Hi I was there over the weekend and had a great time. The cafe is pretty casual and laid back and the staff are friendly though the play around with each other a bit..but still attentive. we came for brunch and had the eggs, duck confit and was skeptical but tried their chicken and waffles and also a prawn pasta with a curious delicious sauce ( i tasted prawns, crab , lots of pungent garlic and chilliiiii...) Our dishes did not come all at once but we did not have to wait that long for it .but we all agreed.. it was yummy, comfortingly good.
We had only space for 1 cake which we devoured...the red velvet..best one yet.
Full review HERE
When our mains arrived and they were rather meh, we held out for desserts, thinking that the cakes must be good (look at that amazing display of cakes. so beautiful.)... but we were sorely disappointed. It was a very expensive meal for a cafe as well and the food was really not worth what we paid.
The ambience and service were good though, the decoration and set up was all very nice and really did raise our hopes for a nice meal.

As its name goes, this cafe is really serious about their cakes! They have at least 15 different kinds of cake when I visited! But they also do have brunch items on their menu.
Pancakes with Cheese ($12++): They have a few types of pancakes, with strawberries, with blueberries or with cheese. I thought the latter was the most unconventional so I decided to try it.The fragrant smell of the pancakes wafted to my nose before it was presented right in front of me. Three big and fluffy pancakes and I beamed right at that sight! The cheese was stuffed in the pancake batter and it was rich in flavour! But the downside is that it makes you feel full very fast. I stopped at 2 pancakes because of that + I just had to leave some stomach space for the cakes!! Oh and it got a little bit dry afte a while so some maple syrup would come in handy.
Beef BBQ Grilled Cheese Sandwich ($13++): Triple cheese grilled sandwich filled with smokey BBQ beef brisket. Never underestimate sandwiches. This is a fine example of a sandwich done right! The beef was not too tough, plus the cheese was just ooey gooey and yum! And there, the toast, was nice and crispy! What an all rounder. Well if I had to pinpoint, it would be that they gave a bit too much toast because there were carbs leftover.
Strawberry Shortcake ($8.50++): And now on the cakes! This was a weekend special so we thought we should order it. Initially I was scared off by the thick layer of cream. But when I sliced my fork through the (very tall) cake, I realise it's actually cream cheese, which was delightfully light! The sinful-ness meter just went down a few notches hah. Frosting aside, the sponge cake was also light and just the right sweetness, and went hand-in-hand with the strawberry cream. Both of us like this cake!
Blueberry Lemon Cake ($8.50++): Blueberry is my favourite food so I was kinda attracted to this cake. Plus the light blue frosting was so pleasing to the eyes! I know it's just food colouring but I thought the flavour is relatively uncommon so I suggested trying this. Hmm I thought this cake tasted a bit oiler and sweeter than the first cake. Well ok yeah because of that it was also more moist. But we still prefer the first cake.
Overall, the food is of good quality. I really want to return to try more of their cakes! The ambience became better ever since they converted an alresco-dining style to all indoors in the comfort of airon!
