Just The Place’s menu is quite extensive and we tried their Seafood Marinara ($22.90), as well as, their French Toast ($8.90). The former had spaghetti cooked til al dente, with fried fish fillets, squids and prawns, tossed in their spicy Marinara sauce. The seafood was fresh and tasty but the fried fish fillets was too salty on our day of visit.
On the other hand, the French Toast featured pan-fried eggy Brioche drizzled with maple syrup, berry compote and was served with vanilla ice cream. This was really good as the sweetness was neutralized by the refreshing berry compote. We wouldn’t mind waking up to this for breakfast or ending our meal on a satisfying note with this French toast. Just The Place also serves meat platters and pizzas and we might just head back to try these since we had a pleasant experience dining there for the first time.

"For dessert goers, try out their beautiful rendition of the classic French Toast (up), topped with mixed berries and a scoop of high quality vanilla ice-cream placed creatively on an egg holder. However, it is slightly on the pricier side considering the quantity.
If you're looking for a more decent meal, have a go at their Eggs Benedict - English muffins tiooed with nicely poached eggs and hollandaise sauce, salad and a choice of either bacon or smoked salmon. Their hollandaise sauce was slightly thin and watery, whilst more vinaigrette can definitely be use to enhance the salad.
All in all, Just the Place is a nice place with air-conditioned and al-fresco dining accompanied by an unobstructed view of the sea. It has a nice toilet too, considering the fact that the nearest toilet is probably five minutes walk away. However, the service line was very, very slow and unresponsive. In fact, on that day we went, only a quarter of the seats are utilised, yet the waiting time exceeded 30 minutes - a turn off for anyone who might just want to grab some bites in-between cycling time (if they rent the bikes). Nonetheless, I will definitely be back for their other offerings, but probably after trying out the other cafes and restaurants, if I happen to be in Punggol. Damn far sia."
