A hidden gem amidst the busy street, Bread, Espresso & is located at a small alley off the main road. Even so, this quaint café is almost always packed during breakfast timings.

As the name suggests, their star attractions are the bread, and the espresso. The famous French toast is the most popular dish, and it's easy to see why.

The freshly made toast is soft, fluffy and melts in your mouth. Add in the honey to exude all sorts of heavenly flavors. It may only be a French toast, but it'll be one of the best you'll ever have.

Pair it up with the fruity aromatic espresso, and you'll get a super satisfying breakfast/tea break meal.
