Fans who were sad due to Stateland Café’s ‘closure’ need not be too disappointed, as the team has reopened with a “Brotherbird Coffeehouse” concept.

The location is the same at 32 Bali Lane, and this is an extension of the previous Brother Bird which was popular for its softserve, donuts, and hybrid mochi croissants.

The owners thought that as Stateland Cafe was established 7 years ago, it would be appropriate time for a revamp.

It is intended to branch out into two different concepts – a coffeehouse serving inexpensive coffee and croissants; and brunch and comfort food dining place.

In case you are wondering why is it call Brother Bird, one of the Stateland Café’s owners is nicknamed “bird” because he likes eating granola.

The lower level contained an industrial-grey minimalist look (reminding me of Lucid at Hamilton Road) of two sections – the pastry counter and the coffee side, with a small seating area.

The display contained more than 10 different types of pastries.

There are basically four different groups you can expect – Twice-baked croissant, the regular croissants (some pumped with fillings), chocolate series, and Danish pastries.

Brother Bird continues to introduce seasonal bakes, such as the current Hae Bee Hiam & Cheese Danish ($5), “Tang Yuan” Pastry ($5) with coconut mochi and adzuki bean, “Nian Gao” & Yam ($5) with yam fillings, Mandarin Orange Meringue Croissant ($4), and Mango Sticky Rice ($5) with fresh mango fillings, coconut mochi in a croissant topped with coconut flakes.

If you are heading for the staples, available are Earl Grey Tea Croissant ($5), Churros Croissant ($4), and Double Chocolate Roll ($4) topped with cocoa powder.

The more adventurous should try the twice-baked croissant such as the “Nian Gao”, to experience the lightly-crisp exterior which contrasts with the slightly sticky and chewy mochi slab in the middle.

The inside is made with a glutinous rice flour mix, while the pastry takes a long process of 12 layer folding to create a more flaky texture.

I had the Matcha Chocolate Roll ($4.00) and felt it had a rather crunchy-crispy outer layer, while the inside was somewhat bread-like.

While the rich-chocolate flavour was appealing, I wished it was overall more fluffy in the middle for a better contrast.

As for the drinks menu, you get the usual coffee choices ($3.50 – $4.50), along with Uji Matcha Latte ($5), Tea ($5) and Cold Press Juices ($7).

Coffee beans are sourced from 2 Degree North, with raspberry and chocolaty notes.

One thing I noted that was coffee is considered comparatively affordable here, with a White priced at $4.50.
