We felt like we stepped back in time upon entering this place 😮
Very nostalgic decorations, oldies playing, plus the dim yellow lighting, time seemed to have come to a standstill at this founded in 1981 cafe. Service charge and GST did not exist here too! Oh, and only cash accepted, just like the good old days.
We had to order and pay first, before picking any bar counter seat of our fancy. Things were done nice and slow, and our items came one by one, with the staff just passing the item over the counter to us when ready, with a smile. We could also watch them prepare our food and drinks since it was really an open concept; there are no glass windows separating the customers and the stove. One could also browse the available magazines while having a drink. Here were what we tried:
- Apple Crumble Pie ($6.80): Oohhhhhh.. This was a delicious choice that hubby made! We loved that the thin apple slices was slightly sour and sweet, and still had a light bite to it.
- Cafe Latte ($5.50): Without latte art, this simple glass of latte was very strong and bitter, but it was good!
- Cookies and Cream Milkshake ($6.90): G actually highly recommended the milkshake here, so I decided against the yoghurt shake and opted for this instead. Thick and creamy, we quite enjoy it. Couldn’t say if it was the best, because we did not have much experience with milkshakes.
