We passed this place on the way to another place for coffee. But when we got there, it was crowded. Too crowded for 2pm on a weekday afternoon. Shouldn’t these people be at work? They were probably thinking the same about us. The place was completely self-service, right from the time we entered the place to finding our own seats to joining a long queue to order the coffee. While in queue, we decided to leave and give Hero a try.
It was a good decision. There was ample seating, we were greeted with smiles and even though it was a self-service place, we were actually led to seats and handed menus which had a greater variety of food, though not of coffee.
We sat down and ordered our food. It happened to be a hot weekday afternoon — which weekday afternoon is not hot in Singapore — and the iced water we were served were welcomed relief.
This place ranks very highly for service and conscientiousness. Food was fine. If it is good coffee one is looking for, there are other places that serve really good coffee. Otherwise, this is a place to come to, to chill out over a sufficiently large variety of food and drinks. Oh, meet St Antonio, the wise crack, I mean cat, and try out the tiramisu desserts while here. Certainly, an unlikely ‘hero’ of a place for us.
