“Little Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Popped in here to avoid a rain storm and had coffee and fries. Staff were really welcoming, the coffee was great and the fries were really good. The place is clean with a lovely chilled out atmosphere.

“Excellent shakes....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

I visited this place twice to try their food and also their milk shake. Lets talk about the shake. I tried their Nutela shake and it was simply amazing...If it had more chocolate in it then it will be heaven.

I enjoyed the shake that i came to try others as well. Trying the Vanilla and also Mocha shake, they are equally great.

“Nice place to have lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Nice place to have lunch with my workmates. I made a reservation and the staff was friendly to allocate a nice corner for us. Order pasta, tasty and nice portion for lunch. Nice selection of cake to end off for lunch and the selection for food menu is interesting. For the price that they charge, can't complain about the quality. Will definitely dine at this place again.

“Lovely, cosy place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

This is a gem of a cafe. It's tucked into a corner of boon tat street (adjacent to amoy street if I'm not wrong). It's within a walkable distance from raffles place mrt station and ang siang hill. It's a fusion western-and-japanese place that serves fare from don(s), udon, pasta and fish and chips. Slow cooked pulled pork sandwich, pork belly don and their vanilla dirt cake pudding are among their popular dishes. Lovely jazz music in the background. It's usually VERY busy during the office lunch hour between 12-2 but before and after that timing, it's pretty quiet and cosy. Great for quiet catch-ups with friends. They take reservations, so make sure you make use of this service especially if you intend to go down during the lunch hour on weekends. Pricing is average cafe price, about 10-15 Sg dollars for most main courses. They also serve a good range of alcoholic drinks which is great to chill-out with during the night time. Happy hour is between 4-8pm. Will definitely be back! Atmosphere is great and food is not bad too. There's also an outdoor smoking area for those who smoke although it does get quite warm/hot in the afternoons. This place is also available for booking for events.

“Great food and desserts”

Had the Japanese pasta which was delicious and well made. Followed by the famous "dirt" cake which was yummy too. Washed down w ice cold Asahi beer. Definitely worth going back.
