Seriously, just look at the richness of that cream coming out of that gigantic puff. We actually came here 2 times and both times, the cream puffs were sold out. Utterly disappointed, we decided to come during their opening hour one day and was almost disappointed again but fortunately, the chef said they were preparing it and we could have it if we were willing to wait. After buying it, we could not wait to sink our teeth into it. The coolness of the cream, crispiness of the outer layer and mild softness of the puff made it a complete package.
We did visit this place again another day with friends for some coffee and the coffee was just as great as the puff. What I feel this place is lacking is the friendliness of the staff. Usually at cafes, a lasting impression is created by exceptional staff who are either really professional or very friendly. Over here, we were just greeted with a hello and no smiles; all 3 times that we visited. So it kind of a put off I might say. Hopefully they do improve in their level of service because OMG, this cream puff.
Overall, great coffee, great puffs; yet to try the food.
