Crumbs @ Bangsar

Folks passing through Lucky Garden this month might have noticed a mysteriously mustachioed, pink-&-white banner hanging over one outlet. Turns out it was the harbinger of Bangsar's latest baby: a family-owned cafe run with heart & enthusiasm.

Savory choices here include massive sandwiches to feed small armies. But if you're early, aim for a fresh mini-quiche; reassuringly warm, luscious & flavorful.

Crumbs' cakes should also satisfy. The pumpkin-carrot cake is moist & fragrant, but the tangy baby lime is even better, with a rich topping reminiscent of cream cheese.

Try the tarts too: salted caramel & pecan, light enough to take away & nibble at the office for tea. Crumbs currently opens 10am-8pm, Wednesday through Monday.

A compact selection of cupcakes, treasuring quality over quantity. Check out Crumbs' Green Tea creation, cloaked in a lovely matcha aroma that feels far from artificial.

The outlet's logo, a mug with a mustache, refers to its beverages, named after mustache styles such as Handlebar, Chevron, Dali & Walrus. The most indulgent one is the Paintbrush, comprising milk, caramel & vanilla ice cream.
