Located in the ula ula Valley Point Shopping Mall, lies this cafe. It serves casual American-inspired cuisine. It gives a cozy and homey feel as we step into the cafe. The first thing that I notice is the cute wall mural painting on the white wash wall, surrounded by the low lying tables and chairs around.
Another unique I notice is that the tables by the bench with pillows are actually converted from the old traditional sewing machines. So unique.
As there is no service charge or GST in this cafe, one orders, pays, collects cutlery and water from the counter. A number stand will be given and food will be served to you later.
Truffle Carbonara ($20)
spaghetti, garlic, onion, bacon, mushroom, basil, olive oil, Parmesan, fresh egg, and truffle paste
It looks like a dish of stir fried noodles coated with eggs, topped with truffle paste and Parmesan when served. Smells great too. It reminds of the Hokkien Fried Prawn Noodles with its egg coated noodles. Tastes quite flavourful.
Truffle Scrambled Eggs ($18)
black truffle paste, pork sausage, roasted mushrooms, tomato, greens and toast
The serving is surprising huge with the big amount of black truffle paste on top of the scrambled eggs. The stir fried sausage with tomato and mushrooms is quite tasty. But the greens the mixture is sitting on, looks a bit black. The scrambled eggs tastes a bit overcooked and lacks of creamy texture.
There is 2 kinds of soups available and we order both. Each cup is served with a slice of soft chewy bread.
Tomato Bisque ($5/ cup)
Served in a cup, it tastes quite creamy and not too tangy.
Clam Chowder ($5/ cup)
The soup is creamy with bits of clam, but a bit too salty for me.
Overall the food is not bad, and further more the serving is huge and more than enough for us. The staffs are quite friendly and helpful when we ask for water and small plates for sharing. Quite a relaxing place to enjoy a delicious and peaceful meal.
