Food Review: C Cafe At Joo Chiat, Katong | How Does Sipping Coffee And Watching Magic Tricks Sound?

The Place Located right beside Homeground Coffee Roasters, the one week old C Cafe is more than just a game of cards. The contemporary looking cafe has some tricks up their sleeves, and you can feel that energy from the team whom co-founders are magic enthusiasts. In terms of seating capacity, it is quite decent for a cafe and there is a mix of bar height tables beside the entrance if you are alone, along with regular wooden tables for small groups.

The Food The menu is a mix of toasts, avocado toast, waffle, salad and a couple of sides like spam fries and truffle fries. I managed to try a toast for breakfast, the Tasty Toasties which come in chicken, leg ham or smoked salmon. I had the Chicken (S$16) toasty, where the chicken breast meat is sandwiched in the crispy sourdough toast.

The toast is spread with home-made herb, melted cheddar and mozzarella cheese. Overall, the flavour is not too bad and is a simple breakfast fix to enjoy.

Coffee wise, I managed to try both the Long Black (S$6/8oz) and Flat White (S$6.50/8oz). In general, I prefer my coffee to have a stronger punch which seems to be lacking here. Hopefully, the barista will slowly get the groove around it.

Rants While the magic element of the cafe injects a strong character, it is also not a very intuitive complement to the cafe concept for me.

Will I Return Again? It is definitely good to see competition in the cafe scene in the buzzing Katong enclave, and the addition of C Cafe will give Homeground Coffee Roasters a run for their money for sure. The service is warm and friendly during our visit, though I do feel that it can also be toned down a little.
