While big brother Hummerstons is modish and dashingly cool, Croute is the laid-back and casual little sister. Opened a few months ago in Valley Point, I’m happy that Croute does away with the double ++ charging policy, opting for self-service affordability instead, yay.
Croute is French for crust (of bread, pie etc) so artisan bread is naturally the star here. The menu is simple: hot/cold sandwiches, salads, dips, and one lone eggs benny rounding up its “all-day breakfast” section.
Forsaking my usual boring smoked salmon sandwich, I chose the spicy tofu on multigrain rye and it was love at first taste~ This is one veggie chick that can seriously turn some carnivorous heads with its myriad of flavours and textures ❤
The pulled pork on soft white pain de mie didn’t impress as much as the one from Smoke Shack.. Too bad, I’m not sharing mine, heh.
