Tamper & Co, I believe it was re-branded from the previous La’Coffee. As I saw the same lady (I think she is the owner) also at Tamper & Co. Moreover, I spotted the la’coffee chicken wings on Tamper & Co menu.
When I entered the cafe, I thought it was a new cafe taken over la’cofffe which I previously blog about and wasn’t impressed. So when I notice that it was probably a re-branding, I was feeling a little peeve. Unfortunately, I discovered the traces only after I have placed my order.
I was recommended the Smoked Salmon Open Sandwich, priced at $20. When I saw the price, I feel the pinched, nevertheless, I went ahead with it. There was an option of either Baguette or round bun for the bread. I opted Baguette
When I was served with two thin slices of baguette, some (though good amount) of Smoked Salmon, two Sunny Side-up (per my request) and a Spinach salad with simple Olive Oil mixed with Balsamic Vinegar dressing, my heart sank. For $20, I wasn’t impressed.
Next, my Cappuccino, there wasn’t any Latte Art. As I could pour a decent Tulip at my first and only attempt, after which whenever I don’t see a Latte Art on my cuppa, I some how will never feel satisfied with the coffee. The coffee was on par, certainly no where near good.
The design was pretty much like la’coffee with only some re-arrangement and changes to the colour of the table top.
If I am correct about it is a re-branding, I am surely disappointed as I don’t see much improvement to the execution of the cafe. It’s only a change from the highly priced traditional coffee to another highly price typical cafe food.
