Delicious brunch

I brought my parents for brunch and Habitat Coffee didn't disappoint. We had the Big Ben, Eggs Benedict, and Cheesynara, as well as the truffle fries. It wasn't the best eggs benedict I've had, but my father was very happy with his Big Ben, and we thoroughly enjoyed the fries as well. Ambiance and service is great as usual.

Recently dined there on 24th May 2015. 

You guys have got to be my favourite cafe in the Thompson area, and I've frequented this cafe 7 times since I've discovered it, always bringing new groups of friends because I trust that they too, will fall in the love with the food just like I did. 


But last Sunday, when I was there for my usual Habitat fix, the food was really really bad. You guys whip up my favourite tomato egg relish, but instead of the piping hot plate of tomato egg goodness, I was served a miserable, soupy tomato SAUCE, with GIANT slices of raw tomato (presumably to fill up the bowl), in a casserole dish half the size of what it used to be. 


The reason why your tomato egg relish was delicious is because it USED TO BE grilled in a large skillet, hence it had a thick, paste-like consistency, rather than this sloppy dish. I'm not sure if the chef has changed, or this is a change due to budget cuts but BRING BACK YOUR PREVIOUS TOMATO EGG RELISH! :( 


Sadly, my friend agrees with me as well, he's a first-timer to your cafe but agrees the food is really mediocre that day, I really hope it was just that one day that the food was bad. Crowd was poor that morning as well, don't go on a downslope, Habitat! You guys serve great food at a reasonable price, so don't die out! 

P.s. Truffle fries are still good, but its hard to go wrong with shoestring fries drizzled in truffle oil and cheese.

I would recommend giving the cafe a few months to sort through this hiccup, and then return again for their food. Seems like from the reviews, I'm not the only one who noticed their downhill spiral. Perhaps wait for the reviews to indicate that this cafe is improving, otherwise, don't bother. Plenty other cafes around Singapore to pick from with much better food for the price you're gonna be paying.

2nd visit - A disappointment

I mus admit, the first time we came to Habitat (probably about a year ago), it was a lovely experience. I remembered the food was excellent and the coffee was great. This second visit has been relatively disappointing. Food took half hour to come and when I was ordering orange juice, the staff told me they only had 1 orange left. I ordered banana pancakes for my tot but the pncake felt doughy. My eggs benedict could potentially be the worst Ive had with cold poached eggs and honey glazed ham that had a vinegar taste to it.
