If you are in Bellevue, you have to check out Cafe Aloe – this is not my first time posting about this place. But they have so many great drinks and food, I had to go back for more! This time I tried their cute steamed buns that look like little pigs – they are almost too cute to eat….almost! They come in 3 flavors – molten custard, custard, and taro. The molten custard is runny and flows like lava. It has a great flavor, but the texture is a bit grainy. The regular custard was my favorite – it was creamy and thick! And finally the taro flavor – personally I couldn’t really taste the difference between the taro and custard. I also grabbed their BBQ Pork Bun and Green Onion Bun. Both were delightful, but if you’re wanting something a bit more substantial grab their BBQ Pork Bun. The Green Onion had a great flavor, but it was mostly just bready, the pork was filled with tasty, sweet BBQ! They were a great afternoon snack that didn’t fill me up too much, but perfectly satisfied my hunger. My favorite drink is definitely their Cookies and Crema – it is not overly sweet and will give you the caffeine kick you desperately need in the afternoon. Another delicious drink option is their Coconut Latte – it has a subtle coconut flavor with a hint of sweetness from the white chocolate. Definitely opt for this one if you are looking for something on the slightly sweeter side.
Overall this place is great for a drink and snack. The staff is so friendly and it is a large, open space perfect for working or studying if you need a break from your office or home!
