Service: Very friendly and smiling
Facilities: Very clean. Beautiful washroom.
Strong points: A true cafe and bistro where to relax and enjoy a good light meal any time of the day. Interesting reasonable wine and cider list. lunch & Dinner menus regularly change.
It has been some time since I visited one of my favorite cafe/bistro, namely Patina in Tenma-Cho, Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City. The chef and consequently the menu have changed and a check had been on the cards for some time!
Among the noted changes, cakes are now in force and can even be taken out!
I still have to eat lunch and dinner again there but a cake and cappucino were just perfect on that afternoon!
Tarte au citron and baked cheese cake!
Apple tart and pistachio mousse tart!
But I ordered another cake with my cappucino!
I definitely recommend Patina’s cappucino!
Carefully designed as usual!
Now, this savarin has a different design!
Actually this new concept makes for an easier enjoyment!
The savarin has been directly imbibed in white rum out of the oven inside its ramequin, then cooled down and coated with cream!
Spoon it carefully!
Light and delicious!
I wonder what cake I will choose next time unless I have lunch!
Look forward to next report!
