The space was great albeit the Kinfolk-hipstery communal dining feel. The ceramics crafted by the collective, Weekend Workers, looked great too. However, being more of a wabi sabi kind of guy, it just seemed a tad too perfect. Overall, the only gripe I have was with the logo of Complement; The confusing and unnecessary complication of the letter ‘e’.
I ordered meself some fancy croissant in a bowl and a Papa Palheta espresso, and enjoyed the stormy friday morning reading The U Press available there. Oh, and I embarrassed myself by trying to peel off a layer of sugary stuff, with whale prints, on top of the biscuit, thinking it was a piece of wrapper. But, anyway, the espresso did not disappoint, the croissants was all fluffy on the inside and crunchy on the outside, and even the biscuit was good. Total bill: 8 bucks.
Recommendation: Spend some time browsing through the dry goods; you will find two of my favourite local brands, Sundays and Stone for Gold, hawking their wares there. And, check out Temporium’s Facebook page for weekend workshops. Lastly, don’t peel anything off the biscuit.
