Flour and Butter is a relatively new cafe (just opened in July 2016) at Menglait, situated right next to LeApple. It’s a medium-sized place which can fit up to 24 people at a time.
Perhaps because we went there on a Friday night, it was a full-house! So if you’re planning to go there in the evening, especially on weekends, I suggest calling them before making that trip to avoid disappointment or having to wait.
On Sundays to Thursdays, the cafe opens from 6:30 PM (yeah quite late, not the place you can go for your morning coffee run) whereas on Fridays and Saturdays, it opens from 2:30 PM. They close at 11 PM and on Wednesdays. Though this could change as they are still in the soft-opening stage (at the time this post is written).
Coffee: Gave their Flat White a try, which came with complementary cookies. According to their post on Instagram they were using Quattro blend from Highlander Coffee. Upon further research (ie Googling) I found out ‘Quattro blend’ means they use beans from 4 origins, in this case; Brazil Santos, Colombian Supremo, Ethiopia Sidamo and Sumatra Mandheling (my fave!). You can read more about the blend here. I found it to be smooth, medium-bodied with slight nuttiness.
Food: All of us had their Fish & Chips, each came with one of two types of dip – salted egg yolk and chili crab – of our choice. I recommend the chili crab. You can request to have both sauces, with an additional charge of $1. You can also request for your chips/fries to be coffee-flavoured.
They also serve few pasta dishes and several kinds of cakes.
Service: I found the servers there to be friendly and they took the time to explain the different kinds of food they offer. Our food also didn’t take too long to arrive.
Price: The drinks prices were standard – more or less the same like in other cafes in Brunei. The food was also reasonably priced.
Opening Hours: Sunday – Thursday 6:30 PM – 11 PM, Friday & Saturday 2:30 PM – 11 PM, Close on Wednesdays
