Breakfast woes

I am that lazy person who does not feel like getting up early on weekends and dressing up to go out for breakfast but I managed to somehow do that with an empty stomach. Me and my friend were roaming in sahara when we bumped into this nice coffee house called Icons coffee couture where they had a lovely vibe going on so we ordered Intercontinental breakfast platter which comprises of two fried eggs, two hashbrowns, labneh, grilled tomato with cheese, ricotta, fresh bread, orange juice and a hot beverage of choice.

So glad that the orange juice was fresh and had fair quantity of pulp in there. And the basket with buns and breads was awesome. The bread was so soft and so were the buns. Loved these! But the breakfast platter itself was a let down. The sunny side up eggs were over cooked and the hashbrowns were dry.

Loved the glasses in which they served juice and tea. I got green tea instead of coffee and it was nice. The staff was friendly and the service was quick. They overcharged my friend while swiping her credit card but then she contacted them and they quickly resolved her issue and reimbursed her the extra deducted money. Thank you very much for that.

Exploring Grano coffee house vibes


Grano coffee is right outside rigga metro station and they have raised the dessert game to another level by serving warm crepes, waffles and pancakes along with some freshly brewed coffee, latte, cappuccino, espresso and americano.


You’ll notice people working on their laptops while sipping on their shakes and fresh coffee. The coffee house has some cozy vibes with comfortable couch to spend some quality time at.


I tried their nutella crepe which was beautifully wrapped in luscious nutella and the crepe itself was velvety soft. There were crushed lotus biscuits inside the crepe that elevated my happiness. Then I got my hands on the chocolate mini pancakes that were utterly delicious and I would recommend these to people who don’t want to have too much chocolate.


Next, came the chocolate mini waffles that were little blocks of heaven. They were rich and creamy and the moment you bite into one, the chocolate burst is unbelievable.


Sushi crepe was awesome! there were fresh strawberries lined across the crepe and the entire dessert turned out fantastic.

Their pistachio shake was the real deal! I would definitely recommend you order that.


Thank you for having us grano coffee. Loved the cozy vibes. A definite recommendation!

Luxuriously Satisfying desserts at The Living Room

If you have a bossy sweet tooth that is not impressed easily then you have to check out ‘the living room” in Mercato Mall. They have a fancy pink vibe that’s quite evident the moment you step in. It’s not a big place but they have decorated it beautifully with sweet messages like the ones you can see in pictures below:

I was really impressed by the decor and great music playing throughout the time I dined in here.

Extremely challenging to pick a few treats out of a wide variety of drool worthy pretty desserts and drinks. I finally decided to go with unicorn roulade and pink karak milkcake (their best seller) along with a Rose pink latte.

The unicorn roulade was a dream come true for the kid in me because that slice of cake was super cute and layered with creme cheese with such perfection that it was balanced out when you look at it. Each layer was intact and colorful sprinkled with mini hearts on top to make your heart skip a beat.

Then I had the best milk cake of my life which was quaint and absolutely gorgeous from top to bottom. As, nowadays its all about theater food- the cake is topped with a giant fluffy pink cotton candy that melts away when you pour the rose milk concoction all over.

All these sweet treats paired fabulously with my Rose latte that was strong and not loaded with sugar. It had subtle hints of rose and needless to say that it looked amazing! Don’t believe me? Just watch!

Thank you so much for hosting me “The Living Room” I thoroughly enjoyed the treats and look forward to visiting you again.
