The marshmallows are wonderful when served with beverages. The cafe offers selected beverages to pair with the marshmallows: Milo, milk, coffee, tea, hot cocoa and green tea.

Dunking espresso marshmallow into the cup of black coffee is a way of consuming the soft marshmallow or you can wait for it to melt away into a layer of aromatic foam.

What a cute little place. I would love to try a marshmellow in some hot cocoa or coffee. Those stools are pretty funny, do all of them say that?
