My Experience
If you're looking for a cozy, classy place for yummy heart-warming dessert, this is definitely the place to be. Their turquoise coloured furniture, added with vintage decoration, really makes you wanna stay there forever. The shop was not hard to find, just look out for "Beatrice Looi"'s boutique, and ur at the right place! (It's the same row as Paparich, Alexis and La Bodega.


This is the place. Pretty right?! :)







And these are the desserts we ordered.  Red Velvet Cake. Good but not memorable. According to the two ladies above, Just heavenly's Red Velvet is better :) I personall…

My Experience
Another great dinner with great friends :) I love the place because it is really comfy. The music they play, the dim lighting, the setting of the place, it just makes you feel comfortable. The staff there were nice too, but service was a lil out. My friend only got his drink at the end of our dinner. Insufficient staff I assume.
So... their food.... Very creamy, very filling...
