Its nice to see that we have a lot more cafe choices these days other then the usual big names. And the person that you can be sure to rely on for the latest coffee joints is Gavin, who never fails to amaze me with the discoveries he made. I'm not a big fan of coffee, but the girlfriend and I decided to check out one of the earlier entrants to the cafe trend: Shots!
Located in the so-many-things-to-try Ann Siang Hill enclave, Shots served a neat range of coffee and light bites. The minimalist decor and quiet cliente was perfect for a Saturday afternoon with a good book or in my case, boring notes in hand.
Hazelnut Latte ($6.00), Tiramisu Latte ($6.00)
Seemed like both of us wanted something more than just regular Latte! As the base was smooth with bursts of coffee aroma, the girlfriend liked the distinct hazelnut flavour while I'm pretty satisfied with my tiramisu-tainted one and its sprinkling of cocoa powder.
Honey Baked Ham Fougasse ($11.80), Ham & Cheese Croissant ($5.80)
Frankly, I thought these were really overpriced. While both were decent and served warm, I really didn't fancy paying close to twenty bucks for something of minute portion and easily whipped up at home.
Bill for two was $29.60 with no additional taxes. With so many other interesting places to explore, it might be a long time before making a return trip. But if I do, at least I know that my afternoon will be well-spent with a good cuppa in one hand, and hopefully not with notes in the other!
