The Coffee Academics Singapore

Hong Kong’s very own The Coffee Academics (TCA) has finally opened their flagship cafe in Singapore! Being big fans of Hong Kong food, we just had to check The Coffee Academics Singapore out. Located at Scotts Square-Orchard, the cafe was very easy to find. Once there, we were greeted by a very enthusiastic team of staff – which is of course a sign of good service.

Once seated, we looked around the store and we were impressed by the brew bar and the barrister behind it. You can see the passion in her as she carefully brewed each cup of coffee and took it upon herself to ensure that the taste was right before serving it. We wonder about her sleeping habits given the amount of coffee that she is tasting each day.

Okinawa – Cafe Latte with Dark Brown Sugar

Coffee was good though the food selection was pretty limited. Perhaps we had ordered the wrong dish, but based on what we had, I’d suggest to come here for their coffee and desserts and your meal elsewhere.

Scrambled Eggs with Crayfish

Creamy scrambled eggs with crayfish and caviar, drizzled with beurre noisette (warm butter sauce). Served with sourdough bread.

Price: $23

Was a pretty interesting combination. Eggs were truly creamy and fluffy, but the crayfish tasted pretty bland. Found the price on the steeper side given that the dish wasn’t exactly mind-blowing.

Academics Pancake Tower with vanilla bean ice-cream

Academics Pancake Tower with berry sorbet

Layered pancakes topped with mixed berries and blueberry coulis (healthy fruit sauce), served with vanilla bean ice cream and whipped cream.

Price: $19

Really enjoyed the warm, buttery and sweet fluffy pancakes. For those of you who love the souffle pancakes from Hoshino Coffee, this is the alternative place to go! The original Berry Sorbet ran out, so we settled for vanilla bean ice cream instead, which worked well!

We will definitely be back to try out their recommended Berry Sorbet.

Here are some other cafes worth a visit this 2016.

We have yet to try the churros at TCA, but we know there’s a great place in the area that serves delicious churros. If you aren’t too full from the meal, do take a walk down to Ion and grab a churro from Mr Churro Singapore!
