At Block 1912, quality is their primary concern. Every item on the menu is made with the highest quality ingredients according to time-tested recipes and great attention to detail. Drinks are made with single-origin beans, and specialty-grade 100% Arabica green coffee is drip-brewed fresh throughout the day. Tea and tea lattes are infused with organic herbs, fruits, and flowers.
The café's full-bodied coffees beg for accompaniment. Thankfully, desserts and pastries—conjured from scratch out of belgian Callebaut chocolate, fresh eggs, and real cream—are made on-site by certified pastry chefs. A case full of authentic Italian gelato free of preservatives or artificial flavours cools off patrons with scoops of 26 flavors such as salted caramel or mojito. For meals, chefs use home recipes to whip up fresh salads, soups, and sandwiches, which are grilled and made to order. Even with the spread of fine food and drinks, the lively neighbourhood hangout—site of engagements and wedding receptions of its devotees—would be incomplete without community events, so Block 1912 regularly hosts live music, book signings, and gallery openings, as well as coffee and wine tastings for a more in-depth look at its specialty products.
