4-month old Stateland Cafe Review

Stateland Cafe is a well-known industrial-themed cafe that many in your social network would have visited. It is particularly famous for its Red Velvet Waffle after it was featured in mainstream media. I was really looking forward to my visit to Stateland and thought it would be as good as most reviews paint it to be.

What struck me immediately upon entering the cafe was the severe lack of space. The tiny shop had hardly any room to walk, or even snap any pictures. Most of the blog posts I have read gave me the impression that it was spacious and airy, but no. We had to squeeze through the aisles and look, I can't even take a picture of the shop properly without having my companion's elbow in the shot! (He was trying his best to dodge my camera).

The order counter

Eggs Benedict S$14.90


Eggs Benedict

I really enjoyed cutting through the tall tower of the eggs benedict. The mushrooms tasted great despite the lack of gravy or sauce. I guess the mushrooms are the only delicious part of their eggs benedict.

Look, these are merely soft-boiled eggs! Certainly not how eggs benedict are supposed to be...

The yolk WASN'T runny, and I thought I might as well make this myself at home.

Red Velvet Waffles — S$14.90

I was really excited to try the much-raved about Red Velvet Waffle. It looked grand upon arrival! Seems like the trio really know how to present their food well. However, the waffle looks burnt, doesn't it? Not red at all.

True to its outward appearance, the Red Velvet waffle tasted burnt. It wasn't very sweet despite all the swirls you see. In fact, it tasted really weird.

Cutting through the waffle, it seemed to me that artificial red colouring was used, rather than the traditional beetroot extract. Why should I pay a whopping $14.90 to kill myself? Most other reviews describe how delicious Stateland's food is; perhaps my visit was only a one-off disaster. But nope, I don't think I'll be returning any time soon.
