Have a Cup of Macchiato—-‘FIVE and DIME’ eatery.

DSC01603-001

Macchiato- simple means: ‘marked’ or ‘stained’. 

On a Saturday, I had brunch.— Nothing is more pleasing than this.  Jason and I settled in FIVE and DIME for peaceful brunch before my work. yes, Brunch together. That’s all we ask for. I had always assumed that Five and Dime is located at Clarke Quay. Well, it is, but not exactly. It is better to drive your way there. DSC01628-001 Standing alone as a 2 storey level building, I would say it is pretty established. The concept of the cafe is terrific too.  DSC01629-001 Oh, and when I say it is better to drive your way there, I meant it! Because, parking is free behind the eatery! Hassle-free eh? And there is likely to have parking spaces as most people walks here. Trust me, I surveyed. 🙂 DSC01630 DSC01590-001

Back door of Five and Dime. — Which leads to a staircase and a glass door.  DSC01591-001

I thought this was the main door to its eatery. But no.

 Apparently, the eatery locates just another level below the toilets. How mysterious ? 

So, this is how it looks like inside this mystery place. Friendly staffs and cosy ambiance. Hmm.. but rather typical tho.  DSC01594-001 DSC01595-001 DSC01600-001 DSC01599-001 DSC01596-001

This ‘style’ of Menus made of paper and clipped on wooden board are seen practically in most Sgcafes.— Norm.  DSC01597-001

Time to NOMNOMx!! DSC01623-001 DSC01626-001

Jason was obviously having a great time munching on the Panini! LOLDSC01627-001

Okay, so here comes the critiques.

The FOOD

1. Buttermilk Pancakes

It was fluffy indeed. I love their butter tho! Odd, it may sounds but it just tasted different from ordinary. Wonder if there is some kind of secret recipe to it.

2. Egg Mayo and Bacon Panini Just like all sandwiches, it tasted nothing special. Something that I can make out of my own kitchen. However, I do love their bacon– crispy!

The PRICE Average pricing for average meals.– Yeah, that’s How I feel about it. 

The AMBIANCE It was cosy and lovely. A good hideout place to chill and get rid of those dreadful weekdays. A place that can kick away any MONDAY BLUES!  The concept of having two storeys– eatery and school hall. I will come here to study or read a good book.

In conclusion to my above comments, this is a place worth re-visiting! So why not give it a try? 🙂 New found BRUNCH PLACE. xD

Located at : 297 River Valley Road. Singapore 238338
