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.
