I came back to Coffee Monster with a few of my friends to just kill some time and enjoy some coffee and cake. I came here about a year ago and I remember they had good coffee but the cakes and desserts were unimpressive. I do like to revisit restaurants once in a while to see if there are any improvements, so it was the perfect time to do so.
They have beautiful wooden tables inside this cafe so it does have a nice rustic atmosphere.
I noticed there is a time limit of 1.5 hours now, but since it wasn’t too busy today, I don’t think the staff enforced it. Not sure about other days though.
Once you put your order in, you get an electronic device that buzzes when your order is ready. The service at the cafe is ok, but not very warm.
The girls got Spanish lattes, which is a regular latte with sweet condensed milk. They tasted great.
I ordered a cappuccino and it was nice and frothy on top. Their coffee is pretty good.
Matcha tiramisu looked good but once we took a bite into it, the top and the sides were dry like they have been sitting in the fridge for some time.
Overall, similar feelings as the last visit a year ago. Good coffee, but the desserts are subpar and not very fresh. You can definitely skip the cakes and just get coffee or tea.
