I've had tea and American cappuccin a lot of times. And it's always very good. I have also visited with some friend and they found the place quiet good.

At the corner of Orchard and Spital is a funky little place that serves a GREAT panini. The menu is solid with interesting names. Three of us each ordered paninis and they were all absolutely fantastic. Highly recommend.
