Since it was a special, we went straight ahead with the French Toast ($10.00). Served with blueberry jam, candied walnuts and fresh cream, it sounded rather usual but we were very impressed with the toast itself. They were soft and custardy on the inside as the brioche was soaked in custard, along with the walnuts which were crunchy and full of nutty goodness. It was so good that we thought the dish could actually make do without the jam and cream as it stole much of the limelight from the toast itself.

I chose the Salted Caramel Danish ($4.50). According to them, their pastries come from artisan bakery B.A.O. The pastries are warmed upon order. While it was great buttery goodness, the Danish felt rather limp and had crispiness lost, which made it pretty hard to cut through with a fork. At a point of time I simply had to use my hands or just stab the pastry with a fork just to eat it. Not everything was bad though; there was a nice layer of salted caramel in between which made it seem pretty flavourful. The walnuts sprinkled over the top also gave it a nice nutty crunch.

Ordered my usual Flat White ($4.50), which seemed a tad milky to me. The blends used at One Man Coffee are from Stranger’s Reunion according to one of the staff there

A clever way to maximize operations for a place previously only for dinner, One Man Coffee does offer a nice environment for an afternoon chill out. They have also started out their all-day breakfast menu on the week after our visit, which gives a wider variety for brunch-goers.
