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. Standing alone as a 2 storey level building, I would say it is pretty established. The concept of the cafe is terrific too. 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. 🙂
I thought this was the main door to its eatery. But no.
Apparently, the eatery locates just another level below the toilets. How mysterious ?
Macchiato- Espresso topped with cream
— High caffeine to make me stay awake for the long day ahead 🙂
Buttermilk Pancakes with pork Bacon. ($15)
Okay, so here comes the critiques.
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
