Homing in on Homebodies

There's always a time for good coffee and Cuchi knows that very well. She recalled that Henry's Congressional has closed due to the Henry Park Apartment en bloc but she remembered the guys behind Smitten did set up another joint at Boat Quay. In order to fix her craving for coffee, she decided to head down to Homebodies for some caffeine fix.

It was a bit tough to find Homebodies as it is located on the 2nd floor of one of the shophouses. But once Cuchi found it, she realised that Homebodies now stood on the premises of a long forgotten absinthe bar.

The menu at Homebodies, simple and concise.

Long Black:
Cute Cute was expecting the coffee to be a bit more acidic but he was rather surprised that the long black was pleasantly balanced.

The milk based coffees came in 4,6 and 8 ounces. Cuchi and friends found the latte a little weak, mayhaps a double shot would be better for the milk based coffee?

Banana Bread
The banana bread tasted more like banana cake but still it's good. Goes well with the coffees.
Don't forget Homebodies has craft beer as well!
Cute Cute had an American Burger Beer.

Homebodies is a lovely place to hang out especially during the weekends.  If you do get jaded of work, once in a while, you can just sneak upstairs for a brief respite and enjoy a cup of coffee. For food, the hotdogs were decent but not memorable.
