Drop by to try their Everything on a Waffle ($15), a hearty and filling dish that comprises fluffy scrambled eggs and chicken sausages atop fragrant pandan waffles. Diners also have the option to have their eggs served sunny-side up instead of scrambled.

A Moveable Feast ($14) is another popular pick. It is essentially a brioche toastie with either teriyaki chicken or smoked salmon. The former will set you back $14, and the latter $15. It is further enhanced with cheese, tomatoes, and greens. You’ll also get a side of potato chips to accompany your sandwich.
Alternatively, extra ingredients such as sauteed mushrooms ($4), chicken sausage ($5), and scrambled eggs ($3.50) can be added to the sandwich.

Those with a sweet tooth can get their cravings sorted with The Sweetness at the Bottom ($15), a classic combination of pandan waffles, berries, and ice cream. Ice cream flavours include Espresso, Dark Chocolate, and Watermelon Sorbet. If one scoop of ice cream isn’t enough, a double scoop will set you back $4 extra!

To wash it all down, go for their selection of espresso-based drinks, with notable mentions including the Flat White ($6.20), Espresso Matcha Fusion ($7), and Dirty Chai Latte ($6.80). The staple espresso blend that they use is also said to boast undertones of dark chocolate, hazelnuts, and molasses! For something non-caffeinated, go for their Hojicha Latte ($6) or Ruby Breakfast Tea ($5).
