It has been awhile since my last visit. I remembered coming here a year ago, when it first opened. Today, I revisited this cafe, because I won a $25 gift card at a giveaway from Quantum Coffee. However, this would not change my honest review about this cafe. When I first came here one year ago, I loved the vibe and how spacious and bright this place it.

I recently consolidated a list of restaurants that I want to visit in the near future with other foodies, and Sweetery Cafe + Desserts is one of them. Last Saturday, Jan and I decided to go to this hidden gem for a brunch date. The cafe was spacious and cozy, decorated with wooden furnitures. The brunch menu is served on weekends from 8am to 2:30pm. We chose two dishes to share – Chicken & Waffles and Cajun Crabcake Benny.
