Some of the beautifully prepared brunch items that made their way to my plate were the blueberry-stuffed French toast, Salmon Benny, and fresh Kusshi oysters. The potatoes are seasoned with parmesan, salt, and parsley, a simple ingredient mix that made them oh-so-tasty together with a custom omelette with asparagus, smoked salmon, burrata cheese and arugula.

The beverage menu features brunch cocktail favourites Mai Tais, Pimms Cup, Mojitos, and Mimosas. I enjoyed a hot brewed Tropical Green tea from Mighty Leaf Tea, with its citrusy mango flavour component to the green leaves.
