The big ben

Coffee was not too shabby and i tried this the big ben. It's basically scrambled eggs, honey baked ham, toast, chicken sausage, tomatoes and mini potato pancakes. Scrambled egg was on point! It was moist, soft and light. And their potato pancakes are nice and crispy.

Don't live up to the hype

Don't waste your money :)

Had churros, chocolate lava cake and coffee during my visit there.

The churros were too hard and tasted over-cooked, resulting in the toughness and dryness. The lava cake only had small amounts of chocolate lava in it. There was not much service involved, as ordering had to be done at the counter yourself, and water is self-serviced. Seats are quite small and squeezy as the whole cafe is rather small. Not recommended and not worth your drive there. Pricing is as expensive as most other cafes out there in Singapore, but the food don't make up for it.

long wait for coffees, clueless staff

Had to chase staff twice for our orders of cappuccino. We were issued table tags but servers appeared consistently clueless. Very very poor service.

Slightly overhyped with mostly average food

After missing out on the cafe the first 2 weekday afternoons we visited because of the long waiting list on both occasions, we finally managed to get in on our 3rd visit on a Wednesday. Even then, reservations were full and we had to wait for 15 minutes after we arrived before it was our turn to be seated.

For starters, we went for the Poutine, which is described as fries topped with homemade brown gravy. The homemade part got me a little skeptical because the brown sauce tastes somewhat like the instant kind we can get from stores. The fries were ok in texture, but the mildly rancid oil it was fried in was quite obvious.

Of all the mains, the Eggs Tomato Relish fared best. It is very similar, if not is, the Mediterranean Shakshuka. The combination was very appetising and the sauce a little addictive with the bread. You can choose your preferred style of eggs (ours was runny).

The Churros was nicely fried and crispy on the outside. A pity it was dough-ey inside, which is a sign of undercooking. Otherwise, it could have been among the top on my best churros list.

Great coffee and truffle fries

Perpetually crowded with patrons, Habitat Cafe definitely gives their neighbouring competitor a run for their money.

Over here, they serve great coffee and truffle fries. So do check them out!
