The usual cafe, though changed of owners

It's a kind of habit to settle down at this cafe, after walking or going to walk the orchard area.  Moreover, the Borders was there before, that was the usual hangout place for a meal or coffee to perk up.

So with this changed of cafe, my habit is still the same.  So far, we had other than coffee time, their breakfast meal also a good try.  Except for the dinner, nothing special about it.  But they have a very interesting dish, a glass of fries, nice to munch during gathering time.

Terrible Service Demeanour

We were dining for over an hour and taking happy snaps of the food and cakes to write a review but the Manager Josie suddenly shouted at us "No Photos Allowed!" There was no policy or signs prohibiting photos and C'mon, which restaurant nowadays denies their diners to take pics of the food. Robert Timms, please train your staff to have better service manner!

quality australian food and coffee, at a convenient location

the house of robert timms (wheelock place outlet) is an australian bistro and bar that opens real early for that early breakfast craving. the restaurant specializes in good coffee but i noticed they also have a really comprehensive menu range, and they even have some nice vegetarian choices. fans of extra-large sized macaroons are in for a treat. i had the kid-friendly french toast with fresh fruits to share with charlene, and a satisfying white chocolate latte. two thumbs up!

New Alcohol Macarons Upsized and

Click HERE full review and pictures:
 
 The House of Robert Timms is best known for their coffee but do you know they have revamped their desserts section since January? My
previous visit here was a delightful encounter with kangaroo meat and this time round it's all about boozy alcoholic sweets!
 
 Though XL-sized macarons are not novelties (they can be found at Au Chocolat), the version at Robert Tims boasts premium alcohol flavors ($7 each) such as this Barcardi Gold & Kahlua (above) and the light brown-colored Black Daniel's Whisky(see top picture).......
 
 I have found a cupcake that has more than enough cream to last me through the cake. Their Butterscotch & Caramel cupcake is brilliant as the butterscotch topping is not the typical buttercream but more like a ganache-hybrid drizzled with ooey-gooey caramel. It is rich, velvety with intense hints of cappuccino. A good combination with the cake that is.......

Love the coffee and relaxed ambience here

See the photos at http://thehungrybunnie.blogspot.com

We like Robert Timms for its lack of posers and a very appealing down-to-earth ambience. I suppose the Aussie way of living really does shine through the laidback vibe at Robert Timms. We spent about 3 hours reading the newspapers and magazines, available in-house of course, while enjoying a very slow leisurely brunch.
 
 The good thing about Robert Timms is that they aren't that popular, and so, it's usually about 80% (maximum) filled, which adds to the lazy morning feel of the place. You don't ever feel rushed to finish up so the next group hanging out in the ridiculously long queue outside the cafe can occupy your table. The place is also relatively quiet (people speak in hushed tones here) so it's really quite a relaxing place to chill for hours. However, there's a reason for the cafe's lack of a crowd. The food is just average, even if the price range is very reasonable and it's one of the cheaper brunch places in town. The truth is, you can get better eggs elsewhere. Still, balancing Robert Timms' great ambience against its so-so food, it kind of evens out. I'll be back. 
 
 We had:

1) Breakfast Down Under ($15.50): a showcase of the classic Australian brekkie, with a bratwurst sausage, a couple of grilled streaky bacon, baked beans, half a grilled tomato, eggs sunny side up and a couple of thick toasts. A few pieces of cursory greens sort of made this a complete meal. Perfectly fried eggs, generic beans and sausage but the bacon wasn't the least bit crispy and had an unappetizingly dull brown-ish tinge

2) Big Bang ($18.80): strictly for meat lovers. A combination of bratwurst and american sausages, a few shavings of smoked turkey breast and a whole beef patty made for a very filling meal. The beef, while juicy, was very full-bodied and intensely flavoured. Perfect for people who like their beef robust and "smelly". Not so much for people like us who prefer our red meat the Japanese style, i.e. milder and more delicate. Baked beans, grilled tomato, a couple of toasts and some fresh greens rounded off the kind of meat platter that would have made Fred Flintstone a very happy caveman

3) Caffe Latte ($6) was rich, creamy, rounded and robust. I loved it. Apparently, they're known for their coffee art here, so feel free to ask them to do teddy bears and the like.
