Back to Brawn & Brains for my weekly "me" time (and also to study) and pleasantly surprised by the special appearance of this cake today — it's definitely been a while since they last dished out cakes here!
The slice is pretty big for $6; thickly sliced and all. The crumbly cake was comforting with a light zing from the lemon that lingers at the back, while the glaze antes things up a little more and gives it a complimenting sweetness. Chopped pistachio bits on the top adds a little crunch to the cake as well. Works great with the Long Black at the side!
On weekends, this child-friendly cafe along Guillemard Road is always bustling with activity. They don't take reservations, so come early with a group of friends to snag a seat at one of the two coveted communal tables. Otherwise, be prepared to sit at the counter seats by the window. The menu is written on the chalkboard left of the cashier and while the number of offerings are limited, you can be assured everything is satisfying. Of the five mains, get the egg-cellent Oven Baked Molten Eggs on Tortilla and Melted Cheese ($16.80) that comes with thinly sliced avocado, cherry tomatoes and smoked salmon. The two ready-to-burst molten eggs promise a river of liquid gold, so have your cameras ready to catch all the runny action. If you're dropping by at non-meal times, opt for their tasty Curried Chicken Wrap ($11.90) or their Earl Grey Croissant ($4.20). Pair these bites with a Flat White ($5) or their Cold Brew ($7.80), and just while away your afternoon with a good read.
Avg Price: $25 per person

Apparently a must try!
The eggs were baked over (what i would think) is a tortilla wrap and buried with 🧀 😋
🍳 Runny and perfectly done...
🥑 = ❤️, and they were pretty generous with the serving
Its a little pricey for breakie even though the serving was pretty huge. But hey, there's smoked salmon 😏
Verdict: 👍🏼 definitely a place to go to if u would like to slurp some yummy cheesy eggs for a wee breakfast treat.
A very pleasant dish that I enjoyed the more I tucked in. Pretty generous with the chicken pieces which was covered in a boldly flavoured curry sauce (albeit just a tad too sweet for me). The greens as well as the dollop of yoghurt was a thoughtful idea that balanced the whole dish lest it got too one dimensional. Tortilla wrap was well toasted, and cracked nicely with each bite. I had fun flipping it open and eating it like a mini pizza too!
I couldn't help thinking it would have been really interesting if a more "spicy" authentic Indian curry was used instead of this sweeter version which reminded me of a curry puff. Kinda like an Indian fusion dish.
Still, a great dish that I would love to come back for.
+very friendly service though note that no complimentary water is served.
Favourite place for post climb. Coffee and chocolate. What's not to love. 😍

The portion is generous and is more than enough for one person. They have salmon, cherry tomatoes, avocados and spinach as sides. I initially thought why the base of this dish so crusty one? Only realize it is tortilla after reading it online. XD Anyways i love to eat the tortilla with the avocados~
Can't go wrong with jiggly eggs and crispy bacon in your meal. Lovely service by the boss lady.
This cafe is situated among the neighbourhood area and it gives off a very warm and cozy feeling. The price of the drinks are slightly costly but it's the appropriate amount for a good catching up session with friends. The pastries were selling at 2 for $8 and they were pretty good. I would recommend this place for small dates and good catching up session with friends!
There's many cafes around, but I reckon that there is only one out there that serves a wide range of Pulla to go with coffee. This is the latest of the lot — a Pulla that actually feels pretty Christmas-sy especially where within the bread lies a core that's filled with tart yet sweet dried raspberries while surrounded by swirls of bittersweet dark chocolate. Very comforting with a cup of coffee on the side.
haven't been here in a while and i really like the new (or not so new) interior design! super chic and clean haha of course i had to get the raved about breakfast item and was definitely not disappointed. cheese was thick and eggs done just right. i don't like avocados and smoked salmon but they couldn't provide me with an alternative which i thought was a real joy kill :-( i mean is it that hard to throw in some sausages or sth..............
Cutesy fun-sized Christmas Pulla packed with a whole lotta fun, with colourful fruity bits. Was hesitant when they described it as something like a fruit cake, but thank goodness it wasn't cloyingly sweet at all. Topped with gingerbread-star for more merriment.
Great ambiance, defs got the Aussie cafe feels🤗 would definitely recommend their coffee! As for the oven baked eggs, better to share✌🏻 after all, sharing is caring!
A special Pulla for the Christmas season — dried, candied fruits that screams Christmas all in the fluffy bread that is topped with a Scandinavian spice cookie that exudes of light but very detectable ginger aroma that lifts the entire flavour profile of the bread. Very festive especially with a sprinkle of icing sugar on the top.
