The House of Robert Timms

21 Mar

Coffee for you? What can be better than a cup of coffee and desserts after dinner and shopping? After a long and tiresome shopping of electronic gadgets along Orchard Road, us having sweet tooth, wanted to look for a place to relax and have some desserts and drinks. Happened to chance across this pleasant and cosy looking cafe, The House of Robert Timms at Orchard Shopping Centre. I’m sure this name sounds familiar to you. Yes, you are right. You probably can find their coffee at the stores of  your local market place.

The House of Robert Timms, being one of the oldest Australia’s Companies, is truly one of the hidden gem in the busy streets of Orchard Road. From instant coffee to freshly roasted coffee beans, you name it all. The House of Robert Timms is fully equipped to give you a good caffeine fix. The outlet at Orchard Shopping Centre, happens to be the 2nd outlet in Singapore. The first outlet was at Wheelock Place.

We took our seats and ordered the chocolate devotion cake, piccolo latte and Mocha coffee. Fans of chocolate, will definitely like the cake. The cake was soft and moist, the dark chocolate literally melts in your mouth and i reckoned that you will be satisfied with how good the taste is. The cake was perfectly executed, not too sweet and was chilled. I simply like the way it is. I should thank the waitress for giving me such a pleasant experience since she was the one who recommended the cake. Thumbs up!

The coffee smells so goooooood. The Piccolo latte was good. Rich, nutty and smooth. While its only 90ml, is good for a quick coffee fix. Me being a hardcore coffee lover, my only complain was that it can be more robust. I like it stronger, but that’s just me. Piccolo latte had been raved by others for its rich and robust taste. So I guess you can’t go wrong with this.

The mocha was good too. The art was exquisite and tasted nice, though on the sweet side. You can take it on its own. Girlfriend prefers sweet stuff, so mocha is the first choice for her. If you are a die hard chocolate fan or one with sweet tooth, then this is the choice for you.

We have a wonderful and pleasant experience at The House of Robert Timms. Aside from the food and drinks, the service here is top-notch. I should really commend their good service. The staffs are very attentive and will fill up your glass with water without you asking for it.

From the likes of the connoisseur concerto, Starbucks, Coffee Club, Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, now we have The House of Robert Timms. The House of Robert Timms opened up our choices and I would definitely shortlist them as one of the recommended cafes. We left satisfied and will definitely be back again.

Verdict: 8/10 (I reserve 2 marks since I never try the main course)

    Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.
