The Ponycat Cafe
If you don’t already know, I really love trying out different cafes/restaurants. Last weekend, my boyfriend and I went to The Ponycat which is a cafe located at New Farm. I’ve been here once for coffee, but not really a meal so we decided to try their breakfast. I found out that the staffs were Taiwanese and they not only sell Western style breakfast, but they also do Taiwanese style dinner on Friday and Saturday night.
It is a very small cafe with colourful paintings around the wall. Unfortunately, I forgotten to take photos of the interior as we was sitting at the tables outside.
For drinks, we ordered Beetroot Latte and and Ice Latte. I don’t normally eat beetroot (because I am a picky eater 😛) but I decided to go for a change. The coffee was surprisingly sweet and upon asking, they mentioned that they added honey into the coffee. This was also not on the menu, but you can ask the waitress if you would like to try it!
This sounded really interesting so we decided to order this. The potatoes waffle had a slightly sweet taste to it and it was very soft and fluffy! It was a really pleasant combination to have it together with the eggs and bacon.
This was delicious. They served it with moderate amount of avocado and both the rocket pesto and balsamic glaze was 👌👌👌
We also realised that they sell a very traditional Taiwanese breakfast which was Spring Onion Pancake. It tasted quite authentic as they were handmade by the chefs.
Overall, the food was delicious and we both enjoyed the food here. It was reasonably well priced and it’s quite similar to other cafes. The ingredients were also fresh which was great. The environment was very calm and relaxing while the staffs were very friendly and their service was very quick. I would definitely come back to try their Taiwanese style dinner as the Spring Onion Pancake had left me a good impression.
Just be aware though, you might find it hard to find parking sometimes unless you get lucky!
