Coffylosophy. What a name. The grammar nazi in me is crying out "No! How could you!" but the foodie side of me is going "Suck it up. Who cares as long as the food/coffee is delicious." So there you go, the inner turmoils of my brain. Moving on.
Having opened up relatively recently (March, I believe) near the middle of Hutt Street, Coffylosophy came to my attention when dear mother mentioned she had bought some online vouchers a while ago and that they needed to be used quickly. Clearly I wouldn't be doing my Chinese heritage justice if I didn't use them so off me and a friend went to try it out.
There are a lot of food options. Aside from their specials board, they offer an all-day breakfast menu - museli, fruit salad, waffles, toast, crepes and more - and a not-as-extensive lunch menu. They also have quite a few drinks to choose from, coffee and non-coffee alike, but their main focus is the coffee. The name alone is enough to suggest that they are serious about good coffee, to which I can attest to.

I really liked the watermelon macaron. Not only does it look rather cute, but the cream filling inside was incredibly refreshing and did not taste very sweet at all. The purpleberry was also good and more softer than the watermelon.
