We arrived at about 2pm, and the place was rather empty and quiet for a weekend. Seems like a good place to chill and they offer free wifi too! We ordered a Awesome Breakfast and a Duck Rillettes Sandiwch. Both priced at $15++. As well as an Iced Mocha ($6) for the boy.
My (NOT) Awesome Breakfast ($15++): What was I thinking when I read the description and went ahead to order this dish. Firstly, minimal preparation is needed for this dish. The croissant was stale, parma ham can probably be served from the package, red peppers, avocado can be eaten straight. The only thing that needed some form of cooking were the scrambled eggs, which was hard and not runny at all, it wasn’t even served hot enough to melt the cheese served atop of it a little.
Secondly, I wouldn’t mind paying this price for this dish, if it tasted good enough. Unfortunately the ingredients did not just come together, besides the serving of the parma ham was 3 small slices. Hey, really? For that price, I expect more, especially for such a dish that we can just throw together in less than 10 minutes at home. Not impressed. To the extent that I’m actually annoyed.
I’ve really got nothing positive to comment about the food at My Awesome Cafe. This visit has been ridiculously disappointing and it really spoilt my afternoon. For such a cafe, with that amazing design, it’s bound to be one of the hot spots to visit for cafehoppers. However, the empty seats in the cafe on a weekend pretty much sums it all up. Maybe we’ve ordered the wrong items from the menu, resulting in such an upset. Maybe we should’ve went for the highly raved My Awesome Salad. Maybe.
But this only means one thing, if you can’t get the quality of your food to be consistent and up to standards, then don’t be overly ambitious by offering so many items on the menu. With so many cafes popping up these days, if one does not up their game, there’s no competition to even speak of.
Where is the Awesome in this cafe?
