Paper + Toast
November 22, 2010
Billed as a "mobile office cafe," Paper + Toast offers a calm, clean space for customers to get some work done while munching on light bites.
All the crucial conveniences are available: Internet access, alongside photocopy, fax & printing facilities and private meeting rooms equipped with projectors.
The menu is limited, mainly comprising salads, sandwiches & cakes. The Greek salad, featuring mixed greens, tomatoes, red onions, olives, feta cheese & lemon vinaigrette, was soggier than expected, but still tangy and refreshing enough to enjoy.
Their specialty sandwich: grilled chicken lightly marinated in fish sauce, served with julienned carrots, cilantro & mayo in a toasted baguette. Not outstanding, but fairly flavorsome and not too messy to eat. Wouldn't want mayo spilling all over our laptops, right?
Cupcakes! Zen @ Work (green tea with ginger cream) & Stress Buster (vanilla with chocolate frosting). Could have been more moist, but we were here at the end of the day after all. It might be better to visit for brekkie, lunch or tea, when everything is fresher.
Rice pudding topped with strawberry jam. These creamy concoctions, on the other hand, were awesomely addictive. Soft, sweet treats to help ease the Monday blues.
Booze isn't sold here, but customers can bring their own, with no corkage charge. Service is friendly and helpful; regular glasses were provided for us to sip this Villa Maria Private Bin Sauvignon Blanc 2009 (Marlborough), purchased from wineactually.com. P.S. I know, it looks like water in these glasses, but it really is wine. Hmmmm...
