Jewel Coffee is started about 3 years ago with its first outlet at the Shenton Way. The second outlet is at Rangoon Road, with a third one coming up. The Rangoon Road outlet is 2 levels high, with both indoor and outdoor dine in area. The cafe is decorated in a very modern and minimalist look with menu boards by the walls. Today we have a early morning public cupping session at the cafe, where we learn about smelling and tasting of 3 different types of coffee. We have the session at the bar coun
After the session, we decide to stay for brunch too. By 10am, the cafe is actually packed with some tables having the reserved signs on. We end up sharing the main huge table in front of the counter with others. Egg Royale ($16++)
English muffin with smoked salmon & poached egg gratinated with Hollandaise sauce.
It is quite a great combination. The salmon is not too salty and goes well with the lightly crispy muffin. Ricotta Pancakes ($14++)
with caramelised banana, strawberry or blueberry & lemon zested mascarpone
The pancake is quite soft and fluffy. When taking order, the staff even asks if we only want selected fruits on the pancake. Quite thoughful. The Gibraltar ($5.50++)
A Gibraltar is really just a tiny latte, served in a shot glass - double espresso, milk, and a bit of foam. It tastes very thick and strong, really makes me light up. Special Breakfast Tea ($5++)
The tea on the other hand is quite bitter in taste.
Overall the food is not bad. It is interesting that such a out of the way place is so happening. It is packed for such an early hour.
