Newly-opened Richmond coffee shop, Zenstone Coffee, may have a name that sounds low-key, but the desserts from this spot are anything but.
Zenstone only opened at the end of July, but the Capstan Way eatery has already been garnering our attention because of its menu of over-the-top desserts and house made waffles in flavours like plain, matcha, and custard.
Some of the items teased on the cafe’s Facebook and Instagram pages are enough to have you drooling on the screen, such as The Affogato Egg (vanilla ice cream, leige waffle with house made vanilla custard filling, whip cream, toasted almond, espresso shot) and The Chocolate Egg – a combo of house made waffle with house made chocolate custard filling, chocolate ice cream, topped with whip cream, Oreo crumb, chocolate pocky, and served with chocolate sauce.
There’s also The Rose Strawberry Egg (waffle with rose strawberry custard filling, strawberry ice cream, whip cream, strawberry pocky, strawberry crumb, rose petals, and strawberry sauce) along with the matcha version of this dessert – the Matcha Waffle Egg.
This treat combines house made waffle with house made matcha custard filling, topped with red bean, whip cream, and matcha pocky, all served with premium matcha shot.
Aside from a selection of coffees and teas, Zenstone offers a variety of specialty drinks such as a Match White Chocolate Frappe and caffeinated beverages topped with latte art.
Patrons here can expect lava cheesecake mousse and strawberry mouse too – so it’s safe to say that when you do hit up Zenstone for the first time, come hungry and don’t plan on denying your cravings for the sweet stuff.
Zenstone is open Wednesday to Monday from noon to 8 pm.
