Skip the "Magic" Coffee, but the waffles won't disappoint

Full review on http://herpenandfork.blogspot.sg/2014/12/strangers-reunion-cafe-review-sgs-best.html
The scoop of vanilla bean ice cream that came with the iced chocolate was a pleasant surprise. I couldn’t see the magic in the “Magic” coffee though. It was recommended on the menu and disappointing considering how the cafe has been touted for its coffee among some. The coffee was very acidic (perhaps because it was 2 ristretto shots) with sour undertones. At best, it was just alright. Prices here for beverages are considered on the high side for cafes.
 
 The verdict for the much raved-about waffles?
 
 It really is great. It’s a slightly different style from Creamier’s (by far my best), but I liked the fragrant aftertaste and crispy texture. It yields with a nice crackle to the knife while the inside isn't too soft yet fluffy enough. Get it.

Great coffee and waffles!

average sized brunch cafe place with great coffee.. crowded so be ready to wait for a table. i went on a monday afternoon and it was quite packed for a monday's standard. coffee is rich, aromatic and has a great bittersweet after taste. portions are huge, especially the truffle fries. Did not quite like the eggs on toast though. waffles is a must try!

Excellent Place for Dinner!

Visited Stranger's Reunion on a Thursday evening.
It wasn't easy to get here though because the cafe isn't that obvious even though it is situated alongside a main road.
It was slightly packed but there were ample tables to choose from.


Food
-------
Italian Pork Sausage Pasta
- It was quite good, the creamy sauce wasn't too thick
- The food wasn't served hot though, first bite was warm-cold.

Chicken Cordon Bleu (with Red Wine)
- Meat was tender and fragrant (no bones!)


Service
-----------
Service, I must say, is top-notch.
When I entered the cafe, I was greeted by one of them and was led to the table. They regularly asked if we were ready to order as we were looking around for them (they aren't dressed like employees; they were more like diners too)
And finally when it came to settling the bill, they always brought on that friendly smile and warm tone. This is excellent service.

- Price was a tad too expensive, considering we only ordered 2 mains.
- Waiting time was about 10-15 minutes.

Probably the BEST waffles you can find in town!

Apart from their fame for latte art, you gotta try their waffles too! It was thinly crust and crispy on the outside, yet super soft and fluffy on the inside.

Buttermilk Waffles with Strawberry Maceration & Ice Cream

So so waffles and cafe

For Full review and Photos : http://goingmerrily.blogspot.sg/2014/10/strangers-reunion.html

The name butter+milk+waffles combines 3 of my favorite things so we got the Buttermilk Waffles with Strawberry Maceration & Ice Cream $13.9. Maybe my expectation was too high after reading the raving reviews about the waffles online. Quote from Kelvin "The waffles like waffles lor" sums it up. Stingy portion of strawberries and normal tasting waffles.
