Finally had time to pay a visit to the famous Dazzling Café (from Taiwan) at their first Singapore outlet. Interestingly, months after their opening, there’s still a queue for their famed Shibuya toasts on a normal Saturday afternoon around 4pm. Not to worry though, it’s just a short queue time, about 10 to 15 minutes.

While waiting for my table, I had a quick glance around the café. I loved the white house carousel, the vintage lamp posts, the elegant fireplace, the bar counter and last but not least, the bunny chairs. Actually, it’s not me but my little girl who loves the bunny chairs.
We were ushered to the upper deck which has a cosier setting. The only unfavourable part about it was that the sun was still shining brightly in the mid afternoon and it was quite glaring at some of the tables. We took a corner table which was in the shade and eagerly browsed through the visual menu.
Their honey toasts starts from $16.90 (the classic one) and mainly hovers around $18.90 for the flavoured ones. We went for our favourite combination Banana and chocolate honey toast ($17.90).
Looking up from my seat, I could see the clear blue skies and the moving clouds. The structure of the whole place is indeed beautiful.
A pretty enormous looking honey toast appeared on my table shortly after. I was glad I only ordered one to share between the three of us. It was visually appealing and different from the other honey toasts I had tried before. It’s a good portion for 2-3 persons.
I was kind of disappointed with the texture of the toast. For the price tag and positive reviews garnered, I had higher expectations and was looking forward to an outstanding toast.
The combination of the ingredients was great though. I loved the nice chocolate, honey, cashews, ice-cream and bananas. The water refills were lovely for a warm day.
Good service, good combination of food but the toast can be better as I had better toast elsewhere, mainly in Bangkok.
