Brunch at Food for Thought (Review)

leave a comment »

Brunch always brings to mind a lazy sunny afternoon. A place untouched by time, with heavenly aromas of scrambled eggs and sausage wafting about like little fairies… No stress in mind and no deadlines to rush… Ahhh…

To celebrate mel’s birthday, we went to Food for Thought to try their brunch menu. There is something about the place that really delights me. Maybe it’s the roomy all white interior, or the delicious food… maybe it’s the smell of freshly cooked food wafting about the restaurant. Maybe it’s the fact that all the photos I took here turned out beautiful due to the superior lighting…. Or, maybe it’s how they’re always engaged in community projects like providing water for people in third world countries and education for the less fortunate.

Nah, I won’t pretend to be so good and kind. It’s simply the beautiful company. =)

And the good food. =) We ordered the basic works and it came just perfect. The eggs were creamy and eggy, the brioche was fluffy and light. And best of all, the portion was not over-whelming and just right for the both of us. However, if you’re bringing a growing boy be prepared to spend a bit more for a larger meal (house works- 12bucks, full works- 18bucks). We spent about 10bucks/pax (after GST etc). I think that this just might be my new favorite brunch cafe.

They serve regular mains as well like pasta and steak but we didn’t have enough space to try them all so they’d have to wait for another trip. I love how the breakfast menu is available from 9am – 5.30pm and not limited to a short time frame like other cafes. =) This way, late lunches can be brunchi-fied as well!

Food for Thought is now at the Art Museum, 8 Queen Street,  and definitely worth a visit.

EDIT: 14 March 2011. I went back to Food For Thought a week ago thinking to bring my boyfriend to try the brunch that I had raved about so much. We went on a Saturday afternoon and the place was packed to the brim. Normally this would be a good sign, but this round the food was bad. The scrambled eggs were only passable, the bacon was burnt and the fries were just so-so. I’m not sure if I’m ever going back again.
