The interior of the cafe, on first glance, was quite interesting. They wrote out their menu in true hipster style on the cupboards, and the counter was surrounded with all sorts of beautiful tarts and pies. We also received a warm "Welcome!!" when we stepped in, and it seemed to make the long trek to the cafe worth it.
We sat there waiting for a menu, but none came. We then tried to catch the eye of a staff by waving, but while some briefly glanced around, none seemed particularly interested in helping us. I had to resort to google searching Drips' menu. After a while, we noticed a chalkboard hanging directly above another customer's table, and what seemed like the menu was written on it in marker. I don't know if they were taking the hipster thing a bit too far, but we were quite bemused (and a little irritated) that we had to stand awkwardly right in front of other customers to read the menu. We had a Green Tea Latte and a Cinnamon Pear tart.
The cinnamon pear tart was quite good. The cinnamon went amazingly well with the crunchy pear. I'm not usually a fan of cinnamon, but this was pretty nice. The crust, however, was too thin and there was way too little of it. Not in a "lesser pastry, more topping" kind of little, but really, a strange lack of base. Wish there was a little more pastry. Overall, it seemed a little pricey because it was quite small.
I spent $12 per person.
