Cafes in the west are always welcomed – especially ones with good food! *cheers* After the success of Lola, which is located in Kovan, the owners decided to open another cafe when they came across a space which carried the vibe they wanted for a cafe!

And this outlet is just that – like Lola, the shop space is decked out in industrial chic – pretty hanging lights, metal chairs, concrete walls and floorings and plenty of wooden elements in the form of crates, tables and even pallets stacked as tables! After spending an afternoon (3.5 hours to be exact) there, I’ve realized that the place is incredibly photogenic even in the afternoon – the darker ambiance of the place somehow lets you get beautiful bokeh if your camera is capable of shallow depth of field imaging.

It is located along Pasir Panjang, just next to Fat Boys, and if you’re driving – simply turn left into Pepys Road and there’s public parking available – limited lots though! Popped by on a Sunday morning at about 11 – On The Table is about 6 months old (they opened in May!), and business’ reallyyyy good!

For the caffeine addicts - OTT serves coffee from Dutch Colony and Jewel Coffee!

I’m not coffee connoisseur (I don’t do coffee!), but my kopi addict friends found it pretty pleasant!

Water is free as long as you self-serve!

The staff were friendly, smiley and unobtrusive - I had to get sharing plates myself / ask for it, but I didn't mind that.

They don't have service charge in the bill, so we gave tips for being so friendly and tolerant with my group! ; )

They menu had a small selection of food, similar to Lola’s but I think it was enough! There were plenty of hits on the list – you can view their current menu on their facebook page here (food) and here (drinks/desserts).

First up... HONEY GLAZED WINGS!

First up… HONEY GLAZED WINGS!

I haven’t enjoyed wings this much in a long while! I’m no food blogger ah, but oh my god this was delicious, especially with the honey over it! The wings and drumlets were not too greasy and it tasted really nice. I’m super loving it and I’ll be back for just this and the waffles, hahaha.

A couple of our friends were late so 3 of us ordered this to share - Chicken wings, Fries with Truffle Mayo dip, and Bangers & Mash!

When I uploaded a picture of #OTT onto my Instagram  I was told by a former chef to try their Bangers & Mash - and they were really really good! Both my husband and Ron loved it and they almost finish the entire plate if not for the fact that they had to save some stomach space for later.

The fries were firm and thick cut - I prefer mine shoestring, but this was delicious! I like that the truffle wasn't on the fries because not everyone liked truffle - instead it was in the mayo dip *eyes with hearts* They were actually sold out on this at night!

Washed my wings down with the Organic Pear & Apple Juice, $6.

And since we were still waiting for our friends, I took more pictures hahaha. I think this was like the best seat in the house - it seats 6 comfortably, and what a great view from across! With the hanging lights it makes for a great photo (you'll see that later!) *eyes with hearts again*

While waiting for the food. Just one week and his expressions have morphed from bewildered to frowny!

The food was reasonably priced AND without GST or Service Charge – the Butter Croissant at $14 was super huge and filling! I saw one on every table and on our table itself there were 3 orders for it! It is one of the most popular items at Lola and they’ve brought it over. My Prawn Aglio Olio was a little oily but otherwise it was not too bad – would prefer the Tomato Swimmer Crab pasta though!

Did I already mention that... they serve waffles too?!?!?!

With ice cream made in-house, too! Without stabilizers and just as creamy as others - I loved their ice cream!

While waiting for our order to come we had another round of playing with the baby hehehe.

Caught Big Hero 6 on Saturday and got a plushie too! Thank you, Disney! I brought Baymax out to meet Ardan and it kept him amused for quite a while because my plush could talk!

And if you prefer natural lighting, just sit nearer to the doors - I love this shot Ron took for me with my Olympus EPL7. It was perfect and check out the baby boy's big eyes! *melts*

Then my waffle arrived after about 10 minutes and I promptly passed him over to Veronica, aka 怪阿姨 number 2 hahaha.

Big boss pose!

THE. WAFFLE. IS. SO. GOOD! I don't know about others - some people found that it wasn't buttery or sweet enough but the waffle to me, was just nice - crispy on the outside and soft on the inside - it wasn't too sweet and that meant it didn't overpower the ice cream's taste!  I picked Bailey's Brownie (one of the more popular flavors) and Cookies & Cream to share with Veronica and we practically polished off the entire thing.  This Waffles + double scoop ice cream will set you back just $10. *eyes with hearts again*

You know what else OTT has? THIS EGG SHAPED STRING CHAIR which was a perfect photography accessory for a toddler or a baby! In fact, founder June told me that it's commonly used for baby photo opps!

And then somewhere near when we were about to leave, Ardan was falling asleep in Veronica's arms... and Veronica, in her own words, "was reduced to a puddle of goo". I think there were 2 puddles there. *melts too*
