Starting its roots from the Omni-Theatre at Singapore Science Centre, Tolido’s expanded with its second outlet located just outside the city area at Crawford Lane which is a strategic site that attracts both office workers and cafehoppers as well.
(Tolido’s American Breakfast)
Pasta are served here, but its the all-day breakfast that is the highlight here. My dining partner had the Tolido’s American Breakfast, made up with toast, baked beans, sunny side-up, sausages and bacon. It was generally faultless but not fantastic, with the bacon in particular being too salty. It was however filling and worth the price, but felt like something that anyone could whip up in the kitchen.
After hearing about how fluffy the pancakes here were, I decided to have Banana Pancakes. Fluffy it was, and with the banana mixed into the batter it bore a tinge of sweetness with every bite. Maple syrup seemed rather minimal but enough to compliment the pancakes without overpowering the main dish. The only qualm was that it had a flavour in the batter that was really similar with a particular brand of pancake mix, which makes it feel less unique than it should be.
We got a Cinnamon Roll to share, which was warmed up upon order. It was buttery and well-spiced with the taste of cinnamon lingering with every bite.
(Latte & Bailey’s Coffee)
Being a place for coffee, we could not miss out on ordering coffee along with our food. My dining partner went with a Latte, while I was immediately attracted to the Bailey’s Coffee. The coffee was just nice without acidic not being too bitter, and there was enough Bailey’s to bring out that alcoholic content in the coffee. Yahava Koffeework blends are used to ensure the quality of the coffee.
We were not really wow-ed by the food, but we were impressed by the sincere service and coffee. This is a place that we definitely would not mind to frequent in the future, especially to have a cake over a cup of coffee.
