Woohoo, exam weeks have ended! To entertain myself after struggling with 4 business-related subjects (what a great excuse!), I went for a Wednesday brunch. Chose November 8 since it's located quite close to campus, within a short bus ride away.November 8 is hidden inside Thomson V Two building.

November 8 is hidden inside Thomson V Two building. There's no visible entrance from outside, the entrance can be located from L1 arcade. I noticed recently they has changed their off-day from Wednesdays to Tuesdays (lucky me, I've never browsed about their operation hours before). The atmosphere was laid-back, to my surprise the space was quite ample, compared to usual cafes that are crampy. I like the decor, it looks artsy with rattan rocking horse, colorful fixie bike, a guitar hanging on a shelf, and coffee bean sacks.
Cranberry Juice - $4
It's just Snapple poured in a glass, note it down! I guess you can't expect freshly squeezed juice for such price, is it? Bf ordered 2 glasses coz he had finished the first one even before the food came. Cappuccino - $4.50
They use Dutch Colony coffee beans for their coffee. My cappuccino came with a decent latte art. A bit too acidic for me, it became more robust as it got colder. Waffle Breakfast - $15.50
signature waffles with gourmet pork sausage, bacon and scrambled eggs, served with maple syrup
A lot reviews say that waffle is November 8's strength, but somehow I couldn't prove it. The waffle was tough, hard to cut, served cold and lacked of fragrant scent. Nevertheless, I love their scrambled eggs, the texture was creamy and a bit runny, but it would be better if it's not that bland. The crispy bacon was another plus point. The pork sausage was big-sized and flavorful, except that it's a tad too dense for my liking. Potato Rosti - $16.50
pan-seared freshly shredded potato, served with scrambled eggs, gourmet pork sausage and bacon
Bf said the rosti tasted rather weird, but for me nothing wrong with it, Slightly oily but it had a nice texture and seasoning. Excuse that Nokia phone haha Overall, our brunch was quite enjoyable, but unfortunately I had to left 2 pieces of my waffle unfinished, since I was too full and the waffle wasn't really toothsome. If it was, I probably would fight to finish it no matter how full I was! Another rant, we had to wait so long for our food! I reckon it's above 25 minutes. Even though breakfast menus usually have a lot of elements, I still don't think they will require that long to serve. Is this cafe worth another visit? Yea, probably.
