The coffee program is by JJ Beans Coffee with espresso-based drinks such as mochas, espressos, lattes, matcha lattes, and so forth.
The cafe had plans to be an upscale boutique venue for special events on evenings and weekends outside using the courtyard space. Chef Zhou mentions that there might be potential for popups and small scale events in the future.
You can order ahead online for pickup via Ritual. The cafe is currently open for takeout with 3-4 dine-in seats and outdoor seating in the courtyard.
Edit: September 20, 2020. David (@pickydiner) and I decided to try out their Egg Toast options this past week and they were very good! We tried the following:
Hawaiian Luau featuring Spam, scramble eggs, cheddar, crispy seaweed, kewpie mayo
Prawn Star featuring Poached prawns, scramble eggs, cheddar, lemon caper aioli
Nice, light and fluffy scrambled eggs and soft toast. I liked that the sandwiches were not too heavy. The prawns were pretty bouncy.
The cafe is currently is open 8 am - 3 pm Monday to Friday.
