Great tasting sandwiches. The sourdough bread used was awesome especially when paired with the soup. Serving size was larger than I expected which is always a good problem to have. I highly recommend this spot.

Had lunch next door so we stepped in here for coffee and desserts. The cake was actually quite good! And the coffee was decent too. Place was nice and empty but i hope this isn't always the case!

The food and drinks are ok, but the vibe of the place is slightly off.. service felt indifferent and transactional. Overall, the place felt somewhat soul-less, for the lack of a better word. Btw laksa pesto pasta is very spicy, do avoid if you can take spicy food, the qr core e-menu neglected to mention that. The sourdough bread is fine, do give it a go.

Definitely one of the most underrated cafe in sg. They served one of the best cake and good food as well. Personally like their grilled cheese with beef (sourdough) and laksa pesto pasta. Their cakes are generally great, will alwayd go for their carrot cakes (one of the best in sg), chocolate cake, red velvet cake and etc. they used to have black sesame cake (which is awesome) and also matcha with red bean, now don’t seem to have these anymore. They used to have variety pastries like sourdough croissants, now no longer have these. Hope they will bring it back.

This cafe is near Arab street and has an interesting selection of pastries. Their cake names are super interesting as well. We tried the Barack Obama cake, it was fresh not too dense nor too full of cream. I would recommend this place!

Place recommended by a friend and it’s one of her favourites 😊 We came in on a weekday night, and it was empty. We had the whole place to ourselves which was fun! I ordered the Tuna Melt set, with the fudge cake. The drinks is by default ice tea. While the ice tea is just like all other ice teas, I was taken aback a bit by the tuna melt. I thought that it was going to be like a normal sandwich tuna melt toast. But it was a little different. The tuna melt itself was creamy and good. The tuna taste wasn’t overwhelming and strong. Some tuna melt can be very disappointing with the overwhelming strong tuna taste. However, the one I had was right on point, mixed with all other ingredients. And it came on top of a crunchy baguette! The baguette was done right, crusty on the outside and super soft inside! 🧡 Mind you, we were in an air conditioned place and we were talking in between bites. Surprisingly, the baguette and tuna stayed soft and good for the whole time I was catching up with my friend. So far, my best tuna melt baguette. You can give it a try. The choc fudge is also worth trying. All the bites were dense and sinful, but I feel healthy even after finishing the slice of cake 😂😂 Also worth trying !

I don't usually leave negative review for business. However, this man (cashier) on 2 Jun 630pm is really not doing justice for the business. First cake is $11 each. A tad expensive no? Regardless, I bought 2 and he packed them together lying down (See attached photo). Cakes are ruined when I opened it. During ordering, he told me to download KaiKai app cos there is a discount in the app. Happily did it to support this app. After creating acct and he said sorry the cakes I bought cannot use the voucher. He knows what cakes I am ordering and yet he kept quiet until i was making the payment. Seriously, the cakes are not too nice too. Sub par service is what bothers me the most 😒 First and it will be the last visit to this business.

Service could be better. Not the most welcoming or pleasant staff. Fries were decent, but the mushroom soup that came with the grilled cheese was watery, not creamy or tasty. Atmosphere was nice though - quiet and spacious.

who knew they have such amazing cafe food - special shoutout to that marvelous stack of raspberry pancakes! the batter tastes amazing, and there are raspberries buried within the pancakes as well. butter and maple syrup are optional (placed on the side) so you can gauge how much you want based on personal preference!

We had a family dinner here on a weekday evening and had a nice time. A Halal eatery located within Kampong Glam, they are a cafe, bakery and restaurant all in one, serving savory brunch, dinner, and fabulous cakes all day. They offer an expansive menu and these are the mains that we went for: 🥪 BBQ Beef Grilled Cheese Sandwich 🥩 BBQ Beef Ribs 🍤 Ju’s Prawn Pasta 🐟 Uncle Jimmy’s Fish & Chips The highlight of our dinner is definitely the juicy and very flavorful Beef Ribs! My boys polished off their Fish & Chips and Beef Sandwich and finished it off with gelato for dessert. Yums! 👍🏻 Service is very good. Just thought they could step up more on decor or soft furnishings etc.

Service is bad. Vibe is so off. No one cares any the customers. Feels kinda cold and sad environment. The food is either super Bland or super Salty . One item was missing for So long and Noone came to check. I had to go up to the counter to ask for it but staff didn’t get back to me. Service is slow and bad. Food is bad. Only liked their drinks & Truffle fries. None of us managed to finish our food bcuz it’s so bad. We’re so disappointed. Don’t recommend to go here don’t waste your time. There’re many better cafes around this area.

Heard this place is closing down soon so am here for the final memories. Am quite surprised it's very quiet when news came out saying they are going to close and it's not packed. Not sure why while I was eating and a few customers walked in they didn't really accept those customers. Not sure if the place was booked for an event. Staff here quite chill, they made me order at the cashier then said I could choose to pay upon ordering or after the meal. While I was waiting for my meal they told me they ran out of chicken whether I was okay to substitute it with chicken strips I said OK but eventually there was still a pretty decent chicken. I came here with a few options in mind but ended up ordering the waffles and chicken. I guess I made the right choice as I enjoyed it a lot. The waffles was hot and super crispy and a big chunk of well marinated chicken served on top. I guess the side dish of the apple coleslaw was the surprise because it tasted so good. They didn't give extra maple syrup though I wished for more but was okay to have what was given to keep it less sweet. The hibiscus apple slush was also very refreshing and big cup I couldn't finish on the spot so I took it out and finished along the way. A little disappointed didn't have chance to try their popular cakes, seems like there wasn't any available at the time of ordering, only cupcakes and slices of pound cakes. Come have a try before it closes (hopefully not for good and if they can find another spot elsewhere)
