Coffee aficionados will make 2-month-old Toby’s Estate their favourite haunt now.
We are not at least surprised: with the Lamborghini of all coffee roasters majestically settled in a corner, even the farmers would be proud their beans are roasted here. This flagship outlet roasts their own beans upon demand, which explains for the bags of coffee beans snuggled up cosily beside the menacing machine. They do not have a roasting schedule, so count yourself lucky if you could catch this baby in action. We say roasting coffee beans never been that fanciful before.
Whilst sipping onto that adroitly-prepared cuppa of yours on the central communal table, do admire at their raw brick walls that flanked the tall ceilings or the huge hand-drawn mural and decipher if you are actually in a warehouse or a cafe. No more enduring till the weekends to enjoy your beloved brunch: you could expect breakfast served daily till 3pm, when you finally drag your lazy ass out of bed.
When it is almost impossible to find more than 2-week-old coffee beans on their shelves, you can rest assure that these folks mean business.
With coffee beans like these, the latte better be good. And it did.
The intense aroma and the velvety texture of the coffee commanded a nod from us, and it was a indeed a joy to drink.
Our Eggs benedict was blanketed in a watery, yolk-like hollandaise sauce instead of the traditional thick version, but we are not complaining. Thin slices of smoked salmon rested upon the brioche that were hailed from The Bread Project, and we would be lying if we were not enjoying every bite of that buttery crisp sweet bread. Our only grumble was that one of the eggs spent a minute too long in the water.
This simple but unimpeachable nosh greeted us with a jaw-dropping amount of scrambled eggs sprawled across the plate and screamed ‘cholesterol’. The creamy and fluffy eggs could easily put Micky D’s rendition to shame, when the huge portion alone is hard to argue against. Sidekicks were 2 thick brioche toasted till perfection: crisp on the outside and buttery-soft inside, too bad jam was missing in action to company the toasts with. Remember, sharing is caring.
Snag a seat on the charming alfresco lest you get intimidated by the steel engine. And it helps that we need not shell out a bomb for a catch-up sesh with great buds over good coffee and grub.
Now we know where to seek comfort when Kith is full-house.
