Coffee Break has become the talk of the town, and the black sesame toast is the undisputed star of their menu! @kermit couldn't contain her excitement as she raved, "Finally tried the black sesame toast at Coffee Break!! Super shiok, especially if you like the kind of kaya toast with a slab of butter. The sesame balances out the creamy heavy butter super well, the toast is crunchy too!" @bbjiaksimi couldn't agree more and chimed in, "Good right! I always get that if I am around in the morning. Also more butter than most places hurhur."

It's not just @kermit and @bbjiaksimi who are hooked on this toast sensation; even @richylyq proudly declared it as their "usual Friday breakfast for past weeks," boldly stating, "Black Sesame Toast never fails."

But that's not all Coffee Break has up its sleeve! The classic coffee has sparked its own frenzy, with @x3rai bravely joining the queue to see what the hype was all about. Their conclusion? "it's actually worth the queue haha." So, if you're craving a cheap and delightful breakfast experience, head over to Coffee Break for a taste of their epic $3.50 black sesame toast and a cup of $1.60 classic coffee. You won't be disappointed! ☕🍞🥐
