Dutch Colony Coffee & Windowsill Pies

I wasn’t too fond of Windowsill’s Strawberry Lemon Pie which tasted, for lack of a better word, artificial to me. Maybe it’s just me and my tastebuds because I can’t doubt that they use fresh ingredients and make things from scratch. Or maybe I’m just spoilt by C&C’s awesome passonfruit/ lemon curd 😦

Their Banana Almond Brittle on the other hand was pretty special and delicious too. It’s probably because there’s almond brittle in it- I have a soft spot for almonds. The salty caramel was okay… but it’s hard to trump C&C’s salty caramel (I should stop making comparisons sorry.). The banana flavour incorporated in the mousse was light and fragrant and it went well with everything else. That said I’m still not a fan of their price, or the tiny portions. Ah well, most places charge a premium anyway for handmade perfection.

Everyone has been praising Dutch Colony Coffee to no end so we had to try it. My plebeian tastebuds can’t differentiate the coffee from different cafes (at least I can differentiate between a kopi kosong from school and a long black in a cafe right?) but my long black was very thick and strong- this is a good thing of course.

For once I’m not going to whine about how cafes outsource their food and overcharge because DCC does not charge an extra premium for their Windowsill Pies. Kudos to them!
