Starbucks doesn't have the best food around, but the lovely ambience and the fantastic coffee make up for the average food. I visited Starbucks to have breakfast on a weekend morning and loved the experience. The ambience is relaxed and the smell of coffee is everywhere. The chocolate croissant I had was not spectacular but pretty good, with a nice flaky crumb and good chocolate. The dark mocha frappe was also amazing! Try it if you are there.
I had the signature kit kat blizzard at dairy queen for dessert the other day. I find it really fascinating that they can serve ice cream to you upside down! The ice cream itself though is not outstanding. It kind of just tastes like a slightly upgraded version of McDonalds ice cream being the soft serve airy type, yet the prices are much higher and a cup cost me $5!
This cafe only serves gourmet pies, coffee and tea too! The pie selection is pretty extensive with both savory and sweet pies available. The pies are pretty good in terms of taste, the chicken pie I had being flavourful with moist chunks of juicy chicken inside. The pastry was buttery and crumbly, and the mash was smooth and creamy too. Yet the portions are not very big so I wasnt very full.
Ikea actually serves breakfast options too, unlike what many people think. The cafe serves very affordable breakfast options. Although the food is not fantastic, the low prices are a huge draw. The tuna croissant I had costs $2.50 and came with a coffee to boot! The croissant was crisp and crunchy but not buttery enough for my liking and was very light. Tuna was generous though!
Ya kun is my go to place for a good and reliable local breakfast. The food here is unpretentious simple and affordable and it is really comfort food to me. I like the kaya toast which is a nice brown colour and very crisp and crunchy. The kaya filling is eggy and sweet with a lovely coconut pandan flavour. The drinks are also good, I had a full bodied milk tea to accompany my breakfast.
