Marine Parade and the former Big Splash centre continue to gather reinforcements for their charge to be taken very seriously among the upper ranks of Singapore’s food establishment. LAAF Coffee and Bistro on East Coast Road is the new flagship of the cafe armada in that assault, bringing a superb menu of Australian-style cafe fare – and an impressive drinks menu – that must soon make it a regular in conversations about the city’s best. The swathe is wide, from gorgeous vegetarian pastas or hearty meaty mains to gourmet side bites, internationally inspired nibbles and dainty desserts, and it is all exquisite. Things are lovingly made in house, from scratch, every day, in small batches to ensure freshness and quality, and LAAF’s persistence in the search for quality extends to their beautiful coffees, extracted skilfully by well trained baristas from a signature blend of Brazilian and Ethiopian beans roasted for LAAF by Oriole coffee roasters.
Enjoyed it very much! And the service is pretty excellent too. Only the location is a little cramped and so you have to reserve to enjoy a seat.
Food is excellent, service is really good. In particular, the pork chop, aglio olio, fish and chips and the Haianese Chicken were really good. Reasonably priced too!
Great service. Although not all menu items were available, the staff shared on the alternative options. Provided plates as we were sharing without being asked. They also acceded to our requests.
