SoHo Coffee Singapore offers an extensive menu of burgers, sandwiches, whole day breakfast sets and gourmet coffee.
Met the "better than Starbucks" expectation, but didnt really exceed them. Food was decent (not good), and coffee... Well the guy was very dedicated but it tasted like something a Philips Saeco could've done. Coffee was NOT CHEAP. 2 coffees and 2 mains ($13.90 and $15.90) ultimately set us back $44.
We decided to trek off the main road and walk 5mins from raffles city to this cosy European café. We stepped in on a drizzling Friday afternoon, 2pm and were welcome with a warm greeting from the lady waitress and seated us next to the window.
Tomato soup – ($6.4), tangy and a little too sweet. Lacks robustness in the taste. Taste like heated tomato juice. They may consider using roasted ripe roma tomato and russet potato to give it greater body and robustness.
Breakfast set – ($15.90), Good platter with varieties. Scrambled egg is fluffy with dash of pepper and garnish, the pea shoots salad tasted exceptionally well with the honey mustard dressing. It was quite filling set but we managed to save space for dessert.
Tiramisu – ($6.4), it was a frozen when served and that makes it hard to appreciate the taste. After a few minutes of rest, I tried again, the taste was bland and for a moment I really think Sara Lee version tasted better. It was unappealing in presentation and taste.
Service – the lady waitress is exceptionally attentive, ensures the right crockery on the table with each item and removes the unnecessary ones promptly. My glass is happily filled each time they go below ¾. I must be day dreaming when I left the place as my phone was left behind too but the lady waitress ran after me frantically like she is the one who lost the phone. Her enthusiasm and caring attitude really touches me.
Ambience – Cosily arranged wooden furniture and B&W photos on the wall, one can enjoy on the chair or couch with a book bathing in the classical music in the background or simply dazing out of the small wooden window with a nice latte.
Soho Coffee is a new coffee place at Hill Street area (Loke Yew Street corner - near to the Peranakan Museum). Pictures: http://mrupupup.blogspot.sg/2012/10/soho-coffee.html
The Soho Coffee place is a very relaxing place. Mrupupup ordered the cafe latte ($5) and green tea latte (very nice flavour - $6.50). Mrupupup loved the music, the ambience and lovely service. Mrupupup also enjoyed the decor of black and white photos along the wall. Overheard at the next table conversation among three ladies in Soho Coffee : "Wah, this place totally relaxes me with nice coffee and beautiful jazz tunes in the store." Indeed, Soho Coffee place is a great way to spend a weekend afternoon and the place is not too crowded - loved the quietness. Do take note, the place closes early at around 6pm and serve western food dishes also. Enjoy the cuppa of latte!
Went to Soho Coffee to try out their breakfast and mains, was a little disappointed that they had limited food selection so we settled for pancakes, eggs benedict and breakfast set.
Then begun the LONGEST wait for food I've ever experienced... for pancakes and eggs!
The drinks arrived promptly but my god, we waited ONE WHOLE HOUR for our order. My colleague got impatient and the server did his best to placate our table by filling up our ice waters but with the amount of time we waited, its gonna take more than ICE WATER to compensate for our precious working day lunch hour. Even the server got frosty after we asked for more than 3 times for our food and I even caught one other server avoiding our table. (Who could blame them when their chef was inefficient)
While the coffee was good enough (it wasn't mind blowing), the food was forgettable PLUS they got my angry colleague's order wrong and took another 15mins to just get us some butter. The scrambled eggs was not bad but the eggs benedict was a little vinegar tasting.
I would recommend this place if you are patient and have a nice boss who will give you a two hour lunch. The service staff is relatively nice but I would give this place a one time chance to perhaps have some coffee and skip the mains.
