The Coffee Daily Again

coffee daily brunch

Yes. It’s true. Brunch is now served at The Coffee Daily. We were told that The Mbassadors would be the first to feature their new menu. Many thanks guys! Check out our previous article on The Coffee Daily HERE!!!

Before we dig in, do take note of their brunch hours:

Weekdays – 12pm to 4pm

Weekends – 9.30am to 4pm

They’ll be having a dinner menu real soon so hang on for that!

coffee daily tuna toast

Tuna sashimi, avocado, Japanese cucumber, shallots, poached egg with a side of toast and salad

Tuna Tartare Toast, $13

BANG! For the portion you’re getting, thirteen dollars is a great deal! Just look at the size of this baby. I love the fact that all the ingredients were really fresh. The poached egg sealed the deal for me with respect to this dish. The feeling of satisfaction when the egg yolk bursts when you dip the sourdough toast in its nucleus is unexplainable. You have to try it for yourself to know.

Taste wise, we’ve got nice rich creamy notes from the avocado, egg yolk and tuna paired with the strong, acidic bite of the shallots and dash of lemon. The cucumbers (not just any cucumbers but Japanese ones… fancy) give a nice crunch to the overall mushylicious (of course I made that word up) dish.

coffee daily salmon and guac

Aburi torched smoked salmon with smashed guac & poached egg

Salmon & Guac Toast, $15

Hands down, this is the best dish in The Coffee Daily’s brunch menu. The amount of freshly smashed guac used for this dish is awesome and their generosity pays off tremendously. I initially thought they added cheese to this dish but the slightly sour and creamy texture was from the guac!

When I witnessed the preparation of this dish, I felt that the torching of the smoked salmon was a novelty thing but it gives a bitter after taste to the otherwise salty smoked salmon. Rather than fighting one another for superiority, this dish is a perfect mash up of flavors that serve to complement one another.

Pork Bockwurst, steaky bacon, sautéed mushrooms, mini potato pancakes & scrambled eggs served with toast and salad

The Big Daily, $18

Think Macdonald’s Big Breakfast but on steroids. The highlight of this dish would be the huge Pork Bockwurst sausage that comes along with this dish. I’m really sad that there’s only one of those sausages though.

If you’re watching that waist line, this dish packs a heap loads of calories but it’s so worth it! I think I’ve eaten enough eggs for the day. Time to work out!

Tolido’s Espresso Nook – Brunch without Breaking Your Bank

It’s easy to find good brunch places in Singapore. However, it’s not easy to find ones that are not expensive. A brunch/breakfast and a coffee in Singapore generally sets you back more than 20 dollars!!!

When we come across a cafe which serves yummy and cheap brunches, we are ever so eager to recommend said cafe to our readers. It so happens that this week, we found such a cafe! Enter Tolido’s Espresso Nook on Crawford Lane.

Tolido’s Espresso Nook Salmon Carbonara

Salmon Carbonara, $17

The Menu

Tolido’s Espresso Nook serves all day breakfast, pasta and a few sandwiches. For breakfast, you get most egg variations here like omelette, scrambled egg or sunny side up. If you are vegetarian, there are few sweet selections you can choose from such as French toast or pancakes.

Fancy something more Italian in nature? They offer a decent variety of pastas albeit with a spicy twist. There’s also an interesting locally inspired dish like 462 prawn laksa pasta. Prices start from 10 dollars. We could not believe that our All American breakfast costs just 10 bucks. A great deal indeed!

The Ambience

The cafe is small and cosy with both indoor and outdoor dining options. Choose from a normal dining table or a couch to gobble up your brunch. The latter is usually occupied whenever we visit the place though. It can get pretty packed during lunch hour as there are many offices nearby so come early or after the peak hour if you want to avoid the crowds.

Tolido’s Espresso Nook All American Breakfast

American Breakfast Platter, $10

The Food

We’ve tried both breakfast and pasta here before. The food is decent although we would not say that they serve the best brunch in Singapore. Their serving of an American breakfast is relatively smaller compared to other places but how can we complain? It costs less than half of what most cafes in Singapore charge!

If you have a sweet tooth, don’t miss their Pandan waffle, which comes with vanilla ice cream and Gula Melaka drizzled on top. We highly commend Tolido’s Espresso Nook for their effort in serving good and sincere food at an affordable price.

