Originally operating as a dessert bar in Prospect, Devour Café Patisserie now offers various café style breakfast and brunch dishes alongside their pastries in its new location at Richmond. Aside from the dishes on their main menu, various specials are offered for those that like a bit of variety.
The eggs in their Baked Eggs had runny yolks and the sauce they were cooked in complemented them nicely. Also included in the sauce were slices of chorizo to impart a hint of smokiness. Served with the eggs were slices of toasted sourdough. We opted to have the feta that is normally included in the dish served separately.

Their Potato Rosti was fried to golden brown while having a fluffy texture with a bit of bite. Also part of the dish were poached eggs cooked to perfection, chorizo sausage and marinated baby roma tomatoes that still retained a bit of sweetness. The pickled fennel added a bit of peppery taste to the dish and horseradish cream was offered on the side for those that desire to add a spicy tangy element to the dish.

The eggplant in the Panko Crumbed Katsu Eggplant Burger retained a bit of bite and was set off nicely by the panko crumb coating. The coleslaw provided freshness and a bit of crunch, and the miso mayonnaise gave the burger its distinctive flavour. The brioche bun was light and fluffy and nicely toasted.

For something to finish your meal, Devour offers various pastries displayed at the counter at the back of the restaurant. Their Coffee Doughnut had a fluffy texture and the coffee powder on its glaze gave it the slightly bitter flavour that is associated with coffee.

Their Pandan Doughnut was done as well as the Coffee Doughnut. The pandan glaze was not too sweet. Coconut flakes were also sprinkled over it to add to the Asian flair. However, we thought it would have been tastier if the pandan flavour was more pronounced.

The décor of the café gave it a casual and comfortable feel. It can get busy during the peak lunch hour so booking a table is advised to avoid having to wait for a seat.
