Just across the street from the popular and charming K Ki lies a new coffee hideout called Shots where you can sip on a hot or cold cuppa to wile your afternoon away. Take your seat outside to enjoy the natural breeze (of which, there is little along Ann Siang Hill to be honest), or seek refuge in the air-conditioned indoors.
Walking into the small interior of Shots feels like walking into a little private art gallery with several tasteful pictures on display. Service here is commendable as the baristas are warm and friendly, though I do feel that it can be a wee bit unsettling to have a mini book "altar" of Pastor Joseph Prince's books right up at the centre of the counter. It's quite in-your-face, but at least there was no attempt to sell one of those books to me. Just coffee for me will do.
The Caffe Mocha was quite alright, and it warms you up inside nicely. It was a good gesture to add in a tiny macaron, but truth be told it's one of the oddest macarons that I've tried because it's way too soft, almost like a marshmallow in fact. Didn't have much of a flavour to it so I just slurped it up with the mocha.
Apologies for the poor photography this time round, Rachel (yes, that's the name of my DSLR) wasn't feeling very right this afternoon. Be prepared to endure such things when you give your camera a feminine name I guess, haha! One of the baristas, who could very well be the owner, was looking at me struggling with the camera and at the end (and with a smile) offered me a brochure about the photography courses offered by Shots. Oooh, so it's more than shots of coffee, but of photography as well! Took me a while to realise that heh.
$5.80 for the caffe mocha
