Soothing place to enjoy a cup of creamy matcha latte on a gloomy Sunday with a good friend.
The line was short but it did take a while for the barista to take my order. Usually I'll get irritated but he was juggling his duty as a cashier while making drink orders and keeping everything around him tidy at the same time. I was pretty impressed. He came back to let me know that he ll be right with me while he was busy running around.
Matcha green tea (not coffee) - loved it! Subtle bitterness with a strong flavor of green tea. The drink was very creamy and the temperature was just right.
The popular almond latte- my friend loved it. The almond flavor wasn't overwhelming.
I was planning on getting a pastry but I decided not to because I passed this adorable crepe shop next door, Mapaya, on the way to the coffee shop lol
- parking available in the residential area
- get their special drinks if you love sweet coffee like me
- they do take credit cards
- be patient with the barista
- check out the crepe shop for food next doorRecommended for:

This is, hands down, some of the best coffee I have ever had. We tried the siphon coffee here, and not only was it delicious, it was also so much fun watching the coffee actually being made in front of our eyes. It looks like a chemistry experiment. Also, tried the almond essence latte - another fantastic treat. Very unique place, definitely will be going back more than once.
