Cafe Cakes on Chompster
Pacman and I finally made our way to Cafe Cakes after walking the dog this morning. We ate, she waited in the car :) For those of you that are driving, there's parking on Aldrich street behind Cafe Cakes. Cafe Cake certainly lived up to it's reputation. I haven't been to the old location but the the new place was really bright with lots of windows. It reminded me of cute little cafes in Asia.
Note: If you look at the large sized image on flickr you can actually read the menu.
When we got there, it was fairly busy. I absolutely had to try the caramel milk tea while Pacman got the Cafe Au Lait (how boring right?!?). The milk tea was really delicious, and a nice change from boring ol Chai at Starbucks. It had hints of caramel which reminded me of Creme Brulée. Perfect for afternoon tea!
We also got the Curry Chicken Panini Sandwich. The bread wasn't the typical panini bread but it was tasty nevertheless. The sandwich was also unique since the curry used was the sweeter Japanese curry. Very delicious overall!
Looks good doesn't it?
Of course since this is Cafe Cakes, we had to finish off with cakes. We got the Strawberry Shortcake and a Chocolate Cake (I forget the name). The shortcake was yummy! The strawberries were sweet and the cake was light without too much sugar, just the way I like it. The chocolate cake reminded me of Blackforest cake since it had berries in it. We devoured it too quickly to figure out what exactly was in there! Ooopsie.
The owner, Noriko, was really sweet and allowed us to take photos for my blog :) I'm always impressed by entrepreneurs, and she sure has a lovely place. Thanks Noriko!

Yes yes yes! I want to try the Strawberry Latte next time.
