As some of you would know, Assembly Coffee has closed its doors over the weekend. However, if you still wish to experience the same kind of service and memorable moments, you may head on down to their sister cafe Atlas Coffeehouse. Helmed by the same team behind Assembly Coffee, this cafe is located in the same vicinity and just a short walk from Botanic Gardens MRT Station.
Initially I wanted to have their signature Atlas Butterscotch Banana Pancake ($18). Fluffy pancakes served with caramelised banana and house-made butterscotch & honeycomb ice cream.Many have said that it is worth the 20 minutes wait. Alas, they ran out of bananas at ten in the morning and I ended up ordering Candied Bacon Buttermilk Waffles ($14) to go with my cup of Hot Chocolate ($5).
The waffles was actually a great way for me to have my meat and dessert in one dish. I would recommend this dish if you can take your dessert very sweet (like me). The waffles are crispy on the outside, light on the inside and it comes with an abundance of maple syrup. On the other hand, the hot chocolate was quite a let-down. It arrived lukewarm. The saving grace is that there is no service charge here!
