I went to this place with my pals....They ordered for food which was served okay for me.though the place is full of smokers at night you cant enjoy the breeze at night.I would recommend it only to smokers parental advise is however advice at night.

I love the walls, looks like something out of a 15 century movie, and the pots inside, awesome. I had Moroccan tea and salmon sandwich.

I am one of those people who will be a forever Dormans fan so I am still mourning the change :-( I do not find the staff friendly, they are not quick to serve, I also think that for the quality of food they serve, I do not really get value for my money... I love the very vanilla milkshake and occasionally the carrot cake is done really well but like I said... I miss Dormans a whoooole lot.

OMG my workmate is obsessed with your granola milkshakes . As for me the salad always does it and let me not get started on fresh baked pastries.The service is also a plus on a dull day.

When I went the power was out and the coffee wasnt working so the waiters made coffee from boiling water and suggested other menu items that were available. Despite the outage I left satisfied.

The upper level has me sold! It's warm ambiance and the aura screams of tranquility (Hihi). The service is above average and the coffee, (I had black) just the right amount of "good". It's definitely where to have a chill brew or cuppa.

Had breakfast here - was pleasantly surprised by the size of the chocolate croissant (they're massive) and the lower amount on the bill (didn't know about the coffee + pastry for 350/- deal in the mornings). the server was friendly but had a hard time answering a few of my questions. I preferred the Dormans decor (the now-white walls feel a bit sterile relative to the artsy feel before) but the spaciousness and abundance of natural light make it a lovely breakfast/coffee spot.
