With a simple concept and delicious offerings, Light Cafe is certainly brightening up the Baldwin village area. Light Cafe is rooted in Taiwanese cuisine and serves up light and colourful drinks to pair with gourmet sandwiches, salads and bowls. Not just a lunch spot — or not encouraging only savoury foods for lunch — there is an extensive sweets section on the menu with waffles and mille feuilles coming in flavours like charcoal black sesame and mango yuzu, respectively. Light Cafe has close to the same amount of listings for its beverages as it does food, boasting more than 10 varieties of loose leaf teas that can also be made into milky drinks and slushes, in addition to its coffees, Italian sodas and more. With a wall of greenery adjacent to a massive front window, there is only one word to describe being inside and eating this tasty food: it is, of course, in the best way possible, light.
