Opened by the folks behind The Replacement & Faculty of Caffeine, comes Shakespeare Milkshakes, located just around the corner from The Replacement. The cafe has a neat and simplistic interior, much like The Replacement. We heard that this cafe is known for their milkshakes and waffles so we decide to drop by after previous unsuccessful attempts to visit it.


Waffle with Uji Matcha Soft Serve (RM 18)


Although milkshakes are the titular star of this cafe, we were pretty full and just decided to have their waffles which I saw on my Instagram feed back then. Other flavours include chocolate and vanilla but I jumped when they had a Matcha flavoured soft serve.

To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much from the waffles but they were surprisingly crispy outside and fluffy inside. The matcha soft serve was robust and bittersweet and I was impressed with the quality of the soft serve. It had the intense bitter and sweetness of an authentic Uji Matcha and needless to say, I was sold.

We saw other tables ordering the milkshakes and I will definitely be back for it.
