Italian duo Cristina and Fabrizio take coffee and dessert street food to another level by serving up Italian coffees, tea, hot chocolate, shaved ice drinks, and their dessert speciality, tiramisu.

We were recommended to try the Classico and the vegan soy-based Classico tiramisu in a cup. The Classico had a subtle coffee flavour in the layers of ladyfingers and lots of creamy and rich mascarpone. The vegan Classico cup had a strong soy flavour, but we were thrilled to see the option on the menu! Cups are available as small, regular, or large serves, with the small serving being enough to share between two. Tiramisu is sweet, so best accompanied with a strong expresso, which you can conveniently order at the same location.

We also tried the latest creation, made for the super sweet-toothed, tiramisu on a stick. More decadent than the Classico cup, the sweet mascarpone (tastes almost like condensed milk) is encased in a dark chocolate shell dusted with cocoa, with a surprise coffee soaked ladyfinger biscuit inside. How divine does this look? Trust me, choose this option but don't forget the espresso alongside!
