There are café food which come with a higher price tag, but customers are willing to pay this additional premium. Think $28 for a Big Breakfast Aussie-style plate.

One example is Little Farms Market & Café, which has launched its 6th location at Tanglin Mall.

It started as a grocer at Valley Point providing fresh assortment of groceries, meats, dairy, seafood and plant-based alternatives procured from ethical and traceable sources.

Very popular with the expat community, especially when the café provides plenty of vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free options.

This whole flagship space is larger than the others at 6,800 square feet, incorporating an all-day dining café, wholefoods store, a delicious, and a live artisanal bakery by Starter Lab.

For the uninitiated, Starter Lab originated from Bali and known to serve the “Gucci of Bread”.

The all-day dining café which seats up to 75 diners would be what many describe as “instagrammable” with natural daylight, hanging foliage and light-coloured tables made from recycled materials.

On the breakfast menu include the best-selling Avocado Smash on Classic Sourdough ($21), Eggs Ben on Toasted Croissant ($24), Wholemeal Hotcake ($22), Homemade Granola Bowl ($17), to Lox Sourdough Bagel ($19).

I must say that the mashed avocado was more creamy and luxurious than most of the average avo-toasts around.

For something more substantial, there is the Aussie Big Breakfast ($28) with 2 barossa eggs, beans, portobello shrooms, heirloom tomato, pork sausage, bacon and classic sourdough.

There is also a vegan and keto option.

Wholesome salads exclusive to the Tanglin Mall outlet include the Spice-charred Cauliflower ($21) and Avo, Quinoa & Feta Bowl ($22) which can provide the ultimate nourishment.

Moving on to the dinner menu, there is the Sustainably Farmed Fish & Chips ($30), New Zealand Akaora Salmon ($34), Braised Ox Cheek & Mushroom Pappardelle ($28), and Bostock’s Organic Chicken Breast ($26) with root veggies, pearl barley risotto, feta and kale.

I was quite curious about the partnership with Starter Lab, though viennoiserie and cakes seem to be priced much higher as well.

A Pain Au Croissant was priced at $5.50, while a Lemon Meringue Croissant Deluxe was $10.50.

While the croissant was moderately crispy, I thought it would do with more chocolate within for a more ‘sensational’ bite.

All the cakes were $10 and above, including Yoghurt Mousse Dome ($10), Muscovado Carrot Cake ($12), Comte Burnt Cheese ($16), Pistachio Raspberry Rose ($15), and Chocolate Overload ($16).

The Yoghurt Mousse Dome ($10) which reminded me of another bakery-café at Joo Chiat, and was pretty-looking. Thankfully it was refreshing, light and smooth, and tasted as good as it looked.
