This is their description from their facebook page:
Bowen 24 Cafe is your new neighborhood cafe in the South! Dine and get your coffee fix. We are open from 7am to 9pm! Follow our IG (@bowen24cafe)
Bowen 24 Cafe is a neighborhood cafe in the South that serves specialty coffee, breakfast plates, toasts and sandwiches, cereal bowls and more.
Ambience: The interiors were nice. The cafe has white and black details that are very dainty and edgy at the same time.
The chairs were comfortable and the details they put on the cafe was commendable.
They have this mini library corner which could be a good place for the kids or for an instagram worthy photo.
It was all good until I went to the bathroom and saw a cockroach. I asked the staff to kill it but when my friend(s) came (on different times) there was still cockroaches. Ugh ahuhuhuhu.
Service: Unfortunately they have fair-poor service. The staff were ignoring us until we talk to them and they seemed uninterested with everything around them.
Food: We ordered chocolate mousse, blueberry cheesecake and rhumbles.
The rhumbles were fine. I was expecting a cake pop like texture inside but it was just a ball of what felt like dough which was given time to cook but was taken out of the oven too early. The size was okay but it could easily be mistaken as a complimentary dish.
My friend ordered coffee. Here’s a photo
Overall verdict: I will not come back due to the cockroaches, the bad service and the dry cakes.
2 out of 5 stars for bowen 24 cafe.
(But I might buy preserved flowers from them)
