Coffee Drink ChallengeSpade
Perché No! (Why Not!)
(AKA “why not!” in Italian)
Price: $7.50
Created by: Kathleen Pearce and Chloe Wood

Description: Spade’s offering to this year’s Signature Coffee Drink Challenge is a reflection of what we strive and stand for here at Spade; creativity, innovation, quality and fun! Our “Perche No (Why Not!) consists of a 6oz latte made with ginger spiked whole milk, our Settebello espresso, a dreamy layer of sweet chantilly cream flushed with beetroot, and finally topped with a spiced pistachio and orange sugar tuille – which we make in house, every day. You can crack the top of the tuille with a spoon (think crème brulee!) – or dip the tuille into the sweet cream and coffee. Here at Spade we scale and measure every shot of espresso to create balance and perfection in every cup of coffee. Come in today and indulge with us – Why not!

Times offered: 8AM-6PM, 7 days a week ..

Republica Coffee Roasters Cafe
Aztec Mocha
Price: $5.50 small (12oz); $6.25 large (16oz)

Description: This spicy mocha is our take on the classic Chilly-Chocolate combination. The spicy flavour of chili combined with aromatic dark chocolate makes for an exhilarating taste experience. Our Aztec Mocha gets you into a chocolaty bliss before BOOM! The taste of the chili bursts through the chocolate and sets your mouth on fire with the explosion of taste.
