Grabbed a takeaway cup of yuan yang ($6.50)! Thought that the portion was quite small initially, but it worked out really well. The espresso shot mixes with the milk for a strong white, whilst the fragrance of earl grey comes towards the end as the ice ball melts. Really enjoyed this!

The flat white ($5.20) is a little on the thin side, but the flavour is extremely robust. It has a good caffeine kick of a dark roast profile!

Halfway through the circuit breaker, and sorely missing the freedom to spend an afternoon at a quiet cafe over a good cup of coffee. Here’s a 8 oz white ($4.50), brewed with their Brazilian beans. It features a dark roast with strong flavours and nutty notes. Pairs perfectly with their bakes!

Had a quick tea break a couple of weeks ago! The Americano ($5) was served in a large cup. The coffee was smooth and strong, with a touch of acidity. The cafe latte ($6.5) was rather mellowed! Paired our drinks with a pistachio cake ($8.50) - it wasn’t too sweet, but I wished the nuttiness came through more cleanly. Found it too pricey overall!

The Better Half is operated by a couple - one bakes the many pastries on sale, the one brews coffee. We got a cup of flat white ($5) to accompany our cake - I didn’t catch where they sourced their beans from, but it was smooth with a medium roast. Would have liked the coffee flavour to come through more strongly!

The drinks here certainly surprised us with how good they were! The flat white ($4.50) had a strong coffee component, bitter with a slight hint of acidity. It was a sizeable cup and not at all overwhelmed by the milk! The chai latte ($5.50) featured a blend of spices, with cinnamon and cardamom coming through most. It’s not easy to get chai right, since everyone has different preferences. But we think it’s better than Joe & Dough’s, and that’s a high compliment!

It’s not easy to get an iced white ($5) right! This one hit all the right notes, with the coffee coming through cleanly even as the ice melted. Generally prefer my milk frothed, but this one had surprising hints of sweetness even straight out of the bottle!

Swung by for a cup - the store is bustling even on a weekday! Opted for a 5 oz white ($4.50), as there is less milk for a stronger coffee kick. The Guatemala beans are robust and well rounded, bold in flavour 🌟

The long black ($4) uses beans from Laos, giving a full-bodied flavour that is chocolatey and lightly spiced. The flat white ($5) is a tad milder, using beans from Papua New Guinea with hints of malt and nuts. Was really impressed with how cleanly the coffee came through! The cups are on the small side, but definitely of high quality.

Tried the cold brew ($6) with milk (+$0.50) this time round, and found that I much prefer it without. The milk overwhelms the coffee and leaves it weak and diluted. Having it black allows the flavour of the beans to come through strong and cleanly!

Coffee here is a definite! Got our usual flat white ($5.50++) and took a gamble with their specialty coffee. Tried the Nicaragua, brewed using the pour-over method ($9++) - the coffee is smooth and slightly acidic, floral with light hints of caramel.

I didn’t enjoy OMC’s espresso-based coffee the last time, as it was overwhelmed by milk. Went for the cold brew ($6) this time round - there isn’t much information of where the beans are from, but this glass packed a punch! It had a strong bold flavour, fruity without being too acidic. Wouldn’t hesitate to order this again!
