Bagel & Smoked salmon - Bagel is toasted before served, i like it hot!! Eat with cream cheese is simply marvelous. Smoked salmon is fresh, but i feel that the length of smoked salmon is not enough, i am unable to taste it. Mesclun salad is refreshing and crunchy. Overall, this dish didn't really impress me, average score only.
Chicken Salad - Serve with chicken breast in bread, chicken is flavoured and tasty, meat is cooked just nice and is juicy. Mesclun salad is served as well. Quite good, recommended to try.
Rose-bud Tea - You are able to smell the rose fragrant right away once you pour out the tea from the pot. Pity is that they are using tea bag, not fresh tea leaves. Hence, not very impressive to me.
Mocha - Taste yummy, good balance of chocolate and coffee
Banana Cake - Warm mini-loaf of banana cake served with caramel, sliced banana, biscuit crumble and peanut butter sauce on top. Cake is moist and soft, very addictive. Such small portion is really not enough to satisfy one's craving. Highly recommended to try this dish!!!!

Verdict: 4 / 5
The food are cooked to order, but the waiting time is not very long. Only 1-2 staffs are attending the customers, hence do not expect attention if there are a lot of customers. Only the cakes and drinks will attract me to come back again, other than that, food are just normal, nothing impressive. But still, the place is great to hang out with friends.
Come early before 12pm if you want to try their brunch special, i miss it because they ran out of toast!!!
