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.
Maybe I have better version of Magic before. The version of coffee here is not strong enough.
Gashouse Egg with Bacon Jam ($10)
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.
