Cool cups and dainty foam art aside, their Ficardie sure is a gr8 cuppa.
-
Its taste profile is mainly that of a sweet fruitiness, mixed with roasted bitterness, and finished with a slight tingle of acidity. The blend is one that's milky with good mouth feel, such that it just sensually caresses your tongue.

Apartment is a gorgeous cafe that nails the minimalistic look flawlessly; every detail from the decor to crockery carries an eye-catching elegance.
-
I'd been delighted with their ever-changing coffee selection on all my visits. The coffees are always full of flavour and a pleasure to slowly sip on, whilst you revel in the serene atmosphere. I especially adore their fruity coffees, like this Agaro Duromina filter coffee that I had a while back.

And right they are. It has been firmly perched at the top of my rankings, and their standards have been consistent.

Many cafes like to dress up pancakes with ornate toppings. But here, simplicity is king as the simple blueberry sauce delivers a heavenly blend of sweetness and zestiness.
-
Fluffiness is of paramount importance in pancakes, and these are impossibly soft and fluffy. Moreover, there is also an impressive underlying density to the pillowy treats, making it pretty filling and worth it's price tag.

It is smooth and milky (the hokkaido milk is so good) with the right amount of sweetness and roasted fragrance. Topped with dainty latte art, it is a pleasure to sip.

And probably the best Brown Sugar Fresh Milk franchised in SG so far. This cup ($5.30) is really flavourful with a strong aromatic brown sugar taste, mixed in with the fresh meiji milk. I do think the boba's chewiness leaves more to be desired though.

Like a Taiwanese cafe from a fairy tale, the quaint and idyllic interior of the place is relaxing.
-
Coffee wise, probably could have ordered something cooler, but their hand drip coffee ($6) was really not bad at all. Very forward fruity profile, complimented by a fragrant nutty finish.

It had fragrant nutty coffee notes, mixed with rich chocolate notes carrying a subtle depth of bitterness. A pleasantly complex blend compared to some drearily cloying mochas I've had.

It was smooth, flavourful and fragrant, whilst having a good mix of flavours from both components. Beautifully balanced, as all things should be.

The distinct nutty notes within the creamy blend made it "almost like peanut butter" as the barista put it.

End of an era as the sourdough darlings bid us farewell, for good. Much has to be said about their bakes, but the one thing I will always rave about is their toast; crunchy crust encasing sourdough that is dense with a nice wet bite, and also delightfully fragrant.

The toast goes oh-so-well with the entire array of their homemade spreads, but my personal favourites have to be their ever-popular nut butter with honey, and hummus. Neither are peculiar toast complements, but sometimes simplicity and good execution is all you need. They will be missed.

A food reviewer for fun. Some of my photos are super over-edited to compensate for my old S7 camera.
