Nassim Hill Bakery is a cafe that I frequent for three simple reasons, 1. its proximity to home, 2. the ease of finding a car park lot and; 3. the expectation of reliable food that comes out from the kitchen.
Located at the back of the old Tanglin Post Office building, Nassim Hill Bakery bakes their own breads in full view of the diners – absolutely no outsourcing here. That is also probably reason enough for a bread basket to be served the moment one gets a seat the cafe.
The bread tasting platter, if you will, was decent. That said, I’m no bread nazi and to me, bread is just to quell those hunger pangs anyway.
The coffee, in all honesty, nothing to write home about but decent by most accounts.
The eggs benedict (you may opt to replace the ham with salmon too), as with most other dishes that I’ve tried so far, are reliable, if only slightly boring, options. I’ve not had a visit where my eggs were over-cooked or hollandaise that was dosed with too much vinegar. As I said – reliable.
By the way, the bakery cafe is seen in a different light at night – there is a seperate dinner menu (consisting of mainly bar grub) and I hear that drinks are fairly priced too. In any case, Nassim Hill Bakery, being run by the same guys who own popular watering holes Balaclava and KPO, can’t go too wrong.
