A small cozy cafe. Located near City Hall MRT (About 8-10 minutes walk). They do not take reservations. So do go early if you don't want to wait too long. The pancakes were fluffy and delicious. The portions are also generous. We have tried the following:- WildBerry Shake (S$10)- Pancakes with Warm Maple Butter (S$18)- Egg Benedict (S$18) - Substituted with smoked-salmon (+S$5)Read my full review with more pictureshttp://www.eatdreamlove.com/clinton-street-baking-company/

Purvis Street is full of good restaurants and Clinton Street Baking Company is no exception. We just walked by and saw this new and bright restaurant and so we went into it.

The place is nicely decorated and you felt that you're in a tidy western cafe in Tokyo, that is, bright and tidy with light colour as its theme, and attention to details.

We tried Fried Chicken Plate and Veggie burger.

Fried Chicken Plate you felt that you are having a luxury and properly cooked version of KFC. The skin is crispy and not oily, and the chicken is quite tender. Maybe the only thing to criticized is that it's not warm enough. We matched it with salad and it's like coleslaw with some good mix of herbs which are great match with the chicken.

The veggie burger is just great. The veggie patty is filled with herbs are the taste just stayed in your mouth. The juicy tomato and the slightly crispy surface of the patty is a perfect match, together with the leafy salad.

Highly recommended. Price is quite reasonably with this quality of food.

Without alcohol ($10++ right)
Pretty strong in the alcohol. The drink tasted very rich and creamy, but could not taste the salted caramel in it.

Chicken & Waffles ($21++)
with honey-Tabasco sauce, a crispy Belgian vanilla buttermilk waffle, and signature warm maple butter.
The chicken was served char burnt, which made one quite disappointed. Some parts of the batter was just too hard and bitter to be eaten. One had to remove the batter coating in order to eat. Although the staff saw that we had left much of the batter untouch when clearing the plates, no one asked us about the food. The waffle was not the usual crispy and fluffy type. Instead it was eggy and soft. More like kueh kueh type. Not bad with the maple butter sauce. But not really my type.

Pancakes with Warm Maple Butter ($18++)
Served with wild blueberries.
The first which I notice when the dish was served, was that the pancakes were super thick in size. The pancake was fluffy and soft, with a kind of eggy taste. Some may felt that the blueberries was a bit too sour. Nice but could not take in more a piece of pancake. It was way too much for me.

Overall felt that the food was overrated. Maybe I was expecting too much but it just did not blow me off. Although the place looked sparkling clean, I was surprised to see a certain small animal running through the dining area. No wonder the place had placed a notice that it would be closed early for maintenance on the coming Monday. I soon lost my appetite after that and trying to vomit everything out.

Went on weekday afternoon and is already crowded with people on waiting list by 12pm. Ordered the signature pancake with warm maple butter to share. The pancake is the most fluffiest pancake i ever ate! Damm awesome when dip with the maple butter, the taste is different and distinctively unique from the usual maple syrup. Ordered a shake, that consist of a scoop of ice cream topped with whipped cream. Probably will give this a pass on the next visit.

The all-famous Clinton Street Baking Company has arrived on our sunny shores! Originating from New York, this place is well-known for their fluffy pancakes, with many crowning it the best in New York City!

We knew there'd be a queue during lunch time (even on a weekday) so we arrived around 2pm. Luckily for us, we didn't have to wait for seats at all! The restaurant is a bit narrow but long, with a semi-open kitchen at the back. The design is simple, using the wood furniture to create a no-frills yet homely vibe. They serve all-day breakfast, including their specialty Buttermilk Biscuit Sandwich and of course, their pancakes! They're also known for their buttermilk fried chicken, which is served from 11.30am.

Crispy Potato Pancakes ($19++): There are two choices for this, either with caramelised applesauce and sour cream ($14++) or with house-smoked salmon, caviar and lemon creme fraiche ($19++). My friend picked the latter. On first sight, we were a bit shocked because the potato pancakes look so charred! Nevertheless, my friend proceeded to eat it. The salmon was a bit too salty, but it was a reasonable portion served. The potato pancakes is essentially rosti, but yes it was kinda oily and too charred. We should have requested for a new plate on hindsight...

