Simple Lunch

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.

Bad service, ok coffee, overpriced "icy" pastry

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.

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.
