Prive Bakery Cafe

1st May 2010
(Finally manage to complete my Apr 2010 backlogs. May is coming to an end and I'm just starting my 1st May's post!)

Waking up early on Labour day just to have breakfast at Prive, located at Marina Keppel Bay. Is also one of the cafe in Singapore that serve all day breakfast menu. Brunch seem to be a trend in Singapore. We were surprised that the cafe were pretty packed already at 9am so we were not the only early! Prive Baking Cafe is a wonderful al fresco dining place to relax and chill out with friends and family on weekends and holidays. For a moment, I felt like I was somewhere overseas. Probably for now nobody will want to dine outdoor with this kind of super humid & hot weather. If the weather starts to cool down I will definitely wish to go again for the ambiance and to try the dessert though not for the food.

There were many good reviews about them so we went with much expectation. I was disappointed to say that the food and service were not as expected. The wait for the food was too long. Our orders were taken at 9.15am but drinks were only served half an hour later. Then follow by another long wait for the food which came after several complaints. We waited more than 1 hour for the food though the waitress was apologetic. For the food, let the pictures speak for itself...

Egg Benedict - S$14.50++

Half of an English muffin, topped with bacon, poached eggs, and hollandaise sauce served with some salad. Is this how Egg Benedict should look like and taste like? Somehow it doesn't look quite right to me even though was my first encounter with EB as the hollandaise sauce was liked a baked layer of cheese instead of saucy and it actually tasted quite cheesy.

The muffin and bacon was too dry for my liking but at least the poached egg was nicely done that manage to salvage the whole dish.

Ultimate Breakfast - S$17.00++

Everything on this plate was ultimate but was ultimately dry and cold except for the baked bean. The sunny side up was overdone, the toast was cold, the bacon was over fried though very crispy and even the saute mushroom was dry too.

Cafe Latte & TWD French Earl Grey Tea - S$4.80++ ea

Looking at all those yachts while sipping our coffee and tea, we were wondering how much to rent one to go out to the sea one day with family and some close friends. If it is affordable that will be terrific.!
