Creation Café really exceeded my expectations and after my meal, I walked away fully satisfied, and definitely thinking of my second visit here. Located at the first floor of Shaw Tower, this unassuming, quiet little café seemed rather ordinary and plain. My friend and I was walking rounds around Shaw Towers, wondering what to eat for an early dinner. There were a few other restaurants around, but we were craving for some Western food so we settled for Creation Café.ServiceThe waiter immediately
The waiter immediately ushered us to an empty seat and found two stools to put our bags on. I was amazed by the speed at which their service operated at. When we sat down, two glasses of iced water instantaneously appeared. I was so impressed that they seemed to manage to read our minds (we were complaining about being thirsty on our way there and were wondering where to put our bags). Thereafter, they presented us the menu and order form which was easy to understand. After we ordered, they collected our form promptly. The more remarkable thing is the level of attentiveness paid as we ate, ensuring that the main course was served right after the appetizer, and the dessert right after the main course. I really liked the fact that they paid a lot of attention and are really thoughtful, even though the prices of the food are not expensive. Usually this standard of service should be accompanied by a certain high price in the menu – but no – their service was really impeccable without charging GST! They did not show any signs of rushing us out even though we completed our meal, something a lot of restaurants would do these days.
Food My friend ordered Set A (Soup + Main Course + Drink = $12.80, NO GST/Service Charge) while I ordered Set B (Soup + Main Course + Drink + Dessert = $15.30, NO GST/ Service Charge). It is really very cheap for the number of courses you get, and it is really delicious. The soup that was served was their regular Soup-of-the-day, Tomato Soup. For people who hate tomato/vegetables or don’t like the taste, you will be amazed by how they managed to turn something as disgusting (in my opinion) into something so heavenly. Seriously, this soup is damn delicious!!! It is sweet, a little sour and really very delicious. I ate every single bit and wished there was more. For the main course, I ordered the Italian Sausages Tomato Herb Sauce with Pasta. There is the usual array of pasta types you can choose from – Spaghetti/Fusilli/Linguine/Penne/ etc. While the main course itself is not as extraordinary as the appetizer, it is still quite delectable. There were tiny bits of sausages and tomato base paste. Maybe next time I will try some other flavor instead because this is quite normal. As for the dessert, I chose Apple Crumble with Ice Cream (choice of vanilla and chocolate – which I chose Vanilla). I was very full at this point, but then again, I always reserve a secret compartment in my stomach for dessert ^_^ This Apple Crumble is really sweet and indulging. Every bit of it feels very real, you can taste the real apple bits in it. It is warm and the ice-cream is cold, so when mixed together, it’s really one pleasing combination that makes you feel so happy and blessed. That’s what desserts should make you feel! Originally I wanted to continue to eat ice-cream at Tom’s Palette just round the corner, but I was too full! Haha!
Ambience Quiet, relaxing place to hang out with friends without feeling the stress of speaking too loudly. It is suitable for friends, colleagues, couples, family to hang out… really a wonderful place!
Price Being a budget eater, I don’t like to pay too much for my meals especially when it’s not worth it. $15.30 for an appetizer, main course, drink, and even a dessert – what more can you ask for? Plus impeccable service, a lovely ambience, and delicious good food… you just need some delightful company to complete this absolutely perfect meal.
I'll definitely come back to try some of their other dishes next time!
