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.
