SPD4459 [Cafe 休閒篇] IL CAFFE 意菲咖啡室 A local Italian Cafe in Busy Central - by Hazel



Hey, is Hazel again !!^^

I would like to recommend all of you a total Italian decoration / design at the end of the busy wet market in Central.





One weekday afternoon  I was wandering around Gage Street and then I spotted a cafe tucked away in the wet market on Gage Street. I decided to have a try. It's a small cafe but you can see all the professional coffee equipment squeezing in this small yet cozy cafe. You can also see all the desserts to go with your coffee...

  
A vintage fridge, I wondered if it's still functioning.

They provide afternoon tea set and on this page

                      dessert and cake sets. 








             

              
Mocha
There was chocolate powder on it. The chocolate taste was about right, not overpowering the coffee taste. Each coffee came with a piece of biscotti which was surprisingly good without being too sweet.







Freshly Made Waffle with Gelato 
For tea set, they only served half portion of the waffle and we suspected they would serve a whole waffle for a la carte menu. On the waffle lied the chocolate gelato. The waffle was freshly made and the sides were crunchy while the middle was chewy. It was really delicious!






Lemon Meringue Tart
As I expected, the tart was light and not sweet at all. As much as it was refreshing, the meringue was a bit blend. The lemon filling was smooth and the lemon taste was strong and not artificial. The crust was very thin, not too flaky but good enough.





I was happy to find high quality of food and coffee at a reasonable price here. Next time I would definitely go for a whole waffle!
