Start with their signature Black Sesame Freakshake. This Freakshake is made with crushed Chocolate Brownie, marshmallow, edible butterfly, and cream. Another great starter is their flavoured ice spheres. A popular pick is the Angelet (rose) with coconut water, garnished with a blueberry, thyme, and flowers.

Then, split the Chicken & Waffles served with seasonal berries, melted cheese, mayo, almond and mixed berry coulis. Gorgeous and very filling, great for splitting.

If you love matcha, they offer matcha a raindrop cake, lattes, and many of their dishes. A favorite is their French Toast dusted with matcha powder.
