It’s always full, for good reasons. The food is very good and you will wish you have more stomach space just to do one more of the same thing or a new thing. Mind that it is a small place so be prepared to wait...More

One of the best brunch cafe served good coffee in town. Long queue especially during brunch time and weekend. Must go cafe.

I had gone to this cafe on weekdays.The service is good and fast. The tau sar pau is nice but cold.It would be better if the pau is warmer. However, I enjoy the experience. The latte is good. I will definitely come back again.

The main course is above average. The dish that stands out for me would be the chili crab fries. There is usually a queue around brunch time.

Hands down the best coffee I have ever tasted. This gem is tucked away and is easily missed. The compact nature of this cafe adds to the fantastic buzz inside. The menu choices are amazing and the coffee is next level. A must visit and...More
