This was our fourth visit to Five & Dime, after 3 unsuccessful ones (the kitchen was closed, they were closed for cny function, full house...) X didn't want to come back anymore HAHA what a petty little kid. This time round, we made a reservation 2 days in advance for brunch on Sunday! All prepared haha.
Located along River Valley Road, Five & Dime is eye-catching and easy to spot!
Parking is available right behind the eatery
Five & Dime is not big but it's spacious enough.
You wouldn't feel like you're too close to the table next to you
Salty Caramel Cupcake- $4
I really liked it! It was sweet and really quite salty haha. Great mixture of flavours.
The salty caramel lies on top of the cake base which is yummy on its own.
Hot chocolate - $6
The hot chocolate arrived shortly after we placed ours orders but it was a little disappointing as it was not warm/hot enough. Taste wise, it was quite good!
Corned beef hash- $16
The toast was crisp and it was a pure, simple delight dipping it in the runny eggyolk.
The potato was a little spicy but it went well with the bacon and fragrant beef.
The portion was really generous.
Underneath the eggs was yummy corned beef hash, yummy corned beef hash and more yummy corned beef hash.
I was really full even though I didn't finish everything!
Eggs Benny -$16
X loved it! And so did I.
The seared beef which was soft and delectable, together with the poached eggs which were cooked to PERFECTION, and hollandaise sauce which was flavourful but not overwhelming on the croissant-like soft bread, stole X's heart. This was in really simple terms, heavenly.
X doesnt usually eat rockets but he cleaned the rockets up as he said they were drizzled in a really delicious sauce. The fruit salad which consists of grapes, strawberries, kiwi, and bananas were also sitting in a unique dressing that made them so palatable that X ate two bowls of them hahaha.
The eggs ben that we get at other eateries usually only feature 2 poached eggs and ham on english muffins. They were more often, than not, not filling. Five & Dime's Egg Benny comes with a side of spicy potato and ham, salad and fruit salad and this dish is exremely filling!
Cute toilet sign
We really liked Five & Dime! The food is really awesome, the ambience is nice and we appreciate the amount of thought and effort that has been placed into the decoration and setting! X liked the unique cutlery that they have and how they have colourful cups and fruit salad bowls to add a dash of colour and liveliness. The service staff were attentive and pretty efficient. Omg I really want to have their Eggs Benny now. PERFECT.POACHED.EGGS. They are to die for.
