Great coffee

Interesting coffee joint – entrance is via a back lane, you walk past a few scattered seats in an open courtyard and go through door on right to the café.  Seating in café is limited.  We had latte and cappuccino.  My personal favourite is the latte – smooth and balanced.  The coffee flavor and aroma came through and was not overwhelmed by the milk.  House roast was so well blended that there is no need for sugar.  Couldn’t resist picking up a bag of house roast (S$15).  By the way, Papa Palheta’s policy is that patrons drop whatever amount they feel that the coffee is worth in a glass jar on the counter.   Definitely one of the better coffee places in town.  Parking is extremely limited though.

I find my way to visit this place I read so much about but it is a disappointment. Here are my comments:

1) The tall black coffee was served in a transparent glass w/o handle; instead folded tissue paper was used to wrap around it. The tall black coffee is almost as strong as espresso. I thought it shouldn't be that strong.

2) As a place that sell coffee only, I expect their staff should be quite knowledgeable to provide good advice about coffee. When I asked about a package of coffee beans, the answer I had is: "Oh that is for espresso machine." I am not an expert in coffee, but I still find the answer a quite weird.

3) If not for its inconsistent service, I may not voted "Not Recommended" for this place. For all customers before me upon making payment, the staff at the counter will acknowledge with a thank you. I think this is a standard thing to do. But I was like a transparent customer to that staff despite I did look up to that staff when putting the money in the box. She has no response at all, just looking at me with a blank face. I walked out regretted that I had paid so much. Later that day, I bought things at neighbourhood stores for $1.8 and $2.5 only, both cashiers acknowledged with a thank you when least expected.

(note: no price for coffee, payment is by tipping)

It's slightly more challenging for those who're unfamiliar with the roads and around the vicinity so make sure you have your GPS with you!

Thankfully the place wasn't packed on a Sunday afternoon and my bf & I had no frills in settling down with our latte within minutes. First timers may get a little confused and helpless especially when there's no menu or any pricings - Papa Palheta works on a tipping basis!

I don't usually drink coffee but since there's just coffee and coffee only, I opted for Latte and love it! Love that I don't have to add anything and it's purely good on its own.

Papa Palheta will definitely come to my mind if I ever have to suggest where's good for a nice cuppa warm coffee but I personally won't specially make a trip down since it's a little out of the way.
