As mentioned by Joe K, we went to Chatterbox, the site of the recently closed Coffee Club for some after dinner drinks and some in depth discussions about our mutual love of food. It was a real shame that Ronnie left us early.
As with most Cafes, there was a cake cabinet at the front near the counter. Both Joe and Tomcat went and inspected it, whilst I already saw and noted what I wanted from afar. As expected, we ordered though counter service, and the food was brought out quite soon after.
Between the four of us (including baby Tomcat), we shared two pieces of cake.
Ever the doting father, Tomcat attempted Baby Tomcat to eat carrot cake as the healthier alternative. This failed abysmally, and he had to eat it alone.
To be fair, you really couldn't blame Baby Tomcat, for who could eat carrot cake when Tiramisu was an option? To her credit though, she referred to it as Chocolate Cake, and she wasn't far off. With a chocolate sponge cake base, a vanilla sponge centre, icing and chocolate on the side with cocoa on the top, there really wasn't much by way of coffee taste or flavours except for the small amount of syrup soaked into the top piece of sponge. To me, this definitely wasn't much of a tiramisu, but as a cake generally, it was reasonably moist and wasn't too coarse.
Both Joe and Tomcat had the Iced Latte, which was reportedly quite weak.
Wanting something unusual for a standard cafe, I settled on the Ocha Matcha, a kind of green tea frappe. It came out well blended and wonderfully not too sweet, though I would have enjoyed a stronger matcha taste.