Pancakes with Warm Maple Butter ($18++): The star dish of this place! There are three options for your pancakes - wild blueberries, banana walnut or chocolate chunk. The choice was obvious for me because I love berries! The aroma of pancakes was so strong I was so excited to dig in! (But of course, my camera eats before I do...)

Mmm, what a delicious stack of pancakes! As you can see in the photos, they are very thick and fluffy, and actually rather huge too! Finishing three was quite a challenge for me, as I was rather full after my second one haha. The pancakes were sufficiently moist and very flavourful! The wild blueberries weren't on the sweet side but I like that. I would have preferred if more blueberries were stuffed in the batter though.

I didn't drizzle the warm maple butter all over my pancakes like how you see photos/videos on social media, lol, because I don't like maple syrup. But, I know that it is very highly raved about, so I dipped my pancakes in a little bit of it. Haha. Hmm, to me it tasted like maple syrup with more butter? Hahaha y'don't say? It was very rich but unique I guess. Overall, this pancakes definitely wins my stamp of approval, and possibly lives up to the hype!

Although prices are quite steep here, I think the portions given justifies what you're paying. As an American diner, naturally their food is like the usual American serving - HUGE. So either you go with a big appetite or you share the food with friends hahaha. I would probably return to have their pancakes again!

Accessibility:

Approx 5-7mins walk from Bugis MRT Station

Crowded scene taken about 10.30am on a Saturday morning. Seats are limited and the eatery is small and noisy. Despite that, queues are still blocking the entrance of the eatery, in wait for empty seats. Thank goodness we went there about 8 am, as soon as it opened, hence we did not have to wait at all.

We ordered the pancakes which we've heard so much about. We chose the wild blueberries as our toppings. The blueberries somehow didn't come through very well for me (flavour-wise, and I wonder why), but thank goodness the warm maple butter did.

It was smooth and was not overly sweet. It also provided a delightful flavour when added to the pancakes, which were light and fluffy. Other toppings for the pancakes include: Banana Walnut or Chocolate Chunk.

Clinton St. Omelette ($18)

Here, you can choose what you want to add within the omelette. You are given up to 2 fillings. We chose mushrooms and cheese, but the cheese flavour failed to show up but the mushrooms still tasted good with the omelette.

Well, omelettes and mushrooms, what could go wrong? But for its price, I still wished that they'd added just enough cheese to deliver the oomph it should have. The hash browns on the side tasted lovely, while I probably wouldn't have noticed even if the toasted sourdough toast had disappeared.

And in case you were wondering... no, they do not take reservations. Just like how they roll in New York. First-come-first-serve, people, first-come-first-serve.

Do also take note that only brunch items are available if you go there anytime before 11.30am. The full menu will only be available from 11.30am onwards.

The best bit: The fluffy pancakes!

The worse bit: The crowded space which literally cramps one's style.

Occupying a small shophouse unit along Purvis Street and playing neighbours to a boutique hotel and a coffeeshop, Clinton Street Baking Co Singapore can seat ~ 60 people, albeit in a rather cramp seating arrangement (the NY outlet can only take 32 pax). The interior isn't much to shout about honestly, coming across as modern at best. No reservations are accepted but when we got there at about 10am on a Saturday morning, the wait was a very manageable 15 minutes.

Crispy Potato Pancakes - We opted for the house smoked salmon option, which came with caviar and lightly tart and refreshing lemon crème fraîche on the side. Taste wise, the potato pancakes had been on the grill for way too long; charred to a slightly uncomfortable degree of bitterness but otherwise bland. The thin slices of salmon were pretty good though; lightly smokey without coming across as too fishy. We gave up on the potato pancakes halfway through.

