It was time for catching with *April again, an almost yearly affair. The chosen venue was Three Cups Cafe - I was supposed to come by months back, but had been lured into JBM Coffee at the same building instead. This time, I managed to go 2 floors up to this cafe finally.
A very open concept it was, albeit being inside a mall's unit - one could easily see all their patrons dining or chilling out on the escalator itself, or passing by this cafe.
I was comforted by the fact that their menu and shelves consisted of more than just sandwiches, which was what I have heard of. We wanted a dessert definitely, and had a hard time choosing - so, we settled on the Valrhona Salted Caramel Tart (SGD$4.30) to start the meal with.
Perhaps it was Christmastime, the number stand came with these adorable little bells and a sweet "Have a nice day" message, a simple but thoughtful gesture.
The Valrhona Salted Caramel Tart came with a thick, rich and sticky dark chocolate ganache, blending surprisingly well with the salted caramel flavor. The crust was light and crumbly, gentle to the teeth and palate; the entire tart was well worth it.
We also shared the Salmon Scrambly (SGD$11.80) under the "All Day Breakfast" section of the menu - scrambled eggs with Norwegian salmon on toasted brioche with side salad. A fairly hearty dish with crispy toast, bouncy salmon and soft, creamy eggs. It wasnt the best I have tasted, but it wasn't the worst too - average overall.
For drinks, *April had the Hot Chocolate (SGD$5.50); she said the chocolate flavor was quite distinctive.
I had the Cafe Mocha (SGD$5.60) which was rather aromatic with nutty hints and the luscious sweetness of chocolate sauce.
