Tucked away at one end of Sylvia Park, this cafe beckons to the chocoholic with its carefully arranged rows of gourmet chocolates. Many a time have I fallen prey to the siren’s call while shopping, but on previous occasions, I usually managed to restrict myself to only a hot chocolate. Today, however, the new(?) menu removed any possibility of such prudence. There was now a tempting array of cakes, tarts, and waffles to choose from, accompanied with chocolate flakes, chocolate sauce, ice cream, and a Butlers chocolate. Obviously, I succumbed remorselessly.
I selected the Baileys cheesecake – which was good, if a bit small. The accompaniments went well with it, though the chocolate sauce was disappointingly watery. Their hot chocolate was rich and satisfying as always – I typically go for a simple dark hot chocolate, as the marshmallow and cookie varieties are a bit over-the-top for my taste. All hot chocolates come with a piece of Butlers chocolate of your choice, which is probably the main reason I usually end up here instead of Theobroma at the other end of the corridor. :)
