Perfectly Presented Food
All the food I saw come out from the kitchen was presented perfectly – from colourful lattes adorned with intricate latte art to vibrant brunch dishes and desserts.
There were plenty of breakfast and lunch options on the menu – available using the QR code, which made choosing my food difficult as I wanted everything!
The signature dish is the prawn pasta, but I decided to go for the pulled pork salad and the sriracha chicken lotus buns, and then finish with the Panda French toast.
I had seen pictures of it on their Instagram page and it looked so cute! If you’re after an Instagrammable dish at Cafe Lost And Found, the Panda French toast is it!
The pulled pork salad was delicious, and fresh, and felt like a good healthy choice.
The presentation was great, and the pork in the salad had the perfect sticky texture. With quinoa, spinach, cherry tomatoes, pumpkin, pumpkin seeds, crispy onion, and a lovely lemon mustard dressing in the salad, it was very filling!
The 3 sriracha chicken lotus buns were also really tasty and satisfying!
And for the Panda French toast, wow I could not stop taking pictures! It looked fantastic, and it tasted so good!
With seasonal fruits, maple syrup, almond flakes, vanilla ice cream, and panda marshmallows on top of the French toast – it sure was a meal in itself!
To drink, I had a really yummy chai latte. I did see lots of people with really pretty iced teas and sparkling drinks with petals inside – so I’ll definitely have to try them next time!
The service at Cafe Lost And Found is good – the staff were attentive, polite, and cheerful and more than happy to accommodate any special requests.

If you plan to visit Cafe Lost And Found with your furry friend, it’s best to visit on a Sunday afternoon 2-4 pm, when they offer Human & Doggy High Tea!
It does get booked out quickly and you need to reserve your spot at least 2 days in advance, so definitely plan ahead!
During the rest of the week, dogs are allowed in the outdoor seating area of Cafe Lost And Found, plus if you ring up beforehand and book, there is one tablet inside where you can sit with your dog.
You will definitely need to ring up beforehand and check though, you can’t just walk in with your dog.
The owner has a samoyed dog named Nomi, and if you visit during the weekdays you’ll probably see him as he likes to pop in and receive cuddles from the customers!
