The Assembly Ground – Cafe at The Cathay

The Assembly Ground occupies the first level of The Cathay in probably what is one of the few remaining tenants left at the once populated shopping mall. We were deciding a place for dinner before catching a movie upstairs so I was glad we could still find some comfort in this rustic cafe. Other than breakfast items, they also serve a small portion of dinner selection so for those who are looking for some alternatives, there are still some options to choose from
