We may be a little more budget-conscious this 2024, but it doesn’t hurt to treat ourselves to the occasional weekend of cafe-hopping.

Still, it’s always nice to find quality cafe fare that doesn’t break the bank.

One such spot is Croissand Cafe, a relatively hidden cafe in City Gate specialising in good ol’ croissant sandwiches (hence the name “Croissand”), pastries, and desserts, most of which are priced under S$10.

Not only do the croissant sandwiches make for a substantial meal, but they also come with fairly unique fillings that go beyond the usual eggs and ham.

Think Smoky Chicken Masala (S$7), Seafood Otah Mayo (S$8), and even Truffle Caviar Wagyu Minced Beef (S$9), which sees yakiniku-style wagyu brisket with lettuce, tomato, emmental cheese, a fried egg, and truffle “caviar” pearls.

Perfect for those who want to feel fancy sans the splurge.

Bulk it up even more with fusion pasta dishes, such as the Japanese Inspired Carbonara Fettuccine (S$16), a creamy salted egg pasta with prawns, bacon, bonito flakes, and a soft 63 degree egg.

Alternatively, the Local Inspired XO Sauce Pork Capellini (S$16) is the cafe’s take on mee pok, featuring Japanese cha shu, minced pork, pork balls, and portobello mushrooms.

If you’ve got a sweet(er) tooth, take your pick from the selection of dessert-esque Overnight Oats, or indulge in Buttermilk Waffles with toppings like Kaya & Gula Melaka Drizzle (S$8) or Hot Chocolate Sauce & Berries (S$8).

The one dessert, however, that has been making rounds on social media is the Fluffy Castella Pancake w Maple Syrup & Butter (S$7), a soft and jiggly Japanese souffle pancake served with maple syrup, icing sugar, and a generous pat of butter that can easily feed two or more.

You are highly encouraged to fork out an additional S$3 for a single scoop of gelato to pair with your waffles or pancake — might as well go all out since you’re already treating yourself.

Choose from comforting flavours like Strawberry and Cream, Hokey Pokey Caramel, and Matcha Green Tea (U.P. from S$5), depending on what you’re in the mood for that day.
