Cafe Hopper Review: Yahava KoffeeWorks Sg @ Upper Thomson

This cafe was a surprised discovery upon recommendation by a good brother. Knowing this brother of mine, he is not exactly a cafe person. All he told me about this cafe is that it is very atas (high class in Singlish). Since he recommended so we decided to take a look at this Yahava Cafe. I didn’t have too much of expectation about this cafe but when I arrived at the site, I was totally wrong. The smell of the coffee beans in the cafe already signalled to me that this cafe is serious about their beans! There is like a whole buffet of beans to choose from: from Sumatra to Java to some Hawaiian mix. It took me a while to decide what to order. Basically you can choose the beans you want to turn them into your latte or mocha or any kind of cuppa. I think this is really cool.

I was also delighted to see that they serve pecan pie, which I have not seen for a long time since the heyday of Olio Dome Cafe at Wheelocks Place…come on, am I the only one that identify with this? Don’t you look at me like that! Ok, fine I am reaching my 40s! The only ‘dark side’ about this is that they don’t really warm up the pie for you. However, still the pie tasted pretty well.

When I stepped into the cafe, I noticed a number of huge woody tables. I really love the woody feel and there is a big world map as wallpaper. I must say that all these certainly have make appeal to an anthropology major like myself. Well, my overall experience with this cafe is that you must come and take a look for yourself. It may not have the hype like he other cafes in Tiong Bahru or Middle Road, but it certainly has it’s own niche in this coffee world. I will say this is a great find! I pray to Almighty God that more of such cafe will spring up in Singapore….and of course…lower cost of operation so that people can be more creative to design their cafes.
