Dutch Colony Coffee Co. at Frankel Avenue
Remember how i was complaining about the dearth of good coffee in the East? Well well, i'm glad to be wrong now because of Carvers & Co, Craftsmen (they have great cakes), and now Dutch Colony Coffee Co. has also opened its outpost right here in Frankel Estate! Yay. Ok, if you don't know where that is, that's perfectly fine with me, DON'T COME. Haha. You guys can just head to the one at Pasarbella. :P
It's honestly too inconvenient to get here if you don't drive. Just the way i like it. Good stuff are only meant to be shared with the right people. ;)
Well Dutch Colony beans are available at a number of places so i've probably tried the beans before. Obviously i'm not one who fancies the west and the kiosk at Pasarbella is hardly a relaxing spot to enjoy a cuppa. Thankfully, the Frankel outlet has the luxury of space, both indoors and outdoors. There's a spacious and airy skylight area at the back that will give you that lovely whitewashed IG photo.
Coffee is prepared in a variety of methods here and you could also choose from the single orgins list.
Well balanced coffee with a lovely crema. So smooth and easy to drink. It's just me being the caffeine addict but i downed my drink in no time.
A full brunch menu is availble, alongside small baked goods. Considering this is our after lunch coffee sesh, we couldn't stomach more than a piece of cake. SOBS.
I've seen the same cakes at Assembly Coffee at The Cathay and know for sure that the Earl Grey Citrus Loaf is dry and overly sweet. From the looks of it, i bet i am right. Needless to say, one could skip the Thai Milk Tea loaf. Well, luckily for them, the Matcha Bundt cake was superb.
The cake was moist and we could taste the distinct green tea in it. The icing was a little sweet but that could be easily scraped off so no issue. Can they make this a bigger slice please??
This is certainly going to be my regular hangout from now. Gonna sample the brunch next time!
