Last Saturday, met up with Momo, Sue and Dino for lunch at a new ‘chi-chi’ cafe in town. COVA Pasticceria-Confetteria. Doesn’t it sound where you can find all the tai-tai’s will be at?
Cova occupies an outside area where lunch and dinner is served, and the ‘main’ shop where food’s prepared and all the delicious sinful looking cakes are displayed and it’s also where you can have a nice afternoon tea.
We sat outside, and this is the view after everyone has left. It was packed when we arrived.
We were suppose to meet another friend, but she suddenly went ‘MIA’ the last few days. Calls go unanswered etc. (haha.. it reminds us of another friend.) So only 3 of us met.
After placing our orders we were asked if we wanted any bread. Yes we did. This little thing served to us is quite yummy. It’s salty! We read that everything here’s baked at 5 am, and ready to be served for breakfast at 8 am.
Well, Momo had the Vegetarian Quiche. She said it was delicious.
Sue had the Salami Panini.
I had the Ham and Cheese Panini. Since both Sue and I were having panini, we decided to swap half of ours. Momo ate from our plates too.
The Salami was nice and so was the traditional ham and cheese which was recommended to us. They are generous with the fillings.
How does Dino come into the picture? Remember we had a MIA friend? We had an extra seat and found out that Dino was nearby. So, we asked her to join us. When she came, it was when the Tea menu starts. (3 pm).
We ordered the biggest tea set, so that we can pinch her food. 8 items in the set plus a pot of tea.
The two ladies decided they need a coffee fix. Italian Coffee!
So each of them ordered a cappuccino.
Looking at Dino’s tea set, the ladies decided to be tempted by going into the shop and they ordered these!
They sure are delicious. Good things comes in small sizes.
Here’s a peep into what’s inside.
