Cafe Latte

Overall Impression: The service here was quite good. Food selection was quite little for this price of $60++ per person. Food and dessert quality were decent. But with the 1-for-1 Card promotion, it's still worth it given that the ambience was really cosy, classy and relax with soothing piano music! But without the 1-For-1, the price of $60++ per person is definitely not justifiable...
