Woodshed: Hipster Cafe At Rangoon Road

Nestled at the end of Rangoon Road is Woodshed, an artsy and chic setting designed cafe with cavern styled entrance, bringing about a contemporary vibe to a mature district. According to my source, this cafe was previously an interior decor and furniture firm. At the same time, the exact design is being retained.   Woodshed Cafe has high ceiling that increased the spaciousness of the venue together with mixed and matched furniture which provides a cozy and homely feel. Loved it! Came here for some coffee, waffles ($11.9) and fries ($9.9).

For their ambience & truffle fries

http://poohlovesfood.com/2014/11/25/woodshed/ for full review with pics

Woodshed may be a little inaccessible with public transport but it is a very cosy cafe which wants to bring a homely feeling to all their patrons. The cafe is separated into two areas with the counter top in the middle. The front area is filled with bright vibrant colored sofa seats with small wooden stools or crates as table top. A relaxing area for some coffee or tea over a few pieces of desserts.

They serve mainly coffee, tea and desserts, their menu for mains is quite limited at the time i went. & so we ordered the following to try.

Tummy tea ($6.90): What an interesting name right. It’s a brew of peppermint leaves, liquorice roots, fennel seeds and calendula flower. It has a sharp sweet minty aftertaste that lingers around after drinking.

Truffle Fries ($9.90): With no mistake, really one of the better truffle fries as what other reviews mentioned. Shoes strings fries tossed in truffle oil. Crispy fries with each and every single fries infused with the flavor of truffle. Just cant stop munching on it one after another. Super addictive and tasty.

Full House ($15.90): A little different from the usual. Slice of toast with pork sausage, mushrooms, potato chunks, bacon and scrambled eggs with some greens. The scrambled eggs are quite good, runny and creamy. Cheesy pork sausage is fat and juicy too. But the potatoes are a little cold to begin with and its kind of chewy and rubbery.

Unusual Fish & Chips ($17.90): Unusually big deep fried dory with homemade batter served with fries and salad. Dory fish is fresh not the flaky kind and it’s really a huge portion!

A nice and homely place to chill out with friends over a cup of tea and desserts on a lazy afternoon. It's good for a first timer but pricing may be considered a little expensive for a second return as the price excludes 10% service charge when we still have to self serve ourselves to the water and condiments. In consideration of so many new cafes sprouting up by the days, i may rather look for some other cafes which is more worthwhile.

Nice Ambience, but the quality of food matters too!

Woodshed 204, is located at 204 Rangoon road, a 5-7 minutes walk from Farrer Park MRT station. Its location may be a bane for the cafe owners, as people who are looking for some where to grab a bite around the area, would go pass La Coffee, Old Hen Coffee, Jewel Cafe, Founder’s Bak Kut Teh, before reaching Woodshed. By then, they may have been drawn to their fellow counterparts along Rangoon Road. However, what distinguishes them from the rest, is also their location, in my opinion. Since they are located at the end of Rangoon Road, it feels quieter and more peaceful there. The interior of the cafe is much more spacious and exudes a more relaxing atmosphere than any of the mentioned cafes above. It is certainly a good place to be if you wanna chill, or get some work done.

We were not very impressed with the service provided when we first arrived at the cafe, because the 3 cafe owners seemed to be pre-occupied with their own work. We actually had to help ourselves with the menu, and place our orders on our own as we were not able to get any of their attention despite sitting quite close to the counter. Besides, we had to get our own condiments and water, which by the way, were almost empty. With so much self-service involved, we felt that the 10% service charge that we have to pay was certainly not justified, at all. Hence, we started our dining experience really grouchily.

We ordered a Smoked salmon salad, Truffle Fries, Chocolate Tart and Rainbow Cake.

The food at Woodshed may not stand out from the rest of the cafes, because they serve up a relatively simple and common fare. Jacky has introduced us to their signature dish of baked eggs in ham cups and waffles (!!!), which I would try the next time I visit them. The service may be slow, because they are quite short handed, however, I feel that the ambience of the cafe makes up for all the shortcomings that this relatively new cafe has.

Pricey

Woodshed is a corner shop somewhat sandwiched between 2 rather famed Bak Kut Teh dining options. A simple peer into the cafe, I had thought the cafe was not open for business, if not for the OPEN sign hanging at the door. 
Entering the cafe, I was "welcomed" by the smell of Truffle Fries.  I was seriously! Tempted by the Truffle Fries. However, my purpose of visiting Woodshed was to try the Waffles. I most certainly could not stomach both the Truffle Fries as well as the Waffle in a single seating.

There was more than enough seating in the cafe, at the hour I visited. Mostly friends, chilling together over coffee and a meal. 

Tables are small, chairs are wooden with a backrest.. I just did not fancy the small tables. Seems like they don't really encourage diners to order much food per table? 

After I found myself a seat, the guy at the cashier came over with the menu. Heading straight for the Waffles choice section, I decided on the Ice-cream with Waffles, with a bottle of Key Lime drink to go along with.

Service is fast. 

Waffle? Hmm... unfortunately goes below my satisfaction level. 
The Waffle was crispy on the outside but mushy on the inside. Bad. It was so wet, I found it a little.... unappealing. And so dense was the Waffle, I felt full before even getting through half of it. 

Should I return to the cafe, guess it will only probably be for the Truffle Fries.
Well, if you are looking for a cafe to chill-in, Woodshed might be a good choice... with a rack of magazines for anyone's reading pleasure. The place is also relatively quiet, with a high ceiling.. you don't get a buzz of noise/music unlike some cafes I have visited.

Not worthy of your time and money

The food is way below mediocre to be considered gourmet. We had sandwiches - which has 2 barely toasted bread with hard boiled eggs and greens and smoked salmon/bacon depending on what sandwich you ordered. It's not something exquisite, it's something anyone can make. If you are looking for good coffee, this is not a place for you. A home nescafe dolce gusto coffee machine makes better coffee than them (we tried flat white and cappuccino which are pretty standard). You usually think a place like that would compensate in providing exceptional service but unfortunately the waitress with a pokerface didn't seem to like us there. If you are looking for good food/coffee, please skip this place. Now I wish someone would've told me that.
