Finally a trip down to Wheelar’s Yard. Impressed by the decoration and cool bikes but disappointed by the food. As you may or may not know, Wheelar’s Yard is based on a bicycle workshop concept with the incorporation of cafe. From the exterior walls, metal bins and gates, totally give you the workshop feel. Furthermore with bicycles lined up just at one side of the area, and another filled with seating tables. I would say it’s one of the more unique themed cafe. And the decorations dont just end there. There’s more within the cafe area too.

There’s bicycle statues on some of the bigger tables and safety helmets hung on the wall as part of the decorations. When you step into the cafe interior, it gives you the feeling that you’re somewhere out of Singapore for a moment. It’s spacious, with mixture of wooden fixtures and comfy sofa, not a typical cafe you’ll commonly seen in singapore. Also, there were a few art students doing their sketching and drawings of the surroundings there.

But all the pretty cool decorations aside, the food is nothing worth raving about. It’s a total disappointment.

There’s a decent variety of food ranging from starters, mains, pasta, weekend brunch, coffee etc. For one the price are not that cheap. So at least i will expect something decent for that price. But sadly, it’s otherwise.

Cheese Fries ($9.90): Chef recommendation. but it just feel normal or worse then normal. It’s just cheese and fries right, how bad can it be right. It get soggy in no time, and just feel gelard after eating awhile.

Flat White ($5), Cappuccino ($5) and hot chocolate ($6)

Smoked Salmon and Scrambled Eggs ($18.90): It’s served on toast with a garden salad. Salmon is heavily smoked with salt, no other taste other than being salty. Scrambled egg that tasted milky and plain. It obvious that some taste is missing. Bread is not toasted either. Usually bread should be slightly toasted to complement the whole dish.

Wheeler’s Yard Big Breakfast ($19.90): No comments

Shrooms Aglio Olio ($17.90): Al dente pasta is the norm and basic requirement. But this spaghetti is just undercooked. The pasta is hard and whole dish is just dry and oily.

Fish & Chips ($18.90): Comment by my sis who ate it: Not recommended. Thick batter, crumbly fish. Nothing fantastic.

So overall, its a place worth going for the ambience but definitely not for the food.
