Finally! A café in Singapore that does a decent cappuccino and offers almond milk. The lactose intolerant in me is jumping with joy right now. Since discovering that I'm lactose intolerant, it's been tough trying to find a café that offers alternative milks (soy excluded because I'm also soy intolerant). This came recommended by my aunt, who actually took me here herself a year ago. We're both lactose and soy intolerant so this was ideal. 

I had an Almond Cappuccino, which was executed quite well. The milk foam art was done well, the drink was still hot even with the addition of milk, and there was a nice sprinkle of cocoa powder on top. I could still taste the almond milk, but I've grown to accept that it'd be impossible not to. It's not my first option for alternative milk but it does allow me to have a coffee with milk in it. My normal order would be an Americano or Espresso otherwise, so this was a treat. 

The café itself is quite small on the inside, with limited seating but they do have outdoor seating. However, with our climate in Singapore, we both prefer to sit indoors, especially when having a hot drink.
