It's finally the 7th consecutive post on breakfast/brunch hangouts! :D
This is gonna be a pretty short one since I haven't been out brunching for months. I dug this out somewhere from my 'pile' of photos because I like this cafe's atmosphere and layout. Sadly, I do not have many pictures showing you the cafe's interior/exterior. Actually, I've only got this:
This place is none other than Ponycat.
If you've been to New Farm to dine, you'll realise that this little suburb has a lot of food to offer. A bit of Googling will also inform you that most of the restaurants and cafes here have received positive reviews and feedback. Since we haven't been to Ponycat before, my friends and I decided to brunch here.
Ponycat is one of the smaller brunch cafes I've ever been. Their furnitures are not exactly spacious, so when I first stepped in, I didn't think the place was actually pretty small. Quite smart of them. The tables are however perfect for coffee. It is just a tad tricky for dining.
Another smart feature Ponycat had was the riddance of printed menus. Since the cafe does not have much space to play around with, printed menus will only clutter the area, right? So the cafe had their menu written on a huge chalkboard framing the counter, which I thought was really interesting. At first you'll find it weird staring at the counter area, but it becomes handy when you wish to order more while eating. The chalkboard gives the cafe a character as well.
I know I can't do justice to this cafe because I don't have enough photos, but you'll like it here if you're into artsy mural and simple wood furniture. (;
Roasted Field Mushrooms. This is so worth every cent and dollar. The mushrooms were huge and full of flavour. They were pretty generous with the feta too! (:
Smoked Salmon. It didn't just look generous, it was extremely filling! I like how they had balsamic glaze which complemented the dish, and the scrambled egg was light and creamy. I love eggs like that! I can't make mine stay intact while being moist when I cooked. ): This is skill.
Chorizo Omelette. I think the presentation was really cute. And the amount of rockets is crazy. Balsamic glaze, huge omelette, sourdough, and crazy amount of rockets - it was hard to finish this much haha!
We did order drinks but I guess I did not take any shots. We didn't like their chai latte. Too milky and diluted. Pretty disappointing. I didn't have that bad of an impression for their coffee though, so, go ahead! (;
