Jovis Cafe

Jovis has recently launched new items on their menu. Have you tried them yet?

We had the Jovian’s Platter for Meat Lovers which is good for sharing for about 2 to 3 pax. The Platter comprised of Caramelised Black Angus Sirloin Steak, 2 Lamb racks, 2 Pork, and Chicken Sausages accompanied by Roasted Potato and Seasonal Vegetables. 

Jovian’s Platter - Meat Lovers - $88

The Soft Shell Crab was crunchy and moist with wonderful flavours while the spaghetti was cooked to Al Dente perfection and tossed in a tomato-based sauce, It was elegantly bundled up, enhancing the presentation of the dish aesthetically. The colour contrast of the dish served on the plate was totally wholesome.

Soft Shell Crab Pasta - $22

A visit to the Faber Drive Estate let me realise that it seems more happening with numerous new shophouses featuring. No doubt that Jovis Cafe has been there for quite some time after taking over the previous cafe,  BuckTile St. Cafe, I have not made a trip there. For all you know,  Jovis Cafe is just a few doors away from Lee's Taiwanese serving western as well as some home-cooked dishes.

A sneak through the windows of Jovis, we notice cute Crayon Shinchan and a lited smiley face next to the main door. They look as if waiting for its customers and welcoming them with a smile.

Jovis The Dining Place

The cafe has some Instagram-worthy corners that you might want to spend some time making memories out of it. You may also want to write on their wishing tag then hang them onto the wishing tree outside the cafe.

Pen your wish down and tie it to the heart shape tree here.

The setting of the cafe was homely with soothing background music playing. It sounded as though I had stepped into some kind of spa retreat place instead.


Do pop over to this quaint neighbourhood cafe for tea in the afternoon or if you are looking for some unpretentious cafe food with friendly service, this will fit the bill.

Tiramisu Latte & Chrysabnthemum Tea (Cup) - $5.50 , $5

This bottled Lychee Tea is crafted In House and it is indeed refreshing with the Lychee in it. Despite the natural sweetness of the Lychee, the tea as overall is not so sweet

Lychee Tea - $4

If you are going for Soda, do try out their refreshing Saltymansiberry drink. It is a mixture of cranberry, lime and soda with salt around the rim of the jar. Their cold beverages are all decked up by the cute little wooden pallet as their coasters.

Another recommended soda on their menu will be the Apple Mango flavour.

Ice Salted Caramel Milk Tea was not too sweet and the pearls were soft and chewy. While the Coffee taste of the avocado coffee shake is strong yet the richness of the avocado remained.

If you love Avocado Shake with different varieties, they have a few for you to choose from. The shake was coated with unsparing about of Nutella on the side of the doubled wall glass, mixed with milk and gula Melaka. Nutella lovers sure do not want to give this a miss.

The avocado shake was a good deal. Its chocolate and creamy texture were addictive. With them being packaged in bottles, it’s ideal for taking away and sharing this shake with avocado lovers.

Wings were served in a steel basket. Each piece was well coated with Honey Mustard and the sweetness from the honey is delicious. Despite the sticky coating, the crispiness of fried chicken still retained.

The Avocado Chicken Salad was appetizing. Simply loves its shredded chicken over the healthy greens creamy slices of Avocado and mixed salad. The cherry red tomatoes had given the salad dish a final touch with its striking red colour. I love the citrusy and refreshing dressing of the salad. The cheese also enhanced the taste too.

Smoked Salmond Salad was as refreshing. The zesty hints of lemon juice and refreshing house-made orange vinegarette sauce with a light sour taste make it very appetising.

Smoked Salmon Salad - $13.90

My jaw almost dropped when I had their plate of Crispy Fish & Fries laid on the table. The portion was impressive with a big piece of Fish deep fried. While many cafes had made use of the economical type of fish to cut down their cost, Jovis's serving was of quality. This main dish is served with vinegar mixed salad and fries.

Crispy Fish & Fries - $18 (Upgraded Truffle Fries)

We upgraded the meal with truffle fries at an additional cost of $3. The aromatic truffle fragrant from the fries as well as the cheese toppings made my Fish & Fries meal complete.

Jovis Chicken Chop is served with mixed salad and fries with the choice of black pepper or mushroom sauce. We opted for the latter. The Chicken Chop was well marinated and the flavours were good even without the additional sauce.

If you prefer the fried version of chicken, order their Chicken Cutlet. The chicken cutlet was well seasoned too with a crispy texture on the exterior. As we put the knife and cut it in half, we can see the meat's juiciness.

The Honey Glazed Fried Chicken was the upgraded version from Jovis Chicken Cutlet with an additional quarter waffle served with honey glazed.

Feel the taste of a home cook dish in the cafe with big chunks of potatoes and 2 big drumsticks soaked in the thick curry gravy.

There are hints of fragrant lemon grass and the spicy level was mild. 


Like other dishes, their portion was generous and this dish is well liked by both children and adults.

Cakes were daily ordered from their supplier. We have the Ondeh Ondeh Cake with alternating gula Melaka layers with sponge cake. It was good as it was not cloying.

Service was better than average. From the look at the dishes served, you can sense that every dish that doles out in the kitchen is made of love.

Besides that, there are free Wi-Fi and power plugs for work/study or socialising needs. What's more, they have board games, toys, books and magazines. The place is cosy and relaxing. It is a suitable place to perfect your date too. Not only that, the place is children-friendly too.
