I have heard so much Yays and Nays about Wild Honey that I decided that I had to try it to form my own judgment.

Tucked at a corner of Mandarin Gallery, we had to wait for about half an hour for a table when we reached at 12pm.

I fell in love with the comfortable decor of this place. The floral mismatched couches, the dim lighting and the chill-out music made me felt really lazy on a Saturday afternoon. In fact, Wild Honey reminded me of a random breakfast place at Manhattan, where I used to go to the counter and place my order, then bring my coffee/tea over to the window area to people watch.

Food-wise, the cafe adopts this rather refreshing approach of offering breakfasts from different countries. You can choose Swiss, Japanese, Tunisian, Scandinavian etc etc depending on your mood and cravings. Refer to the full menu here. If you are unsure, there are 2 sets of Ipod Touch at the counter where you can refer to the pictures.

I had the European breakfast ($18) with a cup of Hot Chocolate. The Hot Chocolate was nothing to shout about but the European breakfast, which consisted of Eggs Benedict with field mushrooms & ham on top of brioche bread, was delicious. The egg yolk oozed out and combined with the sweet brioche, while supplemented by the texture and taste of the savory mushrooms and ham. I love it! While the portion looks tiny, the set was actually quite filling. Undoubtedly, the price is on the slightly higher side but I didn’t mind paying for the quality of the food.

The Californian breakfast ($18) consisted of scrambled eggs, tofu, herbs, peppers on ciabatta. It was apparently very good too!

Verdict:

There is something for everyone. You can go for something exotic like the Yemen or Tunisian breakfast. For the sweet tooth, there are Belgium, Canadian and Sweet Morning. Pricing is on the higher side of the spectrum, as each person spends about $27 for breakfast and hot drink. It doesn’t help that the cafe doesn’t accept reservations and waiting time could be long. Nonetheless, I had a very comfortable and relaxed breakfast experience and wouldn’t mind paying Wild Honey another visit.

I bet some of you might ask if I prefer Spruce or Wild Honey. If I have the luxury of time and transport, I would go to Spruce anytime for its quieter location and more affordable offerings. Wild Honey, on the other hand, provide a homely respite from the crazy shopping or errand-running at Orchard.
