Food Review: Oriole Cafe & Bar

The Place I was racking my brains over a decent cafe for a Sunday brunch in Somerset area and the first to come to my mind is Oriole Cafe. It’s convenient location just at the doorstep of 313 Somerset is a big plus, but what really draws me back is the quality coffee here, all coffee beans self-roasted. I also take comfort that the coffee can’t be any bad, given that it is made from award winning Baristas.
IMG_1357The Food It is a shame that I have not tried the Brunch here at Oriole till today. My favourite brunch items have always been either the Eggs Benedict or the full English Breakfast, which I have decided to go with the former. I am on a quest to hunt for the best Eggs Benny in town, after trying some really good ones from Wild Honey and Jones the Grocer.
IMG_1360 IMG_1365Firstly, a Cafe Latte ($5.50) to kickstart my Sunday brunch. The coffee taste is very smooth, and the amount of milk used is just right.
IMG_1383My Salmon Benedict ($19) lived up to my expectations. It is definitely not the best Eggs Benedict I have tried, but somehow I was rather satisfied with it still. I think the hollandaise sauce can be improved on, apart from that I like the runny-ness of the eggs as well as the smoked salmon.
IMG_1375For a safer option, the full English Breakfast ($20) is hard to go wrong. The toast is especially tasty, not to mention the huge portions as well.

Will I return again? Anytime for a good cuppa coffee.
