Keep in Touch Cafe is a rustic themed bistro with indoor and outdoor seating options. Inside is a cozy house arranged with vintage furniture, pedestaling vases full of fun flowers. Outside in the back, past a splashy and multi-tiered fountain, is a modest sized greenhouse; ideal for those who enjoy basking languorously in the rays of the golden sun, and appreciate pots of little trees and prickly cacti. Both lounging locations offer peace and escape; in keeping with its idyllic image and ambiance. Indeed, the bucolic interiors along with the handsome gardens on this property make it a favorite destination for the voguish set, and thus very worthy of appearing in a glossy magazine of the homes and gardens variety.

For this gourmet sojourn at Keep in Touch, yours truly ordered a matcha latte, sans sugar; in a fit of curiosity to experience what pure green tea and just milk tastes like. Decidedly, somewhat bitter; like a caffè latte without sweeteners. Still relatively enjoyable though, and a very good amount of foam to boot; but perhaps a sugar cube or three next time.
