The Village Coffeeshop

Tucked away inobtrusively along peaceful Pasir Panjang Road, The Village Coffeeshop provides a simple but comfortable makan spot on the first floor of the Pasir Panjang Inn.

The servings are fairly generous and service is friendly, although a little slow. Well…yeee-a-a-aah, 9 adults, 4 children and 2 babies with all sorts of different orders can be pretty overwhelming, heh! 🙂

This was my friend’s order of the curry chicken rice a-la-carte. The a-la-carte servings are slightly bigger than the set meal ones.  There were quite a number of chicken pieces and plenty of thick gravy to mop up the generous serving of rice.

This was my order of the local set menu – sweet and sour fish meal. It came with a soft drink and soup. The food is regular food court fare.  The fish was fine but the soup was unfortunately really quite forgettable. I rarely push food aside but I do draw the line at soup that tastes like it came out of baby jar food…

However, what this place has going for it is the following combination or the individual factors thereof:-

1. Free sheltered parking – no time wasted looking for a parking lot
2. Quiet with no crowds – how nice!
3. Plenty of seating space AND high chairs – always a winner with parents of small children
4. Air conditioning – so welcome on a hot and humid Sunday afternoon
5. Food centre kind of pricing – easy on the wallet, whichever way you look at it (if you are a student, set meals are at $3!)

And…it was near our church, so with us not needing to drive very far especially with a napping baby and hungry toddler, we will certainly be back.  I’ll just…skip the soup and go straight for the a la carte meals the next time. 😉
