*CLOSED* The Humble Loaf - Katong

UPDATE 2: The Humble Loaf wiill be opening its brand new restaurant in a new location in July 2014. Stay tuned. 

UPDATE: The Humble Loaf at Katong Shopping Centre will have its last day of service on the 30th of April 2014, Wednesday.


The Humble Loaf is a small artisanal cafe; located in the basement of Katong Shopping Mall on Mountbatten Road (the mall with all the maid agencies), and opened in the first quarter of 2013.

As soon as you walk through the doors of this cozy cafe; you'll notice the menus on your left, split into Sandwiches (main course), Sides (Snacks) and Drinks.

The "Humble" menu
Try and get a seat at the bar (counter). Here you can see where the magic is created.

Friends who have been to The Humble Loaf have been raving on about Humble Eggs, and Not-so-humble Eggs. These are two Menu items.

I decided to try the Not-so-humble Eggs as a starter. This dish is made of thin slices of Jamon Serrano, on top of soft-boiled eggs, with chives and sliced black Olives. Once I tasted a spoonful, I couldn't stop, the eggs were cooked to perfection. Before I knew it, it was all gone. I was tempted to order another one!

Not-so-humble Eggs - S$6.00
Then I had the Herring Caviar and Truffled Egg Bruschetta as a main. The Chopped Egg and Caviar was served on toasted Bread (which they make themselves). This dish had just the right balance of saltiness.

Hubby ordered the Smoked Tomato Salad as a starter. The Tomatoes used were non-acid ones and it was topped with salad leaves and sprinkled with grated Cheese and Salt.

The Croquette Monsieur was also ordered. It's Ham and Cheese layered on top of toasted Bread. The Cheese is then baked (melted) using a Blow Torch.

They also have drinks on offer, we ordered items such as:

Raspberry Lemonade - S$4.50

Ginger Honey Tea and Piccolo Latte

They often have weekend specials, and they are detailed on the Blackboard directly in front of the serving counter.

Weekend special board changes every week
All in all, this a small, intimate cafe, maybe seating up to about 10 people. It's a great place to meet up with friends and loved ones, or just to unwind with a good book.

Dillon, the owner is a self-taught baker, bakes his own breads and pastries. Do keep an eye on their Facebook page, as they sometimes sell out of Breads and/or Pastries early.
