Update: This cafe has ceased operation.
After a leisurely walk at Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park, the husband and I chanced upon Cafe Mojito that was located just across the road so in we went to grab some tea time refreshments.
They had a small selection of cakes and pastries on display…
…as well as some homely-looking muffins too.
Besides desserts, there were also limited offerings of hot dishes like sandwiches, pizzas and pastas.
And here was what we got. Will never miss getting my favourite Earl Grey Lavender (S$3.20) blend from Gryphon Tea whenever I see it. Over here, they served the tea in a mug and not in a teapot but I guess it shouldn’t be an issue to request for a refill of hot water if required. The tea? Aromatic as always 🙂
The husband’s Iced Mocha Blend (S$5.80) was a terribly sorry sight though. Absolutely tasteless. It was all ice with no coffee flavour at all. Or should I call it brown-coloured non-flavoured icy slush? For its price, I would not recommend this.
The Mud Pie ($6.90) was a delightful portion of cappuccino and chocolate ice cream served on an Oreo biscuit base. There were at least 4 scoops of ice cream in this and I thought the price was very reasonable for this portion size. The ice cream was probably out of a tub rather than home made and it was quite sweet but the coffee syrup somewhat balanced that out. It wasn’t the best mud pie I had but it was still good especially if you like the combination of coffee and chocolate ice cream. If the base could be thicker like a brownie, it would have been a perfect ratio because you really need that contrasting texture to go with the otherwise cloying ice cream.
The Lemon Pave ($4.20) was like a cream cheese sponge cake with puff pastry on the sides and then piped with butter cream on top. We couldn’t taste the lemon flavour in this. The pastry was dry and tough but the sponge was moist and fluffy.
We also had the Oreo Muffin ($1.50) which looked just like a home-baked good. The muffin was a little dry but at least it wasn’t oily too. As it was more on the salty side, it was pretty nice to combine the muffin with the ice cream from the mud pie. They also had other flavours like Cranberry and Apple Crumble.
The cafe was almost empty when we came by with only a student doing her homework on one table. Ambience wise, I felt it was more of a humble neighbourhood outfit for a quick snack or a quiet chat and not so much of a hangout place. Overall, we weren’t wholly impressed with the quality of the desserts but if you’re in the vicinity and thinking of having tea (Gryphon Tea wouldn’t go wrong, lol), you can still consider getting the mud pie and/or muffin that are very reasonably priced. Just don’t expect too much for that price tag.
