Into the Woods Cafe
Styled after the musical of the same name, which intertwines a number of popular Brothers Grimm fairy tales, Into the Woods is a bright and spacious cafe, lovingly designed by adorable owner Kim and her architect dad. Entering the shop is like walking straight into a fairy tale, complete with indoor trees, a colourful wall mural of classic storybook scenes (from Hansel and Gretel to Cinderella), and a floor-to-ceiling bookshelf stocked with literature-lover Kim’s childhood book collection. Adorable as it is, the cafe is also a great place to get work done, with free wifi, comfy couches, and plenty of large tables. The menu is small, but that’s a good thing, because everything on it is excellent. Kim’s mom is head cook, and whips up a number of Thai and Western dishes, including bacon and egg chiffon and her special Into the Woods pork, an old family recipe of falling-off-the-bone marinated pork ribs served with yummy sesame sauce and rice. For dessert, don’t miss the homemade roll cakes (choco-banana was our favourite) or the marshmallow-topped key lime pie. Wash it all down with one of Kim’s loveable lattes (she specialises in animal-shaped latte art) or her unique green tea jelly drinks.
