Cass wanted to visit this place because she loves matcha and of course, the photos being shared by everyone looks super awesome.
We visited this place on a weekend and it was very crowded. The limited seats were all taken up and the sharing table was almost full. Fortunately, a short wait later, we managed to get a couple of seats and we ordered 1 drink and a slice of cake to share.
The drink was exquisite. If I remember correctly, it was a Hojicha drink and it was super rich and the bitterness simply matched with the milk perfectly. The cake though was just so-so. I would give it a miss if I visit this place again.
One thing I have to comment about is the staff. They all seemed very grump and upset. No one seemed to smile and everyone was just “doing their job” in a seemingly unhappy manner. It was quite off-putting to have a staff member take your order without a smile and give you your drink and cake without a smile too. Hopefully they could improve on this.
Another issue was the seating. The space is definitely japanese inspired with minimalist decor but during peak hour, there is so much space but no seats. When it is quiet with less people, such spaces add beauty but when there are many customers, maybe they can consider adding more temporary seating
Overall, for authentic Matcha and Hojicha, I would for sure recommend this place. I’m actually quite excited to try more of their drinks as well.
