If you are walking down Haji Lane seeking shelter and a cold drink, you might find your eye caught by this huge coffee. This might lead you to wonder, what does #selfie, have to do with coffee (besides the fact that it rhymes)?
Selfie coffee has been around for over two years, when the selfie, with the rise of smartphones, became commonplace in everyday life. The cafe filled with excited customers that are full of creativity, we browsed their artfully drawn menu on their wall while awaiting our turn to snap a selfie using their app.
The ice latte from their specialty drinks appears to have a smooth unblemished surface, on which is imprinted our selfie, or is it wefie (in which we tried really hard to act cute in)? But, take a sip or poke a straw through it and you will find that the smooth unblemished surface is actually made of delicious whipped cream! The Latte itself is a slushie that enables the unique crafting of the selfie drinks, a nicely blended coffee with whipped cream selfies.
The selfie lasts for a long time, even if the slushie turns into regular latte (although we do not recommend waiting till that point) – so you can definitely slowly take the perfect selfie with your selfie drink.
We were recommended to have some pastries along our drink, and we selected their top selling Rainbow Cake (it’s really eye-catching). With cream cheese on top giving the cake a smooth flavor, the cake is chilled yet soft. While enjoying the cake, we were told that the white cream cheese layer represents cloud and rain drops, while other layers represents colorful and cheerful rainbow. The cloud will bring the rain drops and rainbow to you, so that the world will not be dry and dull. ??
While the shop has a few seats on the ground floor, the place to look out for is their upstairs seating! Inspiring quotes and paintings adorning the walls complement the cozy decor.
If you like selfies and coffees (even though there are non caffeinated specialty drinks), this is definitely a cool place to hang.
