I just found a new favorite hang-out place in town called La Ricchi. This place has been fooling me many times as I always thought that they only sell ice cream and it looked like an old-fashioned establishment where you can do nothing inside. Well, guess what? This smartass blogger, the countless times, again, proved wrong.. LOL
I went there as
gregetin.com‘s food blogger to make a
review for its blog, and at first, I really didn’t expect much from this place. When I arrived together with the team, I took a picture of the entrance, still having no expectations. But after I opened the door,
I got three surprises:
The first surprise was it turned out that La Ricchi has such a very lovely venue! Way beyond my tiny expectation. They use colorful pastel colors printings, properties, fake flowers, and grasses, and throw cute decorations in every corner. I started to get excited. For the tables and the chair, they use mostly wood, except for the one in the very front, they use pastel color chairs and a white glass table. All of them were easily movable, so light in weight, totally convenient!
the second surprise came when the owner asked us, “Do you want to sit here? Or on the second floor?” Whoa.. Okay,
I also didn't expect there would be any second floor at this place. I asked him which floor has better lighting and he answered that the second floor has an outdoor space where we could get the lighting from the sun. Nice! So, let’s go to the second floor!
There, they got two areas, the indoor and the outdoor. Both amazed me with its interior design. Still sticking with the cute and lovely theme that used pastel colors and pretty decoration in the corner, I found that the second floor’s indoor area is the coziest spot because they use such a comfy couch for its chair. Oh, and the crystal lamps were a show stopper too.
Meanwhile, the outdoor area is really colorful and pretty, I can’t even…..
I remember making the most of my time when I took pictures of the place and all the details within. It was really enjoyable because everything seems so nice. Even nicer when I spotted a power outlet below every table! Goodbye low battery *wave*
After I’m done taking pictures, we finally decided to have our dishes served on the first floor because it was easier for the waiter to deliver, the light was not as strong as on the second floor and we got the prettiest corner as our background to take pictures of the foods. And here goes
the third surprise for the day : They actually sell foods! <3<3<3
The title of the cafe itself was La Ricchi Ice Cream, so I thought they only sell ice creams or any other particular sweet things. I was totally starved when I arrived and kept hoping that they would sell something salty and meaty that I could munch. I didn’t think about it that much while I was busy taking pictures of the place, but when the food was served on the table, it felt like my prayer was answered in the sweetest way! 🙂

Overall, La Ricchi has almost all of the good features that really should be in a cafe. A cozy space, has an outdoor area, not too big, not too small, not too crowded, nice ambiance, cute decorations, friendly service, music, wi-fi, enough power outlets, daily bites, desserts, ice creams, a great deal (
they put no tax on the bill), have EDC machine, some magazines, plus a TV! Should we ask for more? 🙂
A nice space to write and work, hang out or indulge in your moment alone.
