My first experience with Teadot was at the former Bugis Iluma. At a time when coffee cafes were starting to gain momentum, the local start-up became one of the first modern tea cafés in Singapore.

For fans who wondered where they went to, the tea café have found home at the courtyard of Westgate, continuing to serve great-tasting tea drinks. Teadot now have an expanded menu which includes all-day brunch items, coffee, and cakes, some of which are tea-infused.

Flipping through the menu, I was pleasantly surprised at the affordability of the breakfast items – Smoked Duck with Cranberry ($13.95), Eggs Benedict ($14.95), Swiss Rosti with Salmon ($15.95), Bangers & Mash ($12.95), Scrambled Eggs Special ($14.95), and Chicken Delight ($15.05), all without additional service charge and GST.

Wait till you see the portions. The first thing I noticed in the All-Day Breakfast ($17.95) was the huge huge Portobello mushroom, but that did not hide the other goodies of scrambled eggs placed on soft brioche toast, German bratwurst, turkey bacon, accompanied with salad and cherry tomatoes.

My favourite items on the plate were unarguably the all-fatty-and-juicy-sausage, and deep yellow creamy eggs. Two can share this.

Office workers who do not want something too heavy for lunch can consider the healthier tasting Caesar Salad ($10.95) – fresh greens topped with topped with roast chicken, croutons and parmesan cheese, drizzled with house dressing made of olive oil, egg yolks, garlic, Dijon mustard and anchovies.

To let you have an indication of the generosity, I got a friend to hold up the bowl. My pet peeve with many salads around is the serving size. This should defray concerns and fill up a hungry executive.

Dessert wise, some of their cakes are tea-infused, such as the milky Earl Grey Latte Mousse Cake ($6.90) being a fan-favourite since its earlier days.

For other recommendations, I thought that the zesty Lemon Meringue Tart ($4.80) had a pleasing balance between being tangy and sweet, further enhanced with a thin layer of dark chocolate.

If not, the tall slice of vibrant coloured Dark Chocolate Rainbow Cake ($8.50) should be a hit on your instagram gallery.

Between the Royal Earl Grey Latte ($6.80) and Organic Matcha Latte ($6.80) that I had, the rich and creamy earl grey drink had a delicateness that makes it a fitting drink to wind down a busy afternoon. The later had more bitter than usual aftertaste that might need some getting used to.

For a cool drink to beat the clammy Singapore weather, the dreamy-looking tri-layered Lollipop Earl Grey ($6.50) added with butterscotch may do wonders.

What I sense about Teadot is in its sincerity. It may not have the marketing budget like bigger international brands, or the cool vibes like some indie cafes, but they take pride in items they serve in-store.

  37. From all the appetizing food photos, the Organic Matcha Latte with the adorable ‘tea-art’ caught my attention.
    I normally prefer my drinks to be not so sweet, so as not to overpower or ‘drown’ the taste of the yummy food that I am having. Hence, this seems a suitable choice for me!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  44. The zesty Lemon Meringue Tart because it is tangy and sweet, further enhanced with a thin layer of dark chocolate.

  45. I love tea and desserts, and Teadot seems to have them all, plus many extra!
    But if I have to choose one favourite, the Lemon Meringue Tart certainly appeals to me. I love that refreshing lemon zest, but what entices me most is the Meringue cream with layer of chocolate, it’s such a visual delight as if a rage of desire burning inside me, leaving me fascinating about its lemony blend. Bet I can have a few of that!

  46. I'd love to try the Dark Chocolate Rainbow Cake because it has chocolates and pretty colors! Looks delicious! 😀

  47. I will love to have the Dark Chocolate Rainbow Cake which will definitely bring a smile to my little princess. I’m sure she will enjoy the rainbow cake not just the looks of it but the taste and every moment with it.

  48. I really enjoyed the Lemon Meringue Tart and is probably my favorite item from teadot thus far! It had a nice combination of the zesty lemon and chocolate hidden inside the rut. I was a little surprised by the chocolate as I don't really see it in lemon meringue tarts but the two accompanied each other well and I really like it! I also like the Match latte. It had a nice latte art when served and the matcha was not too sweet nor bitter. It was comforting and satisfying to the matcha lover, me. 😀

  49. Lemon Meringue Tart! I have never tried it before & I want to try! *-* just by looking from your video of tea box, it looks refreshing, sweet & yummylici

  50. My favourites: Swiss Rosti with Salmon, Lemon Meringue Tart, all to go down with a Chai Tea Latte or Lavender Earl Grey when I want something chill in our hot weather!

  51. I would love to try the Lemon Meringue Tart and Lollipop Earl Grey… The contrasting sweet and sour/bitter taste of the lemon in both the tart and the drink should compliment each other well… I love the 先苦后甜 bittersweet sense on my palate.

  52. I love tea and the selection of hot teas from Teadot is my favourite. They offer special and unique tea which i can't seemed to find it elsewhere yet. Hope to try all the hot tea they offer! So far I only tried Royal Early Grey Latte and French Rose Tea and i'm loving it. A pot of tea from teadot and the soothing music is perfect to spend the afternoon there. 🙂

  53. All-Day Breakfast ! <3
    Because all the food item are my favorites!
    And I have yet to try Teadot 🙁
    hope to win!
    Liked and shared on facebook 🙂

  54. The priority dish will be Dark Chocolate Rainbow Cake as it look unique. The other dishes looks tantalising so I hope to have a chance to try them as well.

  55. Without a doubt, my favourite item from TeaDot is the Dark Chocolate Rainbow Cake. Tried the cake before and there is something unique and rich about the layers of cake. The cake itself is light and fluffy and the layer of chocolate complements the cake perfectly. Excellent taste and it tastes as good as it looks! Lots of effort goes into baking those individual coloured layers and it does justice to the bakers and it is a gem at teadot.

  56. Swiss rosti with salmon. Rosti alone is a little bland and oily, but the salmon blends into it perfectly with a slew of health benefits like omega 3, protein, vitamin D, etc. That’s wholesome goodness!

  57. Hi Daniel's Food Diary 🙂 I really love the sound of Swiss Rosti with Salmon, I have tried Teadot's Rainbow Cake and it was superb! Their Green Tea Latte, Organic Matcha Latte are fabulous too. I never knew they actually sell mains in their menu, so the vouchers would be a great National Day gift for me to tuck in! 🙂

  59. I love the rainbow cake! Its hard to find a rainbow cake that taste well! Its even harder to find a rainbow cake that is coated with dark chocolate and sprinkle with rainbow sprinkles! =)

  60. I love the rainbow cake! Its hard to find a rainbow cake that taste well! Its even harder to find a rainbow cake that is coated with dark chocolate and sprinkle with rainbow sprinkles! =)

  61. Sadly the Westgate outlet doesn't sell rainbow cakes anymore! They said they changed cake vendor. 🙁 it was probably the best rainbow cake I had because the dark chocolate ganache was awesome and non-creamy nor greasy.
