When mention about the word 'Cafe', the first thing that came to mind is crowded, packed, long waiting hours, noisy. But among all this cafe craze, I am thankful to find a cafe that is located away from the busy city in the smaller suburb where i can truly get to enjoy the cafe experience.

How does a cafe in the industrial estate sound to you? Some would react with wide unconvincing eyes or worries about the ease of getting there. But well, this cafe is totally different. Accessible by bus, complimentary parking for drivers, tall ceiling, spacious and most importantly, you get to enjoy your meal with peace.

Opened in mid 2013, the cafe undergo a revamp in early 2014 to give customers a more comfortable dining experience.

158 Kallang Way, Performace Building, #01-06, Singapore 349245

Before renovation in Nov 2013
Mocha $4.40 (add $1 for iced) 
 Eggs Benedict $13
Two poached eggs on toasted brioche, served with bacon and honey baked ham with homemade hollandaise sauce
(The look might not be attractive but the taste do prove its worth. Love the sauce, a little different from the usual Hollandaise sauce)

After renovation in March 2014
 Flat White $4.50 (add $1 for iced)
Cafe Mocha $6 (add $2 for iced)
 Smoked Salmon Benedict $15
Two poached egg on toasted rustic white bread, served with smoked salmon and hollandaise sauce

After writing your order on the order sheet, bring the order sheet to the counter to make your payment. Let the cashier know if you are driving and they will issue you a complimentary parking ticket.
Within half a year, I visited the cafe thrice!! Definitely a good place to do your work and have a comfy proper meal.

Finally a lazy Sunday for me to rest and what can make it better than having a meal with my longest girlfriends since primary school days. Went for brunch followed by a dessert session. Well, we are girls and girls always have an extra space for desserts.

Operating hours: Mon to Fri - 11am to 10pm, Sat & Sun - 8.30am to 10pm (close on Tues)
Mocha $5.50
Cappucino $5
Truffled Chippies $9
Truffle fries with garlic mayo sauce
(Love the garlic mayo sauce, goes very well with the truffle fries)
 Carvers Breakfast $18
Scrambled eggs on toast, gammon ham, bacon, sauteed mushrooms
(Totally love the gammon ham, taste a little like pork chop and adding a little saltiness to the overall taste)
 Truffled Eggs Toast $15
Bacon jam, cheddar, sous vide eggs, bacon chips, truffle oil
(Love how well the watery flowy eggyork is done)
After our brunch, we walked along the stretch of East Coast Road and chance upon a small little cafe that sells pastries and drinks. What attracted us most among all the other cafes along the road is their paddlepop cake that was displayed on their glass window. And so, we decided to give it a try.

37 East Coast Road, Singapore 428755
Operating hours: Mon to Fri - 12pm to 9pm, Sat & Sun - 9am to 9pm (close on Wed)

The name of the cafe 'Holqa' actually mean 'link' in Maltese language
 Paddlepop Frenzy $5.90
A pair of PaddlePop crunches, served with mini marshmallows and chocolate sauce goodness
(Definitely a mood lifter when u see it but personally, I feel the base of the cake can be a little more hard & chilled)
 Cheesy Earl Grey $8.90
Classic Earl Grey cheesecake, served with chocolate & topped with crushed peanuts
(An interesting combination, strong earl grey fragrance at first mouth but gets a little 'gelat' gradually)

So much love for these 2 ladies I call my sisters for 19 years. That's about 2/3 of my life!! The ones who seen me through my growing up process since primary school & the ones who are there for me through my ups and downs. Definitely looking forward to many more years of friendship ahead of us. <3
