Symmetry Cafe is a new breed of cafes in Singapore that are heavily influenced by the Australian casual dining trends. It is a cafe by day and morph into casual restaurant bar by night. Definition of bar, is that alcohol is definitely involve here. A place for people to gather to enjoy a great meal and drinks. Food sharing are welcome.

We walk in without reservation that morning and was lucky enough to get a table. The service staff politely inform us that due to prior reservation, we need to vacate the table at a certain time. No problemo, so we quickly placed our brunch order.

Hickory Corned Beef & Hash ($22) catch my eyes, while LD's pick Truffle Egg Mushroom ($21) with extra hash brown. My caffeine pick was Latte and LD's goes for Chai Tea Latte and Calpis Soda drink.

My Corned Beef served in a cast iron pan. Food is kind of interesting, as it looked like it is all mash up together, but all the ingredients gel well. I poke the egg to allow the yolk to ooze to the corned beef, and using my bread to scoop it. The corned beef is flavourful and not salty, while the potatoes and salad give a different texture to the dish. The bread used here has a similar texture to the soft colourful traditional coffeeshop bread. It will be good if there is another slice of bread to polish up the proteins.

LD's Truffle Egg Mushroom comes with scrambled eggs, sautéed mushrooms, truffle oil, berries butter and toast. Served on a long plate, the presentation is just gorgeous. The eggs are fluffy and the mushrooms are nicely executed, however she was a little taken back by the pungent smell of the truffle oil. It seems the kitchen was a little too generous with it. The hash browns are crispy and the berries butter goes down well with the toast.

The latte is smooth and well balanced. While the Chai Tea Latte is a bit on the sweet side and lack of cinnamon according to LD. We both enjoy the calpis soda, although it is slightly flat, missing the carbonated feel of soda.

Service was good and polite, however it can be slightly hard to catch their attention. The ambiance here is very good. Crowded yet relaxing with lounge music playing in the background. They try to maximise the space available with counter seats as well. We manage to check out before the customers that reserved the table arrives.

Overall, Symmetry Cafe / Restaurant Bar are one of the best cafe that we tried this year. The food is great and the same can be said about the atmosphere. The best part, you can actually make reservation online, so you won't get disappointed. Drinks price for brunch is on the high side, more like bar price instead of cafe. Thanks Fundamentally Flawed for the recommendations. Cheers!!

Overrated Brunch Place

I will have to say the brunch is mediocre. I do not know what the fuss is about. The Symmetry Eggs Sur Le Plat was the best one that we tried out of the menu. It came in a hot plate with a tomato based sauce - Spanish-influenced dish. The truffle fries were pretty good. The rest of the selections were unmemorable. The Broccolini & Eggs were average. The waffles was nothing special. The big breakfast was also forgettable. I will definitely not come back here for the brunch. It is overrated

Consistently good brunch

The seafood frittata ($24, on their brunch menu) at Symmetry, Jalan Kubor is a delightful plate of fluffy, flavoured omelette dotted with chunks of salmon (cooked and smoked), prawns and crabmeat. Topped with a complementary avocado salsa and chive cream cheese.

It's no wonder that the are on our list. What list? Take a look http://bit.ly/1xAGnRl
