Cafe Sketchwalk 1.2 - The Broers Cafe

The sparse and cavernous interior of The Broers Cafe
What defines coffee? Is it a habitual cuppa to get your morning grooves, or a cup of sunshine on a cold, rainy day? At Broers, coffee is an ever changing experience depending on what you drink, how you drink it, and when you drink it.

But coffee is only one aspect when you step into the Broers Cafe. Amazing things happen here on a daily basis because we work magic with our brew. There are no rocket sciences involved. Simply start with a great cup of coffee, continue with a conversation and suddenly, you are connected by a common experience. Don’t be too surprised when you find yourself sharing this one-of-a-kind intimacy with someone else across the room. At the Broers Café, our brew is 10% caffeine and 90% soul. This explains the warm fuzziness you feel spreading in your belly and the inexorable Cheshire grin that follows afterwards.

Come down to the Broers Café today and discover more about what goes into our cup of brown nirvana. Leave your inhabitations at the door, order your java, kick back in your seat and prepare to embark on an epicurean adventure!

Broers. We make great coffee and even better company.
The above is the text from The Broers Cafe website.

However, the obverse could not be more true. My friend and I went in and experience the cold atmosphere in the cafe - both physically and emotionally. All except for one lady of the service staff greeted us. When we asked to find out more about the cafe, the owner, could not even be bothered to look at us, directed us to the website instead. And this message was conveyed to us via the service staff, who was the only warm face during our visit.

When I finally got the chance to visit the website, I couldn't help but laugh at the ridiculous irony that was written on it. It could well have been gibberish and gobbledy-gook, because it describe a completely different place that my friend and I encountered.

With so-so coffee and even worse service, I would neither recommend nor visit again.
