight for a change!)

time to find another brunch place

This used to be my go to brunch place but lately the ambience and coffee is unbearable. The food is still great, particularly the big boy breakfast set. The coffee is not drinkable. If you get espresso or long black you will notice the very sour taste. I guess they source good exotic beans but they just don't know how do process them. The place itself still has a nice feel if you manage to get a table inside. The outside sitting area at the back is very humid (amazing how they made Singapore more humid).

Truffle Fries!

Love their truffle fries! Tried their eggs benedict and kong ba bao too. Not too bad. Personally I don't really like their coffee there.

Terrible recommendation, and no response to feedback in over a month...

Over a month ago I came by for breakfast and also picked up some coffee beans after a recommendation from one of your baristas. Those beans were not the kind I had asked for, and I tried to write to you with my feedback via the email listed on your website. The email bounced back saying the account is not active. I then sent you the message privately on your FB account, to no response. A week later I tried again, with no response again.   You leave me no choice but to give you a negative review publicly. I tried to reach out, but you seem to have no interest in listening to your customers.

East West mix

Good cafe with well prepared coffee and, surprise, Chinese food.

Food: Had good latte, pork belly with Mun Tao, tau sar pau.  The "kong bak"  pau was interesting,  priced at $7.50, it's good value.  Pork served in a pot, with 2 white buns.  We also had the poacheg egg with buns but they were not worth the money.  The tau sar pau was interesting, but at $2.80 each,  could have used non-commercial filling. 

Value:  Good value for coffee and the "kong bak"  paus,  less for others.

Service:  Good

Ambience:  choice of 5 foot way, AC interior of rear patio seats,  comfortable but tables were too small.
