Toby's Estate, Robertson Quay

Toby's Estate would be a familiar name to many Australians and just the mere mention conjurs images of smooth as silk liquid gold for me.

When I discovered that Toby's Estate would be opening it's first Singapore branch close to where I live, I knew that I would have to hotfoot it down there soon after opening and sample it's wares.  I love me some coffee, and especially good coffee, and I was dreaming of sitting serenely at a table (sans BuBba), lifting up the cup, inhaling in the delicious coffee aroma and taking a long, blissful sip of Toby's Estate.  Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...  Heaven.

In reality, the scene played out a bit differently.  BuBba was with me so we perched ourselves at one end of a long communal table inside and I ordered a skinny flat white and a croissant for the little fella.  More substantial food was not available yet but I was informed that a new menu would be available in a week or so, so I'm guessing this week or next.

After receiving my coffee, I set BuBba up to make a ginormous mess with his croissant and took my first, much anticipated sip of coffee.  Delicious but.... not hot... just warm.

I was a little disappointed with the temperature of the coffee but I guess every new joint has it's teething issues when it's just opened (I went on it's second day of opening).  I also observed a couple of other orders getting mixed up and given that the cafe wasn't at full capacity, I hope they can iron out these service issues quickly.

Having said all of the above, I will be back because I want to try their new menu and I think everyone deserves a second chance.  

I just love a good (Australian owned) coffee too much.

  1. Coffee in Asia is usually poor so I'm glad there is a good coffee house in Singapore. I hope they sort out the teething issues soon.

    And it's good to hear from you. BuBba must be getting big! Hope you're all well.

  2. It's so fabulous to see more great coffee in Singapore!
