Christmas Brunch at Crossings Cafe

Hello folks! Hope you are still enjoying the season's festivities as you count down to the brand new year. The lions recently had a feel good Christmas brunch at Crossings Cafe nestled in the new Catholic Centre along Waterloo Street.

So new, even the plastic sheets have not come off 
the facade.
The spanking new Crossings Cafe is a social enterprise
by 11 Catholic investors that offers opportunities for youths,
training them in the f&b arena. They have tied up with schools
such as the vocational institute Assumption Pathway School.
Internships leading to full-fledged jobs are on the plate.

Minimalist interior with white-washed brick walls.
Time to get ready for the busy brunch hour.
A special Christmas menu was only available that day.
The lion picked the festive Chicken Schnitzel set ($10) and added on a
garden salad and soup of the day ($4).
Fresh garden salad.
Soup of the day - tangy tomato soup.
Full of homemade goodness, the lioness who is fond
of soups slurped the bowl empty before the frowning
lion could even taste it.
Chicken Schnitzel served with mushroom sauce.
Not too bad, it was well-breaded and tender.
Pulled Pork Belly Pie ($16). Orange infused braised pork belly
mixed with gorgonzola in a butter pastry. The juicy slivers of
meat were surprisingly lean. Served with a side of sweet potato
Straight-forward Lavazza Coffee.
The lions were one of the first few patrons so they were entertained by
the flow of people coming into the cafe. They were really happy to see
how quickly the place was packed with hungry diners and their families
that afternoon.

The lions have heard so much about the chili crab pasta and dry laksa noodles on the usual menu. They will be back to give it a try.
