So I took the opportunity to take some photos when we came here to browse around and have lunch at Cafe Sopra. For those of you who have not been there before, Cafe Sopra is located at the top floor of the Fratelli Fresh store. I have not been to Cafe Sopra since Andy Bunn 'left the building' but I would say the cafe's popularity has not dissipated. We got there at 11.45 am (perfect timing by the way!) and there was hardly anyone at the cafe but 20 mins later, there was a queue.

We had Field Mushrooms as a side, I had the Spaghettini with crab, chilli and garlic. My friend CM had the Poached chicken salad with pine nuts, green beans and red wine dressing.

CM had not been here before so she felt very trendy dining at Cafe Sopra. We enjoyed our lunch tremendously, the pasta was absolutely al dente (which is not always the case in many venues that I have been to) and the field mushrooms were cooked perfectly. I absolutely love those mushrooms. Cafe Sopra does cook them very well indeed. CM was very impressed with the mushrooms and she was very pleased with her chicken salad.
We then browsed around the Fratelli Fresh store and bought a few bits of Italian pasta and tasted some of the aged balsamic vinegar. Love the dried pasta range!

There is a kitchen section that caters for cooking classes. The group classes are free and you can even request for private cooking classes which are chargeable. The classes are taken by the chefs from Cafe Sopra.
We saved a bit of tummy space to have dessert and coffee at another location. See my next post for that instalment!
