It’s always a joy to discover and experience new cafes, especially when it’s a vintage café of some sort! Because of my ongoing collaboration with Quaker, I visited Brunches Café recently to try out their Quaker-inspired dishes. The food was awesome, and so was the décor of the café – Everything’s so vintage and chic, and almost everything you can find in that café is up for sale! Yes, even the chair I was seated on had a price tag on it. =P It was eye candy from the moment I stepped in – Everything was so lovely and nice, I wish I can bring everything home!
Brunches Café is a quaint little café located about 5 minutes’ walk from Farrer Park MRT station. It serves the usual all-day breakfast (till 6pm everyday) and the normal café works of fries, pasta, pizza, etc. This is the first thing that will catch your eye as you enter the café:
A multi-purpose vintage car.
I can totally do with a car like that in my living rom. It holds the sauces, sugar, salt & pepper, AND doubles up as a seating space for 4! Too gorgeous and perfect. Nope, we didn’t get to sit in that space, so we pretended to pose for photos while trying to get that space into our frame, just so you can see how cute it looks, with brown leather seats and all. We took the seats just next to it, hoping that the customers would leave and we can take over the seats. Didn’t happen. =.=
The rest of the café is pretty much decorated with all kinds of vintage knick knacks. Totally nostalgic for people of my era. I recognize the thermal flasks, lamps, radios, telephones and clocks. They were memories of my childhood! Almost every chair at every table looks different and unique. Those we were seated on are converted from oil tanks. Very cool.
Love this row of little house lamps – Functional, whimsical and dreamy!
So, the reason why I was at the café was to try their Quaker-inspired dishes!
The Quaker Multigrain Cereal Parfait was packed with all the goodness in one cup!
My girls love yogurt and oats, so this was right up their alley. We decided to have it as appetizers instead of desserts! =P
The main courses came next. The Quaker Sweet Corn Oat Meal Porridge had a taste of my childhood in it. It’s slightly sweet but surprisingly, matched pretty well with the savory sunny side up and sautéed mushrooms and asparagus. Very healthy & appetizing dish.
My personal favorite of the lot was the Creamy Chicken Risotto, cooked with Quaker oats for rice. It was savory with huge chunks of tender chicken in every mouthful. So very satisfying! That’s the good thing about having oats in your diet – You get full but you don’t feel guilty for eating too much, because it’s really healthy!
We also ordered other dishes on the menu to try and we loved it!
The BBQ Chicken pizza was good! Thin-crusted with abundance of chicken chunks, rocket leaves and appetizing BBQ sauce. Oh, I’m so craving for it now!
We wanted to try an item from the all-day breakfast section and decided to go for French Toast with mixed berries. I love the generous serving of mixed berries – Great match for the toast!
We lingered in the café even after we finished the food, just because it was so cosy and chill. Would love to come back again soon!
