Hashtag CoffeeHouse, The Strand Garden Office

Sunday, March 15, 2015

After-dinner coffee is always a great way to wind down, whether it is getting some "me time" or chilling out with friends & family. Hashtag CoffeeHouse wasn't our top of mind initially but we happened to be around The Strand area & needed a peaceful place to cosy up. This cafe is a quaint little place tucked at a small corner on the ground floor at The Strand Garden Office.

I'm glad that WL's friend recommended this cafe because it wasn't crowded. Just exactly the kind of cafe that I could sit for hours either chatting up with friends or plain staring into space, pondering the meaning of life. The decor resembles a homey lounge area, furnished with sofas of assorted shapes & sizes. Meanwhile, bookshelves with fiction & non-fiction titles lined at one side of the wall.

One thing which caught my eye is the bowlful of candies as the centrepiece on each table. The candies are on the house & sure enough, the staffs would expect you to spend on something in the cafe. I called for my usual coffee fix - mocha.

Although on a slightly sweeter tone, the mocha was quite alright. Coffee was well brewed & fragrant. Cocoa powder was not dusted on the surface, instead it was part of the stimulating beverage. I can taste the slight bitter taste of coffee & cocoa, then enveloped with creamy milk & sugar sweetness. The after taste was leaning towards a sweet tone, not exactly my kind of thing. Nevertheless, it was still an enjoyable cuppa.

I would definitely recommend Hashtag to anyone looking for a quiet place to chill out with your friends. Coffee is quite alright, the ambience is fantastic...what more can I ask for? Rating 4 out of 5.
