Ideal breakfast buffet

What can I say - this is THE place to pig out on American or Continental breakfast without burning a hole in the wallet.  Top of the list is the egg benedict - runny with sour cream and bacon served on muffin.  Must try.  Next up, omelete with mushroom and tomato and side salad.  Moist and good.  Hashbrowns, sausages, bacons and pancakes are pretty acceptable too.

To avoid - fruits with yoghurt as well as cereals.  Not worth the stomach space.

Take your time to laze, watch TV, read newspapers, and idle the whole morning away while being served by well-trained courteous service staff.

Went there for alacarte buffet breakfast in the hotel's restaurant. It is a small but cosy area. Their eggs benedict are the best i have ever had. Only one service crew but very good and polite serivce given by him. Basics, non-extravaganza breakfast but love the privacy as it is quite a secluded area.

We came here after it was featured on TV for its Eat-all-you-can Breakfast Buffet for $19.90.

We were told that we can't sit inside (the air-con area) as it is for the hotel's in-house guests. We have to sit in the alfresco sitting outside.

After looking as it's pathetic breakfast selection, we thought we would just settle for ala-carte instead. Our orders were the American Breakfast ($16) and Eggs Benedict ($12). These sets include coffee or tea.

Eggs Ben was decent but paled when I compared it with the one I had recently at Tasting Room. The American set comprised 2 slices of toasted but stale tasting bread, chicken sausage, 1 miserable piece of bacon (cut into 2 parts), hash brown and scrambled eggs. Although the menu indicated that we have a choice of how we like the eggs to be done, we were never asked! Food arrived shortly but no cutlery. We were left there sitting staring at our food while they took their time to come with the cutlery.

To conclude, food is very average. For such standards, I am better off eating at Hans. For such prices, I am better off going back to Tasting Room; better quality fare and my prerogative of where to sit.

Staff are not well trained. The service guy who took our orders had to ask twice about our beverages.

We ordered a black coffee and tea. Despite asking twice, our order of black coffee came white, while they did not bring any milk for the tea. We also had to ask for basics like butter for the toast. The bill was incorrect - they charged us for 2 buffets. Most customer-oriented staff was the the friendly and helpful bell hop/doorman of Nostalgia Hotel who helped led us to Potion's staff so that they can sit us, and helped us get the bill.

If you wish to visit, suggested parking would be at the open air carpark of Link Hotel which is located right across from Nostalgia Hotel. Don't bother trying to park near Tiong Bahru market, it's a nightmare on

weekend mornings.

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.
