My Big Breakfast Club ($18 nett) took a while to be served, but thankfully I had my coffee (double shot as a default) to keep me happy.

Wasn't feeling a scramble or sunny-side up, so soft boiled it was for me. These are basically hard boiled eggs with a runny yolk, which is how I usually cook them on my own as snack prep. On a brunch platter, though, I wish they had poached eggs (my favourite) as an option..

Mushrooms were my choice of "meat" (for lack of a better word) - as opposed to smoked salmon, ham or bacon. These were plentiful, juicy, & appreciated. Great toasting technique on the sourdough toast as well - crispy but not hard. The spicy baked beans didn't actually feel spicy to me, but lent good flavour to the platter. Was glad to get my veggies in with the halloumi side salad, although the cheese didn't do much for me & I honestly would've been okay without it.

In all, a nice brunch platter that piqued my curiosity. I would love to try their other brunch, pasta, & bagels on the menu. Especially since this is such a nice (albeit small) place to chill at. I can totally see myself spending a nice afternoon here relaxing.

I usually wouldn't order mocktails, but the Burpple Beyond 1-for-1 deals at Lighthouse Bistro were for mains-mocktails pairs (with some exclusions). The drinks were alright, nothing fancy... But the mains were pretty good! More details in my next post.

The Kins' coffee was full-bodied & impressive; part of the reason why I'd return. I picked the largest size - a 7oz White Coffee ($6). Double shot coffee for the win! (The smaller sizes are, by default, single-shot)

The other reason why I'd return: I enjoyed the food that I had. The Tom Yum Pasta ($18) had plenty of fresh seafood ingredients, & the flavours were the right balance of slightly spicy, a little bit sour, & not too salty. I did not try the others - Wagyu Beef Yakiniku Rice Bowl ($20) & Lobster Mac & Cheese ($15) - but received positive feedback about them.

Also, their desserts were bomb. The Kins' Burnt Cheesecake ($8) was actually the original reason why I placed an order with them. If you're bringing this home to eat, I suggest putting it in the fridge for a little while to cool down before consuming, for a firmer texture.

This is the first burnt cheesecake I've ever tried, so I can't say it's the best as I don't have a basis of comparison. However, I will say this - I enjoyed its light texture, unique (but not offensive, as it is only pleasantly not pungently cheesy) flavour so much that I would want to try other burnt cheesecakes as well.

Oh, & the Carrot Cake with Salted Cream Cheese Frosting ($7.50)? Also pretty good.

(This review was written a while ago - but some, if not all, of the menu items are still available!)

While the indoor space on the 1st floor of Good Intentions may look small - check out their 2nd floor! So airy & spacious, IMHO quite a conducive space to work. Or just chill with drink in hand.

Besides cocktails, they have 13 local beers on tap at the moment, & more to come. Free WiFi is available here, which is great cos I managed to get some work done 😁

Comparing against previous reviews - looks like Gather has upped the price of the Off the Bone Galette ($18++). It had good texture, but the flavours were just ordinary. A bit too salty for me. I wasn't expecting too much from ham, gruyere, cheddar & egg though, tbh.

In all, this felt like an overpriced tea time snack... Glad I tried it once, but unfortunately I personally wouldn't return for more.

Pork Sando ($14 nett) has great smoked meat & fixins that pack a punch, however I wish the bread were more toasted & crisp. Nonetheless, a solid sandwich that satiated my hunger.

I ordered the Crabmeat Egg Benedict ($18+), as I was craving something brunchy & unique. It's conceptually appealing, but I felt there was something missing from this. Would've liked more dimension to the flavours.. Some form of heat or acidity would be welcomed. Maybe some cherry tomatoes or a dash of cayenne pepper?

Another cafe whose interior decor I really like! Am plugged in to their WiFi & streaming my Spotify playlist with earphones on - for some much-needed me time. & I do feel quite relaxed. 😁

Pro-tip: Perching your container on the dashboard while you drive home may seem like a good idea to keep your food warm under the sun... But when you make a right turn, your container is gonna slide away & fall to the ground.

Thank God my bagel fit snugly into the container I brought. It emerged from the tumble to the ground unharmed. #saynotobaddriving #strapyourfoodin #seatbeltsplease

To make my journey worthwhile (& because I'm a little fatty), I also bought Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese Bagel ($9.50 nett) to go. Bagels generally travel & keep well. Even when biting in at room temperature, it wasn't stiff or tough. The cream cheese & capers within added creaminess & acidity to this breakfast delight.

Breakfast is available daily 7:30 - 11AM. Sarnies is one of the rare cafés that start their day so early - great for all you early birds who want to catch those worms 🙂

Breakfast Set = 1 Baked Good + Coffee/Tea. There are 2 different price points: $6.90 or $5.90 per set. I bought the more expensive one, choosing both options for baked goods to cover all ground:
- Turkey Ham & Cheese Croissant
- Smoked Salmon Quiche

Both of these are $5.90 on their own, so this set is really worth it. & when you swipe Burpple Beyond's 1-for-1 deal, you save even more!

My croissant was deflated by the time I reached home, probably from being heated up before being packed away 😢 It looked sad, but was surprisingly delicious! Sufficient saltiness from the turkey ham, harmonized with the slight creaminess of the emmental cheese. The croissant wasn't crispy anymore, but if you saw this as a light & flaky piece of bread, I guess that's ok 😂

I thought I'd like the quiche more, but I wasn't a fan of the mushyness of the salmon. I'd prefer larger flakes of chunky fish.. But that's my preference. Taste wise, it was okay. It is pretty dense, with a good crumbly crust.

Which one would I order again? The croissant, actually. Even though the quiche is substantially more filling. I just liked the flavours a lot better.

Tucked in a corner of Onze @ Tanjong Pagar, an inconspicuous condominium nestled in a cul-de-sac, I don't think That Coffee & Beer Place gets much passerby traffic. It was Burpple Beyond's 1-for-1 deals that brought me here.

Premium membership gives you 2 Coffee/Tea deals, 2 Set Meal deals. I originally wanted to just get a coffee, but the breakfast set (served 8 - 11AM, Mon - Sat) deal was pretty tempting.
