Quaint Environment; Delicate, Delicious Food

For the complete review that also features pictures, do visit Rafflespress.com :)

I dropped by One Man with Gaby for a casual Sunday brunch – perfect company, considering how photogenic the vintage-inspired interior is. Its rustic wood tables and benches, garnished with flowers and photogenic glass jars, just cry out to be Instagrammed. Little wonder that One Man Coffee has been making the rounds on social media for some time, ironically receiving rave reviews less for its coffee and more for its dishes.
 
 It being a hot day, Gaby ordered an iced chocolate ($6) while I ordered my usual iced mocha ($6.50). The iced chocolate had a distinct bittersweet chocolate flavour, which unfortunately was not to Gaby’s taste but should please all dark chocolate lovers. She enjoyed her drink with a side of vanilla ice cream ($3) mixed in, which added a milky richness that made it far more enjoyable. I found this iced mocha slightly too watery for my liking, although the flavour profile was certainly there.
 
We ordered the famous brioche french toast with caramelised banana, salted caramel and fresh cream ($10). She and I enthused about the bananas, which hit the sweet spot just shy of cloying and had a melt-in-your-mouth texture. The french toast itself was perfectly charred on the outside and fluffy on the inside. She did think it could have been thicker and more thoroughly soaked with batter, and found the caramel a little burnt for her liking.

The place is quite empty during weekdays' lunch hour. The cafe shares the place with a pizza outlet called Crust. During the day the cafe operates, while the pizza outlet operates at night.
The menu is quite limited and clearly printed on the board. There is also a limited selection of cakes and pastries in the wooden display shelf, which is sourced from Edit Patisserie and B.O.A.. The cafe uses beans from Axil Coffee Roasters for its coffee. There is both indoor and outdoor dining in area. There is no GST or service charge, it only accepts cash and NETS for payment. It is a no frills cafe, where one pays for order at the cashier before food is served. Remember to help yourself to the iced water at the counter.
Magic ($4.50) Maybe I have better version of Magic before. The version of coffee here is not strong enough.
Gashouse Egg with Bacon Jam ($10) Egg-In-The-Bread-With-The-Hole-In-The-Middle The bacon jam has a texture similar to Hae Bee Hiam ( Spicy Dried Shrimp Sambal), but tastes in a sweet way. Although the toast looks a bit too char, it has a soft and fluffy texture. It does not taste too cheesy and the egg yolk is still ruddy. I also topup $3 for Candied Bacon which looks char and reminds me of Bak Kwa.
Salted Caramel Danish ($4.50) It is light and flaky, while its filling is not too sweet.
Overall the food is not bad. Service is quite fast, maybe because there is only a handful of customers around.

took them 15 minutes to clean our table, 20 to bring our coffees and another 5 to bring a pain au chocolat. The pastry comes with a ton of icing, really unappetizing.coffee is ok. All in all not value for money.

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
