Right from its door steps, it has already created a rustic feel with vintage furniture and simple bronze coloured door frame.
If not for the hot weather, I might just sit at this "alfresco" area and watch the afternoon go by!
I really liked how they pay attention to the details. The bike stands at its doors, as well as benches are functional, yet decorative.
The cafe philosophy. Interesting!
As I was there for the entire afternoon to their closing time, I tried to avoid being a hogger by sitting at one corner of this communal table. In fact, I stayed so long only for the crowd to leave so I could get some nice shots of the cafe.
I like this layout, really cosy and photogenic.
Its dark yellow lights gave a very relaxed ambience to the place and it makes a perfect place to catchup with friends or enjoy good food with your date.
As usual, I ordered a Cafe Latte and though it is priced at average, I thought it came in a pretty small size. However, the taste made up for it. It was smooth and had a roasty after taste.
Later in the afternoon I ordered a Cheesie Toastie with Marmite and Poached Eggs. The toast met my expectations and the marmite spread was really nice. The salad was nice too. Overall, I wouldn't say it is a must try, but this is is enough for you to get by tea time!
Lastly, an Iced Chocolate! This is one drink which I would rave about! I haven't really found any place which sells real good Iced Chocolate before Penny University. The chocolate sauce was thick, yet not too gooey. After mixing with the milk, it formed a really nice rich chocolatey flavour. It taste fuller than chocolate milk, and carries the smoothness of a chocolate shake. Really delicious!
