This Japanese coffee import specializes in hand-dripped coffee, which is lighter and cleaner in taste as compared to kopi and the espresso drinks that we are familiar with. A must try is the plump and fluffy souffle pancake served with fruits, ice cream, whipped cream and drizzled with maple syrup.
Hoshino Coffee; a place famous for their drip coffee and pancake soufflé! Honestly, I was attracted by the window display at the entrance, the mock up look so good that tempted me to give this place a try! I been to the Plaza Singapura outlet for about three times. What make my return to Hoshino Coffee is their pancake, it so soft and fluffy, though the waiting time for the pancake is pretty long! But it taste so good with the maple syrup and the soft serve! Do try it out!
We came here to celebrate my wife's bday. She remembered dining here last year & liked the food.
We ordered 3 pasta dishes, 2 rice dishes & winter pancakes. We were advised that the rice dishes & pancakes will take 20mins to prepare.
The pasta came first & were quite nice. The pasta were cooked a perfect aldente. Would be nice to have a stick of toast to mop the sauce.
After 20mins, the table beside us already got their rice dish and yet they were seated right after us! We checked the bill & noticed the staff forgot to key-in the 2 rice dishes. We reminded them and had to wait for 20mins more.
The first rice dish arrived and halfway through eating it there is still no sign of the 2nd rice dish. We checked & were told to wait for 10mins more. It seems they have forgotten again! So we decided to cancel the dish & just finished the dessert.
The staff did apologise to us & gave 4 complimentary ice cream. So it was forgive & forget for the kids. They even gave our server 2 extra dots on the 'smile' board.
If you are expecting Tokyo Hoshino standard, you will be extremely disappointed like me. Soufflé is dry and tasteless. Coffee was still ok. Service depends on server. Kumar was really professional and attentive. Place is not very well maintained with stains on the side board we were seated against. Overall, if you've been to Tokyo's Hoshino, don't bother coming to the SG one, expecting the same taste and texture.
The service is great and the service bell at the side of table makes it even more efficient. Must try their ice coffee, i prefer to have it black. We ordered lava cake, which is a Winter special. LOVE it. Its house special pancake is just so-so to me, unless you are a super fan to pancake.
