As F.C. and I got ready to head off for the weekend, we decided to do brunch nearby his place. Everytime I get off at the Damac Properties metro, Friends’ Avenue keeps looking at me from afar, almost beckoning me.

This time I managed to take him there (Can you believe he hasn’t tried this place even though he stays a building away? What would he do without me?). We really loved the warehouse-feel of the place with the bikes on the walls, the green plants and all-round hipster/start-up/I cycle all day err-day vibe.

Take a looksie here:

It took us a few minutes wait as the whole cafe was buzzing with chatter all around. I really liked the feeling here. To start off, we ordered a “Literally, the best” Benedict (with bacon, of course) and a “Back to Hawaii” French toast. For drinks, I ordered a fruit colada iced tea and F.C. got his coffee fix with an iced mocha. Now, I gotta say: Friends’ Avenue is Instagrammable as HELL! Check it:

Our sprightly drinks; an iced mocha and a fruit colada iced tea.

Our food and drinks both arrived in record time, which made me really happy. My fruit colada tea was unsatisfactory though, even with the sugar syrup. It tasted like a flat Shani. F.C. on the other hand, really enjoyed his chilled mocha.

I really liked the food at Friends’ Avenue. The eggs benedict was made just how I like it (slightly runny on the inside). It went well with the mushrooms and bacon. However, I didn’t like the extremely thick slice of bread that went it. Overall however, I really enjoyed the fresh ingredients and the fresher vibes.

As for F.C., his Hawaiian french toast made me wanna be part of a luau. Excellent tropical flavours with fresh fruits. I can’t wait to be back to try their salads and the rest of their lunch menu!
