We had:
Truffle Fries - $12

I wasn't very impressed with their truffle fries. The truffle scent was not thoroughly infused and the portion of fries were meagre, considering that we paid $12 for this. I would have gladly spent this amount of money on something else.

The Pegasus Breakfast - $28
(A hearty breakfast encompassing a baked egg pot pie, streaky bacon, twirly chicken sausage, cheesy scrambled eggs, smoked salmon and smoked duck breast served with toast and a side of fresh greens)

$28 for an all day breakfast dish might sound insane, but looking at the variety of ingredients present, I must say that the amount was well-spent. Still, it was a pity that there were certain hits and misses on this platter.

  Personally, I felt that the baked pot pie was a huge miss. The minced beef chunks let off a certain stench which was an absolute turn-off for me. The eggs, on the other hand, were creamy and cheesy. Another hit was the generous serving of smoked salmon and smoked duck breasts which I absolutely loved. This dish would be perfect for sharing between 2 pax.

3 Little Ducks - $26
(A combination of duck rillettes, smoked duck breasts and cheesy scrambled eggs atop our homemade bread brightened with orange segments and orange marmalade and a side of fresh greens)

The dish certainly lived up to it's name. It was quite an adventurous combination though not everyone would enjoy this unless you're a fan of all things duck. I personally loved the foie gras and smoked duck breasts which were tender and done to perfection. Not exactly a fan of duck liver. 

The service staff were friendly and prompt in their service. Our food was served quickly and it's presentation was satisfactory.

The cafe let off a run-down vibe with old shelves and a little bakery admist the seating area. I would love to spend an afternoon here all by myself. The interior is really spacious so it'll also be a great place for group gatherings.


Met up with my dearest sotongz for some cafe-hopping adventure since it happened to be his off-day and I was enjoying my last bit of the "holidays". Sg has been unbelievably scorching these days to the point it can get really unbearable walking outdoors. I guess there're just some things that we can never get used to.
