After eating delicious Korean food at H Mart, Bomi, Romy, Rhea and I headed over to get dessert at Franklin Fountain. When we got out of the train station, we were greeted by a long collection of shops that I got distracted by and begged everyone to follow along with me to explore before heading over to Franklin Fountain.
As we were walking along, the Stitch Tsum Tsum plushie in one of the stores caught my eye; I have one of those! (One of my very few purchases from the overpriced Disney Store.) I peered through the windows and found an adorable cafe, Happily Ever After. We’d just finished brunch and were still pretty stuffed so nobody felt like buying anymore to eat, which meant we wouldn’t be allowed to linger in the cafe. Defeated, we continued walking down the street. But when we finished scoping out the area, Happily Ever After was still on my mind, so I begged everyone to go back and check it out with me.
Happily Ever After is the cutest. cafe. ever. It’s definitely not a “trendy” modern minimalist cafe. And I love it. Even the shopkeeper was adorable. He just simply gave off a happy aura, and when I looked at him, I couldn’t help but feel happy too. I couldn’t help but think, Of course he owns this adorable cafe. I feel like going back to this cafe to find out his story and the story behind the cafe.
I got an acai bowl and a chocolate and espresso smoothie, and Rhea got a creme brulee topped with strawberries, though after looking up Happily Ever After online once we had left, I found that they seem to be known for their Belgian waffles and decadent toppings. They also serve shaved ice and bubble tea, so I’m inclined to think that this cafe has an Asian flair.
This mask was my favourite interior detail, even though I’ve never watched V for Vendetta, but I’ve just watched the trailer whilst drafting this post and the movie doesn’t seem as creepy as I thought it was, so I might give it a watch this summer.
tl;dr– Happily Ever After is a movie themed dessert cafe.
