The Vietnamese Iced Coffee (Rs.400) comes served with two layers of condensed milk and coffee.
Make sure to really stir the layer of condensed milk to bring out the flavour. However, the rich coffee flavour didn't come through as much on account of the drink being watered down by its heavy ice cube content.
The stirring would make for a cool boomerang though, so either way you get something good out of it.
They grind Hansa coffee beans (on-site) which provided a rich aromatic experience overall.
The Spicy Pineapple Chicken Waffle (Rs.600) is served with a helping of sloppy chicken, loaded with ketchup and laid on top of a slightly undercooked waffle.
The waffle was sweet which is a perk, but the pineapple took the spice away and made it taste even sweeter.
Was the dish as spicy as we'd have liked it? Not really.
Judging by how sweet the waffle was, we suggest you opt for the dessert waffles as opposed to their savoury counterpart.
The Death by Chocolate Cake (Rs.500) is a bit heavy so make sure you have room to put it all. The icing was a bit hard and the layers are not as smooth as one would expect.
Flavour wise it was extremely sweet and did justice to chocolate, but overall it had me craving for a more moist cake base.
The furniture is mostly polished wood with a few interesting statement pieces strewn about. There are a bunch of coffee-table books in case you want to do a bit of reading and they even have the entire GoT series if you're up for spending a few hours there.
They've got a guitar and everything, so if you're one of the more musically talented humans, you get to strum away.
With their prompt and friendly staff just a call away, you are bound to be in a stress-free zone while you are there.
