I never quite like coffee bean cakes but since this was the only coffee joint with cakes around the vicinity, I decided to try their other cakes. Cashewnut Chocolate mousse $6.50 - this wasn't sweet and the mousse was soft and smooth with a milkish kind of chocolate taste.Chocolate raspberry $6.30 - the raspberry flavour was slightly sour and sweet the the chocolate was quite sweet too but was slightly neutralized by the sourness of the raspberry.

I never quite like coffee bean cakes but since this was the only coffee joint with cakes around the vicinity, I decided to try their other cakes.

Cashewnut Chocolate mousse $6.50 - this wasn't sweet and the mousse was soft and smooth with a milkish kind of chocolate taste.

Chocolate raspberry $6.30 - the raspberry flavour was slightly sour and sweet the the chocolate was quite sweet too but was slightly neutralized by the sourness of the raspberry.

Overall, these 2 cakes are decent but there's nothing special that makes me want to buy them again.

Salmon brioche eggs Benedict set $11.90 comes with a regular cup of coffee/tea. I added $3+ to upgrade it to a hazelnut latte. As you can see from the picture, they were really stingy with the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs but I was fine with the portion of scrambled eggs as there was an egg Ben underneath it. Still, the amount of smoked salmon and its small serving portions did not justify for such a price. I would have enjoyed a better smoked salmon eggs ben at other cafes. The taste was de

The taste was decent enough thankfully.

I am slowly starting to be a fan of Coffee Bean as the food and drinks never once fail me! I tried their lunch set which includes your choice of main and a regular coffee/tea. I had the Smoked Salmon Sandwich and for the drinks I top-up a little to upgrade my regular coffee to a Chai Tea latte. I am happy that they gave quite a generous serving of smoked salmon and I love the side salad especially the dried cranberries and toasted almond flakes in it. I also like the ciabatta bread they used for

Whenever I'm at Coffee Bean studying or reading, I am always tempted by their breakfast and lunch menu. They looked and sound good Finally the chance came and I went there to have brunch with my mum.

Whenever I'm at Coffee Bean studying or reading, I am always tempted by their breakfast and lunch menu. They looked and sound good

Finally the chance came and I went there to have brunch with my mum. I wanted to try the smoked salmon bagel badly but apparently the branch at westmall didn't has this in their menu. Whereas, the branch in Holland V has it. I ordered Brek O day instead and it consisted of toasted bread, lettuce salad, sauages and scrambled eggs.

The scrambled eggs were a huge disappoint, they were literally tasteless and I had to put lots of pepper. The pepper they provided weren't even black pepper.
In addition, I felt that the scrambled eggs had a texture like pudding. This weren't the scrambled eggs I like. I prefer the scrambled eggs from mcdonald's. The rest of the components were average nothing much to give a big hoo-ha.

However, the egg club sandwich was a delicious! Do give it a try

I was craving for brownies and the first place that came to my mind was The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. Although I didn't have a very good impression of the cakes and drinks in coffee bean but I thought I should give it a try in case the cake will blow my mind away. I will never know unless I try. I went to coffee bean after school to grab my brownie and of course do some work.

I went to coffee bean after school to grab my brownie and of course do some work. With the exams around the corner, coffee bean was slightly crowded with JC students and was a little noisy, something I didn't expect until I saw the crowd


Honestly, the cakes in the cake bar all looked very deliciously and tempting. I was a little shaken and contemplated if I should try other cakes. But I stuck to my plan and decided to satisfy my craving and ordered Boston Nut Brownie at $5.50

The first mouthful of the Brownie was awesome because of the layer of chocolate ganache atop the brownie. However, as I continued, the level of disappointment began to increase. My ideal brownie should be dense and has a thick cocoa flavour. But the brownie from coffee bean was like a normal chocolate cake with a layer of ganache. I began to suspect I was eating a chocolate cake instead of brownie.
DISAPPOINTMENT


Lesson learnt: Looks can be deceiving

People always go Coffee Bean for their coffee, but do not neglect their cakes as it is worth a try too. Firstly about their coffee, despite what the shop is named, the standard of the coffee is not up to standard. I ordered a cafe mocha, which is meant to be like latte, thus, it should have a slight layer of milk foam. But the one i had, for some reason, the foam had sink to the middle. Which is quite disappointing. And the cheesecake is much better. Even though the slice is not huge, it is suff

People always go Coffee Bean for their coffee, but do not neglect their cakes as it is worth a try too.

Firstly about their coffee, despite what the shop is named, the standard of the coffee is not up to standard. I ordered a cafe mocha, which is meant to be like latte, thus, it should have a slight layer of milk foam. But the one i had, for some reason, the foam had sink to the middle. Which is quite disappointing.

And the cheesecake is much better. Even though the slice is not huge, it is sufficient to be shared among 2 people because of the nature of the cheese. It is just too sickening to be eaten by your own, but the first few mouthfuls are still heavenly.

It is a nice time to hang out there with friends, especially since at this point of the year there isnt any students who are studying in the area.
