Pronounced chen’ tro, Centro is one of the latest additions to the Taka cafe scene that’s grabbed our tastebuds and tickled the interior designer in us. If the spectacularly marbled yellow counter doesn’t accost your eyeballs, then the shelves over flowing with freshly baked breads and sweet treats will. And we haven’t even mentioned the menu yet.

Seeking an easy brekkie? Go with the MYOB (make your own breakfast). Alternately unleash your sweet tooth on the incredibly decadent butterscotch waffles – complete with an upturned ice cream in the cone. Or if you’re after something larger, the brunch burgers and crispy pork buns are next level good.

It's the perfect spot to meet and eat your day away, inside or out.
