Coffee Time @Chye Seng Huat Hardware - PhotoHunt

PhotoHunt theme : Time/ Door

I received an invitation to a coffee party and when I arrived at the venue on a rainy Sunday ....


I was wondering if I had gone to the wrong place. The address given by the host was a hardware store. I peeped into a glass window .... there were people eating and drinking inside.

I found the entrance to the coffee bar. :)

Inside the coffee bar ..... 

Patrons were sitting around a standalone coffee island bar and watching the barristas at work.

It was packed and there was a long queue for seats. The young handsome owner (looks like a Korean movie star) opened up his Training Room for our group. It was on the second level.

A spacious and cosy room for the 24 of us, away from the madhouse downstairs, it was a quiet place to chill and relax. The host ordered coffee and cakes. I am not a coffee person but the aroma of the coffee was too much for me. I was offered sips of assorted brews from my friends. :)


The coffee bar also offers full breakfast and lunch menu. I had a Spicy Prawn Aglio Olio that was too oily. I passed it to hubby and went for the cakes. :P

Love all the chocolate ones! :)


We had a good time with the people we care.
