Came because I heard great things about their cakes, and I was not disappointed with the Durian Penget cake ($12.50) - real durian flesh layered within durian infused sponge and cream, this was just glorious.

However, even more amazing was their level of service - the staff were friendly and attentive, there was someone who looked like the manager walking around interacting with guests, and we even got a complimentary Sticky Date Pudding! Will definitely return!

Look at that glistening 'layer' atop the ribs - nope that's not the skin, it's the BBQ sauce. Mildly confused over the consistency and shape of the sauce and chalked it up to the pork ribs being microwaved straight out of the fridge. Do correct me if I'm wrong but the sauce do kinda look like it's from the microwaved meals of 7-11. Otherwise, ribs were tender and I enjoyed the sweet potato fries despite them being mildly cold and limp. Side note, their chilli sauce is addictive!

Partner and I agreed that the slight sourness of the dish - prefer to think that it was from the lemon zest rather than anything being spoilt - was the biggest turn off for this dish. Kind of iffy too towards the addition of hazelnuts. Overall, wasn't too taken by this supposedly 'signature' dish.

Cafe with great vibes and aesthetics, sharing a Container space with a hairsalin. Dining area was small and there was only 1 staff making the food and drinks, so our waffles (we ordered 3) came only one at a time - in total we waited about 30min+ for our waffles+drinks. Earl grey waffle had a slight peppery taste, not sure where it came from, but overall still quite enjoyable. The drink pictured on the right was a gelato + tea combination, but the amount of tea was so little because there were big chunks of ice filling the cup that the scoop of ice cream was perched on. Not worth the price tag ($10+).

Had a fun time convincing my dad (who didn't know it was a plamt-based eatery) that everything we ordered wasn't meat. Had the Omni Charger, Omni Fish and Chips, Omni Crabless Pasta, and Omni Tuna & Crab Pizza. Highlights were the Fish and Chips with the delightfully battered 'fish' and crisp fries l, as well as the Crabless Pasta (but you can't go wrong with tomato pasta ya). The Omni luncheon meat in the Omni Charger deserves a special shout-out for being a better luncheon meat than the usual canned luncheon meat. Only the pizza was a miss with a very limp and powdery dough base. Smoothies and juices were great too.

Nothing much to shout about, I personally felt the combination of salty caramel and tart strawberry/drizzle didn't work well.

Well spiced fried chicken atop an addictive truffled mash, this dish is well deserving of the many recommendations. Only complaint is that the chicken would be crispier.

Juicy and well charred chicken thigh, complemented by the line and sriracha. Very hearty and delicious, made even better with the nicely toasted sourdough and eggs Benedict.

Kombucha was the bombz, albeit a lil exp as are all kombuchas. The vanilla custard tart (I forgot what's the actual name) was pretty meh

Had the Acai Berry Bowl and the Smoked Salmon & Hash, total $29 with Burpple 1 for 1.

Was pretty wowed by the Acai bowl, despite the bland look of it. Every component was superb and made even better when taken together. Might be slightly too sweet for some so perhaps ask the staff if it's possible to have the honey on the side so you can adjust. Wouldn't get it at its usual price of $20 though.

Smoked salmon laid on hash brown, what's not to like? Didn't quite get the cream cheese slathered between the two though, felt out of place taste wise. The poached egg on the side was also overcooked and bland without any sauce.

We had the Avocado Toast with Eggs (pictured top, $18) and the Omelette (pictured bottom, $18).
- Avocado Toast was mediocre, nothing much to wow over. I did feel that the poached eggs were slightly lacking in flavour and just tasted alkaline. Skip this!
- On the other hand, the Omelette was bursting with flavour, and the addition of mushrooms, onions, and cheddar added savouriness to the already-wonderful Omelette. Go for this!
- Take note that it's an extra $1.50 if you want your drink iced! Our iced matcha latte cost $8 which was NOT WORTH
