However, there is still the formidable queue. Except for my first vist, where the wait time was only 30 minutes, all my subsequent visits have only been attempts... I am just unwilling to spend so much time waiting. You could get a queue ticket and wait for their staff to call you... They called me but it was 90 minutes later and I was already at another coffee shop. (Reservation is only available from Monday to Thursday.)
So let's talk about the tea set. It's non-traditional - no scone, no jam, no clotted cream, not even a cup of earl grey. It also changes frequently. The star of the set is the napoleon. It's small but it's comparable to the one from Robuchon. Everything else was not as memorable. I also wish they have more selection on drinks (gimme my earl grey~~~).

|I prefer earl grey but...|
Again, don't expect five-star services (you can't even expect that in five-star hotels these days) but it's a local shop that I will return if I don't have to wait (dream on).
