Quietly tucked in a residential building off Perak Lane, 86 Dew Cafe is unlikely a place that you will discover by accident but it does not mean you should give it a pass. Though the place offers the standard cafe (Western) menu but the atmosphere is one of the coziest around... spacious yet equipped with comfortable chairs (reading materials available too). Prices are rather competitive as compared to those in Georgetown but the selection is more than good enough to please. Visit 86 Dew Cafe in the morning and you get to try the breakfast items while those visiting in the afternoon get to enjoy the Tea Time promotion. More to a casual-cozy dining spot in lieu of a place for absolute taste or occasion.

We raised our eye brows when Stir Fried Mushrooms was served to us.... we were a little disappointed with the measly portion. The flavor combo of the creamy Mushroom-concoction and crispy-buttery Toast was palate-pleasing; the earthiness of the Mushroom and savory cream sauce worked perfectly well with the crisp-soft Toast. It uses Eryngii Mushroom and Shimeiji so you could imagine the bold earthiness of the concoction; the only disappointment was the portion.
The Seafood Aglio Olio was alright, though not exactly amazing, it did meet the basic requirement. The Pasta could be more al-dente but flavor-wise, it was pretty standard-average. Likewise, the Double Chocolate cake was nothing out of the ordinary either; great deal if you could ride on the Tea Time promotion.
