I look forward to Micro’s seasonal toasts, which usually feature ricotta with a seasonal fruit. This time it’s rock melon, one of my most disliked fruits, but I trusted Micro to deliver, and deliver they did. The usual crusty tangy sourdough and thick pillows of ricotta are topped with rock melon, candied pumpkin seeds, mint, and some sort of orange jam that go beautifully well together. There’s no escaping the taste of the rock melon, but it’s not so bad when combined with all the other flavours.

This was a delicious quiche. It’s not oily, it has a crispy crust encasing light moist filling, and it is densely packed with salmon.

This is another one of Micro’s seasonal toasts that I’m in love with. Creamy ricotta, rhubarb poached in ginger honey, and rhubarb jam, sprinkled with orange zest and pistachio bits, on what I still feel is one of the best sourdoughs on the island. It’s a delightful mix of sweetness and tartness, creaminess and crunchiness, on a foundation of a chewy sourdough.

This was the dish I fell in love with back in the old days when CMCR was new. It’s now sadly a far cry from what it used to be. The kale and broccolini were limp and the portion has reduced. Certainly not worth the price.

It’s been two years since I last ate this. The dish has been retitled from “shrimps” to “tiger prawns” without any noticeable change in the size of the prawns, the price has increased by $4, the corn has been replaced by greens, and the size of the bread has shrunk. It’s not as satisfying as it used to be, but I still enjoyed the well-seasoned prawns, the creamy scrambled eggs, and the tangy sourdough.

This is the most affordable item on the menu for lunch. You can choose to have the eggs in fried, omelette or scrambled form. I liked that the scrambled eggs were soft and moist but not too buttery or creamy. The bread was too salty, but I liked that it was soft with a crisp toasted crust.

This place combines Pullman Bakery and Tachihara Coffee. The French toast was buttery and felt like it was made from very soft milk bread, quite unlike any other French toast I’ve tried, and very Japanese in style. The soft boiled eggs comes free if you get a toast with a drink. It’s not actually soft boiled eggs, but rather a ramen egg with a nice heap of bonito flakes on top.

A seasonal dish, this is a sweet twist on Micro’s ricotta tartine. There is the same beautiful sourdough with a chewy centre and crisp crust, and the same pillowy light heapings of ricotta, topped with persimmon purée, persimmons, candied walnuts and rosemary. It’s unique, delicious, and hearty. The mix of sourness, sweetness and savoriness, and the mix of chewy, soft and crunchy textures, complement each other amazingly. The prices at Micro keep rising but this is totally worth the $15.

Interesting dish. The scrambled tofu is not as good as actual scrambled egg, but it’s a good alternative for vegans.

Whenever I’m craving scrambled eggs, Kong Cafe is my go-to. Just look at that massive pile of moist, fluffy, creamy scrambled eggs. The salad is also nicely dressed and seasoned.

This might be one of the largest scrambled eggs I’ve ever had at a cafe. There’s so much of it, and it’s so soft, fluffy and creamy, and salted and peppered just right. Love, love the scrambled eggs so much! They gave a humongous amount of hummus too, and the toast was crispy and nicely buttered. I couldn’t finish as the portion was so large. Very worth it for the price!

Mediocre cafe food. Crabmeat was decent, but a little too creamy. The scrambled eggs were decent too, though on the tougher spectrum of scrambled eggs, whereas I prefer them fluffy. Salad vegetables were ok but strangely salty and a little oily. The toast didn’t have the characteristic tangy sourness of sourdough, so it just tasted like normal crusty bread. Probably the best features of this cafe are its quietness, the pleasant staff, and the fact that it’s open 24/7 – big pluses in my opinion.
