Joss and I went to Greens & Co last week specifically so she could have a slice of the lemon and lime brulee – which she’d enjoyed on multiple occasions in the past. To be honest, I was a little apprehensive as I’ve found the cakes at Greens and Co to be very hit and miss.
Looking through the multiple cabinet displays, there were so many cakes to choose from it was overwhelming. Eventually, I settled on the strawberry cheesecake.
It looked delicious but turned out to be rather tasteless and disappointingly, there was very little texture difference between the base and cheesecake filling. It became difficult to eat after the initial few forkfuls.
However, the lemon and lime brulee lived up to Joss’ word – it was soft, smooth and melted in my mouth. The tangy citrus flavour helped to cut through the sweetness and thankfully Joss did not mind sharing ;)
The ambience of the place was very comfortable; old couches to lounge on arranged around coffee tables, board games, self-serve water, a ceiling full of white lanterns and walls plastered with music posters. The music in the cafe was a little loud for my taste, but I suppose a little extra background noise helps with privacy, as the tables are fairly close together.
For those of you who are gluten intolerant, they had a gluten-free chocolate cake there that looks quite nice :)
Are you a fan of Greens & Co? What cakes have you had there that you’ve liked?
