Fig Jam Cafe situated in the heart of Carnegie, Koornang Road. The cafe is easily accessible by public transport and private vehicles. There are plenty parking spaces around this area.There are plenty cafes and restaurants available along this street but Fig Jam cafe brings different colors and standard of the breakfast/lunch menu and great coffee offered.

The restaurant is pretty spacious as they have 3 different spots: at the front where you can see the barista in action ,at the centre where you want to have more privacy and quiet and outdoor spot if you want to enjoy the sun at rear. We opted for the outdoor spot and we really enjoyed the interior design chosen decorated with many plants. The customer staffs are very nice and friendly.

To start off our food journey we ordered a cup of cappuccino and mocha.We were suggested to order the following dishes:Crispy Chicken Bao *Crispy chicken, cabbage, pickled cucumbers & onion, coriander and sriracha mayo.It’s a creative dish introduced by Fig Jam Cafe combining the Asian and Western flavours. Great taste from the combination of all ingredients used. The chicken was served crispy and warm from outside, but it was slightly oily inside; It would be better for longer drainage after deep fried.

The Smashed Avo *Herbs & feta smash, slow roasted tomatoes, pickled beetroot, poached egg & dukkah spices.The bread was toasted perfectly served with generous portion of avocado. It was a great option to welcome the summer by having this fresh dish; Also perfect option for vegetarians.

Blueberry Ricotta Hotcake *passionfruit, mascarpone, seasonal fruits, seeds, nuts & maple syrup.
This was the winner on that day. We loved this dish the most.The ricotta was beautifully presented, served warm with generous portion.The hotcakes were fluffy and you could clearly see and taste the blueberries used. The sweetness mostly came from the blueberry itself which was really good.
The overall taste came into perfection when you ate together with fresh fruits on the side, mascarpone and hotcake.Definitely recommended to order this dish when you come to this cafe.

It was pretty warm on that day, thus we wanted to try their fresh juice. We ordered detox (apple, celery, lemon, cucumber, spinach) and mixed special (orange, carrot, apple, celery, ginger). Both fresh juices were amazing, great quality / taste and freshly made.
