boring western food

Western food was and will never be a big part of my diet. If it wasn't for a gathering that I had to attend here, I probably would have never stepped foot into this place. BREEKS cafe sells Western food like burgers, pasta, fish and chips at restaurant prices. Around $14.90 - $17.90 per dish would be a safe estimate. I ordered a serving of fish and chips because I didn't felt like having pasta that day and I would prefer going to an Italian restaurant for pasta. After all, if a Western place cannot do fish and chips well, how can it call itself a Western cafe right?

The fish and chips surprised me. In a bad way. The fish was most likely frozen fish and the batter was so heavy. I like fish and chips that are light and fluffy. Definitely not this. I could walk to Holland Village market and get better fish and chips for 1/3 or 1/4 the price. This place is not only expensive, but not impressive at all. Just below average Western food at bad prices. Service was average. The store was clean and felt comfortable though, that's the saving factor of Breeks. If you are truly looking for a good place to have Western food at, I would not recommend visiting Breeks. Needless to say, I won't be coming back here again!

Catch a beeze at breeks

I had lunch at breeks at habourfront centre because i was tired of the usual fast food from MacDonalds or burger king. The pricing was way much steeper than the regular fast food although they do sell pastas. I tried their burger which was a pretty big portion. The food was average, just like any other fast food but I feel it is healthier as the burger had more veggies inside a normal zinger burger at macs.

It was really quiet and i do know how they survive because the restaurant is always pretty empty when i pass by it. The huge posters of Caucasians smiling and chilling was what attracted me to Breeks because i thought that the food would taste more American and i would feel relaxed eating there. It was indeed relaxing because it was quiet but the price did not make me feel relaxed. I wouldn't be going there anytime soon.

Breeks is a total brick-full of deliciousness!

My stomach grumbled as I streamed pass the shops at Marina Square, quenching my thirst to splurge cash on items that could spruce up my wardrobe. It was around 2pm, or was it 1pm? My family and I hadn't had lunch for the day yet! As if on cue, my stomach grumbled once again. Alarmed, I scanned my surrounding area, in search for a nearby eatery. That's when my eyes caught sight of it. The one and only, Breeks.

It wasn't exactly located indoors. It was placed outside but still equipped with air-con and conjoined with Marina Square. We were ushered to our seats and given the menu. The service was definitely efficient. The grilled chicken arrived faster than frying eggs could! I was massively impressed. My mother ordered something that includes a bowl of free chicken soup. Personally, I wasn't a fan of soups. However, something about it's display and the smell that it exuded, lured me to grab a nearby teaspoon and scoop the soup contents up! I tasted it with one gulp. The slice of chicken that was sprinkled into the soup was truly a a brilliant fusion with the seasoned soup! I found myself scraping the base of the bowl savouring every last remaining drip of soup. It made delicious an understatement. It even converted me into a fan of soups!

Additionally, the entire Breeks crew bid farewell to all of us in unison when we left the area after making our tummies satisfied and contented! Truly remarkable. We were bricked with a memorably impressed impression.

Not the food gem

Your wallet will certainly catch fire when you eat at Breeks, and sadly, the quality of the food does not match the high prices. I mean, it's actually okay, but I expected more flavour out of the food that they serve. They do have interesting concepts and dishes, like a Tom Yam Spaghetti, but the price is too off-putting for a mediocre tasting dish.

The service is not bad. generally the staff is kind and served us well. The food was cooked in good time. Not too long or short.

As for the ambiance, I give a shake of my head. I went to Breeks at Anchorpoint and Habourfront centre, and in both areas the restaurant is situated in a very open area, in the middle of the shopping paths. I feel very uncomfortable dining in Breeks and would not recommend this restaurant if you're looking for a quiet ambiance.,

Poor service

I was at the Ngee Ann City branch a few weeks back. The reason I chose this restaurant was because there was a long queue outside the Japanese restaurant. There was no queue outside this restaurant but I still had to wait for a table. The few staff working in the restaurant was not very organised and I guessed that was why they were so busy.

We got a table after waiting for few minutes. The menu did not have a lot of items so we were able to decide on the items we wanted. Anyway, my children only knew fish and chips from western food menu. We asked for plain water when ordering our food and it was only after reminding the staff that we finally got our water. The staff was really disorganised.

The best part was that they served the food without bringing the utensils. My daughter asked me are we expected to eat with our hands. I got the attention from the waiter only after a while and needed to wait for a while longer before our utensils were brought to us. I also noticed the same thing happening to the table besides me.

Rather nice place for dinner!

I went to the Marina Square outlet to celebrate my friend's birthday. The staff was nice in helping us light the candles and keep the cake refrigerated while we had dinner first. They also helped us take quite a few group photos kindly.

Food was not exactly great and prices were rather high between $20-$30. For that price, I would expect better quality and better tasting food. The burger was nice though. I would suggest anyone to only visit there if there was a 1 for 1 promotion or something similar.

Below average

Breeks Cafe has been around for as long as I can remember, and that actually surprises me - I can't believe they managed to survive after so long.

There is nothing special or fantastic about the food at Breeks; the pasta (spaghetti bolognaise) was average, the dessert was average; everything was average in fact. My stomach was thoroughly bored that day.

At the price I had to pay, I definitely expected much more from Breeks. There are so many other places that offer better food at even better prices, so I strongly urge Breeks to improve on its food. For a veteran who has been in the industry for such a long time, Breeks really does not fail to disappoint.

Nothing good, nothing bad

My experience there wasn't really impressive, it is just another meal.
I visited the one at Causeway Point, ordered the Fish n Chips.

It tasted okay and my friend said the western food stall in the coffeeshop just below his block can make something like that. I have to agree.
Another thing is their seats, I remember sitting on the cushioned seat but it has a split. When I visited they are still considered new, so how on earth did they get the split so soon?

nothing fantastic

Breeks cafe wouldn't be my first choice for western food. However, a few months back, they had a 1 for 1 offer for main course. Since it was such a good deal, my family and I headed to their outlet at Changi Airport Terminal 2 for dinner.

I ordered a beef and chicken grill set with fries. The beef and chicken were passable and the mushroom sauce helped complement the meat. In fact the meal was so mediocre that there wasn't anything worth remembering.

I don't think I'd every try Breeks if not for the 1 for 1 offer. The usual price of their main courses are quite pricey for food of such standard.

Why is it still around??

Alright, why exactly is Breeks still around? There is nothing special about Breeks anymore! They have no signature dishes, no promotions, no dining membership, and most importantly, no quality in their food at all!

Back in their heyday, Breeks used to be what Billy Bombers is to us today, an American diner. Today, however, it is a wannabe-restaurant where service staff with sub-par customer service skills work and where overcooked, overpriced, and virtually tasteless food gets served to customers looking for something more.

There is nothing I can't find on the menu at Breeks that I can't find at Billy Bomber's or Jack's Place and pay roughly around the same price.
