Just popped in this morning for a caffeine fix as I've always walked past this place without actually trying the coffee itself. I ordered a caramel latte as I had a sweet tooth and I didn't want to heap in spoonfuls of sugar to ruin the coffee (although some may argue adding flavour to the coffee is wrecking the original taste of coffee itself, but I'm not here to discuss the science of flavours).
The 8 oz. coffee was a good size for me as coffee is a pretty strong diuretic for me and I didn't fancy the thought of stopping to find the toilet every 15 minutes. Like many fellow foodies have mentioned, the latte artwork is interesting, with cute animals and shapes to complement the coffee that they serve. I was given a bunny rabbit this morning, which went very nicely with the sweet coffee.
Despite the coffee being sweet, however, the sugary flavour did not hide the fact that the roast had a bitter taste to it. The taste became more pronounced as I left the coffee sitting at the table for a good 20 minutes. I personally enjoy a bitter brew (especially when drinking black coffee), but since this was a caramel latte and I liked my coffee a bit more milky and sugary, I thought a milder roast would've gone better with the milk and sugar and caramel taste.
Also, having watched a mid-morning bunch of tourists and Japanese expats patronise the cafe, it was very nice to sit in the serene environs and enjoy the coffee whilst smelling it at the same time. The service was prompt and professional and hopefully the new location will allow for more seating capacity.
One thing to note, however, was that even though the joint said they had wi-fi, I had difficulty connecting to the system. My mobile phone picked up the signal, hooked up to the network but the network didn't allow me to access the internet. It didn't bother me much, however it would've been nice to try out the wi-fi network wherever possible - after all I do appreciate saving up my data services for times when there is no wi-fi coverage.
