Haha X and I decided to head to Symmetry for brunch one Sunday afternoon. We had a pretty hard time finding a parking lot as the whole area was very crowded and all the lots were taken. So we parked opposite the main road beside a field.
It's a good thing that we checked the address of the place before we came here, or we'd have totally missed Symmetry because there isn't a signboard
We were greeted warmly by them haha
A cafe with a rustic charm. Totally love the brick walls and big windows.
A modern touch to a cottage-feel
Old school name tag thingy
Iced Latte - $5.50
The coffee was fragrant and good!
Cute bottle of sugar syrup!
Affogato - $6
Fragrant coffee paired with a scoop of yummy vanilla icecream. Definitely one of the nicer affogatos around!
I wanted to get the croissant with smoked salmon and scrambled eggs but decided to try their Eggs Benedict instead.
Eggs Benedict - $20
Poached eggs, aged cheddar, smoked bacon, onion hollandaise
The eggs were not very well prepared. They were more like soft boiled eggs than poached eggs. The egg white was too runny. I really liked the sweetness of the caramelized onions. The sweet onions with the hollandaise kind of masked the taste of the other ingredients though. Also, the presence of aged cheddar made the dish more tasty but I kinda got quite sick of it towards the end. The dish comes with a crispy piece of hash potato and a portion of salad. It was definitely quite filling for me.
Big Breakfast - $24
Eggs - overeasy, maple glazed bacon, tomatoes, chicken cheese sausage, hash potato, mushrooms, jam and toast
The best items of this dish have gotta be the jam and toast. The toast was crisp and the butter carried a really yummy sweetness to it! I could just have the bread and butter on its own! The mushrooms and bacon were pretty average but the chicken sausage was a letdown. The sausage was huge but it wasn't tasty at all and it had the plasticky feeling when we tried to cut into it.
We enjoyed the ambience and vibe here and the service was good. The staff were attentive and efficient. Prices are slightly steep though.
I'll return for the jam and toast anytime. They should have a special jam and toast set!
