Hidden Gem in a lovely enclave

After a work appointment in the west, my colleague and I decided to head here for lunch - an interesting cafe hidden in a condominium residences.

A lovely little Australian cafe with "raw and deconstructed elegance", this cafe is constantly filled up with people enjoying its lovely coffee and food as well as chilling out over drinks. We were fortunate to snag a table. I do like the very "chill" and relaxed ambience, and the cafe was surprisingly quiet despite the crowd (who were also chattering away over meals).

I started off with a Cuppucino (SGD$5.50) served in its signature blue cup. Not bad, the coffee held slight hints of fruits, if my detection skills served me well. What would have made it more perfect would be some cocoa powder sprinkled atop the foam.

For mains, the colleague had the JM's Breakfast Sandwich (SGD$16.00) - with rocket salad, bacon, egg, roma tomato, avocado and kay's relish. It was a very hearty breakfast that was surprisingly not greasy, and tasted good - comfort food at its best.

I succumbed and selected the JM Breaky Muffin (SGD$14.00) - sunny eggs, leg ham, Hollandaise sauce, roma tomato and rocket salad. The muffins were exactly the way I like it - sandy textured, slightly sweet and not too soft. The combination with the eggs, ham and tomato made a simple home-styled meal awesome. The potato salad on the side was commendable as well - tender potato chunks with egg mayo dressing. All in all I enjoyed the dining experience at this secluded and serene area, and the food was very satisfying. Never mind the inaccessibility - one wouldnt want their new favorite haunts to be over-crowded with too many people.

Located at the heart of One North Residences, this little niche cafe makes an ideal getaway for that quick  breakfast.

At a recent visit, I tried their scrambled eggs with smoked salmon ($24) which came with two pieces of toasted bread and a grilled tomato.

For something heavier, there is the Chorizo Pasta ($18), linguine with lots of olive oil, chives, mushrooms in a pesto like paste. The pork meatballs were a little on the tough side, as if it was microwaved.

Do not expect much from the food as it is a simple kitchen. However, if you are looking for that cuppa and place to relax, Jimmy Monkey Cafe will do it for you.
