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.

Don't eat here...

Randomly ate here whilst waiting for a movie, drawn in by the amazing looking cakes and macaroons on display. Sadly, this was the best aspect of the visit.
 I ordered a Roast Chicken salad, cost $15, as there was a similar salad in the "take-out" fridge and it looked pretty decent. The take-out salad cost just under $10 so I figured "Well $15 seems a lot for salad, but at least the portion and quality looks good based on the $10 one..."
 How wrong I was. I literally had to force myself into very small bites, eating very slowly, to make the meal last longer than 30 seconds. Compared to the considerably larger portions u get a places like Chili's for just a few more dollars, this was pitiful and the chicken was dry (of which there was also very little btw).
 
 If I'd have had time to complain and wait for another dish, I would have. Will never eat here again. And someone should really tell their staff that smiling and eye contact costs nothing, but is worth a lot.

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

 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.......
