Strangers Reunion

There was so much hype about this place and even after so long there are still constant recommendations to Strangers Reunion. And here I am to check out what was all the hype about.

When we reach, the place was rather packed but we were lucky to get a seat very quickly. Guess we were there earlier than the lunch crowd. When we left there was a long queue outside the cafe.

Simple menu, typical breakfast, bites, desserts and coffee. There were quite a number of Caucasians around, much more than the other cafes that I have been to. So I was thinking if this place suits their taste more.


 Magic and Flat white

The flat white is pretty ok. Not the best but it is ok for me. The one that is darker in colour is Magic. It is on the menu that this is said to be a magical ratio of coffee and milk and they are the first to bring it in to Singapore. It is too bitter for me.

Price: $4.90(Flat White), $5.50 (Magic)

Eggs on Toast with Honey Baked Ham

I've chosen Focaccia for my toast and scrambled eggs.Added Honey Baked Ham to complete my breakfast. Basically I feel that the scrambled eggs are not runny enough. It can't be compare to the one from DOC. The colour is lighter and it doesn't goes well with the tomato relish.

Price: $10.50 + $4.50 (3 slices of honey baked ham)

Buttermilk Waffles with Homemade Berry Compote wit Ice Cream

I will prefer the butter taste of the waffle to be stronger and the berry compote to be sweeter. The berries are a tad too sour for my liking especially when this is served as breakfast.

Price: $14.90

This is really different from my expectation of this place. However the number of people queing outside when I left and the full house cafe tells me that people do like the food/drinks here. I suppose we just share a different taste. Not so much for me especially when the price is not exactly cheap.

The Tiramisu Hero

The first thing that you get amazed by this place is the layout and the doodling on the wall. You see white ladders sticked on the ceiling and the white walls make the place look bigger, cleaner and brighter.

Seriously, even the toilet! It makes me wanna stay in the toilet forever. It is so clean and when you look up, there are so many colourful poms poms hanging from the ceiling.

Baked Chessy Chicken

The boneless chicken leg is baked with cheese, served with mushrooms, greens and some biscuits.

Price: $17

Bangers with Mashed Potatoes

I do like the mashed potatoes as it is not too mashy and I can tasted some small chunks of potatoes. The taste of the potatoes are strong and it is thick too. The sausages are a little dry though.

Price: $15


We ordered 2 MommaHero. One is chocolate and the other is Horlicks. Both taste just as good. I have tried the Milo flavor one before and I like that even more.

Overall, I would say that I only enjoyed the Tiramisu. The food was so so. And I guess for the same price, I can get much tastier food. I would really love to see improved version of food served here as I really like the layout of the cafe.

Department of Caffeine

After reading countless of good reviews and rave about this place, we finally set our feet here. We were lucky enough to be able to get a seat for 2 in less than 5 mins. Not too long after that we saw some people waiting at the door.

It's quite a small place and they wouldn't allow you to be seated while waiting for your friends to come. We overheard the staff telling the girl seated beside us. Well I can definitely understand why the need for this guide lines. There are really too little tables around and hogging on to the table waiting for your friend to be here when you don't order anything is wasting the space seriously. The staff was friendly and was tactful with his words while explaining the rules to the lady. And luckily she was an understanding lady too.

Flat White

One of the best coffee that I have drank. A simple cup of flat white tells you all about the coffee quality they have.

Price: $5

Lavender and Honey Cake

The very first time tasting a honey cake! I love anything that is honey flavored. This is a cake that I can never have enough! I'm not so much of a lavender person though. However, the combination of honey and lavender is acceptable to me.

Price: $5

Buttermilk waffles with blueberry compote

Great waffles, strong aroma, soft on the inside, crispy on the outside. The blueberry is not too sour and it goes perfectly well with the waffle with a slight butter taste.

Price: $13.50

DOC Breakfast Platter

The fluffiness of the scrambled eggs really amazed me. It's wet, fluffy with a pinch of salt and pepper. The tomato is another surprise. The skin was removed and it's cooked but not overcooked. I love meat loaf but we seldom get to see it. The meatloaf is wrapped with bacon and served on a slice of brioche. It also comes with 2 deep fried bocconcini. Fabulous! 

Price: $18.50
