Normal food with so-so Service

One of the cafe that is so generous with their smoked duck portion but their aglio olio tasted so-so only. Truffles fries was nice but nth much to rave about. For full review: https://amandalingg.wordpress.com/2014/12/30/the-dispensary-cafe-x-chapter55/

The service here (two young ladies about 20 years old) was ....VERY cold and made me feel uneasy. I was quite unhappy with the fact that they were curt when I asked for a desserts menu and were dismissive and unfriendly (perhaps slightly rude in tone) in general. They spent a lot of time talking to each other. While I accept that service staff in F&B industry don't have it easy, there was absolutely no crowd at all and we were quite cordial to them. Both me and my friend were rather upset at this, having experienced much warmer service from other cafes. The ferroro rocher ice cream cake was a let down. I had assumed that the icecream layer would be hazelnut and chocolate. After all, it's ferroro rocher right? But NO. It was very sweet strawberry icecream sandwiched in light chiffon and dusted over with bitter cocoa powder. The only thing ferroro rocher about this was the actual ferroro rocher sitting on the cake. My problem with this misnomer (and the lack of a caption to describe that goes inside the cake, eg on a tag next to the cake) ...is that I feel they are cheating paying customers. Since the cakes at the fridge were whole cakes, I could not see what was in a slice of cake. And the uncomfortably dismissive / rude service from the girls at the counter sort of dissuaded me from asking them about the cake. Also, this was the most expensive and smallest slice of cake out of all those we ordered! Please avoid the icecream cake. The saving graces were the granny smiths apple cheesecake which tasted good and the interesting decor / ambience. But overall not a satisfying cafe experience.

we settled down quickly with our buzzers at hand after placing our orders; however, I wish the more personal type, long-established form of  service can be rendered here. With a simple menu to boot, boosted by a sizable amount of cakes and sweets baked in-house, we were quick to settle on our wants . Ham & Cheese toastie ($7.50) for me and Smoked Salmon toastie ($8.50) for him.   The former resulting in sighs of disappointment with a cold nappy limp lettuce neatly folded up into a quarter and haphazardly placed over the stack of ham. As much as the bread was an outstanding piece of carbohydrate, that all fell to pieces with the lack luster filling. The latter was an insignificant event that warranted no reviews from my companion. Enough said.   Will return for the,' much raved about' cakes the next time.

Critics' Reviews
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.
What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
