My favourite cafe by far

For photos and the full review, head over here.

Coffee is amazing, food is great and pretty worth the buck; but the best thing about Ronin is the people behind it. The staff are friendly, attentive, and very very approachable. Every visit is like a gathering with old friends.

Their matcha latte is one of the - if not the - best in town, and their paninis are both reasonably priced and really yummy. The Big in Japan curry rice is also a wonderful dish for a more filling meal.

Scrambled Eggs, portobello mushroom, and sausages

hip and happening

Decided to check out this hidden find at Hong Kong Street, where part of it is under construction. With no real signboard and just a dark door, the real action comes in once you enter.

The dark setting has a life of its own, and upon entry it becomes a rather lively scene.

The menu is on the wall, and orders are placed at the counter. The place only takes cash.

Portions are huge. I tried the Scrambled Eggs ($9), added a really huge portobello mushroom ($3.50) and sausages ($4.50).

Better though was the French Toast ($14.50), huge thick pieces of bread slightly soaked in honey and topped with caramelised apples. Ideal for those looking for a hearty breakfast.

Service was generally nonchalant and the dining crowd tends to be mostly young hipsters and young families.

Ultra pretentious hipster spot but good decent food

Ronin the cafe is what you'd expect of just about every other coffee joint: dark, eclectic, industrial and totally hipster. The fact that the facade is completely hidden speaks volumes as to its wannabe pretentiousness. But, at least the service was warm and smiley. 

The menu's decidedly limited, with up to only 10 items available on any given day. Not a lot of choice, but heaven-sent for the perpetually-undecided. Please note that this is a cash-only establishment, so be sure to to pad your wallet accordingly.

We had:

1) Scrambled Eggs on Toast ($9): incredibly silky, but slightly undersalted. Add-ons like the juicy Pork Sausage ($4.50) and succulent grilled Portobello Mushroom ($3.50) made this a much more substantive meal option 

2) Scrambled Eggs on Toast ($9): made vegetarian with half an Avocado ($3) and Portobello Mushroom ($3.50) 

3) Brioche French Toast ($14.50): thick and fluffy and eggy and caramelised perfectly. This was paired with a softly braised green apple, grilled back bacon, a knob of hazelnut butter and sticky sweet syrup. An absolute must-try
 
4) U can ask for, off the menu Raspberry Jam ($2) and Fig Jam ($2) to spread atop the toasts. These were lovely, chunky and sweet.  
 
5) Latte ($4.20): too milky and overwhelmed the coffee base 
 
6) Wicked ($5.50): essentially a hot mocha peppermint. This was like drinking a liquid form of After Eights dinner mints.So luscious. 
 
7) Iced Ero Tea ($7+): an earl grey tea infused with fresh thyme - was a refreshing thirst quencher
