Within a welcoming and inviting atmosphere, Kith Cafe serves up fuss-free, simple and rustic home-cooked food and great tasting coffee. This makes Kith Cafe an extremely popular place to chill out, and weekends typically see all of their outlets fully packed.

The informal ambience at Kith Cafe is enhanced by quirky custom-designed furniture, with square block like designs adorning the furniture and open storage shelves displaying their products. Despite a small floor space, Kith Cafe full maximises their interior to seat as many people as possible, without making diners feel cramped or uncomfortable. It also helps that their outlets typically have outdoor seating with good views of the surrounding area.

Service at Kith Cafe is warm and personal, even during busy peak periods. Staff take the trouble to check on your dining experience, and are more than willing to make suggestions. Good product knowledge as well. Food is served very quickly upon order, with very little waiting time. Kith Cafe does allow the option of corporate catering.

Food at Kith Cafe is simple, rustic, uncomplicated, and served in large portions. Despite the generous helpings, prices are reasonable, comparable to prices in most other average cafes. Kith Cafe takes pride in their original recipes, carefully sourced ingredients, freshly baked bread and pastries, and their distinctive blend of coffee. Dishes are flavourful and wholesome, and I would highly recommend Kith Cafe for brunch, lunch, and dinner!

The Mexican Eggs consist of 2 perfectly poached eggs, topped with avocado and mayo, served on 2 slices of thick multigrain bread, with a bed of baby spinach. It's accompanied by smoked salmon, caviar and spicy tomato beans. Absolutely love the contrast of salty, smoky, savoury and sweet in this dish.

The Cajun Scrambled Eggs consists of a mountain of eggs scrambled with chicken bratwurst, which gives it a smoky flavour, and mixed bell peppers (Green, Yellow, Red) / capsicums, which lend a crunch to texture. Onions, mozzarella cheese, chili, 2 slices of brioche toast and shavings of black truffle round out this dish. Tasty, with the sweetness of the onions and bell peppers / capsicums, and earthyness of the black truffles. The brioche toast is soft, fluffy, and just melts in the mouth. However, the dish can get rather overwhelming due to the large portion.

The distinctive 'not too weak and not too strong' coffee here is a house blend that attempts to bridge the Australian and Singaporean preferences for coffee. Both the Latte and Mocha are full bodied, with a slight bitterness, fragrant aroma, and a smooth texture. Left me wanting more!

The Yuzu Umeshu is very good, at once sweet and strong, with the citrus taste of yuzu and a slight sour plum flavour. Light, refreshing and perfect as a dessert tipple.

While I loved the freshness and firmness of the Calamari squid rings, the batter was limp and easily got soggy, not adding much in either taste or texture. Not so good.

The Bananas & Mixed Berries Crepe is an interesting sweet combination of bananas stuffed in a light crepe, with a sauce of blueberries and raspberries. Sweet, tart and creamy all at once, this goes down well as a dessert, or for a sweet start to the morning.

The Blackstone Eggs is a twist on the classic English Eggs Benedict, with a juicy grilled tomato replacing the sliced ham. With 2 softy and perfectly poached eggs, whose runny yolks are best mopped up with the English muffins and crisp, smoky bacon, along with grilled asparagus, this dish is a notch above average.

The Pork Belly Fried Eggs is a unique fusion dish of slow braised soy pork belly, rocket leaves, juicy grilled tomato, fresh crisp toast, and 2 sunny side up eggs. I loved that the pork belly has very little fat, and is served in a thick cut. The meat is tender, flavourful, and savoury, complementing the freshness of the rocket leaves and tomato. Pairing each mouthful with the crisp toast and lovely fried eggs is so delightful! Highly recommended!

A very basic and healthy dish, the Smoked Salmon Salad consists of 3 components. Fresh rocket leaves in a light vinaigrette, warm smoked salmon with caviar, and a salsa of avocado and tomatoes. Works well as a salad, though there isn't much cooking skill involved in preparing this.

The smooth and creamy Panna Cotta is topped with blueberries and strawberries, and the lightness of this dessert is great to finish of a meal.

Choose the doneness of your Wagyu Beef Burger, although I like mine medium to medium-rare. The excellent grade of wagyu beef and good grilling skill ensures the patty is tender and juicy, while the caramelised onions provide a sweet contrast. The freshness of the shittake mushrooms, lettuce and tomatoes, along with the crisp toasted burger buns and excellent patty make this a winner.

Truffle Fries lightly dusted with truffle oil and salt make this side dish very earthy and fragrant.

Update May-2016: Returned to Kith Cafe after 3 years, and I'm pleased to say they're doing well, if not better, than before. Ambience at Kith Cafe remains chill, casual, and laid-back, calling to mind the Australian / Melbourne cafe culture. Service is decent, staff are polite and attend to diners quickly. Food remains rustic and tasty, simple Western style fare that is hearty yet healthy. Prices have remained affordable too.

The Kith Breakfast Shake (SGD $8.50) is a healthy, filling, yet tasty milkshake beverage, made with chocolate powder, espresso, banana, digestive biscuits, and milk. Chilled, refreshing, and with a light fruity sweetness, absolutely lovely!

The Kith Kopi (SGD $4.50) tastes like a kopi-c, and I must commend the effort to make a Western coffee taste like an Asian coffee! A blend of espresso and condensed milk, this fragrant beverage is smooth and milky, though the sour aftertaste is very strong.

They offer a Beer Asahi (SGD $10) Super Dry, and when I dined here on a weekday, there was a promotion of 1 free half-pint with every plate of pasta ordered.

The Kith Super Salad (SGD $21) is a large, healthy, filling salad, a mix of crunchy lettuce, fresh spinach, kale, walnuts, cucumbers, juicy roma tomatoes, intense sun-dried tomatoes, grainy quinoa, fragrant roasted garlic, crumbly feta cheese, savoury salty smoked salmon, and a light tahini dressing. Super healthy, super tasty!

The home made Ravioli (SGD $20) here is pretty good, above average as a dish. The tender squares of ravioli pasta are stuffed with spinach and ricotta cheese, but what makes this dish stand out is the fresh, savoury sweet tomato cream sauce, topped with parmesan cheese. I personally like it with a bit of chili heat!

The hearty Manzo (SGD $22) pasta features house made tagliatelle pasta noodles, in a rich tomato and white wine sauce, garnished with juicy cherry tomatoes, tender earthy shiitake mushrooms, parmesan cheese, fresh spinach leaves, and savoury beef tenderloin cubes. While I would have liked the pasta to be more al-dente, I loved the fork tender beef and mushrooms. Good!

The large portion of Chocolate Banana Nutella Cake (SGD $8) is ultra rich and decadent, best shared! Loved the sweet, thick, luscious chocolate ganache glaze, the soft sweet banana chunk in the middle, and the moist texture of the chocolate nutella cake. So good, totally unstoppable, I just kept eating! Highly recommended!
