Toby's Estate

This branch  by the escalator in Shangrila Mall  was always full.  We were fortunate this afternoon to snag a table for the 5 of us just as a group was leaving. I guess it was meant to be hahaha.

I have been curious about Toby's Estate for the longest time having seen some posts at IG and how they captioned how good their coffee were.

Their pastry display all looked good especially those chunks of brownies and that green pie which turned out to be calamansi tart. So we ordered the lot with our americano and cappuccino.

Calamansi Tart P190

Their calamansi tart looked weird in a sea of  browns and dark browns of brownies and cookies. But it stood out because of its greenness. I had to order it.

I was glad I did because it was scrumptious. That green custard almost had a texture like that of a mousse. It had a silky and velvety smooth mouth feel. It also had just the right amount of  tartness from the calamansi,  a tad more and it will be overpowering. The whip cream served to complement and balance   the acidity of the tart. The crust was buttery and rich and was the perfect foil for the sourness of the calamansi.

It reminded me a lot of  Key Lime Pie but on steroids. This was better , loads better.

Cafe Americano
Americano is the least instagrammable  compared to Cappuccino or Latte for example. No wonder I forgot to take a pic of it until I have finished the whole cup hahaha. At any rate, it was good coffee indeed. The problem was I left it to the cashier to choose my grounds for me and I forgot to ask what it was that was in my Americano.  Oh well,  one  reason for me to return  to Toby's Estate in addition to that beautiful verdant tart and those chunky brownies ...

Toby's Peanut Butter Cookie P60

Both Peanut Butter and Choco Chip Variant are thin, chewy and delicious. My son dipped his cookie in the milk for my cookie and he rolled his eyes in rapture .
