Bite-Size Review: Waterfall Cafe at Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore

You know, there are some weekend mornings when I just want something good for breakfast; something not too complicated, not too buffet-y, not at a faux-kopitiam, and certainly not anything gluten-free.  I'm talking pancakes, waffles (freshly made, mind you, not that frozen-then-microwaved crap,) pastries that have just leaped out of the oven, a good selection of hot beverages, and eggs....lots and lots of eggs, made every which way that God intended them to be made.  That's why when I was recently staying at Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore, I studiously avoided the legendary manic breakfast line at, well, The Line, and made a detour to its newest culinary kid on the block - Waterfall Cafe, tucked between the outdoor pool and the Hef-like grotto that features Flintstone-y rocks, cascading water features and contentedly plump koi.  
The new cafe is lovely.  Truly.  It's cheery, comfortable and chic.  The decor is what I'd like to call, using my limited interior design verbiage, mod-Mediterranean colonialist.  Yes, it's hard to imagine I just made that up.  The cafe has great ambience and the open kitchen, chatty chefs, wide counters, warm wood panellings, copper-hued ceiling fans, blindingly white louvre doors, full-length glass windows and super relaxed dress code make it an ideal place to read, chat, chill, peruse the organic spices for sale, and oh yes, eat.
 
Here's a selection of our breakfast highlights:
Freshly-cut papaya slices with lime / Long black

Sugar-dusted buttermilk pancakes with blueberries

Eggs en cocotte - with salmon
