Westies rejoice as more cafes will be opening at Faber Drive.
This is also where the hole-in-the-wall cafe, GLASS Roasters is located. (They have also quickly opened another outlet at Mohamed Sultan Road near River Valley.
For those who are familiar with Gelato Labo at Jalan Besar, they have also opened a second outlet next to GLASS Roasters.
The joint collaboration between both GLASS Roasters and Gelato Labo offers a menu different from the outlet at Cavan Road, probably somewhere along the line of coffee with gelato such as an affogato.
With a small dine-in area, the seats are arranged in a U-Shape structure that promotes interaction between the barista and the diners.
There is a certain charm to the half-furnished interior.
Combining both rustic element with a clean, white tiled furnishing and matte blue seats, the small-cosy area can sit up to 8 persons at any one time.
The menu is short and concise for now, with only black ($4.50) and white ($5.80) on the menu.
Iced, Soy/ Oat milk and a Large cup with an additional espresso shot is charged at an extra $1.
As GLASS Roasters, both the hot and iced drinks are served in double-walled Bodum glass (literally reflected in the name of the cafe) instead of ceramics cups.
The hot drinks are 5oz each with single shot of espresso whereas large cups (additional $1) and Iced drinks (additional $1) are 8oz and consisted of double shots of espresso.
Using a single origin from Columbia, the coffee beans are roasted by the barista himself at Glyph Supply Co.
My cup of White ($5.80) was smooth and robust, not too acidic and well balanced.
The Iced White ($6.80) which contains double shots of espresso has a stronger caffeine kick compared to a regular cup of White.
I’m looking forward to the synergistic menu items between the upcoming Gelato Labo and GLASS Roasters that they can bring to the Westies.