Pancakes with Warm Maple Butter - There is a choice of wild blueberries, banana walnut or chocolate chunk for your pancakes and we went with the banana walnut since we tried the blueberry variant in New York. Bits of banana and walnut wedged between fluffy pancakes and finished with more walnuts and banana atop. Very good. However, instead of being dusted with icing sugar, granulated sugar was used instead, which gave the whole dish a rather unpolished feel in my humble opinion. The coarseness of the sugar really didn't help with the texture either. But......... the pièce de résistance was definitely the warm maple butter (not so warm actually); smooth with the creamy saltiness of butter and the pleasant sweetness of maple syrup.

So how does it compare to the original? In my humble opinion, very close. The pancakes could do with a little more crustiness on the surface. Still #2 on my pancake list after Pancakes On The Rocks (http://www.timelessfacade.com/2012/12/pancakes-on-rocks-sydney.html) in Sydney.

Sugar Cured Bacon - I enjoyed this sinful side of sugar cured bacon but it did seem a little drier as compared to the one in NY. Delectable nonetheless; lightly sweet while retaining the mild saltiness of the bacon. I would envision bacon bak kwa to be of a similar taste and texture?

Prices at the Singapore branch are similar to those in NY (after factoring in forex) and both of us spent close to $52 for brunch, which is still reasonable in my humble opinion. I'll definitely be back for the pancakes and bacon, nothing else! Oh wait, maybe to try out the signature waffle with chicken (only available for lunch) as well.

We arrived around 8.10am on 24 September which is Selamat Hari Raya Haji (Public Holiday) and surprisingly, families and friends started to flood into the restaurant for breakfast.The streets are so quiet early morning of public holiday but the restaurant was filled with the crowd. We managed to get the seats before the crowd came.

Since it’s early morning, the Chicken & Waffles are not available. So, if you are craving for this, come after 11:30 am onwards. Since most of the social media has been reviewing about Buttermilk Biscuit Sandwich, we thought of trying other dish from the menu instead. So, we ordered Clinton St. Omelette S$18.00 with the choice of two filling. The staff recommended us to have cheese and mushrooms omelette served with hash browns and sourdough toast. There is also option to substitute egg whites or greens for S$3.00 and additional fillings S$2.00 each. But, I think the portion is just nice for 1 pax and do not need to add on anymore. I can’t even finish it all by myself so sharing is possible for small eaters. The combination of mushroom and cheese with the eggs was pretty decent. The cheese taste was not overwhelming and I can taste the mushroom juiciness within the omelette. Although the presentation is not photogenic compared to the Buttermilk Biscuit Sandwich, but I think the overall taste was good and filling at a reasonable pricing.

Next, we had the famous Pancakes with Warm Maple Butter S$18.00. There are three options available – wild blueberries, banana walnut or chocolate chunk. We decided to go with wild blueberries. Thick stacks of pancakes with wild blueberries as the topping was served on the table.I enjoyed the pancakes texture as it was fluffy with the blueberries sweetness in it.Not forgetting the warm maple butter drizzled over the pancakes makes a sweet ending to the meal.

Lastly, we ordered Sugar Cured Bacon S$7.00 as ala-carte. It was a good choice as we are in love with the crispy and sweet coated layer of the bacon. It reminds me when I first tried at Morganfield’s but this is absolutely delish. It’s like a snack or appertizer for your meal to kick off.

As for our drinks, I had Grapefruit juice S$7.00 and Janel got Latte S$6.00. Pure grapefruit juice taste with nice fragrance of latte smell to perks the morning wake.
I have not been to New York to try the Clinton Street Baking Company so thankful for their first branch here in Singapore. I foresee myself returning to try other foods in the menu other day. Thus, hopefully the foods quality and consistency will maintain during my next visit. If you are planning give a try, do anticipate the waiting time. We were there early morning and they seem like short of manpower and customers will need to wait for a while before they can get seated. Thus, bear with the operation flows and enjoy the meal. The staffs do greet the customers with a smile even before and after the meal. This marks a sweet dining experience with Clinton Street Baking Company at Purvis Street.
Total Bill S$65.91 inclusive of 10% service charge and 7% GST.
