10/11/2013 – Although this place opened earlier than Brawn & Brains (the place to get my coffee boost if I’m around the area), I have not visited this place until today. Opened along one of the HDB flats at Old Airport, the whitish exterior is sure to arouse people especially drivers (it is facing a T-junction)
The Cappuccino ($4.50) is thick and has the right amount of milk added.
The Flat White ($4.50) is rather thick and has the right amount of milk added to it. I would prefer this over the Cappuccino for its milder use of espresso, yet maintaining its thickness of the coffee.
The Blossom ($5.50) is a rose cake with raspberry cream cheese and caramelised pistachios, topped with a raspberry. Being one of their best sellers, this will not disappoint. The rose taste was rather mild tasting, although this was covered by the raspberry cream cheese, which tasted sweet and creamy. It is also rather soft.
If you are around the Old Airport area, this place is a great and quiet alternative to get a cup of coffee (the other being Brawn & Brains, which, in my opinion, offers the best coffee to date)
