We had lunch at Basileuo Salad in Greentown the other day and the simplistic cafe in green oozes fresh energy with a focus on healthy food.

Ketps is a cafe with almost 100 % emphasis on desserts and coffee. In addition, the coffee served are a bit more “engaging” with DIY coffee art and 3D coffee art.
