I had brunch at Spruce a couple of weeks ago with my family on a public holiday. We found out that they actually have a different brunch menu for public holidays (and for weekends as well).
There’s a carpark that customers of Spruce can park at, and the cafe is a short walk away from that carpark (it’s open-air, so hope it doesn’t rain while you’re there!).
Kiddy play area at the yard of the cafe. Quite a few kids were enjoying bouncing on the bouncy castle while we were there. :p
There’s also a children’s playground with a slide on the grounds of the cafe. It seems that Spruce is really very kid-friendly! I also noticed that families with kids were provided with “kid-proof” plastic utensils, so nothing would be broken by playful kids. 😉
The above pics show the menu available on that day.
I got a flat white (S$6++), which was ok taste-wise.The latte art wasn’t fantastic, but that’s ok, most places don’t have fantastic latte art anyway. Notice however the presentation of the flat white.. I could hardly believe they served it with a disposable stirrer.. I’m quite sure that a simple metal teaspoon isn’t that difficult to procure..
Spruce eggs benny (S$15++) was ok. The eggs benny with hollandaise sauce were tasty enough, and the salsa vegetables were quite good too. The waffle wasn’t that great though, and I think they should serve it with a french toast or something else other than waffles.
Spruce signature burger (S$18++) was a solid offering. The fries were average, but the burger was good. The slightly melted cheese and the thick patty were satisfying. 🙂
Crab cake benny (S$25++) looked rather sad when it arrived. However it did taste good when eaten, so I suppose that worked out well! :p
Spruce big brekkie (S$19++) was quite good. The sausage, bacon and mushrooms were tasty, and the scrambled eggs were rather good too. The roasted potato was rather disappointing though, and tasted rather starchy and dry.
The coffee isn’t fantastic, and the food has some hits and misses in my opinion. BUT… It has its own bouncy castle!!! What else is there to say? :p I think that parents would love this cafe, simply because they can let their kids play at the bouncy castle and/or playground, while they have a meal in peace. I myself probably wouldn’t go all the way there just for brunch though.
