For full review - http://midas400.blogspot.sg/2014/06/hatter-street-cafe-waffles-four-seasons.html
I had an impromptu coffee session with one of my sista who stays just across the street from Hatter Street cafe. We were there at around 5pm on a Friday evening and the cafe is about 70% full.

 

 
The tiny cafe has a whimsical decor theme which sets it apart from the usual industrial themed decor of similar indie cafes. The cafe's name Hatter is derived from The Hatter, a character from the story Alice in Wonderland, who loves having tea parties in the magical wonderland. The menu is written on the whimsical wall murals, no physical menu will be presented at the table.

 

 

 
This cafe is self service style, just walk in, pick a seat and place order at the cashier counter. We ordered 2 of their specialty waffles and ice drinks to beat the late afternoon heat.

 
My Whoaffe with Pandan ice cream & Gula Melaka sauce $8.90. Whoa...the waffle smelt great when it arrived at our table. I was totally blown away by the crispy crust and soft fluffy center of the waffle, and the homemade pandan ice cream tasted heavenly with a very authentic pandan aroma. Thumbs up!

 
My sista's Whoaffle with Chocolate ice cream & Chocolate sauce $8.90. She was raving about the yummy chocolaty ice cream and crispy crusted waffle too!

 
Please do not be deceived by the seeming small portion of the waffles in the pictures. The waffles was really quite big piece, probably the bigger scoop of ice cream contributed to the false impression.

Our drinks Ice Mocha $6.50 and Root beer Float $4.50. They both tasted average, nothing to shout about.

 

 
Hatter Street cafe is a nice little place to chill with small group of friends over simple desserts and drinks. They do not serve any sort of savory food or snacks, and no gourmet coffee available here...just really good desserts and regular drinks. Seating space is really tight, so my advice is to avoid weekends peak, and don't come in groups of more than 4pax!

Good food bad service Cry Apr 01, 2014

As mentioned in the title, Azmaya provides good food but the service was horrible. Firstly, there was no air condition in the restaurant. Secondly, the place was hot and humid. Thirdly, wrong dishes were sent to us at least thrice. To make things worse, we waited for almost an hour for the broth to be served to us with all the vegetables and meat thawing on our table. That being said, the only saving grace is that the servings are generous and the wagyu beef was good.

A semblance of a Japanese bakery, the latest kid to shift into the old Tiong Bahru neighbourhood just a week ago is The Tastemaker Store. You might effortlessly mistake the entrance as an office door or a storage room. If I were to choose a word to describe my first impression of entering this bakery, it would be tranquil. The ambience inspires an unhurried, lazy afternoon.

For the mains, they offer toast sets like Lemon Curd Toast Sets and Kaya Toast Sets, as well as Burger Sets like my choice of Ham & Cheese Burger. The spread is reminiscent of old-school flavours with a whiff of contemporary style and an assembly put together from ingredients at Cold Storage. Unimpressive but filling, The Tastemaker need to up their ante in the increasingly saturated local cafe industry in the food department.

 

 


Their cakes were relatively more outstanding: the freshly baked rose cake and gula melaka cake managed to hold the desserts fort together. The rose flavour was rich and full bodied. The gula melaka cake was on the drier side, with grainy sugar scattered throughout the cake but was overall still enjoyable. If you have to choose: go for the rose cake!
The Tastemaker Store is only a week old, and from what I observe, are still on its unsteady steps to becoming a full-fledged cafe. The service staff are really humble, friendly and welcoming, giving The Tastemaker a delightful comfortable vibe. Although the food isn't much to be excited about, they are on their way to releasing local selections, including homemade Yam Cake, Laksa and Chicken Rice.

Cafe within a wine academy Smile Apr 16, 2014

We were just browsing around Facebook and found out another new cafe that just recently popped up around the private estate of Binjai Park in Bukit Timah which operates around the same basis, and decided to check them out. Taking the space of Taberna Wine Academy, it operates from 9am to 5pm in the day before the wine academy takes over at night. It is interesting to note that this however would be a temporary location, and they would relocate after the barista training is over and a new location for the cafe is being sourced.

 
The Flat White ($5.50) I had was one made of a blend of Brazilian and Sumatran beans. It exudes a milky taste along with the signature acidity of Sumatran blends for it’s body, and that earthy tone Brazilian beans are known for at the end.

 
Each coffee comes with a free croissant, but I was not too keen on it and decided to go for the Chocolate Danish ($2.80) instead at normal prices. Supplied from an unnamed supplier, it was flaky and carried just enough chocolate to taste, which was just sweet enough. The bread itself was alright; not too buttery.

Located in hip cafe enclave – Jalan Besar and helmed by blogger Peggy and friend, the cafe has a young and trendy vibe. Quirky decor, mostly of their mascot – Sir Antonio greets you as you step into the bright and spacious cafe.

 

 

 
Tiramisu ($7.50): We went with the staff’s recommendation of Horlicks, Ovaltine and Milo (only one shown here since they looked the same) flavours in the end. The tiramisu came in a cute jar which was rather interesting, but unfortunately, it didn’t live up to its looks. All three were lacking in the taste department, and it felt like the tiramisu had been made and left in the jar for quite sometime.

Sorry to say, but friendly service alone isn't enough for for my friends and I to return for a second visit.
