  • I was excited to go here. a big fan of both tea and coffee and it looked like a cool place to hang out. Went with my girlfriend and we ordered an iced latte and a honey and ginger tea. After going upstairs, the arrangement of furniture didn't really work. Only the thin cushions on the floor had tables and the chairs were lining the wall, not good for chatting. But that was fine, it looked somewhat comfortable for reading. The real disappointment were the drinks. My iced coffee was clearly a coffee made from granules and the coffee creamer (you could tell from the mud-brown colour). As for the honey and ginger tea; undrinkable! I just drank my coffee for the sake of having something cold, but the tea as absolutely horrible. The ginger was so spicy, it tasted like it had been brewing for a few hours. Not only that, there was definitely no honey to offset that bitter, spicy taste. Overall, given the quality of some of the other cafe's in LP, I would recommend spending your money elsewhere.
  • Great place to take a break and have a snack and drink! Staff is extremely friendly and welcoming. Loved the chocolate coconut shake! And the crepes are delicious.
