Hello everyone! I apologize for being inactive these 2 weeks >__< I had a lot of things to take care of and I had no time to blog. I still have more products to be reviewed; but for December's starter, I'm gonna share another F&B review! I've always wanted to blog about Lareia Cake & Co. and finally I managed to write the review! I came to this cafe 2 months ago with my sister and sorry for the photos' quality, I didn't bring my camera at that moment T_T So I only could used my phone's camera, hopefully you don't mind!
Actually I've ever tried their Mille Crepes before they establish their permanent cafe; 2 years ago (if I'm not mistaken), and this was my first time visiting their permanent cafe LOL. I wondered why I couldn't ever find Lareia cafe in my previous visits to Ciputra World, eh I didn't notice if their cafe is located behind restaurants on 3rd floor ._.
Quite different with their previous temporary cafe, their permanent cafe comes in rectangular shape against to outdoor windows. If you do remember, their temporary cafe was in square shape and placed on center of floor. Captured the cafe from this angle definitely will cause backlight effect XD
Lareia's signature color is white; and for their interior, they're using combination of white, gray and brown to make this place look elegant and Instagram-worthy. The cafe was quite crowded at that moment :)

Picking one slice of Mille Crepes out of these lovely choices is a tough struggle, LOL. Eventually we picked the Bailey Coffee Mile Crepes because it was almost sold out and we thought it must be one of their favorite picks. The last time, I picked the Matcha Mille Crepes and it was good too!
|Lareia's menu: Beverage|
|Lareia's Menu: All day Brunch|
|Lareia's Menu: All day Brunch + Sides|
|Our pick: Bailey's Coffee Mille Crepes|
Bailey's Coffee Mille Crepes - IDR 36,000
It's good enough actually.. but too much cream and the texture is too smooth for my preference.
Me and my sister agreed that we won't reorder this one, because we expected that it would tasted better than this XD
Wild Berry Tea - IDR 30,000
Most of their beverages are actually over-priced and this Wild Berry tea doesn't give special impression to us either >__< It tasted sweet and little bit sour because of the pieces of strawberries.
I was wondering why they placed white paper on the table.. Are they trying to prevent any stain on the white table? Hmmm..
My conclusion? Their place is cozy and comfortable, but their menus are mostly over-priced IMHO.
Their Mille Crepes are quite good but unfortunately not my favorite >_<
