Flock Cafe

What seems to be an old estate, is gradually having cafes being injected, probably to revive its liveliness.

Flock Café is one of the new settlers in Tiong Bahru since a few months back, and I am glad that I have taken a visit to this little friendly café.

San Pellegrino ($4.50) comes in several flavors, and as far as I can remember, there are sparkling, and limonata, which is the one I had above. My first taste of this drink doesn't leaves me a nice aftertaste. But with ever sip I took, I slowly grew to love it. Not to worry, it is not as sour as you think it might be, although we are seeing two lemons in the picture.

Ice Latte ($4.80). Staff is kind to suggest to leave the sugar aside when we were unable to decide if we needed sugar to add on to the drink. Sweet aftertaste even without the sugar!

Prawn, Avocado & Lemon Mayo ($12.90). When this plate of sandwich came, I doubted this could satisfy my hunger. Prawns are big, fresh, and crunchy, and lemon mayo simply made a very slight sour taste to the whole sandwich. Wasn't sure if I like avocado, but I had it cleaned from my whole plate, down my throat. Amazingly, I was full and happy with this dish!

This dish came with cherry tomatoes, which I initially thought it's mini sausages. But I left it untouched as I'm a non-tomato supporter.

Scrambled Eggs & Toast ($6.90) with smoked salmon and sausage (+ $7.00). I love the sausage as it filled my mouth with its overwhelming savoriness. Watery scrambled eggs, but it seems to be lacking of salt. Otherwise, their scrambled eggs would be perfect! Not a smoked salmon lover, but I believe salmon lovers would love it. There is no fishy taste, and most importantly, it is fresh and chewy when I gave it a try.

Not forgetting about their cakes, I had Banoffee Cake ($6.00). It tasted like the traditional Chinese Osmanthus Brown Sugar Fa Kueh, with banana flavour in it. I liked it a lot when also smeared with the cream, which makes it easier to chew, and enhances the taste of the cake.

Not forgetting a cup of coffee to go along with the cake. Flat White ($4.80). Not sure if the latte art was being disturbed, or there was no intention to have the pattern milk on it, it does seems to complement the cake I had.

Interior of the café. Small, but staffs are friendly and polite in answering your questions if you are not sure of what you are ordering.

Similarly, they are gracious to let their patrons know of their caffe's contents level.

Be mindful that their cakes are not listed in their menu, but written on the glass cover on the left side of the ordering counter. Do kindly check with them if you wish to know how this particular cake looks or taste like.

I liked what was written on the wall. "Morning has broken, mr. coffee has spoken." It simply depicts the usual mornings of most Singaporeans, with a cup of coffee to start their day.
