  • Cozy Cafe Known for Coconut Coffee
  • Kiwi Cafe has not appeared in any articles yet

    • The Kiwi Café is located on a quaint narrow lane of Shanxi North Road. They serve a range of Western foods like waffles, burgers, and spaghetti but I mainly wanted to come and try out their specialty coconut coffee. This coffee is served in an actual coconut, which makes it a unique selling point, and of course, it’s always nice to drink out of a coconut as the weather gets cooler and pretend you are somewhere near the beach.

      I came around a weekend morning, and there weren’t much people in the shop except a large table full of students, and one or two single customers. They had a range of set brunch and afternoon tea combinations, and I settled on the egg benedict with salmon along with the cube toast topped with chocolate ice cream, and of course the coconut coffee. Set brunch or afternoon tea deals were around 60-70rmb. The ordering process was simple enough as you just order at the counter, but the wait for the food was quite long, despite it being quite empty. Apparently, we weren’t the only ones that was a bit impatient, because during our wait, a frustrated deliveries guy had a heated argument with the staff at the counters due to the slow pace of food preparation. I do not blame him as they are evaluated on the speed of their deliveries.

      Finally, after around half an hour, our meal came and I was ready to dig in. Appearance wise, the egg benedict did not look too appealing, mainly due to the colour of the egg, but it managed to scrape past the taste test at a 6.5/10. The large toast was a good filler, but it was really hard to finish as the ice cream ran out, and plain toast is no fun to munch on. The coconut coffee lived up to its name, for those that likes sweet coffee at least, but at 58rmb/ coconut, it’s double the price of your average cup of coffee, and although it’s good, I’m not sure it’s double as good as a normal cup of coffee. The atmosphere was pretty cosy though, and I can see this as a great place to do work or have a cosy chat with friends.
