Visited Stateland Cafe at Bali Lane after work on Tuesday night with colleagues.
If you’re not sure where Bali Lane is, it’s just a street away from Haji Lane, near Bugis MRT station.
When you get to the cafe, you will realize it’s quite small, and the cafe is actually divided to 2 units which are not connected. Though cozy, but its definitely not a good place for big groups of more than 6.
I had their Eggs Benedict set which I usually do for all breakfast sets. Their set comes with ham, mushrooms, and a special sauce which was kinda spicy. Weird combo?
It’s not that bad actually, the mushrooms are nice and fragrant, eggs are done well, though one of it could be cooked more as the whites was still too runny. The thing was the toast wasn’t as soft and fragrant so that deducted some points from it.
My other friends had their pasta and other breakfast sets. The pastas were all mostly “OK only” comments. Whereas the eggs style (scrambled) and egg waffles actually had better raves about them. So you would probably be better off ordering all day breakfast than their pastas if you would like to try them.
Their waffles! Which are the best of the show for the night. They were pretty, crispy and fluffy! Except probably the red velvet one, which kinda sinked in, not sure why, probably due to the different mixture?
Best waffles would go to the red velvet one, it was my first try of this version, and it had some chocolate running across it, which gives the different texture in a bite! Lots of awesomeness in that! So please try that if you had only one for your stomach space.
The others toffee nut and smores, I would recommend the toffee one over the smores. Which had a nice syrup over it which gives you a nice sweet caramel type of taste. The chocolate one however just lacked anything special or the punch to it.
Overall would recommend this cafe to all my readers! Just hope they can overtake the unit in between them so they can expand and create a more spacious environment.
