The local indie cafe boom has pretty much culminated, save for a few new and notable ones such as the Selfish Gene Cafe. Initially, I assumed its name was biologically linked until I realize the owner is named Gene.
Gene, as they say, is rather selfish when it comes to food, as he wouldn’t serve anything he wouldn’t eat. That I think, is a simple and honest quality check.
One of their bestsellers, their homemade banana cake is a sinful twist, with crunchy crumble, caramelized banana slices and a generous drizzle of peanut butter sauce. Wooooh, a sweet and piquant concoction in perfect harmony.
Meanwhile, the cafe hasn’t yet reached an uncomfortable crowd so savor that while it lasts!
