Bread yard, was one brunch place that I’ve always wanted to visit because I’ve heard how affordable their offerings are and their delicious bread puddings! Being situated in SUTD previously, as a weirdo, I have always felt uneasy about visiting other people’s schools, hence I’ve never made plans to pay them a visit then.
Bread Yard has moved and opened its doors at One-North, to not only cater to students, but to the working crowds too! And the place is pretty awesome, and conducive for studying, making it to my list!
Located at a much more convenient location, at Fusionolpolis, a 2 minute walk away from One-North MRT station, I got so excited that I flew down to visit them within days of their opening.Is it me or does this guy have really long legs?
I liked how Bread Yard was designed with its brick walls, and wood themed furniture. They even have their bread makers in house, to ensure the supply of fresh breads for us! The clear glass encasing the cafe was also a HUGE plus because of the natural lighting available. A really serene and nice place to be with a good book at any time, except during the lunch hour. It gets kinda crazy.
This is their really affordable fare, and I even heard that these prices have been raised from the initial ones. Wow. What makes Bread Yard incomplete is its coffee quality. First of all, it doesn’t look good at all from the menu, and secondly, and mainly, I’ve heard a couple of bad reviews about their not-too-impressive coffee.
We very much wanted to try the pancakes because it sounds so good. Unfortunately, we were feeling fat on that day as usual, so we got 2 sets of Breadfirst and a Bread Pudding instead.
1. Poached Eggs with Smoked Salmon ($12) – Eggs Benedict basically.
Possibly the most photogenic Eggs Benedict I’ve seen, but there’s really nothing to shout about for this dish. Your usual eggs ben, with some really good lighting for a great picture, and oh, they definitely deserve credit for the perfectly poached eggs. However, the smoked salmon served along with this were all shredded, as if they were there to make it seem more generous. It wasn’t quite a pleasant experience. The bread was pretty awesome though!
2. Scrambled Eggs with Everything ($15) This is one of the MOST affordable big breakfast I’ve encountered. Generous servings of EVERYTHING on this plate at just $15 nett.
I loved the sauteed mushrooms, and it is really everything I would want on my plate. Besides, everything tasted good as well. I definitely recommend this if you’re famished and want a variety of items when you’re here at bread yard!
3. Banana Coconut Bread Pudding with Gula Meleka Sauce ($6)
Oh my. I fell for this dish SO HARD, and it definitely lived up to the expectations its name on the menu suggested. It is surprisingly not as sweet as I would expect it to be. The gula meleka sauce was a great companion to the banana and coconut taste in the pudding. Eaten together with the ice cream, the hot-cold combination, and the combination of all of the items with my favorite BANANA blew me away and we were left impressed!
We enjoyed our experience at Bread Yard, and I found the items there to be really affordable as compared to the other cafes we’ve been to. The servings were also generous, and the other items of the menu looked pretty awesome as well, such as the other variations of their bread puddings and pancakes. I liked how we are able to customize our breakfasts, and it is something that fussy eaters would really love! A pity about their poor coffee though, otherwise it would definitely be one of the top of my cafe list.
