Cottontail Creamery is a gem of a place located a short walk from NEX Mall / Serangoon MRT. We really loved Cottontail’s garden-to-table theme and the cafe’s open, bright and tastefully decorated space. It is a perfect spot for relaxing on a weekend with a good book.
It is actually quite unbelievable how such a beautiful cafe is flying so under the radar as it can easily hold its own against the much more well-known cafes. There are small touches that make this cafe unique, including a cool little herb garden lining the back of the cafe. Each batch of herbs has a neat label showing what is being grown and what it is used for.
Okay back to the food now! Despite its’ name, Cottontail doesn’t just serve ice cream; it actually has a pretty great brunch menu. Here are some of our favorites.
1. Smashed Avocado ($15.50)
Cottontail’s Smashed Avo is truly made for Instagram. You really have to give credit for the beautiful presentation and attention to detail. Thankfully it tastes great as well, with the creamy avocado perfectly complementing the roasted tomatoes and thick toast. I only wish they would give a bigger serving!
2. The Breakfast Bun ($12.50)
The Breakfast Bun is a pretty affordable option that comes with a generous amount of fluffy scrambled eggs, a unique charcoal bun and a heap of bacon hash browns.
The highlight of this for me was probably the bacon hash browns which reminded me of a deconstructed rosti. 10/10 for this superstar side.
3. Big Breakfast ($20.50)
The big breakfast is a satisfying classic that Cottontail zhng-ed up well. In this take, we get a juicy baked portobello mushroom, a pork patty (instead of a sausage) and those decadent hash browns. The patty was a bit dry though, I hope they will improve on it. Otherwise, everything else really hit the spot.
4. Pulled Pork Quesadillas ($17.50)
I know, I know, this one looks like a big mess & who eats quesadillas in the morning amirite? This was surprisingly good though, do give it a shot. The quesedillas are made thin enough so as not to be ‘gelat’ and the cheese is baked to crispy perfection.
5. Dutch Baby Pancake ($13.50)
For some sweet treats, try their Dutch Baby Pancake. I expected a tiny pancake when I ordered this, and was pleasantly surprised that no, baby pancake does not mean small pancake. This is a large fluffy pancake with a heap of fresh strawberries, homemade strawberry jam and vanilla ice cream. It was just the right amount of sweetness and all the flavors went really well together.
The coffee is reasonably priced (~$5) and decent but nothing much to shout about though. We also tried the hot chocolate which was rich and satisfying.
With the excellent food, lovely ambience and laid-back vibe I suspect that it is only a matter of time before Cottontail Creamery gets discovered by the masses as well! Loved the experience here and highly recommend that you pay it a visit.
