My first review, please be nice

To be honest, I actually have no idea what to post first. But recently I went to a place which I think relatively unique. It’s called 27 Coffee and Pastry.

Disclaimer: All of the photos I took and published in this post are taken when the café’s construction and decoration is still in progress. So if you visit the place a while after this post online, the café might look different.

I went to this café in Ramadan, so I had no choice except going there at night. I’ll be frank, when I saw this café from the parking lot, it was not the best looking exterior in the world. But that was one of the time when the saying “don’t judge a book by it’s cover” applies.

The interior is cozy. Cozy enough to make me feel warm again after raining outside. I immediately ordered a drink, opened my laptop, plugged my charger to the power socket, and enjoyed the light music, and have a nice conversation with my friends.

 

The Place

Personally, I like the place. It’s a little small, but size isn’t everything. The decoration is vibrant with art. Either the old TV on the bar, a big painting on the wall, a wooden ornament, or curtains that made of beads. Even I’m quite sure that there weren’t any same tables in the café.

There were only four tables that I could count, which you can imagine how small the place is. The cashier, kitchen, pastry bar, and the coffee machine is in the separate room from the main tables. The light was not too bright, so you can hang, drink coffee, and having a conversation for a long time without hurting you eyes. In addition, there was a table at the terrace, if you prefer to drink your coffee outdoor.

Personally, I like the interior. It feels like I’m drinking coffee in someone’s home, if not mine.

The Food

I was hungry when I came in, and I was hoping that there would be food. And when I asked the barista, he said they only had Oreo Cheese Brownies and Cupcakes. But hey, that was totally my fault. The sigh did say “pastry”. After tried some, I’ve got to admit, both of the cakes were pretty good.

But if you want to hang out here, I suggest you fill your stomach somewhere else first

 

Beverages

There are several kinds of drink here. Most of them are coffee. And I don’t drink coffee (maybe somehow this will make me a credible reviewer for a coffee shop) but my friend tried it and it was great. The coffee beans were fresh and processed by a trained barista. And the beautiful latte art gave a nice touch to them.

I myself tried a cold Thai Tea and hot Green Tea Latte. And they were both great. I can really feel the spice in the Thai Tea, making it gorgeous. And for the Green Tea Latte, it was thick, rich, and not too sweet.

Convenience

With the purpose of being a cozy place for people to hangout and relax, 27 Coffee and Pastry sure knows what it’s doing. Light music was played through speaker in a corner of the room, there were electrical slot in several places, and there was also a Wi-Fi you can use (although when I was there, I couldn’t connect)
