The café/ restaurant area was minimally furnished. It kind of reminded me of Delifrance.
As I was here during the afternoon, I got the High Tea Set.
Everything in the tea set was ok and nothing was disgusting. But I feel I could do without the duck pate canapé, meat balls and macaron.
They were ok, but I would prefer more scones or grilled tomato salad.
The macaron was blah. It was so tiny, the shell was neither crunchy nor chewy – it was kind of too thin to feel any texture and it was ganache filled. I prefer buttercream filled macarons.
The scones fall in the “good scone” category. The cream and jam was tasty too, but I think they didn’t give me Devonshire (pronounced like there-vern-sher) cream. The consistency was too liquefied, especially upon contact with the warm scone.
The tea was unmistakably lipton.
Their high tea set changes periodically. I wouldn’t mind going back to try out a different set when they change it.

Have visited the cafeé last Friday for dinner. Their mains are not so fantastic (including the pot of Earl Grey Tea).. But their cakes and soft serve was fantastic. Also, the ambience was lovely too :)
Had wanted to come here for sometime now and was going to meet my frend who is very into japanese thing so i suggested this place..
The place is amazingly pretty!! and the waitresses are mostly japs.. very gentle. =)
ANyway i wasnt hungry so didnt order food.. started with a mocha which is not recommended.. sorry im a coffee snob but the mocha tasted like chocolate milk! and umm.. the small latte art they try to do as u can see from the pict.. is not very impressive. Lol.
Ok next up, the tea my frend ordered.. earl grey i think.. was very prettily set up in a tray with milk and syrup.. so thats a plus point but the taste was so-so.. the sandwich she had looked delicious though! its a bacon sandwich.. actually i saw the array of sandwiched n i think i could possibly return to try.. it was a pity i wasnt hungry coz i saw other pple eating the desserts n they look delicious!
After 2 hours.. i had to order smthing... hehe.. so i indulged in a chocolate parfait which i must say its pretty worth the calories.. its chocolate ice cream with coco pops and corn flakes in it.. so the crunch makes the eating part fun and also makes u feel like guilty coz its cereal and not something more sinful. Oh and there were 2 chocolate truffles on top which was the cherry on the cake. Price is a little prciey esp for the quality of the coffee but other than that i have no complaints.
