d' Good Café at Holland Village

OpenRice Singapore invited me for a food tasting at d' Good Café last Tuesday night. The session was scheduled to start at 7pm but I knocked off from work at 6pm and Holland V is just a stone throw away from my workplace so I came super early.

Being the earliest bird, I took the opportunity to capture images for this post. I looooove how they painted (or is it a sticker?) the stairway to the  café with their signature coffee creations and "Your Best Cup of Coffee of the Day Begins Here" statement! Very creative.

Let me tour you around the rest of the place...

1st stop: THE BAR

As you can see, there are lots of pretty stuff at the coffee bar. Coffee enthusiasts have the option of sitting at the bar and chit-chat with the baristas as they wait for their order or as they sip and savour their coffee.

2nd stop: The Lawn

This is my favourite spot at d' Good Café. You should know by now how hopeless romantic I am. Haha. I told the hubby I will bring him here one day and have some intimate couple time just watching the beautiful world go by. The glass window provides a relaxing garden view as you enjoy the swing seats. Perfect spot for lovers or bestfriends.

3rd stop: The Attic

The Attic is highly recommended for costumers with young children. It is a child-friendly space with bean bags, rocking horses, high chairs, kiddie chairs and blocks that can be used both as a table or a chair.

4th stop: The Balcony 

If you are fond of dining alfresco, opt for The Balcony which is located at the rooftop. The spot with the windmill is very romantic especially at night. It is a great place to just chillax. 

Now that I'm done touring you around virtually, let's get to the food business!

I have stopped drinking coffee lessened my caffeine intake for a few years now but once in a while I still indulge on good coffee. *Crossing my fingers the hubby will not read this post, haha.

Speaking of good coffee, nothing beats freshly blended or brewed coffee. Just too bad the invite is at night time. I could have indulge in one of their espresso, latte, coffee based frappe,  or cappuccino. I try to have my coffee intake latest by 3pm, otherwise I won't be able to sleep.

I opted for a cream based choco chip cream frappe. I wasn't the only one who ordered cream based frappe though, so I felt less embarrassed. Hehe

Here's what we had for dinner:

1) Homemade English Breakfast (from All-Day Breakfast Menu)

Toasted Brioche, baked tomato with basil, English baked beans, sauteed mushrooms, back bacon, English Cumberland sausage, and scrambled eggs. There is not much to be excited about the bacon but the sauteed mushroom and the perfectly toasted brioche is really good.

2) Eggs Benedict (from All-Day Breakfast Menu)

Two poached eggs nestled on English muffins and bacons, drizzled with Hollandaise sauce and served with salad. The Hollandaise sauce gave a mild sour but refreshing taste to the poached eggs.

3) Fresh Sea Prawn Aglio Olio (from the Main Menu)

Linguine and prawns stir-fried in olive oil, garlic and chilli padi. It is not too spicy and the fresh prawns are worth devouring.

4) Japanese Chicken Curry (from the Main Menu)

Fresh Chicken, potatoes, carrots and onions cooked in mild and fragrant Japanese curry sauce. It is served with Japanese rice. I am not a fan of curry but the mild Japanese curry sauce is apt to my liking.

For dessert, we had d' Good Triplet Cheesecake with Macaroon and d' Good Mapple Seasalt Cheesecake.

There's no other great way to end a dinner than a satisfying and yummylicious dessert! I prefer the Triplet Cheesecake than the latter.

If you intend to go at the d' Good Café just for a cup of coffee and a cake, fret not because they have a wide variety of coffee and pastries to offer from their menu.
