The Place I was really excited to check out Department of Caffeine (DOC) and jumped on the opportunity once the weekend arrives. The interior of the cafe is sleek industrial which is one of my favourite interior designs. The cafe is not very big, which explains the full capacity when I was there.
The Food Rejoice all brunch lovers, as All-day brunch is served at DOC. This sounds perfect for the lazy slugs. Other than the usual brunch affairs, there are also various cakes and pastries to pair with your cuppa coffee.
My only order for the day was the Cafe Mocha ($5.50). The coffee beans are really aromatic, not to mention the almost perfect latte art. It was a pity that I had food earlier, or else I would be very tempted to order the brunch items.
Rants It is not a big cafe and there is a constant stream of crowd, which does not make me feel very relaxed as there is a slight pressure not to hog the seats for too long. We got the hint when our cups were cleared the moment once we finished our coffee. Probably not the best place to relax your nerves and senses over the weekend if you are looking for a cafe to chill for as long as you wish.
Will I return again? I will definitely want to try the brunch the next time. Of course, the good coffee served is another big reason to return.
