This month's birthday celebation was at Essential Brew, a cosy 2-storey cafe at 269 Holland Ave (Holland Village) Singapore 278990.
As the name suggests, it is a place to have a cup of tea with friends on a lazy afternoon or chill-out after work.
Downstairs, there is a choice of sitting on a chair or on the parquet floors... for upstairs, you only have 1 choice and that is - sit on the floor with low tables. If you are lucky, you will get a window seat and you get to enjoy the busy night view of Holland Road.
Set lunch @ Essential Brew is reasonably priced starting from $9.95 which includes a soup, main and tea. I had the Tangy Breaded Dory ($11.95) which came with corn soup (I think) and I had lavander tea.
While the food quality was alright, they ought to improve their service level to handle large group. For 18 of us, some only got their food while others already finished their share... Hmm....
