A little on the pricey side but decent quality food

I loved the vibes and ambience of the place. Went with my girls and we spent a lazy afternoon there. The Truffle fries was not bad, not sure why other reviewers said there was no truffle.

It is a little on the pricey side for some of the finger bites and drinks but overall we had a good time. Service was so so, but I guess it was cos they were busy. Would come back again anyway, good fun vibes!!!

Firstly, no service charge and secondly the food is good! We ordered truffle fries, combo burger and chocolate waffle with ice cream. I must say the chocolate waffle is really good. Although the wait is quite long (around 15mins), the waffle is make of chocolate mix and in between there is chocolate sauce and by topping it with chocolate ice cream it makes it so chocolaty and most important not too sweet. It is perfect for chocolate lovers. However, I must say the truffle fries doesn't taste truffle and all the cheese sprinkled on top makes the whole restaurant smell of cheese when the dish is served.

The ambiance is good in the cafe with window seats. When I went it was not crowded so the food was served quite quickly. They have a great variety of drinks and even though their hot cocoa was tooo sweet for me, I LOVED THEIR TRUFFLE FRIES. I would go back just for that!
