    The Kong Bak Pau (or Asian Sliders) were so yum yum delicious and at only $7.50. It definitely matched well with their smooth (albeit mediocre-tasting) coffee. Friendly service too, love this place!

    Went here for a Latte after lunch. Supposed to be top 10 in Singapore, but I wouldn't agree with that. Great place for brunch. Go early cuz it gets VERY busy. Will definitely go back for food sometime

    The Truffles Mushroom Sandwich is made with whole grain bread, truffle oil, grilled portobello mushroom & rocket greens. A very tasty sandwich that is light on the palate. A MUST TRY! $11 (Jan 2014)

    The Jamaican Pork sandwich is by far the best sandwich on the menu. The Mediterranean Lamb sandwich nowhere near. Breakfasts are small portions but tasty worth keeping in mind if you want to fill up.

    Food is amazing! The brunch is a must try, for over-easy egg lovers, finally a place that does not give u a fried egg instead... Two thumbs up!

    Nestled in a trendy expat area Tiong Bahru. Love the strong coffee flavour here. You have to order at a counter the moment you walk in the door. Worth it, as part of visiting this neighborhood.

    The poached salmon is so creamy! Big portion thats meant to be shared! Bread is crisp and good. Muscle Susan or Susie salad is a good mix.., pumpkin was thin and crunchy... Love the figs!

    The coffee is flavorful and acidic which i normally don't like but this one is amaZing! The latte art did not disappoint either. However I had better red-bean filled bun in tous les jours jakarta

    Singapore's take on hipster coffee is about what you'd expect. Very good coffee at a premium price with good, though sometimes pretentious service. The drinks are excellent, especially the cold brew.

    Nice place to chill out. I like the sandwiches more than the salads as some veggies not too fresh. Will come again for other dishes.

    Lovely coffee that you could savour the coffee within. Cheaper than conventional coffee chains. Be prepared to queue for approx 10-15mins! Absolutely worth the wait! :)

    Who would have thought this cafe sells the best Tau Sa buns I've ever eaten? Kong Ba buns are on the Asian slider too!

    Had a breakfast of cappuccino n a cookie. Nothing to rave about. In fact any reg coffee chain can match it, some even better. Will ve to try the real food minus the cap next visit

    The pork buns (Asian Slider) were really tasty. The service isn't very good, they rush you a lot even though you pay upfront and it's empty. The coffee is good but it's a bit too acidic.

    Avo toast is the best in Singers. Do try their tau sa pau (red bean paste bun).

    Only suitable for eat-alls... Too much mix of meats. Kong bak is thicker than my face, hubby prefers traditional thin slices. Too much star anise. Tau sar pau fresh and smooth but not to die for.

    The weekend brunches are from 8am-6pm on saturdays! Choose the Cocotte & Eggs Benedict for choice l'ouefs not just for mornings.

    Jamaican Pork Sandwich: Pretty good stuff, reminds me of the very old (15 yrs back) PS Cafe's green curry chicken mango chutney sandwich. In other words, it's interesting, they got it right.

    Coffee is a bit off even though it comes with nice coffee art. The tausabao is quite good though.

    Great place to hang down at Tiong Bahru. One of the pioneers turning the neighbourhood into a hip place to be seen in. Serves breakfast too !

    Coffee always consistent. Had the eggs cocotte, I would prefer more spinach portion and less mushrooms.

    Area is compact and it gets crowded during brunch. Loved the truffle mushroom toastie. The Mediterranean lamb toastie wasn't bad either. Coffee is just okay.

    Nice place for brunches. I felt a bit packed: they squeezed as much table as they can. Ask for stay in the room outside. Small juices 8$ but good cakes 7-8$.

    Coffee: My personal yardstick 4 gd coffee is how they concoct their long black. The 1 here was generously thick & fragrant

    You won’t go wrong with the steamed bun – a softer, fluffier and way bigger pau than old favourites like Tanjong Rhu Read more

    Their Truffle Mushroom Sandwich is a definite winner. Goes well with the good coffees they serve.

    The coffee can be thrown out the window, like engine oil. The Long black is definitely not using the right beans, sour beyond palatable taste and the piccolo is way too strong. Worst coffee ever in SG
