Hello Café Lovers!
Welcome to Cards and Cafés!
The café is decorated beautifully and has large windows that allow all the natural light to stream through, giving the café warmth and life. Left Field is a very popular café and you might have to wait for a table. I went with my friend Tiana on a Thursday morning and the café was pumping. So I would recommend getting there before 10am during the weekend to reduce your wait time. There are a number of parking spots along Koornang Road, so I’m sure you’ll easily find a spot.
FOOD & DRINKS
Left Field has a fantastic menu, with a number of delicious dishes to choose from. With dishes from cookies n cream donut sliders to the classic eggs benedict, I’m sure you’ll find something you’ll enjoy.
The following menu photos were taken in July 2017 and might have changed since.
I ordered a cappuccino and I really enjoyed it. It was nice and hot when it arrived at the table and it had a fantastic rich and creamy flavour.
Coffee rating: 4/5
Tiana ordered a hot chocolate and she loved it! She said that it was the perfect temperature for her and was excited to see that it came with a marshmallow!
Hot Chocolate rating: 5/5
For breaky, Tiana ordered the Eggs Your Way (fried) and she added bacon, avocado, goat’s cheese and tomato relish.
She said that there was a very generous serving of avocado, feta and tomato relish. She loved the combination of the avo and the feta and thought that the goat’s cheese brought a slight acidic taste to the dish. She said that the eggs were cooked well.
She was a little disappointed that the bacon portion was a lot smaller in comparison to her other extras, especially for the price that she paid.
I ordered the Breaky Board, which came with wild muesli, honey and vanilla yoghurt and smashed avo bruschetta, a poached egg, hummus, feta, dukkah and a glass of orange juice.
I love breaky boards, as I think they are the perfect dish for the indecisive or those who like a bit of sweet and savoury.
I loved the muesli and the fresh fruit that accompanied it. I just wished that there was slightly more yoghurt, as I prefer eating my muesli with yoghurt than having milk.
The poached egg was cooked perfectly and I thought that the hummus was great! It had a fantastic flavour and went perfectly with the smashed avo.
Finally, the orange juice was great!
I would definitely eat this dish again and I think that this is one of the better breaky boards that I’ve had.
ENVIRONMENT & SERVICE
The atmosphere at the café was ok, though the door kept opening and closing, which made it a bit cold. As there were a number of people waiting for a table, we felt almost rushed and the staff seemed keen to get us out to make room for the next group.
Most of the staff members were quite friendly and they tried to seat us as quickly as they could.
They have a number of tables inside the café and they also have quite a few tables outside, with most of these tables having outdoor heaters above them. Left Field also kindly gives their outdoor customers blankets to keep their legs warm from the icy wind.
