Ended work today around 4pm at Clarke Quay area and went over to Chinatown to meet up with hubby to enjoy the buzz of the festive season with only 2 more weeks to Chinese New Year! 🙂 We walked till our legs were aching and got ourselves 1.8kg worth of Taiwanese fruit jelly. Together with a laptop, they were too heavy and we decided that we needed some coffee therapy!
Did a quick search of cafés nearby on our Foursquare app and decided on Group Therapy. This cafe was tugged on the second floor along a long stretch of restored shop houses along Duxton Road, and we almost missed the small entrance had it not been a tip on Foursquare :p The door knob was actually an ice cream scoop nailed to the door… Haha!
The deco is very cafe-like, with some corners tugged with sofas and big tall tables lining up in the middle of the premise. Ambiance is cosy with soft music playing in the background, and the soothing lighting, together with sunlight from the windows made the place a very nice place for small gatherings.
It wasn’t super crowded yet at 5pm, but we were given a 2-seater near the door. It was ok, just that it was kinda warm…
Hubby ordered the Roasted Almond Latte ($6.50), while I decided on the Jasmine Silver Needle ($5), and we shared a Steak and Cheese Pie ($16).
While waiting, we went to the restroom, and I must say, that toilet door reminded me a bit of Bhutan, and the water basin, which was basically a metal container, was very old-school, interesting deco!
The latte was quite decent, but a bit sweet. The tea bag was good for 2 cups and I enjoyed the clear, light flavour. The pie was chokeful of beef but not very cheesy. It came with a side salad and crispy chips that weren’t too bad.
Service was quite prompt and the staff were very friendly, and we look forward to coming back again sometime soon… Hopefully the air conditioning will be stronger the next time :p