The Coffee

Their coffee is lovely. They source their coffee beans from Yahava Koffeeworks. If you are a coffee addict like me, don’t leave the place without trying their cuppa.

Where to Locate Them

Tolido’s Espresso Nook is located on the ground floor of an old building along Crawford Lane. Not many people may know where it is. It’s near Lavender MRT but I usually go there from Nicoll Highway MRT or sometimes walk from Bugis or Arab Street Area.

They are also open quite early in the morning on weekdays (8 AM). Do note that they are closed every Monday!

Great Places for Brunch with Mom

Pei Xia Ang

Sunday mornings are for sleep ins and lazy brunches. Mothers’ Day happens to be this Sunday, and there really isn’t a better way to spend Sunday than #BrunchWithMom.

brunch with a relaxed vibe at club street social

1. Club Street Social

Take a break from the work week at Club Street Social. Chill out in the relaxed and modern vibe of the place, as the waiters serve you delectable food and artfully-prepared beverages.

On top of the usual eggs and panini, they serve fluffy and light pancakes made with fresh cream. People with sweet teeth are gonna enjoy the orange maple syrup. Mmmm!

brunch at Epicurious cafe for unique knick knacks

2. Epicurious Cafe

Epicurious is a combination of the words “epicure”, meaning  a person devoted to fine dining, and “curio”, which refers to a collection of knick-knacks. At Epicurious cafe, visitors get to travel back in time with the collection of Singapore items that were mostly used in the 80s-90s. This is one great place for mom to relieve the good ol’ days.

For fans of Dr Seuss, this is the chance to try out Green Eggs and Ham, a dish inspired by the popular children’s book. Not to worry though, the green of the dish is achieved by using basil pesto, so you don’t have to worry about any artificial colourings.

brunch at Common Man Coffee Roasters for specialty coffee

3. Common Man Coffee Roasters

With the vision of being a champion for specialty coffee throughout Asia, Common Man Coffee Roasters (CMCR) are famous for their cold brews and their signature blend. These beverages are prepared with a custom Synesso espresso machine, a top-notch machine for espressos. If mom loves trying out specialty coffees, you know the place!

Try out the Organic Eggs Benedict with tender beef cheek for a meal that will leave you wanting more.

brunch at Forty Hands for coffeeshop with fresh beans

4. Forty Hands

Of the belief that it takes 40 hands to produce a single cup of coffee, the founders of Forty Hands established a coffee revolution in the sleepy neighbourhood of Tiong Bahru. Forty Hands burst into the coffee scene with the mission of elevating the status of coffee appreciation, serving specialty coffee made with fresh beans.

To accompany your cuppa, try one of their Toasties from their selection.

brunch at Strictly Pancakes for pancakes galore

5. Strictly Pancakes

A traditional breakfast staple, one can never really go wrong when choosing to go with pancakes. At Strictly Pancakes, they serve literally all types of pancakes, from sweet to savoury, they’ve got it. Spend quality time with mom over pancakes, and explore new and unique flavours of pancakes with her.

Apart from the usual flavours of pancakes, they serve garlic prawn pancakes. Made from a special garlic sauce that is creamy and buttery in taste, this pancake is the one that seals the deal for me.

brunch at Wild Honey

6. Wild Honey

As you approach the place, the let the saccharine scent of honey and flowers guide you to the front doors of Wild Honey. Take mom on a culinary journey, as the all-day breakfast here is inspired by the different foods from around the world.

For seafood lovers, the Scandinavian is the dish you would want to order. Relish a taste of the Scandinavian countries with this dish. Served with grilled fresh salmon fillet, drizzled with special hollandaise sauce and accompanied with asparagus, potato rosti, and peal tomatoes on the side.

brunch at Montreux Jazz Cafe for jazz and good food

9. Montreux Jazz Cafe

People do not usually associate brunch and jazz together, but at Montreux, they managed to pull it off very well. With live performances and a special weekend jazz brunch menu, this is the place for mom if she loves jazz.

Dishes are named after jazz stars and some cheeky all-time favourites include: B. B. Burger, coquelet façon Quincy Jones, and Ella cheesecakes.

Take the time to slow down and unwind with mom over brunch. Show her how much you love her by being there for her and spending quality time with the most important woman in our lives.

Happy Mothers’ Day, mom!
