Read a lot in 8 Days and Home & Décor about this café. They are apparently famous for their interesting decors with quirky wall designs, unique chairs, cups and all. If I don’t remember wrongly, they are opened by 3 guys who used to work in the creative industry. Half of this café is a café. DUH. The other half is actually a hair salon [Called Hairloom]. We didn’t get to see their hairstylist in action as we were there at 9pm merely for a quick bite. Interesting decors.
Food wise, the coffee that he tried is not great. But the green tea cupcake [they have a nicer name for it but I can’t remember] is surprising good. With just one bite, you can tell it is lovingly crafted by their Pâtissier unlike the typical cupcakes you get from Jiffy or Betty. The service was utterly pleasing as well. The owner took initiative to bring a stool for my bag [Not a Chanel or a Prada] and asked if I would like some plain water to go along with my cupcake and if I wanted it warm or cold. Awwww. A great chill-out and catch-up place with your friends.
