    The same people at Loysel's Toy, head over to Papa Palheta for some serious coffee tasting. You may even pick the beans you want, get them to ground it for you, so that you can pack it back home !

    Restauranteur uncle from Melbourne said that the double latte rivals some of the best cafe rated by the Melbourne Age recently. And he liked the drip Colombian, very smooth and balanced.

    Finally decent coffee in Singapore. Beats Starsucks anytime. The only downside in my opinion are the smokers outside. They should consider banning it.

    A whole world away from the bustling city. Setting is informal n paying for wat u wan is a uniquely personal touch!

    Ditch the 'bux, TCC, and all other wannabe coffee houses, this place is the real deal. Premium, fair trade, ecofriendly coffee at it's best.
