(Review) 8 OZ Coffee Studio

Lately, i heard this cafe's name everywhere.
Almost everyone talks about it.
So, here we go.
To satisfy our curiosity.
Here is their menu.

You'll get this for free and look at that jar !
isn't it so cute ?

Some people say their coffee is worth to try so i try their iced cafe latte and iced cappuccino. Love it !
But, for those of you "coffee lovers" i don't think its enough. Its still can't beat Java Dancer's coffee.

Also, i tried their Meat Bagel. 
It taste like Mc* burger. Maybe because of the mustard in it.
Its still delicious though.

This is the-lot-burger.
I love this way more than the Meat Bagel.

They also have smoking and non smoking room in their place which is very convenience. This cafe is worth to try. Next time, i want to try their crispy wings, sandwich or maybe waffle. 

Have you tried this cafe ?
what do you think ?
