Review – Chock Full of Beans

We were in the area for a staycation and decided to stop by as we’ve heard so much about it.

The cafe is really easy to find, facing the main road and right at the end of the whole row of shops. Its ambience is really nice and warm. It is a smallish cafe with some outdoor seating.

I noticed they have a couple of menus. The menu I’ve seen on others’ website (the weekend one) is very different from the one we had that day as it was a Friday. There are also some items only available for dinner after 6pm. The staff was cordial enough but not entirely helpful. Thankfully as it was only 3pm on a Friday, there were a number of empty seats and we could be seated immediately. We walked past during the weekend and there was a queue even at odd times of the day.

What we ordered:

Smoked Salmon, Cheese, Egg on Toast ($10) – I’m not sure why we ordered this. It is a tad expensive for the four small pieces of toast we were getting but I guess I was in the mood for some light bites. It tasted fine, nothing special though. The bread was well toasted and I like the combination.

Penne with Salmon ($15) – This was really quite nice. The penne was al dente and the sauce used was not too thick. Don’t expect much salmon though.

Iced Hazelnut Latte ($6.50) / Iced Mocha ($6.50) – We ordered iced coffee because only the iced coffee came with 3D art and that was what we were there for! The staff warned us that it might take at least 30min for them to prepare our drinks but as there weren’t many people that day, the drinks came in 15min which was acceptable. Be prepared to wait if you go on a weekend! The drinks tastes fine just that you might not feel like drinking them after admiring the 3D art.photo 1 (1)photo 2 (1)

So we spent about $40 for the both of us. I might go back if I’m in the area but definitely not travel all the way to Changi Village for this.
