As you may have guessed, I already knew what I wanted (surprise, surprise). Obviously, I came for their one thing and one thing only, the granola. I ordered a portion with live organic yogurt and fresh fruits. Since this required no cooking, it arrived within 3 minutes of me placing my order.


Upon seeing this beautiful bowl of granola, I immediately knew that I would enjoy it. Firstly, the dish was presented very nicely, as you can see from the image above. The yogurt, granola and fresh fruits were clearly visible on the bowl and separated almost equally. Secondly, there was a generous amount of all three! I liked that because it meant I could have a bit of everything with every bite. Thirdly, they really meant fresh fruits.There have been many times where the menu states ‘fresh fruits’ but it really ends up being canned fruits or a fruit compote, which are delicious too, but not what I prefer with my granola.


In terms of taste, I liked the granola a lot! It had a nice mix of dried fruits (apricots and cranberries) and nuts (sunflower seeds and pecans) along with clusters of oats. It wasn’t overly sweet, but I could definitely taste the sweetness in some bites, and it was crunchy! Often the granola I’ve had in cafés tend to be more chewy than they are crunchy but the latter is definitely my preferred way to have granola. I also liked that the live organic yogurt was thick and creamy – it had the same consistency as Greek yogurt, which is my favourite! There’s nothing more disappointing than eating granola with yogurt that has a very liquid-y consistency – it just makes the granola soggy! As for the fresh fruits, I liked that they didn’t add any sugar into the mix because I could taste the sourness from the raspberries and pineapples. The fruit cocktail consisted of: blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, pineapple, rock melon and honeydew melon.
