We were nearby the area and decided to take a slow walk over to check out this place which we had paddled past a few weeks ago when we went to Coney Island.
On a late Saturday morning, the cafe was quite crowded (I guess many were here for brunch), but there were still a few tables available, so we did not had to queue at all 🙂
We already knew what we wanted to order, gathering from online reviews (and offline reviews from friends) and placed our orders!
Our drinks came very quickly and food followed about 10 minutes later.
- Macaroni & Cheese ($13.80++): This was truly excellent! The macaroni was cooked to perfection, with a great balance of chewy-ness and firmness. The amount of mozzarella cheese was also just right, not overly salty and not too little. Perfect for 2 of us to share!
- Eggs Benedict with Smoked Salmon on Waffles ($13++): Crispy waffle and runny poached eggs, what else can we asked for?
- Hot Roasted Hazelnut Tea Latte ($6++): Wooo.. Very hazelnuttish, but we could not taste the tea, and it felt a bit diluted.
- Latte ($5.50++): Hubby thought this was pretty average, not bad but not memorable…
Service was not bad, and the staff were pretty fast and friendly despite of the crowd. This appeared to be a rather kids-friendly place too.
Note: They serve water, and I liked that the warm water here was truly warm! Do ask for their cute sharing plates too 🙂
