Ok but lack of service for families

Food is ok, nothing special but good average for a brunch place. Coffee and fruit juices are excellent. But silly is the fact that they do not offer any child and infant friendly dishes before 12. No flexibility (e.g. they denied a kids meal 11:45am). For families a no go...

Well if you are in the mood to buy expensive grocery, you can...for along with dining, there are a variety of breads, teas, spices etc to buy. There were people waiting to be seated, this being a weekend. However we got a table for two quickly. Had Mediterranean platter and Risotto with asperagus. Mediterannean platter was yummy but sadly less... More

The service was exceptionally poor; I joined two friends there recently for brunch we met at 11 am and were happy to sit and chat. But for a restaurant to leave customers for a full hour before attending to us, and then only because we initiated it is exceptionally poor! In the meantime we helped ourselves to water. Having been... More

We ate here because another restaurant we wanted to have lunch at was booked. The place looked busy, with a rapid turn-over of customers, so it wasn’t difficult to get a table for two. The waiter was prompt in handing out the menu. Orders were taken, accurately repeated, and the food came within 10 minutes. We ordered an Avocado salad... More

My wife and I had lunch here some years ago, and found it quite mediocre. Back in Singapore after a long break, we heard that there had been considerable improvement and therefore decided to try it again. Our extended family of eight had the most awesome lunch just three days ago. Every item we tried was excellent. Highly recommended 👍

Pretty lousy experience.The staff was unable to find our chope reservation initially. We asked staff to check when food not served after 40mins, no feedback. Checked again at 60mins and told kitchen didn't get the order. Staff offered 2 pcs complimentary pastry while we wait, there were 3 of us though:( Not likely to return.

Every time I visit I cannot believe I've come back. The food is invariable good but the service is beyond atrocious. However today I was served the smallest possible salmon for $26.

Quite nice brunch place on the weekend. Their image/branding is better than what's actually delivered but the food on your plate still meets modest expectations. Problem sits more with their slow service, mid to high menu prices and overpriced items for sale on the shelves inside. The oils, pastas, sauces, seasonings, etc are comically priced and their walk-in cheese room... More

If you want to spend half your lunch asking for water or to place your order or to pay the bill this is the place. However the croissant is not bad. That is the only good thing.
