Noir Art Specialty Coffee may look small with 4 tables inside and 2 tables outside, but they have their own micro-roastery with which they roast their own coffee beans. It is located right beside Madame Patisserie and a short distance away from Little India MRT (Exit A).Besides the coffees, they do serve a good variety of sandwiches, desserts and pastries (some from All Things Delicious).Very milky and extremely chocolatey, the Hot Belgian Dark Chocolate will be for the ones who love the richness of chocolate. This felt somewhat like drinking melted chocolate and was a little too sweet - on the verge of cloying for me. There was a strong milkiness to the drink too. Order only if you need a chocolate fix/are a true lover of chocolate.There's a strong zesty lemon flavour to this cheesecake, which was refreshing. The cheesecake was creamy smooth in texture but I would have liked it even more if the biscuit base was crumbly instead of smooth. Still overall, this would be a good pick to go with.Another specialty here, the Bottled Cold Brew is made without coming into contact with hot water. Apparently, the coffee used is ground steeped for 12 hours. This resembled a cold latte and was again, very milky. It was almost like drinking milk with a slight coffee flavour. Not on my list of favourite coffees.This cafe doesn't stand out in its coffee, at least going by the two too-milky ones we had. Still, it is an alright choice to spend your afternoon at, given the general laidback vibe of the area. If possible, I will be back to try the more substantial food. continue reading

A hole-in-the-wall cafe, Noir Art Specialty Coffee is probably one of the smallest cafes I have ever seen. Apart from the lone table that sits only two, there are six more counter seats and a small alfresco just right outside for yet another two. The menu focuses largely on coffee, from espresso-based to cold brews. Cakes supplied are also available, but the co-owner has intentions of selling her own bakes in time to come.Preferring something more tea-like, I chose the Rose Cheesecake ($5.80). Light yet smooth, the cheese was not too strong, hence able to bring out the subtle flowery aroma of Rose. The cookie base held up pretty nicely as well without crumbling too quickly.Noir Art Specialty Coffee is one of the rare cafes these days which insists on roasting their own beans to create a taste of their own. Their Noir blend consists of Colombian, Ethiopian and Sumatran beans, which gives a chocolatey and nutty tone with a tinge of sweetness. The Flat White ($4.00) was creamy as well. They are also intending to serve up a second blend in time to come so as to offer a variety of blends to their patrons to suit the different preferences in the future.For more photos and the full review, please visit: http://jiaksimipng.wordpress.com/2014/06/07/noir-art-specialty-coffee-mackenzie-road/ continue reading
