Hidden just like its neighbor, The Coffee Daily, Sun Ray Cafe is chucked in a corner of Serangoon Gardens. Publicity was pretty successful I must say. Of course, it’s needed for an inaccessible dining place. Reviews turned out just as successful. With that, I decided that I must give it a shot and check out the hype.
They serve all-day brunch, together with their regular lunch / dinner main courses. No prizes for guessing it right – I ordered Brunch, for dinner, yes. Guilty as charged.
American Breakfast ($14.90+) :: Besides the buttery-tasting bread (which is perfect), and the indistinct sausages, there was the scrambled eggs. Upon spotting the runny and creamy-looking scrambled eggs, I was all ready to jump on it. Because yes, I am the minority who likes the egg as soft and scrambled (as it should be) as possible. But with high expectations comes great disappointment. It was insufficiently salted.
Eggs Benedict ($10.90+) :: Same bread used as in the American Breakfast. The course was mediocre and nothing to yell about. Quite a safe choice for this cafe, if you ask me. Though Wild Honey’s is still prevalent.
Minute Steak & Eggs ($12.90+) :: I should have been taken the price as a forewarning that nothing good comes cheap. Second-class steak was served, not missing out on the fact that it was tough. It did not satisfy any of my beef cravings, sadly. This course fell way too short, and it’s to be avoided until it’s being looked into.
What’s unique is its policy of being pet-friendly. Diners can opt for either a pet-friendly area, or a non. Pet lovers, this can have a ‘good view’. It works, because it’s hidden amongst private estates; Amongst the rich asses (I’m just jealous) whom, if do not have a pet, is a crime. It can get noisy at times, with the dogs barking (at each other) from time to time. So depending on what you are looking for, sit in the respective sections accordingly.
So unfortunately, Sun Ray Cafe doesn’t hold a finger to most other brunch places. Moreover, it is hard to get to. Hopefully, its main courses are better than its brunch items.
