A new venture by Toh Soon Cafe 多春茶室 (popular for Toasts grilled over Charcoal fire and Hainanese Coffee), Coffee Cave has modern take with a fusion menu that has a blend of Western and Oriental menu. The newly opened branch can be found at Bishop Street and has a clean, well-renovated interior (no drains nor not tucked in a back lane) and proper tables and chairs. It feels like a standard modern cafe... though the menu seems to be a little confusing. The regulars' favorites are there (except Nasi Lemak), with quite a handful of new Western addition (like Salad, Steak, grills, Pasta etc). Not too sure how many are willing to come here for Western food but they certainly have rooms for improvements... in terms of service and food quality.
Half Boiled Egg
Toast with Half Boiled Egg Set (Rm 5.50)
Peanut Butter Toast Bread (Rm 4.50)
Soto Ayam (Rm 6)
Caesar Salad (Rm 13)
Kopi O (Rm2) and Kopi O Peng (Rm 3)
The main menu will not be ready until 11 am, so if you are there for breakfast, the choices are limited to Toasts, Salads and Soups. Not too sure if the Toasts were grilled over Charcoal fire but they were a little too dry to our liking. The Kaya and Peanut Butter spreads were alright though. Adding salt to the wound, our Hard Boiled Eggs were overcooked.... certainly not the quality we would expect from a Hainanese Toast specialist like Toh Soon.
The Caesar Salad was a complete mess drowning with Mayonnaise, it was a little heavy on the palate with the amount of dressing. Soto Ayam on the other hand, was standard-average; not a bad choice if you needed something to warm up the tummy.
