CAROTA CAROTA

"The ice cream and thick housemade cream cheese came together to make this affogato especially smooth and the aromatic espresso was just nice - it did not overpower the carrot cake taste."

BANANA FRENCH TOAST

"Lovely banana French toast topped with mascarpone cheese, raspberries and a scoop of ice cream on the side. It has a nice blend of sweetness and tartness and it is very different from the usual 'one-dimensional' taste of French toast that you usually find in cafes."
