Last year in June I purchased a drink at McCafe for the first time. It was the outlet in Pasir Ris’s White Sands mall. I ordered a double chocolate frappe and it was the most horrible drink I’d ever had. It was watery and bland. It didn’t taste of coffee or chocolate. It mostly just tasted of ice. The best part of the drink was the whipped cream on top.
Well, maybe it was the outlet or maybe things have improved with the quality of their drinks. Lately, while waiting to catch a movie at Downtown East, my wife have been getting drinks and sitting in the McCafe there to chat, read and kill time. When I go there I get an iced latte. It’s my favorite ‘fancy’ drink. Out of the three times I’ve bought that drink there I’ve had two hits and a miss. The one time the drink wasn’t good was because the girl gave me a glass of iced milk instead of a latte. Seriously. You couldn’t tell there was coffee in it at all. Thankfully, though, when I brought it to their attention they fixed the drink.
Anyhow, the quality of the drinks has gone up. I guess my original assessment isn’t valid anymore, because I’m loving the fact that I can get reasonably priced coffee there that’s good now.
The presentation is nice too:
