Nice place to catch up with friends. Opens for breakfast daily at 7:30, we had the eggs benedict which was not bad at all. And can change the base from white toasts to sourdough for personal preferences.
No service fee but all the service included, orders are taken by the table, the server would brought you water and cups...and most importantly, free WIFI.
We went there today and were totally disappointed. Most reviews referring to the horrible service applied to us. Kid's hamburger arrived after 40 minutes, which they had announced so fine. But there's probably a waiter still circling the tables with the Rodyk poached eggs for me and my wife. When after nearly an hour and a half we got upset and complained we got the bill and they only charged us the drinks. But guess how long I had to wait for my credit card to come back. Sorry, but by all means: avoid.
Overpriced and poor quality food. Horrible service. Ordered the pulled pork sandwich for $22. Small amount of pork and lukewarm fries. After I finished the sandwich and about 25 min later they then decide to bring my wife's chicken salad. Very low quality chicken and the pieces were practically cold. They charge $18 for this "dish". Staff did not even offer an apology.
I suggest to visit one of the other small restaurants near by.
I started visiting cafes a few years earlier before all the indie cafes sprouted up all over Singapore. Back then i used to regularly visit this place. I recently went back and was pleasantly surprised to discover that the menu had expanded. Food is good at a decent price, with very nice outdoor ambience, facing the river and indoor ambience (there's even a coffee roaster inside!). Only gripe here is parking. You'd have to walk a bit from your car if you're driving,
If you love brunch food, there's definitely something on the menu you'd like. Good value with no GST or service charge.
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
