As the name suggests of this cafe, Cozy Corner Coffee is set in a corner of Everton Park and is a cafe that prides itself with good coffee. They serve up a wide range of brewed coffee as well as flavoured ones. There will be surely something for every coffee lover out there.
Walk inside and you will see one side of the wall with black and white graffiti wallpaper. The space is spacious, clean and chic. I particularly like their full length glass doors and windows, making the cafe have an open and welcoming feeling. Cozy Corner has free wifi and we saw several students studying when we were there.
Cozy Corner offers some cakes for those with sweet tooth. Prices are quite reasonably ranged from $5.80 to $6 plus. Besides cakes, they also offer Savoury food for the hungry such as Pasta, Lasagne and Paninis all priced below $10. They do not have an extensive selection of food but I guess, is sufficient to food the hungry.
As we were there for tea, we tried their Salted Caramel Chocolate Cake. I was a tat bit disappointed because there really wasn't much Salted Caramel Taste. Rather, I felt like I was having a chocolate cake. The chocolate layers were nice and rich but, the cream layers lack oomph.
They also have magazines in the cafe for those looking for something to read while having some cake and coffee. What's more to life than an afternoon spent reading while having a slice of cake and a drink? For those who are looking for such a place, Cozy Corner can be on your list.

Roosevelt's Diner & Bar is an all-day diner and bar that serves up a wide range of American-style dishes and drinks at affordable prices in an ambient setting. When we stepped into Roosevelt's we felt that we entered a diner in New York; with it's full length windows, industrial-chic interior and cozy ambience.
We were there at evening time and the restaurant was lighted up with warm, orange ceiling bulbs and candles were placed on every table. Patrons could truly feel relaxed and at ease in this warm environment. We also really liked that the furniture were nicely spaced out as it allows diners to have sufficient personal space to engage in conversations comfortably.
We got to find out that Roosevelt's pride themselves for their extensive Wine Menu. Apart from that, they also serve up a few types of Beer and cocktails. As both of us enjoy White Wine better than Red, we sampled all 3 of their Whites. The lightest of the three is the Blanc-Combard ($6 for 75ml) from France. It is slightly acetic with some fruity aroma. The next in line is the Sauvignon Blanc ($7 for 75ml) from New Zealand. It has a fruity taste and I feel is the least spicy wine of the three. The strongest is the Chardonnay, slightly woody with fruity flavours and a buttery note.
We ordered the Garlic Prawns ($12) as one of our Side Dish. Roosevelt's sides range from $7-$12 each. We would love to try their other sides such as Truffle Fries and Fried Oysters the next time we are here. Z's favourite is the Garlic Prawns. She likes is so much that she had 2 servings. The prawns are evenly cooked with an aromatic garlic flavour. The prawns are crunchy whichI would prefer to the soggy ones.
Another side that we tried is their Jalapeño Bacon Mac and Cheese ($11). The Jalapeño flavour was really strong and it added a spicy note to the dish. What was different from Roosevelt's Mac and Cheese is that the added a layer of Bread Crumbs on it, which made the whole Mac and Cheese drier in nature. Personally, I would like the Mac and Cheese to be less dry.
For our dessert, we ordered the Flourless Chocolate cake served with a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream as well as Mixed Berries and Apple Crumble also topped with a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream. I like that they pair their dessert with Ice Cream as it gives the desserts a balance.
Overall, we had a good dinner, completed with great drinks and desserts!

Old-school themed cafe Smile Apr 23, 2014

The first thing that will catch your eye when you approach The Provision Shop is the row of small colourful chairs lined at the corridor. As you enter the place, you will see these colours on the wall; be it on paintings, on their furniture or their tableware. They give the place a vintage modern chic feel in contrast with the white and black-tiled walls.

I like how all the slightest details in the cafe are consistent with the theme of restaurant. We ordered a Long Black ($4) and Flat White ($5). The coffee was served in old school cups. We found the coffee quite aromatic. The coffee price is quite reasonable I would say. For non-coffee lovers, The Provision Shop also serve up alcoholic beverages such as beer and cider as well as non-alcoholic floats and teas.
Belinda Perogis ($6) was chosen because it looked interesting from the menu. It is actually Polish dumplings filled with mashed potato and cheese. Something like a gnocchi or a tortellini. It is topped with sour cream, bacon and onions. If you would like extra toppings, you can add $1. This dish was served hot. Personally, I adore anything with cheese and thus, I quite like this dish.
The Provision Shop also offers other hot food such as sandwiches, pastas and more. I think there is probably something for everyone.
Overall, I would say The Provision Shop scores in its ambience as well as it's consistency in theme. I guess service is something that can be brushed up on as a warm and welcoming service adds another pull factor to the cafe.

The location is quite convenient; just a 5 minutes stroll from Telok Ayer station and Tanjong Pagar station. There are actually quite a few restaurants that are worth trying around the area as well! When we reached at around 1 plus on a Sunday afternoon, there was a short queue (around 5 tables) so be prepared to wait a little while if you are planning on checking out the cafe anytime soon!

 
I must admit that I was attracted by the cool vibe that the cafe gave off! I am sure you can see from the pictures above. Even though the name of the cafe doesn't sound like it, it is really quite a nice place to hang out with friends or family on a weekend morning/afternoon.
Scrambled eggs with smoked salmon $6.50. To be honest, we were quite surprised when this was served to us. The portion was really small but come to think of it, the price is quite a good reflection of the portion. You definitely will not be full from eating this but well, a smaller portion of this means more variety of other items right? [:

 
I love the texture of the scrambled eggs! But, the taste of it was quite normal. Maybe you can add a croissant or something else to go along with this? They have several other scrambled eggs selections (avocado, parma ham, ham & cheese).
Pineapple upside down (something along this line) $5. For me, this was the better dessert. I am not a fan of pineapple but somehow this managed to make me continue eating it after the first mouth. Definitely worth my calories!

 
Overall, I would say I was not impressed by the food and drinks that I tried. But to be fair, they have many other selections that I have not had the chance to try yet. I heard that they serve up good salads so if you are on a salad (healthy) diet, you can have a try and share with us about your experience!

&Made is a restaurant co-created by 3-star Michelin Chef, Bruno Menard and Deliciae Hospitality Management. It aims to reinvent informal food such as burgers and salads and bring diners a higher quality experience.
&Made also collaborates with L'Entrecote to serve up their steak in the restaurant. Havingheard positive reviews of Steak Frites at L'Entrecote, we decided to give this place a try.

As &Made highly recommends The "B" Burger ($19), my friend ordered that. It was their most popular burger that promises a juicy patty on the menu. The burger is served alongside with fries. We were disappointed that the fries were served cold. The burger was alright but not fantastic. The portion was on the small side relative to the price of the dish. We felt that for the price, it was not very worth it.

 
The steak came nicely sliced in pieces. We found that the order was more cooked than we had ordered it. The medium rare was more like a medium well and the medium well was done cooked. We found the meat not as tender as we had hoped for it to be.

 
Overall, we thought that there were room for improvements that could be made to the overall menu.
