- The Shop
An old school confectionery sits in a nondescript shophouse along East Coast Road is specialised in authentic bakery and breakfast.

The coffee shop's old white ceiling fans, round marble-top tables, antique wooden chairs, mosaic tiles and the traditional porcelain cups offers a sense of nostalgia to the younger.


They still heat the coffee over charcoal fire and do the bakery at the back of the stall. How authentic can it get?

- The Food
Half Boiled Egg @ $0.80
What is a traditional breakfast in Singapore without half boiled egg? Everyone has their personal preference how precise they like their eggs cooked. And I would say I loves it as long as the egg yolks are still wobbling like this! (ˆڡˆ)

Kaya Butter Toast Bun @ $1.00
Thick slabs of toast bun that are slathered with kaya and a side with slathering kaya and a slice of butter. The toasted bun was a tad dense, the homemade kaya was quite sweet, but I am sure the lingering fragrance of kaya will make you yearn for more.

Cream Horns @ $1.20
The flaky puff filled with generous creamy filling was too sweet for my liking.

Egg Tart @ $0.90
The shortcrust pastry was crumbly and moist with nice buttery taste. The custard filling was not the wobbling type but still maintain the smoothness and not overly sweet. I like the crunchy crust with the melt-in-the-mouth filling.

Custard Puff @ $0.90
I absolutely love the luscious custard puff (ˆڡˆ)! The bun was light and airy, the savoury custard cream sweetness was just right.

Not sure what happen to the raven robust coffee ($1.00), what Ellena had was a rather weak and bland coffee. Hazel's milo ($1.20) and my tea ($1.00) was diluted.

Overall I still have an enjoyment brekkie with my foodie friends.

- My Opinion
Derrick brought me there for a quick bite couple of months ago before our tasting at 112 Katong Food Republic. It was super crowded at 9ish in the morning, and we only had the kaya toast for breakfast since we had a tasting about an hour later.

I wanted to go back to try their pastries but my lazy husband refuse to wake up early on Sunday morning and takes a 15mins bus ride down. Finally I get a chance to revisit the place with Hazel - Aimakan and Ellena - Cuisine Paradise.

The lingering fragrance of freshly made toast and aromatic coffee will definitely kick-start your morning. Be there early especially on a weekend if you are heading down for breakfast, their pastries wipe out very fast.


  1. WAH I'm not a pastry person but I love cream horns!!!

  2. Lobster,

    You can try their kaya toast bun and soft boiled egg.

    They have some other buns available too.

  3. so many reviews on this place! but its so far fro my home =(

  4. OK! Will try those when I get the chance to go there soon! :)

  5.  Lob, pull Alvin and go together. Their cream horns not bad leh! Love the crispy crust! Kaya MUST TRY!

  6. Hi FoodieFC,

    Find a Saturday morning to travel down for brunch! They are open till 4pm from Tue-Sun. Avoid going too late on Sunday, because they don't want to have wastage as they are closed on Monday, so usually they won't prepare a lot.

  7. We can arrange a breakfast/brunch gathering! Pull Ellena along, lolz

  8. Agree with Ellena! But I am not a cream person, I prefer the custard bun, yum~

  9. Wahaha okok let's see if we can go together one day! :D
