What do you do when the person you're supposed to meet up is running late?
I'm not really patient by nature and I used to get annoyed when schedules run late but life has taught me that delays can be an opportunity for some unexpected "Me" times and discovering places I never thought existed.
Last week's Thursday meet-up with the Husband at Chatswood was supposed to be at a Korean place that serves Korean fried chicken. And as I arrived at our meeting place on time, the Husband called to say that something came up at the office and he will be late for our dinner date.
I immediately went on "wanderlust" mode and walked around Chatswood and looked at shops and restaurants in the area. There was a Night Market at that time too but I had to go inside Westfield after a few minutes because it rained.
Since my legs were also needing rest from all the walking and I was craving for coffee, I went inside Westfield. Tucked in the corner of the 2nd level, I saw a cozy-looking cafe called Oliver Brown.
Oliver Brown is a Belgian Chocolate Cafe that serves great tasting chocolate and coffee. The cafe looks attractive with its contemporary design and iconic patterned tiling.
I just love it when restaurant owners are consistent with branding the little details inside their restaurant--like the cups and serviettes. It makes the service more personal. And yes, I always take note of these little things when I dine out.
I ordered a Cafe Latte and it was creamy and beautiful.
I love that they served a few bits of their Belgian Chocolate with their coffee. Their chocolates were delicious so I decided to buy some truffles for the Husband when he arrived.
I bought two dark chocolate truffles, two white ones and a nutty truffle. The truffles were not as expensive as the ones made by famous chocolatiers but they were good chocolate.
