Substantial all-day brunch delights and coffee right by a shoe boutique
Local contemporary footwear label Pazzion expands into the F&B world with Pazzion Cafe, which features espresso-based classics, brunch favourites and sweet treats at the ever-popular Jewel Changi Airport.
The hype: Local contemporary footwear brand Pazzion kicks things up a notch (no pun intended), expanding beyond retail and fashion. With the opening of Pazzion Cafe, avid shoe shoppers will finally have a sit-down spot situated next to Pazzion’s shoe store located at Jewel Changi Airport.
The vibe: The footwear label’s boutique lends its dining counterpart a similar look with their signature monochromatic colour scheme and minimalistic, modern chic design. Furnished with plush seats, geometric outlines and pendant lights, the space has an upscale look, but is kept cosy.
The food: The food is good enough for it to be a standalone destination. A variety of sandwiches, burgers and pastas are available, along with appetising desserts and pastries, some of which sit inside the cafe’s glass display counter.
Truffle fanatics will be delighted with the Cold Truffle Pasta ($18), which comprises a bowl of al dente angel hair pasta tossed in truffle oil, garnished with a fresh, pan-seared scallop, nori strips and fish roe. The B.e.l.t Burger ($16) one ups the usual blt, with the addition of two over easy eggs—two buttery brioche bun patties hold the grilled bacon strips, crisp lettuce pieces, tomato slices, eggs and creamy cheese sauce together.
Those who need their avo fix should order the Stuffed and Flaky ($16). The light and fluffy croissant is stuffed with scrambled eggs and a generous spread of avocado. But leave room for dessert, as you’ll want to try the French Toast ($17). The surprising highlight of the dish? A halved poached pear. The thick French brioche pieces of toast pair well with the refreshing fruit; the accompaniment of berries, caramelised bananas, cookie crumble and creme anglaise keeps this dessert a classic.
Want more sweets? Simply head to the cafe counter’s glass display to pick out other treats for further indulgence.
The drinks: There are other options apart from the usual espresso-based drinks like Latte and Cappuccino (both $5.50). The Avocado Gula Melaka ($7.50) is a creamy smoothie worth trying, while alcoholic beverages are also available, with craft beers and red or white house pours going for just $12.
Why you’ll be back: Right next to its shoe boutique, Pazzion Cafe is the rest stop for our legs we never knew we needed after a bout of shoe shopping.
