The Place The former Oz Specialty Coffee at Thomson V has relocated and reopened in a brand new spacious shophouse space along Upper Thomson Road recently, rebranded as Pacamara Boutique Coffee Roasters. The first thing that caught my eyes was the white washed look of the café, which gives it a very clean and minimalist look. The premise is spacious in terms of seating layout, with communal table as well as relatively more private corners. On display at the counter was some croissants and muffins and the coffee machine, while the kitchen is located right at the back.
The Food Even the menu is white. The choices for brunch and mains are quite diverse, from the classic brunch fares such as its American Breakfast ($20) to Truffle Benedict ($18) to Red Velvet Pancakes ($16).
I went along with the American Breakfast ($20), which came with multi grain toast, roasted tomatoes, mushroom, hashbrown, bacon, sausage and my choice of poached eggs. On my first bite of the runny poached eggs, it was already a heavenly experience for me. The poached eggs was done almost perfectly, which went so well with the truffle sauce that came with it that I thought it must be one of the best I had for a long while. This is a die die must try item.
As for the coffee, I heard that it was made from its own Pacamara blend. I went for a simple 7oz Café Latte ($5.50) which I thought was normal. It might have been the day I visited but the latte did not leave much impression on me.
Rants I need better luck for my coffee next time.
Will I return again? I like the ambience of Pacamara, which is the main reason I will return for. There is a high chance I will ditch the coffee on my next visit and have the Thai Iced Tea instead.
