November 8 Coffee & Company is a cafe that’s situated inside the building of Thomson V Two. It’s one of the latest additions to the Thomson neighbourhood, along with OZ Specialty Coffee. November 8 was opened by 3 friends, all who shared a similar passion of quality food. The cafe is also by the same people of the now-defunct Barbacoa Restaurant that was housed in City Square Mall.
November 8 has a very old-school, retro style for it’s interior. The place is filled with wooden chairs & tables that have colorful highlights. Even the pipes on the ceiling are painting with pastel colours, giving the place a fun yet quirky look. The cafe also has some vintage rattan chairs strewn around the back for more leisure seating. Dim warm lighting with coffee bean bags above the ceiling add to the overall vintage look of the cafe. I do like how spacious the cafe is, unlike many others that seem like it’s about to implode from the amount of people in it.
November 8 also has a much bigger space compared to OZ Specialty Coffee, though both cafes are quite different from one another & are both great in their own way. Whereas OZ is easily located, being on the exterior of the building & all, November 8 is a tad more hidden. The cafe is located inside the building towards the side where you have to enter a small corridor.
November 8 offers the typical All-Day Breakfast menu items, with dishes such as Eggs Benedict, Big Breakfasts and even a selection of waffles. The coffee they serve here use beans from Dutch Colony with a blend of 3 different countries, Sumatra, Brazil & El Salvador. They also offer some mains & pizzas for those who don’t feel like having breakfast food. Aside from their food menu, November 8 also has a small selection of cakes at the counter, though they are from an outside supplier.
Prices for November 8 are pretty decent, most items are around the 15 dollar mark. No service fees or GST charges here!
I’ve actually been to November 8 around three times. My first two times were rushed & I finally decided to make a proper third visit so that I could do a proper review. The place has since gained a lot of popularity and it was really packed on my third visit.
Worth A Visit/Revisit?
November 8 is definitely worth checking out. Though it’s among the numerous other cafes in the Thomson area, it still manages to differentiate itself from them. Good food, good coffee, great laidback space, November 8 also offers free Wi-Fi. It’s a great place to relax & hangout or perhaps to do some work when there’s no crowd.
