I just had the chance to try it. They are also a specialty coffee shop, meaning that they specialise in only coffees. Hence limited food is sold. They don’t do cupcakes but they do other cakes such as the flour less chocolate cake which I got to try and like. They also do muffins and sandwiches, some of which are vegetarian. The ambience is a bit like Mister Close, small and welcoming.
I also sampled a mocha ($3.20). I wanted this to eat in but they gave it to me in a takeaway cup. I think I said eat in to them when they asked. The guy that did my mocha looked like he was half asleep. He could have said “sorry”. But he did offer to redo it again.
The coffee was a bit watery that not much artwork was there. But I did like the nutty and coffee taste of the mocha with a hint of chocolate. I was told that they do it in a syphron machine (this machine filters coffee to make it really geeky). I would have liked to be a bit more milky and a little bit more chocolate.
I went and bought cupcakes from Cupcake central across the road and they went perfectly with my mocha. I had a buy one get one free voucher from the Entertainment book and I used it today to sample black velvet and cookies and cream cupcakes and I liked them both.
The Asian lady was really attentive and really knowledgeable about the products. Kudos to her that let me try the cake and told me about the syphron machine and coffee blends.
I think Big Fil from Eat and be merry should visit as her favourite eggs and museli are sold here. Also Miss Adriennely might like this and Cupcake central across the hall
UPDATED: I did have a chance to try their cold drip coffee. This is really bitter and very strong. It does not have milk in it. It is nice in summer and spring, but just be careful. If you can’t sleep on a strong coffee like me, then better not have this. You’d be better off trying one of their mochas or smaller coffees.
