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.

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!

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

What to Eat
Have fun with food as foreplay, and these items are easily bought at supermarkets. Just be mindful of allergies (gas and rashes are no fun) and be prepared to sacrifice the sheets
