Battered Tilapia Fish and Chips with a strawberry banana smoothie. The fish was fresh and the fries were tasty though I felt that the crust of the fish could have been softer. Service was great and ambiance is excellent as always

Excellent ambience for reading or working on something. Order their flat white, it was simple and good cuppa. Personally, find it to be on the nutty side, mellow, not too bitter or acidic.

A tad too salty for my liking but the rice cake was a welcome touch.

This is one of their weekend specials, the Emmental. It's supposed to have emmental cheese, but honestly I didn't taste any? 😅 The omelette is stuffed with a piece of lean bacon, and comes with two slices of toast (I chose multi grain). Its served with a salad of pico de gallo, sour cream and smashed avocado.

I love the omelette. Super fluffy and perfectly seasoned. The egg is just set inside but still slightly oozy. So simply done but well-executed. And the flavors of the slightly spicy pico de gallo with the tanginess of the sour cream. They make excellent coffee and juices too.

The ambience is really chill, with choice of either sitting on the squishy sofa or table and there's excellent wifi. It's just fuss-free food with good coffee. Just not sure if the food is worth the price ($19.95 for this plate), but my dining partner seems to really like this place, so I always end up coming here to enjoy a lazy afternoon.

This is so delicious! The taste was bursting in my mouth. I like they let us choose brown rice or Japanese rice. And yes I choose brown rice. I thought it will be those typical “red rice mix white rice” type. But no, it’s really BROWN RICE. So tasty! It was well mixed. Totally worth the $16!

We chose to sit outdoors as the cafe was waaaaaay too quiet (even public library also noisier lol).
