I'm a big fans of vintage. I fell in love with this place, The Coastal Settlement (TCS). I went there during a weekend, and it was indeed the perfect kind of place to go to chit chat with friends. These place is like a place to take a break from hectic metropolitan lifestyle. Surrounded by vintage furniture and nostalgic architecture, The restaurant offers local and western cuisine. We went there for brunch.

The brunch menu is available on weekends and public holidays from 11am to 4pm.
Eggs benedict ($17) Eggs Benedict, which may be my favorite brunch dish, comes with two poached eggs, ham and spinach on top of English muffins, drizzled generously with Hollandaise sauce.

cheese burger ($26) 180g wagyu beef patty, it was pretty tender, topped with melted smoked cheddar cheese, sliced mushrooms, bacon strips, mesclun salad & fries. The buns were toasted lightly and crispy on the outside, soft on the inside.

As for our dessert, the sea salt caramel cheesecake (oven baked cheesecake, sea salt caramel sauce $12) was pretty. However the sea salt cheesecake was far too salty for my preference.

Was wowed by a friend's description of the cafe and decided to check it out for dinner. Lovely ambience with fixtures and decor that's totally towards my liking for all things quaint and old-school. However, the food was definitely not up to expectation for its prices. We had the 2 dfferent types of soup, codfish fish and chips, fried chicken, sausage rosti and waygu burger.

Was wowed by a friend's description of the cafe and decided to check it out for dinner. Lovely ambience with fixtures and decor that's totally towards my liking for all things quaint and old-school. However, the food was definitely not up to expectation for its prices. We had the 2 dfferent types of soup, codfish fish and chips, fried chicken, sausage rosti and waygu burger. The codfish was totally off the mark. Because of the fact that it was codfish, we went for it despite the slightly steep price for a fish and chip dish, expecting it to be better than the typical one. It was tasteless! We could not even finish it despite us being people who do not adovcate food wastage. It was so bad we had to ask the waiter if they were sure it was codfish and he fumbled for awhile before replying us that it was codfish from some atlantic ocean -_- The fried chicken failed to deliver as a main dish as it was dry and not flavourful beyond its skin. The only dish that was satisfactory on a nomal expectation is the sausage rosti. We do not mind steep prices for good food but this was just very, very disappointing. Hope that the restaurant could review its food quality so as not to let its commendable efforts on the decor/restaurant setup go to waste, it is afterall a very lovely place to chill out at.

If you intend to check it the ambience here, would recommend brunch so you have a lower priced menu at risk, and there'll be a nice amt of daylight for some nice photo-taking.

The desserts here always able to impress me with their really nice presentation and the generous amount of sweet items topped on it. The pancake has been baked till really nice golden brown colour, and the texture is smooth, light and filled with the fragrant from the butter used in it and with slight crunchiness on the outer surface too. The ice cream is also smooth and really creamy. The combination is definitely great and I would be back for more to try their other desserts as well.

Wah this place is simply.. paradise! Lol. Ok forgive the exaggeration but its been a loooooooooooooong time since im so satisfied and impressed with a place- great environment, superb food with no frustrating proportions, great great service, pretty interior designplus no pressure to rush... everything is just great for hanging out..but then again i didnt visit it on a weekend so that could be the place.. but other than that the place is really 2 thumbs up for me!

Ok firstly, I had bookmarked their website on my browser and we had been wanting to go but coz we dun drive n its at the faaaaaaar end of east we had the inertia... but becoz we had a 4 day weekend I finally suggesed we cycle there from east coast.. which is a good idea actually (if its not raining).

So we took abr 1.5 hours to cycle from east coast and the place is really just a bit further down from the village hotel so its not so difficult to find. We had skipped breakfast to eat here.. =P so i must first say we had ordered quite alot for 2 persons.. I had done my research n know that their portobello fries and truffle fries were must-try so i had chosen the lesser of the 2 evil. hehe. Wah its superbly good !! the portobello was so juicy and full of its natural goodness that u really dun need the truffled mayo but its special too.. portions are not big though.. just nice for 2 to share.. please order this if u go!!

The second side we had was the wings.. which was so-so.. so i wun really recommend it for the price.. and had 3 parts of drumlets n wings each.. The mains are the best... I had read before that their waygu burger was good so i told the angmo kia to take it but he was afraid its too much so he took the reuben sandiwich instead.. which was still wonderful! they are not stingy on the pastrami at all, and it had a small fresh rocket salad on the side.. mine was super wonderful.. with melting cheese, juicy roma toamatoes and ham.. was the cheese was really melting.. and wats more, i think actually 1 portion is good enough for 2 person to share.. i had doggy-bagged my last piece of sandwish.. the size was abt the length of a full baguette cut into 3 parts.. so imagine.. Mine came with the potatoe salad which i didnt touch (too much carbs but angmo kia ate half the portion).

The other thing that was a bit disappointing for me other than the wongs was the mocha. Being a huge coffee fan, I must say the coffee was abit too acidic for my liking and even the chocolate syrup wasnt able to mask it..

A word abt the great service- the restaurants has a few areas: restaurant, cafe, outdoors.. we sat at the cafe area first.. and after my bf had wanted to smoke n take a coffee outside so we requested to move and the guy who served us (I think fillipino, but no nametag or i wld write in to the boss for bouquets =)) did it so happily and helped us to move, even bringing us new glasses or water...arh.... good service.. i miss it in singapore.. I can tell u even some hotels dun do this.. so kudos!

The setting of the place is really really pretty with all sorts of vintage stuff... If i drove n stayed in the east this will definitely be my hangout!

We spent abt $90 in total- mocha,pineapple juice, double espresso, portobello fries, wings, 2 sandwiches. But remember, the huge portions for the mains. =)
