This is a definitely a kids friendly place with kids menu with big bouncy castles and football at the compound. A nice place to hangout with family and friends with kids. But I find their food is an average and not really value for money. They don't take any booking.

Very popular place in the East, come early on weekend if you do not want to queue since they don't take any reservation. Food was basic brunch, portion is quite big (of course they're Australian!). The IPAD thing is very annoying, understood that it is necessary for more efficient service considering the labour issue in SG esp F&B industry, but... More

So they advertise a $32 ++ for 2 x 12 inch pizzas only on Tuesday on their IPAD (no waiter service for ordering, which I think for a good restaurant hoping to achieve good customer service is unacceptable, but that's an aside). Normally I would not eat a 12" pizza as I am quite a small person but I thought... More

Singapore has its share of all-day breakfast craze and Café Melba is a beloved entry into that category. Classic Eggs Benedict to thin-crusted pizzas, I guess there must be many more breakfast to be had to try everything.

Located in a quiet neighborhood in the East. It's a nice place to relax with indoor and outdoor seating. Food quality is average for the price and usually a long wait as kitchen is extremely busy. The staff will warn customers of the long wait so this is appreciated. Recommend for drinks and dessert. It gets crowded on weekends.

A sign at the entrance clearly states that the dishes take 45 min to come... But : - We arrived at 11h45 and were fully served at 13h20. - We had kids and a baby. The kids' meal arrived at 13h00 and the baby only had his porridge at 13h20 (you would wonder why a porridge takes so long). -... More

We came in a big group of 13 pax in a rainy public holiday afternoon. The cafe was not crowded and we got enough attention from the staff. Ordering process through ipads placed on the table was explained clearly. Our food came quickly. Free-flow of ice water was served. Truffle fries, pizza and pasta were all good. They currently have... More

Great for the less fussy. We enjoyed the service, food and time there. A good variety if you love western food. No local food or fusion. Easy ordering from the tablets, not so for the elderly as my father in law went alone and had ordered 2 coffees when he needed one. Glad that the staff double checked on his... More

Been here a few times as it is local to us. Food is ok, they have a good kids selection. Pizzas are good. Service is a lot better since they installed ipad menus.

On wednesday approximately 1.45 pm. I visited the restaurant. The irony of the sign at the door which states "please wait to be seated" i waited 15 minutes with no one approaching. I decide to just go in and sit.. took a table and sit. 10 minutes with completely no approach from any staff. So i stood up and decided... More
