[Tips]

The crazy thing is because this cafe is pretty new (newly opened less than 1 months) so you might have to queue to visit this cafe. I queued for 1 hour before I can enter and experience the cafe. The  cafe opens at 11.30am during weekday,  but people already queue from 10.30am. Crazy! You also need to queue for trying the uniform. 181128KCCH-2493
