It’s been a while since I posted my coffee and ice-cream review lists. So long in fact that it’s time for an update on that war front, so let’s dive in:
1. Vida E Cafe: I finally did it. I finally dragged my ass (and my wallet) here and I loved it. Why didn’t I get here sooner?!? As always, I played it safe and ordered a caffe latte (I often find that ,if nothing else, cafes usually make a decent latte) and it was divine. And while they have more limited selection compared to places like Second Cup, they are, nevertheless, worth it. The complementary piece of dark chocolate is just the cherry on top.
2. Ci gusta: This was actually suggested to us in a comment in my ice-cream review list. Truth is, I was here years ago (had the waffles, don’t remember much past that). However more recently, I came back here with company. My latte passed the test however it seemed the beans for my companions Americanos had been over-roasted causing a somewhat bitter taste. I was told by one of my companions that this was unusual as she came here often and had never had any issue. Interestingly enough the Americanos were served with a mini-scoop of ice-cream on a mini-cone. But the true highlight of our visit was the ice-cream. My companions ordered the berry ice-cream, I tried a bit and it was quite simply; a delight. I ordered the rum raisin ice-cream, also an excellent choice that is just this side of boozy.
Well that’s all we have for now. Don’t forget to leave a suggestion of where you’d like me or NJ to go next.
Till next time,
I have to say nothing drives me into a bigger frenzy than a good book fair. So it stands to reason that I love Logos Hope.
In all seriousness it’s great, the books are great, the staff is wonderful, and the atmosphere is unforgettable. A bit of a warning though, come early because it gets really crowded really fast.
Their cafe is good too. Coffee is decent and ice-cream is great. Croissants were great too. Sadly I wasn’t able to try out the bagel. Maybe next time!
All in all, it was a wonderful experience. I even got to play a game of chess; I lost (badly).
