My initial purpose taking a trip all the way to East Coast was because I wanted to visit Penny University which was located a street ahead from Madnest. Well.. I was pretty unfortunate because when I was there... There wasn't any queue but the stove was spoilt. Yes, the stove was spoilt. Seriously, what are the odds of you arriving at the cafe and the cafe stove has to spoil. God, I need to shower some flower water. (if you know what I mean.)
While driving pass Penny University in search of parking lots, we chanced upon Madnest. Since we couldn't get any brunch from Penny University, we decided to give Madnest a go. (which I awfully regret not reading some reviews before going.)
The entire cafe was empty. Yes, e-m-p-t-y. (I should have picked up this alarming bell ringing at the back of my head.) Seriously, a Saturday afternoon.. a completely empty restaurant? Something has ought to be wrong.
Nonetheless... we went ahead. So the entire place looks pretty neat. I like the furnitures and the ambience. But of course the food was an absolute disappointment. I had poach eggs that tasted like boiled eggs, tasteless bacon and mediocre tasting salmon. The latte good looks but that's all about it. Nothing fantastic about it. I guess the only edible food that we were happy about was the truffle fries. Of course it was nothing awesome but comparing with the main dishes.. I guess that's the only good thing about that place.
Well, you should see this coming. Don't bother visiting Madnest. It's expensive and the food is terrible. I have no comments on the service because we were the only customers. If we're the only customers and I have comments, then this cafe should probably just close down.
I've pictures below taken for you to judge yourself whether if you agree or disagree with me. Of course, it's still your own preference if you would like to take a visit or not. But if you ask for me opinion? Don't bother, really.
|Latte @ $5|
|Truffle fries @ $10|
|Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon @ $15|
|My salmon looks so dry. And yes, it's just, mediocre|
|Eggs Benedict with Streaky Bacon @ $12|
|Bacon doesn't even look delicious. :(|
|No oozing out goodness. I was so disappointed.|
|Poached eggs? LOL.|
