Coffee, croissants and tarts at The Coffee Room N-106

IMG_7594 (2)ENTERING the Coffee Room N-106 was like stepping into a fabulous private room adorned with exquisite decorations.

While a group of Russians was having coffee and a lively conversation at one of the tables, a friendly food staffer guided me and my companion to the table near the counter and handed each of us a one-page menu. I ordered cappuccino and quickly scanned the sheet hoping to see croissants. I was not disappointed. Our food staffer said the croissants were freshly baked and kept warm, and he was right.

My companion ordered Napoleon Tart which was served a few minutes after his latte macchiato. My companion was not exactly a lover of desserts or anything sweet and it was amusing to see him quickly finish his Napoleon Tart. At first glance, it looked like an ordinary pudding but we were told the tart wIMG_7625as made of 21 very thin layers of puff pastry and alternate assorted delicious fillings and served in just the right size — big enough to fill you and small enough to make you want more.
I tried a bite, thinking it was too sweet for my taste but it was not. It was very good and I had to stop before I finish it. I went back to my croissant. It was warm, crunchy and flaky and not at all oily. It was the kind that melted in your mouth.

The Coffee Room offers a variety of coffee including espresso, double espresso, Americano, double Americano, cappuccino, café latte and latte macchiato — all from $3.75 to $5.50.
It also serves other beverages: signature teas, milk, orange juice, fresh orange juice, apple juice, Aqua Panna, S. Pellegrino and Coca Cola in a bottle.
