Brunch @ The Hideout // CLOSED

October 27, 2014 in European (cafe) by thywhaleliciousfay

It was by sheer chance that I was heading down to the East. And with a quick text, I managed to get my girlfriend (who’s stationed in the East) to join me for a quick tea break! =)

We came on a weekday late afternoon. It being a weekday, it was no surprise that the café was a little quiet. Occupying a corner unit, The Hideout is pretty spacious and has sufficient tables and chairs to sit 20 or more people. And with a clever use of an almost full-height mirror installed along one span, the café looks bigger than it already is.

And from the menu, we ordered:-

1) Cake set (+ $3 for coffee) comprised of:-

(A) Red velvet lava cake (above) – We paid $3 more (on top of the cake price) to get a cup of coffee. If not, cake alone cost $6.50, or $8.90 with ice cream. We chose dark chocolate for our ice cream flavour. This was not too bad. And instead of the usual chocolate within the lava cake, The Hideout used white chocolate ganache.

(B) Latte (above) – Otherwise $4.80 if ordered a-la carte.

2) Salted caramel overload, $12.90 (above) – With salted caramel ice cream, biscuit and sauce. This was indeed an overload. A perfect choice for salted caramel lovers! If not, one can also order buttermilk waffle with choice of flavour for one’s ice cream. Ice cream was thick and smooth while waffle was crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. However, I thought the waffle left a slight weird aftertaste, although my girlfriend did not taste anything funny.

With 2 cafes located just a block away within the Cassia Crescent estate, it’s inevitable that I would compare the two against each other. In terms of waffle, I would prefer the other. However, The Hideout attempts to be a one-stop-for-all by offering ice cream (Read fellow blogger MyFoodSirens‘s review on their ice cream) and savoury food like pasta and pizza.

Thus, if one prefers to have everything at a place, The Hideout will be the answer.
