Coffee Stain By Joseph

Spilling some beans at Solaris Dutamas, Coffee Stain By Joseph is the revamped, refurbished Joseph @ Kitchen, refocusing its attention on caffeine and such.

Western favorites from pasta to burgers fill the menu; it's worth noting that the all-day breakfast platters here live up their name, so customers can still order eggs with scones and turkey ham as late as 9:30pm.

Omelet cooked with three cheeses (cheddar, mozzarella and parmesan), with a bread bun, salad and baked beans. All the essential elements are present; something sufficiently simple for most folks to make at home.

Roasted pumpkin soup. Not extraordinary, but creamy and flavorsome enough to satisfy.

Yam, mint and orange-flavored macarons, pleasantly tasty. Sure, the texture isn't perfect, but people demanding perfection will drive themselves to disappointment.

Siphon coffee is available, though single-origin beans will only be offered starting next week.

Coffee Stain's baristas are experienced and eager to share their knowledge. Thumbs up to that.

Also worth trying: Dilmah Ceylon single-origin premium tea.

Or if you're shunning both coffee and tea, then a thick avocado milkshake might hit the spot.

  1. The purple macaron is soooo pretty!!! I could just stare at it the whole night. Is the yam macaron any good?

    1. Smitten by food: ooh, I liked it, though my friend thought the taste was a tad too mild. It has a clean buttercream flavor, with some yam infused for a fragrant undercurrent :D

  11. Looks like a gourmet coffee place. Too bad this place is really too far for me or else it'll be great as a hang out place.
