My second trip here after a year, food standard seems to drop as before. Nevertheless, coffee is still as good as before. The coffee beans used here are Habitat's very own carpenter's blend, roasted weekly and locally. Decided to drop by for brunch since their brunch menu is available till rather late at 530pm for weekdays. The menu is pretty much the same like the usual items for other cafes. I was craving for some scrambled eggs that day so here's The Big Ben $14 which consist a bit of everything breakfast. It was overall average, the scramble eggs were disappointing though, more like omelette. Eggs Benedict ($12), don't really fancy the hollandaise sauce here as I've had better ones at Pacarama, few doors down. Truffle fries were decent for $8, note that some prices has increased over the year. 

Heard the hype that the Sticky Date Pudding ($12) at Habitat is good so we decided to give it a try. It comes with a scoop of butterscotch and vanilla ice cream on the top. For the portion and affordable pricing, I would recommend this. I'll be back for coffee whereas for food I would probably have it elsewhere like Pacarama.

Good ambience. The food and coffee were good. I am a sticky date pudding lover and I was excited to find out that this cafe has it! I was very satisfied with the sticky date pudding order and it tasted awesome!

Lack of manpower to handle a busy sunday brunch. Waited 20mins for my coffee, and 50mins for my big ben when my coffee has already turned cold. 

Inconsistency in serving portions. My  friend and I ordered big ben, but the items are slightly different. We didnt ask for a change since the wait was already so long. 

Disappointed.

Critics' Reviews
Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned

What to Eat
Have fun with food as foreplay, and these items are easily bought at supermarkets. Just be mindful of allergies (gas and rashes are no fun) and be prepared to sacrifice the sheets
