Dropped by for breakfast one morning whilst on the way to Parkway Parade.
Wow, this place is noisy. Not that it was busy with patrons, because it was only about half-full. No, it's the less-is-more approach in decoration used that causes the high noise level. Either way, one thing's for sure, forget about a nice chat over breakfast.
Would be nice to be greeted with a welcoming look as you walk in, or a smile or a nod, some kind of acknowledgement. Alas, no such thing. Same when we left by the way: no one bothers to acknowledge you. Disappointing, taking into accoun the modest size of the establishment.
You have to order and pay up-front. Not sure why that is, but it lends the place somewhat of a hawker ambiance. That said, it's mostly a young clientele here, so if they're ok with it....
I'd ordered scrambled eggs on toast, which came with a single slice of bread, which was rather bland. The eggs tasted quite ordinary. My friend ordered the salmon/guacamole, which was good.
I had a cup of English Breakfast Tea and my friend had a fresh OJ. The tea was tepid, so I asked a member of staff to replace it. He gave me a refill, but it was just as tepid. The OJ was nice, included pulp and tasted fresh.
In a nutshell, in view of the indifferent staff, the noise, my - at best - ordinary meal experience, I won't be going there again. I mean, $5,- for a cup of tea?!?! Total bill was over $26,- way too high, given the very bare-bones service that you get.
