The Place I am happy to chance upon Brunetti which is located off Orchard Road in Tanglin Mall. Offering all day breakfast on its menu and more famously for the wide array of desserts and coffee, I like the peaceful setting of Brunetti given that it is not located near the busy strip along Orchard Road. However, the crowd on Sunday afternoon can be daunting given that there are many children classes conducted in Tanglin Mall. Otherwise, it is a relaxing place to while the afternoon away while sipping coffee and having ice-cream.
The Food I was greeted with a plethora of desserts the moment I stepped into Brunetti. Cakes, cupcakes, macaroons, ice-cream and eclairs – the list sounds too sweet already.
From the All-Day Breakfast menu, we had the Egg and Toast ($10.90) as it seems just like the perfect combination – 2 sunny side up eggs, toast and fries. This is a safe option which can hardly go wrong.
I was craving for some Truffle Fries ($10) and decided on it for my sides. It is pretty average in my opinion as there was only a tinge of the truffle taste in the fries.
The Hazelnut and Pistachio ice-cream ($7.50 – medium size) here is probably one of the best around, rivalling the ones from Artisan Alfero Gelato. The flavours are thick and rich, and the scoops are also very generous.
Rants The only dislike I have for Brunetti is probably the fact that it gets quite crowded on weekends, and a little noisier with kids all over the place. Other than that, I think that this is a good stopover to have coffee and desserts at the same time.
Will I return again? I am sure I will, if I am in the vicinity the next time round.
