Loved the food, less so on the crowd

Common Man Coffee Roasters ("CMCR") is notoriously crowded, so if possible, avoid the peak brunch/lunch hours, or be prepared to wait in line. Even at 4pm in the afternoon on a weekend, the buzzy cafe was swarming with expats and their SPG-hanger-ons, and teenybopper/YA hipster sorts. Obviously, I didn't like the ambience. The pretentiousness was exacerbated by how intrusively close the tables were to one another. I could hear everything our neighbouring diners were chatting about.

At least the food and service were faultless. The breakfast eggs were innovative, hearty and delicious, while service was spontaneous and upbeat.
We had:

1) Organic Eggs Benedict ($24) layered with luscious braised ox cheeks, a velvety smooth chive hollandaise, toasted sourdough, and contrasted with the peppery kick of arugula leaves
 2) Turkish Common Man Breakfast ($25) comprised a duo of phyllo-crusted soft-boiled organic eggs on a hummus bed, flecked with battered feta, olives, arugula, pickled cucumbers and fresh tomato slices, all ready to be mopped up by soft pita bread. I liked the bright and tangy flavours in this one.
 3) Sauteed Kale & Egg White Scramble ($19) tossed with snow peas, asparagus, broccoli, sweet potato leaves, seasoned with lemon zest crumbs and showered over with grated parmesan wisps. Light and healthy without compromising on taste

Good Coffee Break

I was at the Mohamed Sultan area and needed a bite. I popped by this coffee place.


We ordered the following:

- Croq Monsieur: $16. This is really good. Ham and béchamel sauce in between croissant which is toasted. Really good.


- Latte: $5. Coffee is nice and tasty.


- Cold Brew: $8. When this was served, I thought I was having a cocktail and not a coffee. There’s an orange peel in the coffee! The orange peel imparted a mild citrusy flavour to the coffee, which is good.


I spent $34.


Although it’s a little pricey, the food quality is good and the coffee here are good.

I tried the organic eggs benedict ($24.00) with tender braised ox cheeks, two poached eggs and chive hollandaise, with artisanal sourdough or pepita toast.

Hmm, the eggs were okay but would be better if it’s made slightly warmer.

Beef was nothing special. Didn’t really like it.

Bread was slightly overtoasted at the edges.
