Revisited Working Title with my IAAF Level 1 course mates recently, which was about a year later from my first visit. Rekindled my liking for this indie and rustic looking cafe which is located along Arab Street of Kampung Glam.

Above this humble and relaxing space is a 5-storey travelers lodge. Right behind the counter/kitchen is this cozy corner where you can chill and get some work done. WiFi is available as well.

During this visit, we had some snacks and dessert: Truffle Hash Browns ($8.9), Salted Caramel Nutella Tart and Churros ($12) which is relatively new on the menu.

I never knew that Churros was deep-fried! It's essentially like Chinese you tiao, only that it's coated with sugar, cinnamon powder and chocolate dip.

Mains, All day breakfast and craft beers are on their menu too! Perfect chill out cafe being it in the day or evening.

Full review with pictures here: http://mshuilingg.blogspot.sg/2015/02/working-title-cafe.html

The cafe is located right under a backpacking hostel and it gives off the retro yet cosy feel upon entering the cafe. There are pies from Windowsill right at the entrance so if you're craving for Windowsill pies, Working Title might be the better alternative in terms of location.   I would not recommend their Honey Lemon chicken wings as they use CP Honey Wings and not those chicken wings cooked from scratch! I am extremely confident about this as I'm an avid fan of CP products and Honey Wings is my most preferred frozen food!  That tin of chicken wings cost us $10 for just ~12 wings when I can purchase 1 packet at $5.50 with the same amount of wings haha   As I'm not a fan of Rosti, I didn't really enjoy their rosti set as shown above. The sausage tasted weird and the rosti is identical to Hashbrown. In conclusion, I wouldn't make a trip down to this cafe again as their Menu is extremely limited and I felt that although the variety of food is extremely limited, the ambiance of the cafe managed to balance the overall satisfaction.

Atmosphere is nice however bad ventilation. Whole place was filled with smoke and grease from kitchen. Clothes, hair all ended up smelling like greasey smoke.

Ordered american burger $12.90. The vege was not fresh had to remove two completely yellow vege. This should go to the bin not served to customer. Burger was not nice. For 13 dollars can get a real freshly made burger from Fatboy 

Friend ordered big breakfast $13.90-$14.90. Very disappointed. Two piece of Bread was from normal supermarket mass produced loaf. Hash brown was the frozen kind you buy in a big bag and fry it. Two slices of sandwich meat was not fresh, one was almost completely oxidised and hardened, the kind you leave out in fridge too long, should go to bin instead of serving it.

While the presentation of all the food is nice. the quality of food is cheap unfresh materials packed in a nice presentation with a overpriced price tag.

One more thing, kitchen is so small the poor staff are standing at any available space to cut vegetable etc. This includes standing in the way of the narrow path to the seating area at the back.

Not returning to this place again. At least not for the food.

Quite a wait...

It seems like there is a common theme among the reviews here - service is not prompt.

My friends and I ordered a salted caramel chocolate tart and choco mint pie and they took about 10 minutes to serve us, when they could just take them out from the display chiller. I will not comment on the desserts as the latter was from Windowsills Pies and while I dont know where the former one is from, for sure it's not made by them.

There weren't many customers in the cafe and we did not understand why we had to wait pretty long for it.

Also, we smelled like fried food as we sat indoors and the frying of food was done at the same place too. If only they can improve on their ventilation system.

If only there is an option for no stars at all for this joint. Horrible service from a particularly obnoxious waiter. Our only orders were two cups of coffee and it still wasn't ready 30 minutes after we ordered. When we asked the waiter to clear our table, his reply was "I'm sorry but we are really busy right now." So what? Are you expecting the diners to clear the tables for you? This isn't a big cafe. It wasn't even fully seated. Granted they had a lot of orders, a wait staff of 3-4 people could have handled an outlet of the same size easily. And when we politely told him that that shouldn't be the answer you give to your customers, he had the nerve to reply with "Sorry I don't need your opinion either." Great, rest assured it's not just my opinion you won't be getting in the future.

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
