Room Coffee.Bar

*Friend Invite*

Oh man, this post is so belated, I hope my friend doesn’t kill me! Remember nearly 2 years ago, I posted about this tiny cafe called Room with a View tucked away on the 5th floor of a Carpenter Street building? Well they’ve grown up and they have a full fledged cafe complete with hot food, at the new Alexandra Retail Centre in Pasir Panjang!

Room.Coffee.Bar - (30)

I had the opportunity to try it a couple of months back and I have to say, it’s the perfect place to spend a quiet afternoon tapping away on your laptop and sipping a cuppa. There’s also free WIFI to boot and lots of power point sockets! There are so many office towers around Alexandra Retail Centre aka ARC, such as Mapletree Business City, NOL, PSA , HP etc… If only bosses would allow you to work offsite! If it were me, I think I would be doubly productive in a more conducive environment!

Delicious coffee. Strong and smooth. Packs a punch which is perfect for waking sleepy office workers up. Don’t you just love the cute bright red saucer? It put me in a good mood even before I’d drunk the coffee! And the biscotti that Room makes is very good too.

I had this for my lunch. I was afraid it would turn out to be just any old chicken sausage which I can cook myself, but this sausage was very delicious. It was really juicy, coupled with the cheesy bits oozing out. I liked that it didn’t feel fattening either. Also liked the rosti. The potatoes were cooked just right and retained a nice bite. The colour was a little darker than usual, because the skins of the potatoes were also used.

Is it just me or do you see something funny here…. 🙂

Room.Coffee.Bar - Bacon Avocado and Tomato Panini Sandwich $10 Bacon Avocado and Tomato Panini Sandwich $10

The Partner ordered this and enjoyed his sandwich very much. It was chock full of ingredients that were threatening to spill out. A twist to the usual BLT, the creamy avocados made the sandwich feel more substantial than if it had just been plain old lettuce. If you order the panini sandwich for takeaway, you get a free iced tea!

This brownie would please dark chocolate lovers. As I have a sweet tooth, I thought it wasn’t sweet enough for me.

Room with a View

***Latest UPDATE: Room with a View has moved to the new Alexandra Retail Centre since Dec 2011, and is now called Room Coffee.Bar.

Behold my friend’s new cafe! I am so happy for her, a nice little cafe to call her own! I couldn’t wait to come and try out the food, so I did today, with 2 other colleagues in tow, only the 2nd day open for official business!

The cafe currently serves sandwiches, wraps, paninis, quiches, salads and coffees and teas. It also has this photography theme going on, where customers can have their photos framed and displayed on the walls depending on the theme of the month. Scroll down for more photos of Room with a View cafe.

Room - Mushroom Soup Soup of the Day Mushroom Soup $6.50 ordered by a colleague. I was amazed to find out that the mushroom soup didn’t have any fattening cream in it despite looking really rich and substantial. The soup also comes with several slices of bread and butter.

Room - Caesar Salad smoked chickenSmoked Chicken Caesar Salad with romaine lettuce, boiled egg, bacon bites and garlic croutons – $10.50

Room Ham and Cheese Panini with diced tomatoesI ordered the Ham and Cheese Grilled Panini $9. Ham and Cheese may sound ordinary to some, but not when it is jazzed up with diced tomatoes and Room’s secret sauce. I found the combination very refreshing when compared to other ham and cheese sandwiches.

Room Turkey BLT wrapTurkey BLT plus Avocado in flour tortilla wrap – $9

Room - Chicken and Avocado SandwichChicken and Avocado Sandwich – $8

Room - Cafe Latte Cafe Latte – $4.50 with homemade biscotti

I have to highlight something which I didn’t manage to try out during lunch today. Room with a View serves English Scones with clotted cream! CLOTTED CREAM did you hear? The only other place in Singapore that I know serves clotted cream with their scones is the Regent Hotel! Gotta come back here again soon….
