Three more weeks before our first RES exam and I have buried myself inside the notes together with my girl friend at home for a hardcore studying the entire day. After a hard day of intense studying, we decided to give ourselves a short break away from the notes and enjoy a cup of aromatic coffee (both of us are coffee freaks). I surfed the net and saw Oh Nom Nom Nom’s blog introducing The Coffee Daily at Brighton Crescent. We decided to try our luck.
I was driving casually into Serangoon Gardens and the sudden crave for desserts drawn both of us into the Hawker and while I enjoyed my Ice-Kachang, my girl friend opted for Ice Jelly, but we still lack of caffeine boost. We decided to look around again to find a nice place for coffee. While I was leaving and on my way out of Serangoon Gardens, we saw the Sun Ray Cafe, brightly lit signboard attracts us and we thought it might be a good place to chill. Parking spaces was limited and I had to turn into the road to find a parking lot and out of sudden, we saw The Coffee Daily, which was like couple of metres away from Sun Ray Cafe. That was our choice.
Entering the cafe, we are greeted by a guy which I believed that to be Alex as mentioned in Oh Nom Nom Nom’s blog. Two things caught my girl friend attention almost immediate; the molten lava cake and the rainbow cake. As expected, molten lava cake was chosen and I settled down with a Long Black while she went for her usual Cafe Latte.
Once you sliced down a corner of the cake, melted chocolate oozed out smoothly and when coupled with their vanilla ice cream, it is heavenly delicious ! I don’t really have a sweet tooth, but I was able to digest the cake as it was not that sweet.
Food is nice, ambience is good as well, but the coffee lack of aroma and tasted too acidic. This was the only disappointing moment. Somehow it seems to me that they are focusing more on the cakes than the coffee.
Anyway, I will be back soon as we are going to try the rainbow cake the next time round.
