I like a little cafe with local regulars, or a cafe that just look so cute and inviting. This cafe was one of those.
The inside is small, with that very warm, cozy feeling. Not many tables, around 5 or 6, and the ones against the brick wall had bench seating on one side, and chair on the other side of the table. Interesting artworks on the wall, with large mirrors to create a vision of larger space within the small space.
I really loved the old decor, like the brick wall and white tile wall, most likely from the original structures. Had nice sweet seasonal decoration too, like the little fluffy “JOY” pillow.
We were here for some sweets and coffee. We had Latte and Macha Latte ($3.50 for small/each). They were really high quality, I don’t know what coffee bean they use, but whatever it was, I tell you it was so tasty! Very high quality. The Matcha Latte was really great also, you can really taste the matcha in it, unlike one of those fake, overly sweet kind. It was well made with real ingredients.
We got Peanut Butter Brownie and Blueberry Muffin to go with our lattes. I never had a peanut butter brownie, maybe a brownie with a hint of peanut butter flavor, but this one was a major dose of peanut butter. It was heavy, rich, very dense and sweet. It was a bit too sweet to me, but very tasty regardless. Good thing I had someone there with a sweet tooth to share this with. The muffin was good, not extraordinary, but good muffin with nice amount of blueberries in it. Fluffy, airy, sweet but not overly sweet, nicely baked.
Another thing that really caught my eye was this red and green item, which we were told as a Christmas Cookie. It was small and glittery and cute. So I ordered this one as well. As they were taking it out of the window showcase, they said that it is not good any more because they are no longer soft like it supposed to be. So they gave this one to us for free! Yes it was a bit hard, but it was still tasty, with the peppermint kiss chocolate on the top, and the cookie was nice. I could imagine how much better it would have been if we had it freshly baked.
The manager/owner (?) guy was really sweet and kind, and we felt very good in that warm & cozy atmosphere. They had some crepes on the menu, which we were not too hungry at that time to try them, but we would definitely go back the next time we are nearby for some more great coffee and some type of their crepes!
