LA BONNE BOUFFE

Room to improve...

Stumbled upon this quiet place (entrance is hard to find, depending on where you start around the building!) for lunch. Perhaps because it was a Monday when most cafes are closed, or because it has a loyal following, there was a very healthy crowd when the doors opened at noon.
 I ordered the Egg Benedict with brioche, ham and bacon. Forty minutes later, the food came. Unfortunately, both the eggs and the meat were cold, very cold. Quite a shame, because the food looked nice, and tasted nice. And I really wonder why I had to wait forty minutes for something that was perhaps precooked, out of the fridge...I made the effort to tell the folks there, so hopefully they will take my input.

Only if you're desperate for a brunch fix

November 8 is located at Upper Thompson, one of the best places for cafehoppers to be at, due to the close proximity of the popular cafes, such as Habitat Coffee, Pacamara, Brownice, One Man Coffee, Salted Caramel… etc., just to name a handful. However, they are located within a building, known as Thompson V Two. Which is apparently a really weird a** building, with weird locations for their escalators, entrances and exits. On our first visit, I believe we spent 15 minutes on a wild goose chase, trying to look for this cafe, but ended up walking into the restrooms, lifts or running into dead ends.

November 8 is a rather spacious cafe, with a large table accommodating to big groups occupying the centre stage of the cafe, and a cosy corner at a little extension to the space, where a 2-seater sofa, and a couple of really low tables and straw chairs are placed. I thought that the lighting of the cafe was a little too dim for comfort and picture-taking purposes in the evening.

As it was full-house on that day (because everyone else has the same sense of humor as me), the place got really crowded and noisy, which spoils the entire ambience of the cafe. It was also quite stuffy as well, a common complaint amongst the patrons, even when the cafe is not too packed.

We ordered a November Egg ($18.50), Salmon Benedict ($16.50), Baked Portobello Mushrooms ($10), and a Rainbow Cake ($9).

We waited for 40 minutes before our food was served to us, and even though we asked them to serve the Rainbow cake after our meal, they served it to us 20 minutes into the wait for our mains. Not too sure if we didn’t get our message across clearly, or is it their idea to help them to buy some time. Nevertheless, we were ravenous, so we just started on our cake without any complaint, but with much confusion.

November 8 serves a rather regular breakfast fare, just like any other cafes around. What makes them stand out from the rest, is probably its rosti and waffles served with scrambled eggs and salad. It’s kinda, same same but different. Nothing too outstanding from this cafe. I would suggest for you to come here only if you’re craving for a brunch fix really late at night, as they are opened till 11.00pm from Sunday to Thursday, and till 12mn on Friday and Saturday. I believe they’ve revised their opening hours, and the one on burpple and other platforms do not reflect this, which caused us a wasted trip previously.

Quiet Brunch Place

This is a quiet café along Thomson Road. It is quite difficult to find, you have to walk around the building to find a back entrance. Overall, the café is decorated with bright colours.

We ordered the potato rosti that came with eggs, ham and salad. The rosti was pretty good, though I wished it was more crispy. I still think Marche rosti taste better. The scrambled eggs was good, not too wet. The waffle set came with sausage, bacon and eggs. The waffles were more soft than crispy. I prefer waffles that are more golden brown. The sausage and bacon were average, it was just pan fried, not additional seasonings.

We also ordered a drink, mango smoothie. It was pretty refreshing. Overall, it is a decent brunch place for those looking a quiet place to enjoy a meal.

Great Cafe Food with No Service Charge & GST!

For full review & photos,
http://summerlovestoeat.blogspot.sg/2014/11/november-8-coffee-company-11-sin-ming.html

Their waffles here were really very fantastic that u must try! Their big breakfast was equally great too. Read my food blog in more details!

I'm not sure about weekdays but during the weekends & public holidays, this cafe is always crowded and noisy within 30mins after they opened at 12pm. There is No GST and No Service Charge! The service here was average as there is no service charge. 

Do quickly place your order once you're seated as the waiting time for the food is around 30mins time! Their food & waffle quality were indeed 1 of the BEST among the cafes! So we gotta be a little more patient to wait for the nice food...
