Seeing as many reviewed this positively, I excitedly made my way down today.
Small cozy cafe sharing space with crust pizza. I walked past this by accident and had to retrace my steps. It's not particularly charming or relaxing in terms of ambience with instrumentals in the background, fairly ok if you are in the area. In sure others will disagree with me, given that the cafe was bustling despite it being a weekday afternoon.
I had the French toast with caramelised bananas. Utter disappointment. Brioche was fluffy, presentation was very nice with smears of cream and caramel, but bananas are NOT caramelised at all. Toast was soggy (not what you'd expect it to be which is slight crisp outside). They dipped the toast in a cinnamon egg mixture which helped to add excitement and flavor, but unfortunately resulted in a coarse, almost bitter outside.
The liberal dusting of icing sugar, while very pretty, flew everywhere due to the overhead fans of the cafe.
Ultimately, unimpressive. While I'd pop by for coffee next time, I certainly won't be returning for the food.
