ToastBox VivoCity

When times are lean and you have to make every penny count, it pays to know where the cheapest deals are. Price doesn’t always have a correlation with quality. Today a few friends and I decided to forgo the $3.50 dessert cafe for ToastBox at VivoCity. It only cost us $2.50 each to enjoy a cuppa each plus buns and toast.

Kaya Toast with Butter, only 2 slices though. Yakun serves up a bigger portion. I think I still prefer the kaya at Yakun, only problem is, at Yakun, they tend to give you a very thin layer of kaya, whereas I like my toasts to be richly covered with kaya!

Thick toast with butter and sugar – ToastBox is still my favourite place to have this after all these years. They are one of the few places that spread the butter evenly on the bread, such that each square of bread tastes good. Other places give you lumps of unmelted butter and expect you to do something with it.

Chocolate Cherries cake and other sponge cakes. Have never tried them although the price looks very tempting. It’s good to know that we can still enjoy cake for only $1.20 in Singapore.

Nothing like a slice of banana cake and a steaming hot cup of tea to chase the grey clouds away. The Toast Box banana cake certainly is cheap, and for the price, it’s tolerable. I don’t think I’ve ever had really good store bought banana cake before. Does anyone know of any good places to have some? But as with Kaya, the best banana cake is a home made banana cake.

Tea and Toast at Toastbox

Tea and Toast

Tea and Butter & Sugar Toast from Toastbox. Something so simple tastes so good!!! The best butter sugar toast definitely has to come from Toastbox. This is like the ONLY place in Singapore that I know of that actually butters the toast for you. You would be surprised that most establishments do not butter the toast! What they do is shove in some slices of butter onto the toast. There is no way the butter is going to melt evenly onto the toast, if it melts to begin with. Too bad Toastbox isn’t more widely available as compared to Yakun. They have one at Raffles City, Suntec City, Vivo City and several other places. And I really love their old fashioned decor with all the old pictures too. If they just had some nice plush cushioned sofas, I could spend the entire day there with a laptop!
