We were somewhere in the area, thus my friend drove us down since I've been wanting to check this place out even though I'm not a coffee person. The only reason why I drink my coffee is when I need my caffeine to stay awake. Oops.
For first timers like me, it can be a little confusing finding your way and even ordering. The main entrance is in the back alley and when you step through the main entrance, there's a little strip of al fresco area. To which, when you walk to the end, you open a door to see two doors. One on your left and one on your right. And if you got a little distracted by the crowd and a little fascinated with the place (like me, again. Haha), you wont realise it's the door on the right which you need to go through to order your drinks. So luckily I've my friend. =p The room behind the door on the left is the roasting room.
There's no menu, and we ordered:-
- The latte was fragrant and nowhere bitter. I was able to finish it without adding any sugar.
It's definitely a place for good coffee and warm service. Note, coffee only. No food is served here. But it can get tricky if one is coming in a big group. And parking can be a problem too.
Papa Palheta works on a tipping system, so please tip with conscience! It was kinda sad to see a couple paying just $5 for two cups of coffee. And you know they know they're underpaying cause the half of the couple who went to pay had a reluctant and guilty face. (^^lll)
