This was another place that I had not visited in a while and they too serve water in glasses. The menu had changed since. Gone are some of the salads which I had tried before. Today, I decided to try their pasta which turned out to be a little too rich. It was also too pricey. My friend had a hearty meal of their All Day Breakfast meals which she was completely satisfied with. They still had a 10% discount for POSB and DBS cards which made the meal less expensive.
The menu had been simplified which seems to be a recent trend across restaurants in Singapore nowadays. Inevitably, some things which I liked before are no longer on the menu. Oh well, at least they retained their food quality. Some restaurants are worse in that they increase their price and compromise on quality. For my earlier post on the place, go here.
It’s a competitive environment out there but Robert Timms has kept up their food quality and service. Their range of cakes has also increased, making this more of an afternoon tea place as well.
Now if only I can get them to optimise their website for iphone search…

This is a nice cosy place along East Coast Road. We came here for dessert after dinner. The ambience and delightful cakes and hot drinks make for nice long conversations on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
I especially liked that they had rich cheesecake as well as lighter cakes like muffins.
Lovely dried flowers at the tables
cranberry muffin & Americano coffee
black & white nutella cake

I came again a second time to try other dishes. Today it was the organic spinach with garlic. Their vegetables are the draw for me.
We tried their braised pork ribs as well. They tasted slightly different to what we were used to. The pork itself was fine but the sauce was not what we normally had.
Since this visit was so near the earlier one, the manager started recognising me. This reminded me of my childhood where I grew up patronising certain zi char places frequently until we were on sir- as opposed to firstname basis. My family would eat at those places until they relocated. Perhaps this place would become one of those places on my list, even if it’s only for their organic vegetables which are worth returning for. This is the kind of place to bring a larger group of people to, so we can try more dishes. I might just organise one.
