Piece of Cake Café is an adorable, family owned tea bar/dessert shop. Although it’s been open since 2012, I’ve never actually had the opportunity to visit and try their food. Finally, a few days ago I took my friend with me to check it out. We wanted a place where we could catch up and talk freely without having to feel like we were being too loud for all the youngins doing their homework. If you go to many teahouses or dessert shops, you know this happens quite often. First thing I noticed upon walking into Piece of Cake Café was the social media board. They had me at hello. It’s always fun to tweet or Instagram something and to see it showing up on the board in real time. Let's take a look at the java!

IMG_6001I ordered a hot Almond Honey Japanese Coffee. It was so fun to see it being made. Makes you appreciate all the work and nuances that go into make a great cup of java. This was very strong. It definitely woke me up for the day!

It had a really nice milk taste, but with the consistency of flan. I would definitely order it again.

Overall, I’d definitely add Piece of Cake to my list of go-to tea houses. It’s always nice to have a place open late. They open until 12 am most days. The fact that they have ample parking doesn’t hurt either. If you want a more in depth tour of the shop, check out the TasteMade video I made.IMG_6017Enjoy!
