Cafe hoppers really ought to hop their way to Department of Caffeine located at Duxton. This newbie in the area has proven themselves serious on the coffee note, with food worth recommending as well.
We had the Honey Lavender Tea Cake, Carrot Cake and Breakfast Quiche together with orders of Flat White. The Honey Lavender Tea Cake
stood along the perfect line between moist and dry, topped with honey that takes your tastebuds on a sweet waltz and your sense of smell towards a meadow of lavenders. Quite pleasant play on your senses. For the Breakfast Quiche
, it was pretty average and definitely not the star dish in the glass display. The Carrot Cake
on the other hand, stole the limelight with its generous amount of cream cheese that just hit the spot.
My expectations were high on coffee. After all, they did call themselves the Department of Caffeine. Most fortunately so, I was not disappointed. I had just about the perfect cup of coffee and needless to say, would be back for more.
Do note that they close pretty early everyday!
