Wheatfield

Few cafes are as alluring as one that's flooded with glowingly fresh pastries; baking bread & brewing coffee is this outlet's passion, eating & drinking it all up would be ours.

Wheatfield is Bukit Damansara's latest bakery-restaurant; its selection isn't as staggering as The Bread Shop's, but it's still a hot spot for oven-warmed fare like this enjoyably chewy walnut roll & custard-soft frangipane tart, saturated with the aroma of almonds.

Raisin scone & chocolate chip muffin. Rich, moist & satisfyingly flavorsome, even at seven p.m., an hour before the cafe was scheduled to close for the night.

Latte & cappuccino. Thanks to this trip, we're finally able to tell the difference between both beverages, though we can't say for sure which we prefer.

Sandwiches & other snacks are also available.


Wheatfield Bakery & Cafe,
Plaza Damansara, Jalan Medan Setia 2,
Bukit Damansara, Kuala Lumpur.
Closed Sundays.

  3. Ah, this love of bread that we have... I have to admit I'm infatuated too, especially when paired with a cappuccino or two. :P

  4. Not so hot on the carb-management front but there's something tranquil about the Bkt Damansara neighbourhood that screams for freshly baked goods and a cuppa!

  5. michelle: yeps, it's nice that we're getting a wider variety of doughy delights here! though it's bad for our waistlines, heheh :D
    ckiong: yeah, if The Bread Shop is full or closed, you can swing by this place instead! i think the bread at The Bread Shop is better so far, but the coffee here seems pretty good =)

  6. kenny: therein lies the dilemma for someone like me who doesn't really love coffee, tea or juice. what other beverage can i pair with a croissant. wines and bubblies are not the most complementary partners :D
    min: yeah, i guess bukit damansara is the closest thing we have to lush suburbia. mont kiara is like a constellation of condominiums, and other neighborhoods like TTDI and hartamas are just shophousey =)

  7. I know the perfect pairing for a croissant and you may well agree - try tear off a chunk and dipping the croissant into a saucer of half-boiled eggs. YUMMY.

  8. kenny: brilliant! i've never thought of that or even seen it offered on any menu (not even in the homeland of croissants)! i suppose it's only available (for now) at casa la kenny! :D

  9. that's it?? Your dinner??? Hmmm...

  10. leo: heheh, only a pre-dinner snack! :D

  11. OOhh love the breads! Had tonnes of those in the hotel in Philippines :P Especially hot ones!

  12. iamthewitch: yeah, bread can be so addictive! warm and comforting. you could even give me some freshly toasted bread with butter & sugar, and i'll be happy :D

  13. this looks like a good place for a cuppa with some nicely fresh baked breads. I love both latte and cappucino.

    ReplyDelete
  14. eiling: heh, i'm still struggling to tell the difference between latte, cappuccino, macchiato, mocha, americano and everything else! :D

  15. More breads!! finally we do not have to eat those empty soft white breads/buns anymore!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Rebecca: heheh, maybe I'll start missing that old-fashioned bread after awhile! Maybe can buy a loaf from 7-11 :D

  17. We'll go have that the next round. We find the best croissants we can possibly find in KL, then run over to a kopitiam and have it there.

    You might have to bribe the kopitiam proprietor with a bottle from your stash of booze for him/her to allow us to bring outside food in though.

    Alternatively, we'll sneak the croissant in. Hehe.

    ReplyDelete
  18. kenny: oooo, sounds so risky! wait the kopitiam owner catch us red-handed (or croissant-handed) and panggil polis to arrest us for attempting to bribe him or to bring illicit material into his premises! :D

    ReplyDelete
  19. Not illicit material. More of alternative munchables? Perhaps we can suggest to him/her that the kopitiam starts carrying fresh croissants too? :P

  20. Hi Sean, I was just browsing around and found that this other site

    http://food.bonology.com/2011/09/wheatfield.html

    just posted the exact same post. Do you run that blog as well?

    Anyways, thanks for the great reviews.

    ReplyDelete
  21. kenny: nibbling croissants would probably attract venomous glares from the kopitiam's other customers who'd be enjoying their roti bakar! :D

  22. seng-ming: thanks very much for the kind words. unfortunately, no, that website plagiarizes material from other food blogs...

  23. i was all hopes when i visited this afternoon.. unfortunately the scones were gone.. we tried the quiche lorraine.. i was a bit disappointed 'cos it's so thin (i prefer my quiche the traditional way: thick, creamy and crust crust crust!)

    the banana cake was good and we totally had the whole upstairs to ourself..

    oh, the cream puffs are nice too!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. whoisnell: thanks for the info! sounds like there were both hits and misses. but it's nice to know they've opened the upstairs dining area already too :D

  25. Love Wheatfield! I was there for 7 years, Damansara, Medan Setia 2 is like it has been cursed, most posh restaurants, even Bakery could not last for years. Silom, Sandias, Moxi's, Roti Boy, Friends Kopitiam...all gone. Did you notice?

    ReplyDelete
  26. River: ya, I really liked Sandias, since the food there was quite unique. And Moxie was also nice. I guess most of the restaurants on this row are very quiet during dinnertime. Not enough business for more than four or five restaurants to survive...

    ReplyDelete
  27. Sandias serves authentic Mexican cuisine. My office just next door. Do you know the fabulous Chef is now GM at Sky Bar?

  28. river: oh, i didn't know that. but i'm happy to hear he is still in the food & beverage business! :D
