Tai-Tai in Training: Royal Copenhagen Café

Takashimaya Shopping Centre
Level 3
391 Orchard Road
Singapore 238873

From the outside, this coffee joint looked like a place looked like a tai-tai hang out. My experience inside told a different story. I was hoping to enjoy a nice cup of coffee and maybe a scone or a cake with a friend of mine during the mid-afternoon. To my horror there were children running up and down and it bothered me because I feel that my environment of peace had been broken.

Mini mocha chocolate cake

Nonetheless, I persevered and ordered myself a cappuccino and a mini mocha chocolate cake with chocolate sauce. The waitress informed me that they couldn’t give me a skinny cappuccino because they didn’t have skim milk. I looked at her speechless for about 30 seconds because for a coffeehouse which seems to service these tai-tais who are constantly weight watching, I think it is an audacity that they don’t even carry skim milk. So I had my cuppa with full fat milk. As the name of the coffeehouse suggest, they serve everything on Royal Copenhagen china, it is beautiful, but my cappuccino came in an interesting looking mug which didn’t even have a saucer for me to rest my teaspoon and so I had to rest it on the table. So as my tea went on, I got my agitated that I had no skinny cappuccino and no saucer, in other words, I don’t think I will ever come back here. The cake wasn’t too bad, they served it with grapes and strawberries but nothing too extraordinary, they have a wide selection of cakes and they serve food here as well and a set lunch is about S$18.90 if my memory does not fail me, but my S$10 tea was a disaster. The plates impressed, but that’s about it. 2 air kisses out of 5.

If u are a green tea fan, you would their green tea cake.....ABSOLUTELY YUMMILICIOUS!!! If u like cheese cakes, theirs aren't bad either, their base is interesting - crushed nuts instead of mashed biscuits base. Although, i agree i too was shocked when they told me no skinny milk for a cafe!!! An absolutely tai-tai place though.
