Purple Cats

Casual cafes are sprouting up all over Solaris Dutamas; this cheerful one seems to be run by a Korean family and serves mainly desserts and (non-alcoholic) drinks.

Caramel banana waffles. Not bad; the waffles were the supermarket-bought variety, but they turned out well enough. A real stomach-filler, though.

Honey butter bread. A whopping diet-killer, topped with loads of whipped cream.

Frozen yogurt with peach & dried fruits. Soft, smooth and sweet.

Cafe latte, ice caramel macchiato & green tea blended. Decent drinks.

Forgot to ask why they named it "Purple Cats." No live felines roaming here.

  1. Ho hum. Whipped cream gives me the heebies-jeebies! Purple cats roaming around for a cuddle would be cool though!

  4. min: heheh, i was recently addicted to watching youtube videos of kittens playing with each other. they're too cute for words! :D
    nell: oh yeah, if you have a sweet tooth, you'll probably enjoy the food here =)
    michelle: it's a catchy name, even though i'm still puzzled over it. but better than 'orange cats,' i guess :D

  5. Maybe the owner is a huge cat lover. And whose favorite colour is purple. Weird name might be an advantage too ... like if you were in a group of colleagues/friends trying to decide where to eat and one of you is like "hey let's try Purple Cats!" ... would certainly at least pique my interest!

  11. i love this place! the decor is awesome, the honey butter bread even more so, and the fact that they play k-pop on their flat screens gives you more than enough reasons to frequent this cafe :)

  12. janine: heheh, i'm quite ignorant about k-pop, so maybe i should visit this place more often and watch the music videos. thanks :D
