Not so Awesome Cafe

The lions had a not so awesome time at My Awesome Cafe. Service was surly and terribly condescending (e.g. bill automatically rounded up and change snootily handed back, etc), leaving a bitter aftertaste. But less on the hurtful specifics and mediocre fare for now. Hopefully an isolated incident. They do need to buck up on the service though. Or was it a case of one disgruntled employee? Time for a pictorial post. The cafe does look quite pretty at night though.

TCM references on the menu. A tribute to what was formerly
Telok Ayer Chung Hwa Free Clinic at the ground floor of this shophouse.
Raw, industrial, hole-in-the-wall vibe, almost gothic at
Creepy looking vintage knick knacks like this make it
exceedingly entertaining just looking around.
Office crowd relaxes with drinks in hand.
Homemade cakes. We hear the upside down fruit cakes are delish
from online reviews but were recommended a dry as Sahara brownie
that night.
Hip antiques - check!
Another one!
Love the aging facade that was preserved, including the bold red
Chinese characters.
Sparkling water was ordered but
the bottle came uncapped and still water flowed.
Oh well... ...
Dry brownie.
Duck Rilette Sandwich ($14). Thin spread of rilette
on an otherwise crusty baguette.
Mainly sandwiches and salads on the menu that night.

The lions' one other dish did not arrive at the table but it was a blessing in disguise, perhaps.
