NEW GEM AT EAST COAST
march 5th, 2015

More options for our sweet palates!

Chanced upon this new cafe while driving pass it the other day, did some research on it and what attracted me to try it was their pretty blossom waffles! I've seen round, heart, even snowflake waffles but never a floral waffle in typical cafes before, and I thought since it's so close to my place, why not give it a try!

“because new is always good"

Was there on a weekday during its non-peak hour and it's no surprise that we were the only customers there. The cafe just opened for about a month or so and not many have blogged or published on their social media platforms yet. It's quite underrated thus I recommend it's a good time to visit it before it gets too popular in future! I personally love the place and its simple dessert offerings!

Living up to its name, the cafe has kept things simple with its minimalistic decorations. Spacious, white, wooden furniture. Really, it's pretty much fuss-free with nothing to be excited about, but one thing that impresses is the humility and good service attitude of their staff which made me feel like home upon entering. It's very important especially for a small start-up cafe like theirs. I enjoyed my time there over some sweet nothings.

Menu's pretty limited, simple like I mentioned above. After all, good food should never be too complicated. The cafe doesn't serve any all-day breakfast nor real food for lunch or dinner, think just coffee, tea and desserts (like their daily bakes) and of course the speciality blossom floral waffles with Gelato/Sorbet. They have normal shaped waffles but of course, since I was there for the floral waffles, I ordered that with a scoop of dark Belgium chocolate gelato!

"Did you know, psychologists have proven waffles taste better when they look prettier?" Well, I'm the psychologist...

It proved to be a great choice! Not only were the waffles pretty looking, the taste was up to my standards! Not too sweet nor buttery, but rather it was crispy (yay my favourite type!) and light! It came with a perfect combination of chocolate sauce and lovely strawberries and blueberries. You could opt for the whip cream as well but I decided not to have them. As for the gelato, my dark chocolate was not too sweet, just the way I liked it to be. They have a special "Guess This" flavour, and it turned out to be Cherry Tomato! How special but not my cup of tea, hahaha!
