Been meaning to blog about this place for a while now. It's been a couple of months since this place open and the hype is still there but really is it worth the visit? I visited the place in October first and the 2nd time was earlier today afternoon. If you are planning to visit the cafe, you have to come during day time. No point coming at night because the lighting won't be good if you are planning to take pictures. So far I have never heard of anyone visiting the cafe for the food, so far its just for pure photography session with friends or family.
No doubt the interior of the restaurant is very pretty. All decorated with hello kitty and pink walls. Even the deserts, tables, cups, tissue and your chairs have hello kitty cartoon on it. If you are a Hello Kitty fan, this would be heaven for you.
Shall blog about my visit today first. I was there for an event, which the blogpost will be up soon. We had tea and some snacks during the event. Everything was placed very beautifully and everything did look exquisite. But when it was time for the tasting, it was nothing above average. Taste is practically the same as any other place you would get your coffee or dessert. It wasn't bad, nor was it amazing, it was just alright. Apparently the tea set for two cost RM 99.50 and I did see quite a few tables ordering it. FYI there were a lot of kids and mummies there, maybe it was due to school holiday or maybe they all just wanted to try it out. Definitely more girls than guys in the cafe, maybe 6:1 ratio?
The next set of pictures will be from my first visit in October. It was at Sunday night and the pictures didn't turn out that well. Anyways I went there after an event with a friend because I wanted to check out the place and see whether it was worth the hyped. I think we got there around 8.30pm. I wanted to try their cakes but they told me they were sold out of cakes and only had desserts left. Still couldn't believe they ran out of cakes, but I ordered their mocktail drink and my friend ordered their orange juice. I had a Strawberry Margarita which was RM 17.90 while my friend's Orange Juice was RM 13.90. The size of the drinks were really small and I guess we were paying for the place more than our drinks. But it was a good experience.
At that night, there were a lot of group of young people along with families visiting the cafe. Would definitely say that this cafe is a place to visit with friends or family but only recommended to visit once in your life. Good place to just experience the hype and to join everyone else taking pictures. There wasn't a table that night that did not take pictures, even the table next to us took about 10-15 pictures of themselves being in the cafe along with what they ordered.
Now in November 2015, they do serve food which are mainly western dishes from smoked duck, pasta, pumpkin soup, lamb and etc. I would say their food is priced around RM 15-RM 35 (per pax). Also the crowd depends on the time you arrive, if it's night time, there won't be much of a crowd. But if you do go in the afternoon, expect to wait for a while
Any of you visited the place? What do you think? Do you think I'm going over board? Would love to hear your experiences. haha
