It’s Wednesday, which for foodies who like to plan ahead means it’s time to think about where you are going to eat this coming weekend. And while I know S and a whole lot of other friends are going to kill me for leaking this juicy little bit of information, I just can’t help myself. (I’ve never been able to keep good gossip to myself.) The fabulously cool PS Café, which was recently lauded in Time magazine, now serves brunch on Saturdays and Sundays. Further, from what I’ve been told—and I could be wrong—they are not taking reservations for this weekend, daytime service. Which means waking up dreadfully early to score a seat or patiently standing around waiting for a table.
S and I checked out the brunch last weekend. Fortunately, it looked like only a handful of regulars and friends knew about it (they only began the brunch service the previous weekend). Which meant that not only was getting a table at 11am not a problem but also that we recognized quite a few of the people in the room. Anyone who has been to PS Café for dinner knows how beautiful it is. It’s a gorgeous glass-fronted one story structure, with a lovely terrace overlooking greenery. I have to say that it’s even prettier during the day. The large glass panes let in lots of sunlight. It’s the perfect ambience for lingering over coffee, good food and one of the many cool fashion or design magazines available from the bar.
The menu is small but good, offering a dozen or so brunch specials. S and I were quite boring. I ordered scrambled eggs with Danish bacon, homemade baked beans, roasted tomatoes, and buttered toast. While the eggs could have been just a tad runnier, it was delicious. S had a bacon and egg sandwich, which is pictured above and as you can see does not just have bacon and eggs but some other wonderful things in it. In addition to these two egg dishes, they also serve a delicious sounding poached eggs dish, an onion and cheese flan which I’m going to order on my next visit, their signature spaghetti Bolognaise, and a few other tasty dishes. While I stayed boring and washed my food down with coffee, S ordered an interesting and lovely longan tea, made with black tea and dried pink longans that the owners hand carry from Northern Thailand.
If you’re a brunch fan, this is a great place to relax and have a great meal. I hate hotel buffet brunches—I consider them a complete rip-off. So, I appreciate the growing number of cafés offering good, moderately priced a la carte brunch menus. Now, if only we can convince PS Café to serve afternoon tea as well.
Brunch orders are taken from from 930am to 3pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
