The long, long waits for a table are gone, but the pancakes are as fabulous as ever. Nowhere else in Singapore are pancakes as luscious and perfect as those at Clinton Street Baking Company. Met up with a couple of my old friends last Sunday and this place was simply perfect - great coffee, too.
Blueberry pancakes with warm butter-maple syrup:
Buttermilk biscuits with soft scrambled eggs, double-smoked bacon, melted Cheddar, house-made tomato jam and potato hash.
Country breakfast with ham, eggs, hash and biscuit.
Come before 12 noon and a crowd builds up soon after that - this is Singapore after all, with its excruciating ever-present queues for anything and everything.
