good service good food

Excellent service, was given an iced matcha latte when we ordered a hot one. Was offered a complimentary iced matcha while they whipped up a hot one. We didn't take up the hot latte but were thankful. Four cheese rye bread was amazing. Made me more hungry after I ate it. Nice ambience, service is quick

One Man Coffee

For more details, please visit http://www.foodesteem.com/2014/07/one-man-coffee.html One Man Coffee is well-situated along Upper Thomson Street where vast food stalls and restaurants are held at. It will be nearer if you come from Lornie Road direction, and after passing by the petrol station on the left, One Man Coffee will be just a short walking distance away from you. To avoid any confusion, One Man Coffee is located within Crust Gourmet Pizza Bar.   Butter Croissant with Homemade Berry Jam and Butter ($4.50). Croissant is soft and fluffy, and most importantly, without the jam and additional portion of butter, the already buttered croissant is sufficient enough to eat it plain.   Gashouse Egg with Bacon Jam , also well known as "Egg-In-The-Bread-With-The-Hole-In-The-Middle" ($10.00). Be careful of your flowing yolk once you cut it through. Bacon Jam is another interesting item on the dish. Both bacon and jam blended well, and I would have liked to purchase some for home-use.   Brioche French Toast ($10.00) with Homemade Berry Compote, Candied Walnuts and Fresh Cream. Berry Compote can be a little sour, but toast is being soaked by the cream which make it soft and not dry to stomach in. Comes with a mild cinnamon taste, and also well-faved most people!

Awesome gashouse egg!

I took the MRT to Marymount which was about 5 minutes away from One Man Coffee. Take exit A from Marymount MRT, cross the road from SPC petrol kiosk, and continue walking along Upper Thomson Road. You will reach a row of shop houses filled with cafes, restaurants, spas, and random little shops. One Man Coffee shares the shop space with Crust Gourmet Pizza Bar and it might be hard to locate the cafe. Look out for a row of chairs that spells "Coffee" in front of the cafe.

I ordered a latte ($4.50) because I wanted something warm in my belly. I'm not much of a coffee person but this was not bad.

Eu recommended the Gashouse Egg with Bacon Jam ($10). I decided to go with that and butter mushrooms ($2). It was incredible! A layer of eggs and melted cheese sat on a thick slice of toast, the bacon jam was sweet and tasty, and the butter mushrooms were juicy and delicious. I would definitely recommend this to my friends.

Nice food, soso coffee

A cafe that has sprung up in the Thomson area a few months back. It's a cafe by day and a pizzeria by night which I think makes so much economic sense. I've walked past this place many times before in the day and it's often dead. Zero business at all. And now that One Man Coffee started operating here in the day, it's so lively with all the chattering of the cafe goers.


The Brioche French Toast was soft and fluffy; you almost didn't have to chew it. The berry compote was really fresh and goes so well with the toast. I don't usually eat nuts but I tried the candied walnuts and couldn't stop reaching out for more. It's pretty addictive! So crunchy and slightly sweet which helps to remove the raw nutty taste.

My favourite is the Gashouse Egg a.k.a Toad In The Hole a.k.a Egg-in-the-bread-with-the-hole-in-the-middle with bacon jam ($10) (yesthe name is that longggg). I loveeee the bacon jam, it tastes like bak kwa! I wished they gave more of that. The second time I went, I requested for the egg to be runny 'cos I hate sunny side up with cooked yolk. The bread ended up less toasted and hence less crispy. I guess we can't always have the best of both worlds?


I would definitely order The Toasted Butter Croisant with Honey Ham and Melted Cheese again. It's such a great comfort food 'cos it's so satisfying and is just a perfect breakfast item. The croissant is light and flaky and it's my second favourite after the one I had at CMCR.

A nice brunch except for the very raw egg

During my first attempt at wanting to check them out on a Saturday late morning, my family and I were left waiting (outside) in the heat for 45 minutes. And no, we din our seats after waiting so long. We left for chicken rice cause we were told there was still a long list before us. I headed back alone on my second attempt. And who would have guessed that I still had to wait for 20 minutes on a weekday, 2pm! I guess everyone’s out enjoying their June holidays

And from the menu, I ordered:-

1) Baby spinach salad with prosciutto, feta, dried cranberries and toasted pine nuts, $10 – Frankly, I din know spinach leaves tasted so good! A new favourite! And every leaves was generously tossed with the dressing. However, I did feel a bit more effort could have been put into the salad to make me more willing to part with my $10
 
2) Gashouse egg, $10 – The first bite of the cheese and toast was bliss. I love my cheese! But as I sliced further into the toast, I was taken aback to realise my egg was undercooked. Just look at the picture. The yolk simply rolled out. The whites around the yolk was not cooked. I remember reading a review sharing of One Man Coffee’s inconsistency in getting the egg done. Well, I guess it must be my unlucky day. So dear One Man Coffee, please look into this. It’s a yummy dish, but you really need to think of how to ensure the egg is done nicely for every customer. Egg problem aside, I must say the bacon jam is really good! It's very much candied minced bacon which tasted somewhat like our bak kwa (肉干). Nice
 
3) Brioche French toast with homemade berry compote, candied walnuts and fresh cream, $10 – This is what I came for, and it certainly did not disappoint. Crispy on the outside (although edges of brioche was slightly charred), moist and soft on the inside. The chopped nuts contributed an interesting contrast to the textures. And I think they could actually do without the berry compote, which in my opinion, stuck out like a sore thumb. 
 
4) Latte, $4.50
 
And I say, do drop by either very early or be prepared to wait really long like me (^^lll) And for those who have not heard, One Man Coffee is sharing the space with Crust Pizza. So if you decide to drop by on the weekends, you get to order the pizzas from Crust Pizza too! If not, there’s a small cupboard beside the cashier which carries pastry and cakes. Service wise, I got to say they can improve on handling the crowd. The unseated crowd that is. But hey, I guess we just gotta give them a little more time eh? Cause besides their not-so-good skill in managing unseated people, they are pretty friendly.
