The Replacement – Lodge & Kitchen is the latest addition to the stretch of cool and hip cafe along the infamous Jalan Dohby. But… not for long we suspect, as we saw some renovations taking place right across this busy one way street.
The cafe’s interior is furnished with contemporary furnitures and industrial lights. Full length windows to allow ample natural light to flood in, making photography so much easier (no wonder this place is so highly raved on social media).
In my opinion, the quality of coffee sets the standard of the cafe. Being a coffee snob, I prefer a bold flavour and balanced mouthfeel, I also like to drink my coffee white with soy milk (lactose much). Point to note, The Replacement does not offer the option of soy milk (minus points). And while the coffee blend was just average, the food was great!
We ordered the Brioche French Toast with Vanilla Ice-cream and Berry Compote and the Friendly Eggs Benny with Smoked Salmon (best of both worlds, sweet & savoury). The dishes were quite reasonably priced and if you are traveling from across the border, you won’t even feel a pinch.
