I had a mentaiko pasta, and I loved it! It had just the perfect amount of cream, and the spaghetti was cooked al-dente. The mentaiko topping was pleasantly generous too, and I couldn’t stop eating it even though I wasn’t hungry at all. The waiters and waitresses at Five & Dime were very kind, polite and quick.

It's a really small dining place. Probably less than 10 tables?
Do make RESERVATION beforehand. 
We went around 2pm and the place was packed.

FOOD was nice. 
We ordered a Spinach Tamago, a Big Brekkie, a side/appetizer that consists of salmon and a Matcha Latte.
The Salmon was really very nice! but it came with lots of vege.
Spinach Tamago -
It's Japanese sweet egg omelette with lots of spinach inside it.
It came with a little bowl of fruits, cubes of potato, a handful of salad, and a slice of bread. A really balanced fill.
The potatoes were fried with a very little pinch of spice.
I'm not a bread lover but the bread was really soft and fluffy.
Big Brekkie -
It came with Scrambled Eggs, Bacons, Beans, and Sauteed Mushrooms.
The eggs were more to sweet kind than salty.
The bacons were very crispy.
I love the mushrooms!
Oh ya. and the Matcha Latte is nice too! :) 

SERVICE fast and friendly. 
The servers came with smiles and politeness. and we didn't need to wait very long for the food despite the place was packed. The servers were attentive and refill our ice water as and when it's low.

Just one thing... the place was rather noisy. Maybe cos of the space is small and confined. You can hear everyone voices.

For the food and the service, i think the price was worth it. :)

Decoration is lovely for sure and the place could be a great place for brunch if the food was good...and the service efficient. i had no plerasure at all eating my plateand even taught I could do best at home which is so unpleasant while going out for brunch. the poached eggs were full of water, not enough bread, useless lilltle fruit salad. Had to wait so long for extra bread and the fresh orange juice was very pricy considered the fact that there was more ice than juice...in brief, coudl do best
