    The cafe is nicely situated at Orchard Central. It's so rare to be able to find a nice & quiet cafe at a bustling Orchard road on a weekend afternoon. The cafe isn't very big but all the seats are comfortably spaced out which gives individuals/ groups their own cosy area to have a good read over some food or a cup of coffee.

    With quite a number of chef's recommended dishes listed on their menu, we decided to give those items a try.

    Soup of the day - Cream of Mushroom). The soup was clear and light. Something which very much went missing for this soup - Cream and mushroom. Neither was it creamy nor did I kind any form of mushroom in it. How strange. Though the taste was alright.

    Norwegian Smoked Salmon Sandwich. The bread was nicely toasted and the sandwich came with a generous portion of smoked salmon and the side salad came with a nice vinegar-like dressing. However, the dressing in sandwich was just a simple mayonaise which I thought could be better.

    Ultimate Beef Meatball Pasta. Pasta and the sauce were pretty standard. However, given that it's a chef's recommendation, I will expect alot from the meatballs. It's disappointing that the meatballs turned out to be quite small and dry.

    Cuppuccino. For a coffee-lover like me, the coffee served at a cafe like this is an important factor in determining whether I'll go back to the cafe again. I would say that the cuppuccino served here is okay. No deep impression of it though. But the caramel biscuit which came with the cuppa was tasty!

    On the overall, I think the food which I have tried is not too bad yet not fantastic. Maybe the next time I'm there, I will give the other items on the menu a try.

      I went on a Saturday afternoon and was glad to see the café not packed like the rest of the Orchard Road. The first impression of the place was nice and quiet. It is part of the book store so it does make sense to have a café there where people can read and relax over a cup of coffee. The decoration pretty much used books to decorate; you can see books on the wall and above the light bulbs. This should enable people to get into a reading mood fast.

      Next to the food, since it is our first time there, we decided to go for the chef recommendations. Below was our order: Soup of the Day (Cream of Mushroom), Norwegian Smoked Salmon Sandwich Ultimate Beef Meatball Pasta, Cappuccino and Iced Lemon Tea.

      Soup of the day (Cream of Mushroom): The accompanying bread was cold and hard. Personally I prefer them to be warm and soft. Although the soup was supposed to be cream of mushroom, but it tasted more of potato and celery soup to me. Nothing out of extraordinary.

      Norwegian Smoked Salmon Sandwich: This came in a generous portion and looks good in presentation as well. One bite into it, it makes me want to eat more. The bread is warm and soft, with the thick smoked salmon slices, lettuce and mayo makes a prefect combination. I would recommend this to everyone.

      Ultimate Beef Meatball Pasta: With such a name, I was disappointed when the dish was served, three small meatballs on a small serving of pasta. I do wish the meatballs do come in a larger portion since its name has Ultimate in it. The meatballs are a bit dry for my liking even thought they are quite flavorful. The sauce and pasta tasted like any normal pasta. Nothing wow about this dish.

      Overall the food can be pretty much hit and miss, of course there are other mains and desserts which I have yet to taste. I might be back to try some other mains. However, I would remember this place if I need a quiet place to relax and read a book, with food and drink to accompany me through an afternoon. After all, where can you find such a peaceful place to read in Orchard Road.

        They have both the 'normal' chairs as well as the purple cozy armchair. They thoughtfully kept the cozy armchair to the sides of the cafe, where one can sit lazily in it and look over the glass walls onto the shoppers taking the escalators. It's a good way to rest your mind after a 'busy' day shopping along Orchard Road. The high ceiling at this outlet, together with the adjacent bookstore gives the whole place a clean refreshing feeling.

        They have a pretty wide selection of food, considering the size of the cafe. Among the drinks, the iced Singapore sling caught my eye - non-alcoholic of course. I was told that I have to wait 5 minutes for the tea to brew. Not exactly a Singapore sling mocktail in my opinion, since it doesn't have much of pineapple taste, but rather just the resemblance in colour (seems like raspberry tea...). But it's a real refreshing drink to go with your book.

        Ultimate beef meatballs pasta - marked as chef's recommendation. The meatballs looked handmade, taste was ok and the serving of the pasta was decent for a cafe. I also had the velvet cake, something they have in addition to the standard chocolate-based cakes or cheesecakes offered in other cafes. When they served the cake, I was impressed that the staff bothered to decorate the plate and just serve me a plain sliced cake. I really can't taste the red-coloured layers of the cake, probably because it helped to neutralize the white-coloured layers of the cake that's quite sweet on its own (probably made from condensed milk...?...) and made the cake a great dessert to end your meal.
