Wanna play hide and seek?

Q: Who in the right mind will actually set up a cafe in a medical centre???

A: La Ristretto

Q: Who will actually choose to operate it else where instead of the first level???

A: La Ristretto

This has gotta be the most gusty cafe I’ve come across so far. You will probably know about them through online (like what you are reading now) or by word of mouth, or else it is almost impossible to find this cafe. Alternatively, you will probably discover it if you decided to have an excursion within Novena Medical Centre one of these days.

With brick laden walls, communal sitting style, a roaster, barista at work and around 15 seats, La Ristretto is indeed cozy! Surrounded by lush greenery, there is also option for alfresco sitting which is right smack in the middle of the medical centre. But fret not, all seats are sheltered from the scorching sun.

La Ristretto has all day breakfast menu to keep your hunger at bay and they do serve up decent coffee! Uncertain about their the origin and blend they use, but it tasted really familiar. It has that strong earthy or caramelized flavour with medium acidity. Frankly, it’s hard to differentiate them. But who cares, a good coffee is what that counts! Be warned though, each cup cost $5.50.

What’s good about coming in a group is that you get to order more drinks, which means more options to tryout and more pictures to take! On the flip side, data connection is fairly poor within the vicinity. Therefore, if you are intending to get work done with usage of the net, then this may not be the best place for it.
