The Lightwood by Mues

The Lightwood By Mues is a chic cafe that we have discovered recently via our pedals. The cafe has a minimalistic design with natural lights flowing in via the glass ceiling. With plants around, the ambience and environment was cosy.

Just right before the entrance, there is a little garden with a gravel pathway suitable for photography as well as a place to chit-chat.


Calling the Coffee Lovers! Skip the usual Espresso and Mocha in exchange of their Dirty Latte for a coffee fix.

The drink is Instagram-worthy with a Combination of Cream and milk topped with espresso but does not take too long to snap your perfect picture for this two distinct layer might merge together in no time.

How about a plate of breakfast meal? A combination of scrambled egg, feta cheese, chicken sausage, ham pepperoni, sauteed mushroom, grilled potato, feta cheese, baked beans, and greens with the strongly advocated sourdough Focaccia


I could not take my senses away from the Chicken Confit Spaghetti since the moment it had landed on our table. The texture of the Spaghetti was of Al Dente perfection, tossed in Olive Oil, Garlic and Chilli Flakes. Its a tad on the spicy side. Whereas the crispy skin on the Boneless Chicken Thigh Confit was simply delicious and aromatic in herbs. The pasta also comprised of Cherry Tomato.

This is part of the reason why we are here. Duck Confit (aka Confit de Canard) is a French Dish. Dry Brine duck whole leg with herbs and slow cooking for hours. The meat was then slowly poached until it is fork-tender. The skin was crispy and duck confit is packed full of aromatic herbs with sides like potato, carrot, peach compote and greens.

What a sweet ending we had with Dutch Baby Pancake. This dessert requires a 30 min wait. This signature dessert is also known as a German Pancake topped with Berries and Fruits, Vanilla Ice Cream and Honey. If you are craving some savoury desserts after a meal, this is a perfect choice.

The food standard is above average and the service from the staff is not only courteous and filled with passion from the server. Since we have only conquered a few items on the menu, I would not mind revisiting the place for other items.
