We started with the 3 breakfast board - Betty White, Pretty in Pink and Green with Envy. Each board consisted of a muffin, breakfast bowl and a smoothie. Even though the board is not available in their menu, you can order the Chia Breakfast Bowl and their daily muffins separately.
The breakfast bowls are indeed packed with goodness. Their main ingredients are similar but the seasonal fruits are different according to the colour theme. For example, the pink board will get dragonfruit and strawberry where else the green board will get kiwi and grapes. As for the white board, it will be banana and lychee. The muffins and smoothies also made according to their colour theme.

Next on the menu, the Homemade Roasted Nut Granola served with seasonal fruits and raspberry coulis, natural yogurt and honey. There stood a tall glass of probably one of the healthiest option in the menu. As the chef is heavily inspired by healthy fitspo food in breakfast, this light menu will be perfect for those who love a hearty breakfast but without the guilt.

Croissant lover, you are in for a treat! This is probably one of the best croissant ever. The crunch and the soft buttery centred was unforgettable. It's so good, you can literally find it at the menu under small stuff. The Cornetto is an Italian Croissant served with any of the two - Strawberry Jam, Nutella, Honey, Peanut Butter or Vegemite.
Savoury beans with freshly grilled sourdough sure was comforting, filling and oh-so-tasty. After all breakfast is the most important meal of the day, might as well put some effort into it. Best Beans Around is massive bowl of slow cooks ravioli beans with salami picante and fresh mozzarella topped with heirloom tomatoes and served with grilled sourdough. The salami picante sure gives the dish a more distinct smoky flavour. Unfortunately, this is not available on the menu.
