If you go at the right time, ambiance at Hvala will feel nice and relaxed. There are even seats where you can take off your shoes and sit cross legged at the Takashimaya outlet.
The cafe feels like a cross between an art gallery and a tea house.
We liked the simple decor and how the tables are spaced apart so that it didn’t feel so cramped.
On the Hvala menu at tea and dessert. These include tarts and cakes. and the drinks included different matcha creations.
We tried the Matcha Mont Blanc. It is made with chestnut paste, almond cream, and matcha cream. You can savour a rich matcha flavour with each bite of the gorgeous looking tart.
Another dessert we had was the Matcha Petit. This was filled with rich and intense matcha flavours. We also enjoyed the textures of the velvet matcha mousse and moist sponge cake.
Drinks available at Hvala include both hot and cold options. There are different grades of matcha available so you will have plenty of different selections to choose from.
