ReStore Living

ReStore Living has been in my list of cafe to go for a very long time. Finally, after having my lunch and harboring zero plans for the rest of the day, we decided to head to ReStore Living for killing my sweet-tooth craves!!

It's a pretty long and narrow shop space... I do have a feeling of being too restricted in my movements due to tight gaps between tables.

They do have a lot of furniture on sale, but prices may bring a shock to you! At least it did for us :P One of the things that caught my attention is this erm.. I don't know... maybe an antique calculator?

They only have 3 desserts on rack, which are Dark Chocolate Tart ($6.80), Creme Caramel ($6.80), and Lemon Bundt Cake ($5.80) topped with snow glaze and served with freshly whipped cream and strawberry. They have mains too, but we gave that a miss since we are here for desserts only!

And... my tastebud seem to be "eyeing" on Lemon Bundt Cake! Haha.. Looks so-so, but our first mouth of it caught us off guard! Taste of lemon is strong, but no worries about being sour or whatsoever. This definitely gets us looking forward to the highlight, which is their waffle!

Tah-Dah!!! Caramel Banana ($9.80) served with sliced bananas, homemade salted caramel, topped with icing sugar and freshly whipped cream. Waffle is crispy from the outer, and soft to the inner. Not forgetting the salted caramel, it will definitely make your eyes go "woah" with surprise!

Another waffle! Berry Good ($9.80) served with sliced strawberries and blueberries, topped with icing sugar and freshly whipped cream. This on the other hand, is inferior. Waffle is as good as the former, but taste so much more normal... A thing to add on: the berries are not sour, which makes us finish both waffles up with pleasure :)

A place to sit back reading some magazines, while enjoying some drinks and pastries. If you have a bit more money to spare, you may consider the "antique" furniture which most has a price tag bind to it. The prices do shocked us though.

Nonetheless, with other dessert shops along the same stretch, or maybe even units away, competition can be really stiff, I guess... But I do believe ReStore Living will be a place liked by people such as interior designers :) Noise level can be a little high due to its tight spaces, but if you come at the correct time, the cozyness will set you resting your butt there and typing away on your keyboard!

If you are looking for a place for your OOTD takes, right at the other end of the cafe, there's a door that lead you to the alley for some oldie walls as background :)
