There is a new coffee place in Richmond. I decided to check it out with Polly for our probably last cake meet before the school closes for summer break. This could be our last cake meet on Tuesdays as Polly had resigned from her present job. When she looks for another job after summer, she may not get a day off during the week day and there goes our cake meet. But I wish her well in her new job seeking.
Agape Coffee is located inside President Plaza, next to T&T.
All the furnishings and equipments in Agape Coffee look brand new. We were expecting to see more desserts and cheesecakes as advertised in the Richmond Review but was quite disappointed. They only have two types of biscotti and a pastry type cookie at the moment.
The decoration is simple and rustic with brick wall and wooden tables and chairs. We had the most comfortable seats which is two sofas by the glass wall overlooking the street.
I ordered a medium Macchiato Coffee for $3.70. I learned from the server that Macchiato is like Cappuccino with more milk and foam. They do have good coffee.
Polly ordered a small Almond Latte for $3.30.
We only ordered a Prosciutto Panini to share since there is not much to choose from. The panini costs $5.99. Other than the strong herb flavour from the bun, there is nothing much to shout about the panini.
We were the only dine in customers when we were there from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm. There were a few customers who ordered to go. It’s always a challenge to start a business and it takes time for the business to establish in new location. I wish them luck and hope they will serve more desserts to go with their coffee.
