The Place Located diagonally across Koko Black in Claremont Quarter, Atomic Cafe features a modern and spacious breakfast spot. There are 2 entrances to the cafe: One of the entrances leads you directly to the counter to place your order and the other to the tables.
The Occasion It was a lazy morning before work so I headed off to Claremont to do some shopping. I stopped by this cafe for a hearty breakfast before doing some damage.
The Good It’s all about the ambiance. The cafe is very new and modern that it makes you want to just sit down, relax, enjoy your breakfast and have a good read afterwards – which was exactly what I did on this particular day. It was a busy morning so I picked a semi-secluded table near the door where I could lean and read my book, Water for Elephants. My brekkie consisting of a big breakfast and a skinny latte came about 15 minutes after I placed my order, which gave me ample time to read a chapter from the book.
Breakfast was not greasy and the bacon I had was almost fat free which is definitely good and coffee was pretty good too.
The Not-so-good My big breakfast was not big at all. Considering the price they charge, $22, you would think that serving would have been bigger. Plus, there weren’t any hash browns! The horror! The 2 slices of ciabatta bread that came with it was not very substantial either. Sourdough bread would’ve been a much better choice.
I also have an issue with their chairs. The chairs have no back support. If you lean too far back you would definitely fall over. Lucky for me I chose a table near the door so I was able to lean sideways on the door.
My rating 6.5/10
