A Relaxing Afternoon – Espressamente illy
It’s been a few months since my last visit to the Yorkdale Mall. The last time I went, the food court area was still under construction. When I went on Monday, it was opened already. The food court even has a fancy name – Dine On 3.
My friend and I decided to check out Espressamente illy. I really liked the “outdoor” seating. There were sofas and regular tables. Besides the sofas were bright red floor lamps. The atmosphere was very casual. We decided to sit at the sofa and chill.
As for food, we ordered 2 iced cappuccino, a tiramisu and a cheesecake combo. The cheesecake wasn’t bad but the tiramisu was DELICIOUS! I will definitely get the tiramisu again next time. I’m not really a coffee drinker and when I do drink coffee, I want a lot of milk and a lot of sugar. The iced cappuccino was a bit strong for me but my friend who drinks “real coffee” said it was really good.
The cafe doesn’t offer its own free wifi but you can connect to the mall’s free wifi. However, the signal wasn’t very strong at the cafe when I tried to connect to it using my iPhone on Monday. I might bring my MacBook Air and try to do some work there next time as I really liked the atmosphere.
