When I first heard of The Clueless Goat At Thomson Road, I didn’t quite like the name. “Clueless” sounded not too nice. Apart from the name, the cafe is pretty awesome in all aspects, from the interior design to the food to the service.
The menu isn’t the most tempting or most interesting. They serve only simple Brunches and Sandwiches items with Salad, sides and Waffles and of course coffee and tea and some other drinks too. Even though, that’s the case, all the items I tried so far were pretty outstanding.
The Avocado BLT was on a Sour Dough, but I never like Sour Dough so I requested for a change to Multi-grain Toast. The ingredient were simple but it was this simplicity that attracted me. It was certainly delish.
For the Eggs Benedict, the hollandaise sauce was awesome too, creamy and not the over sourish kind. The only complaint I have is the yolk was a little too cooked, not runny.
I tried one of the dessert too, the Lemon Meringue Tart. I like the tart base though the portion of Tart versus Lemon Curd versus Meringue could be altered to get a more zing flavour.
Finally the coffee, it was awesome. The way I like it. It was medium to full body, low acidity with a strong nutty and chocolaty flavour note.
I like everything about The Clueless Goat though the dessert could be improved. I was at the cafe three times before I came up with this post and each time when I was at the cafe, the service was certainly friendly, warm and prompt. This is so even on occasion where the cafe was extremely busy. Well Done The Clueless Goat!
