d’Good Cafe review

IMG_9239d’Good Cafe

Nestled in the prime location of Holland Village, d’Good Cafe has been around for some 2 years, but continues to serve their regulars and attract new customers.

Why? I think it is because d’Good Cafe is able to serve good consistent cafe food and coffee at their cafe.

The passion of the owners also shines through, from the execution of their menu to the little details in their cafe set up. IMG_9241

The moment we stepped into the cafe, the decor already spoke volumes of the passionate folks behind the cafe.

Spanning a total of 2 floor space and an alfresco dining area, d’Good Cafe has a cosy country style decor with many homely touches and great natural lighting.IMG_9240

The special swing area while not the most conducive space for eating main courses, is a perfect spot for some drinks and chill out. Plus photo taking too.

Coffee Lovers behold! d’Good Cafe offers a special coffee blend customised to your taste. A short coffee appreciation and some filling up of forms, their barista will lead you through a short tasting and appreciation session to customise a coffee blend suited to your tastebuds.

You can then ‘saved’ this blend for your future visits.

How totally awesome is that?

Non coffee drinkers also have options such as Matcha Latte (cute latte art!)IMG_9242

While the menu at d’Good Cafe is what we would call standard cafe items, it definitely has a much more extensive list than most and more importantly is in the excellent execution of their food.

This was also one of the few tasting sessions that all the menu items served to us were satisfyingly delicious.IMG_9245

Starting with the Prawn linguini. Perfectly al dente spaghetti pasta tossed in olive oil, garlic, chilli and a generous serving of pan seared prawns.

So delicious~

The second pasta dish impressed us further. It was their Clams Vongole.IMG_9246

Few is able to nail this dish well and d’Good Cafe did just that with this classic Italian pasta dish of perfectly steamed clams and al dente pasta cooked in white wine.

This is definitely my top pasta choice here.

Prefer a healthy option but yet love eggs benedicts?

You would totally dig their Portobello Mushroom Eggs Benedict of well poached eggs on two large portobello mushrooms topped with hollandaise sauce.IMG_9244

The mushrooms gave a earthy ‘meaty’ taste and texture to this dish, so satisfying that I did not even missed not having my usual brioche/bread.

Meat lovers will find joy in their Chicken Skewers.

I was rather shocked at how generous the portion was. Just check out the large meaty chicken meat on sticks.IMG_9248

Even with this large meat chunks, d’Good Cafe baked the chicken meat with perfect timing, retaining its flavourful meat juices, moist on the inside and nicely charred on the outsides.

Another delightful chicken dish was the Baked Lemongrass Chicken served with mashed potato and some sautéed zucchinis and mushrooms.IMG_9247

Remember to save some room for desserts!

Their in-house baked cheesecakes are one of the best. Came highly recommended is their Maple Sea Salt Cheesecake.IMG_9250

Chocolate lovers can opt for their Triplet Cheesecake which consists of cheesecake, chocolate mousse and an oreo base, topped with a chocolate macaron.

Its rather rich for me to finish one slice on my own but chocoholics will definitely satisfy their cravings with this.

Being a waffle lover, I was rather excited to try their Purple Sweet Potato Waffles. A surprising unique texture of crisp exteriors and a soft cake like texture on the inside, quite a delightful sweet treat. Best enjoyed hot.

The use of sweet potatoes also meant that this dessert item could be quite filling, so do share the calories with someone! :DIMG_9249
