Luxe Singapore Cafe: Awesome brunch place

Wednesday, 4 November 2015

After learning that Luxe, the famed Sydney Cafe which opened a branch in Singapore, had updated their menu, I went to check it out and I did not regret it one bit. In fact, after that, I returned for another session because it was just too lovely for me not to think about it again. Read on to find out what I had during my two recent visits there.
As its name suggests, Luxe is luxurious, but it is not a luxury that is out of everyday reach; the restaurant focuses on quality product and premium service, but in an unpretentious manner that is always inclusive. It appeals to diners looking for not just a meal, but an experience. Luxe’s focus is on creating an approachable environment that offers amazing all-day dining — be it brunch on Sunday, lunch on Thursday, or dinner and drinks on Friday night — for anybody and everybody. - Luxe Website

LET'S EAT!
Before we start, can I just say that I love the surroundings? So comfortable and and spacious. Makes it a lovely place to hang out in the morning.
During my two visits there, I had a cafe latte ($5) and also tried their Long Black ($4). Both were smooth, but more of medium-bodied, I reckon? For me, I like full-bodied coffees though. Just a matter of preference.
My friend had the mocha ($5) and she loved it.
Aussie Breakfast ($26) is a little pricey, but the huge serving pretty much makes up for the wallet pain. The dish is delivered to you with full on scrambled eggs, bacon, cumin roast tomato, pork & fennel sausages, avocado and mushrooms. Creamy butter (which might be easily well mistaken as mayonnaise) is generously served on a smaller dish bowl.
Laying it out nicely on top of the toast and then biting into it reminds me why this visit is worth every muscle I used to pull myself out of bed on a Sunday morning to have it.
During the first visit, we went and had the Eggs Royale Smoked Salon ($20). However, we changed the Eggs Royale to scrambled eggs instead, and added sausages ($6) to the dish.
The scrambled eggs were really awesome and I savored every bite. On my second visit with another friend, I had to order it again, this time, for reals. Without changing anything. And this is how it really looks like!
Please, let it flow.
We also had the Ricotta Hotcake with Berries, exploding candy and maple syrup ($20), and I loved this so much even though it was just 1 hotcake. I didn't really taste the exploding candy, however, this is still one of the best hotcakes I've ever eaten.
Still, you might find it expensive paying $20 for a single hotcake. I will order this again if my hotcake craving kicks in.
As you know, I love brunch, and I'm pretty glad to have found a place where I can return for my favourite meal of the weekend. 

If you're like me, but you usually can't see yourself waking up in time for brunch, you'll be pleased to know that Luxe recently extended their brunch timings to 3pm.
