Nestled in a quaint neighbourhood shop house at Block 77 Circuit Road, this is where time stands still to savour a good cuppa kopi and kaya toast. continue reading

With so many new openings in the cafe scenes lately, it is really interesting to see new entrants such as LJJ Cafe stepping into the competition with a old-school concept while trying to serve a hipster crowd. Probably it’s location spurred such a move, since Circuit Road is an aging estate with an elderly population which makes it necessary to attract the crowd. Menu items revolved around old-school favourites; Kaya Toast, Soup Noodles, Mee Siam and even Ice-Cream in Bread are some of the items that would transport one back to the old days. And while cafés serve Flat White and Long Black these days, expect your familiar cup of Kopi O here.One of the more modern items on the breakfast menu would be the Scrambled Eggs set ($4.80 with Kopi/Teh), where there is a choice of either sausages or ham served alongside Butter Toast with scrambled eggs. The scrambled eggs are runny enough, but could do with a bit of seasoning, while the sausages are tender but a wee bit too salty. We appreciated that the bread used for the toast were actual slices of bread, not the biscuit-like ones we usually get from commercial joints now, which is why its still soft and pillowy despite crusted on the surface. A breakfast that could be replicated at home, but it’s pretty comforting somehow.Cream Cake Set ($3.20 with Kopi/Teh) comes with a choice of two cream cakes and a drink; a decent option when it comes to a tea time treat. The Cream Cakes are somewhat small in size; about half of what you usually would get in neighbourhood bakeries. Both flavours suffered the same issues; tasted a tad artificial, usage of fresh cream instead of buttercream hence lacking on nostalgic flavour and felt quite dry especially at the edges.Coffee is acceptable; both the Kopi and Kopi O were thick enough with adequate sweetness.For more photos and the full review, please visit: http://jiaksimipng.wordpress.com/2014/12/15/ljj-cafe-%E6%A2%81%E4%BD%B3%E5%90%89-blk-77-circuit-road/ continue reading
