the café


i think my friend & i were the last persons to know about this cafe...
couple weeks ago, my friend said she read about this place for coffee and tea with really nice deco...
she couldn't remember the exact address, so we were wandering on the street...

just about when we were to give up, there it was, standing right in front of us.
as soon as i saw the deco, i fell in love with the place.
i love the color theme, i love the pieces of furniture, i love the little zakka here and there, i love the setting..... i love the flowers and the little *worn out* looking vases....
we asked for a table for two, but no empty tables...
while waiting for seats, we went to the clothes section.
i knew about this brand as i have seen it at different places before but haven't actually been inside.

THEN!
we found this little corner selling ZAKKA!!! yay!
i must admit we behaved a bit crazy.... the sales lady followed us around quite closely!
but we were excited by what we saw:
brown wax paper bags, stamps, candles, stationary, etc....
they even have cavallini stamps!!! and even the one that i have been hunting for: birds!
i should have waited for a bit longer, then i wouldn't have to order online and pay for the shipping!
there was only one box and devil me *deviled* my friend into getting it! hahahah....
in addition to the two pieces of zakka in the picture above, i got couple other items...
i LOVE these other two items! will take pictures of them later...

then, we were told a table was ready for us... just in time for us to chill out!
everything in the menu looks yummy!
it was around 4pm that day, just had lunch and not dinner time yet...
but i wanted to order this and that: pasta, salad, toast....
my friend was quite scared..... so i had to trim down to just the toast.... but she promised that she would accompany me to go back at another time to try out the other dishes.... hehehehe...

there was also quite a variety of coffee and drinks...
i ordered a green tea chocolate coffee....
it was yummmyy but the only thing was.......
my mouth was all GREEN afterwards.....
hahahahha.....

i will surely go back again....
but not with somotu
and she will surely go back with me (as she promised) but not with her pineapple...
hahahaha....
cuz these other halves are not into cafe/coffee/tea....
they don't know what they are missing! ha!

p.s. while searching for this brand, i came across this.
quite stylish!
