Little Farms Café at Valley Point Shopping Centre looks set to become an expat-favourite.
Despite River Valley being near town, peppered with condominiums and popular with the expat community, there aren’t THAT many cafés and brunch places in this district.
Not counting Starbucks.
Both Brez’n and Croute by Hummerstons which were previously in at Valley Point, had ended operations.
Little Farms has gained a little reputation since opening in 2016. It is known to offer fresh produce, meats, seafood, dairy, and groceries, source directly from suppliers in Australia and Europe.
You know, the place to get your organic and ethical stuff.
Therefore, the all-day breakfast and brunch menu served from 7:30am to 5:00pm, is expectedly more costly than the average café.
Offerings include Toast & Butter ($8), Granola & Fresh Fruit ($12), Smashed Avocado ($15), Nutty Banana Toast ($7), Buttermilk Pancakes ($17), Pasta of the Day ($18) and Fish of The Day ($22).
I typically order the Big Breakfast ($20) as it would contain a bit of everything.
Yes, it was pricy but I thought that every item on that plate – from the juicy fat pork and fennel sausage, vine tomatoes, avocado, bacon, to eggs, just tasted better than the average brunch place in Singapore. (Well, the scrambled eggs could have been milkier.)
I particularly enjoyed the avocadoes which were rich and creamy – the real stuff. Unfortunately, some other cafes in Singapore use avocadoes from the packet, so freshness would be compromised.
Making smashed avocadoes is not rocket-science, and for here, it really boils down to the fresh produce used.
I also had the Nutty Banana Toast ($7) – not the cheapest around. The first thought to anyone could be, ”I could easily assemble this at home at a fraction of the price”.
With that said, the peanut butter was just deliciously textured, lightly chunky, made of quality peanuts. So much so that I wanted to buy some home to make my own (until I stopped myself because I won’t be able to finish it before expiry date.)
Allpress Espresso coffees are served, roasted using the Allpress Hot Air Roast Method. This method elevates natural sweetness to achieve a smooth taste, and reduces the burnt taste that traditional roasting may cause.
