Mollydooker's

KL's caffeine craze rages unabated; checking in on Damansara Heights, a charming coffee bar has replaced Just Heavenly Pleasures near Chef & Brew.

Homemade dark & milk chocolate chip cookies, boasting a soft-baked richness that partners perfectly with steaming-hot beverages. Mollydooker's only offers a small selection of sweet & savory snacks, so it's not a place for full meals.

Apple strudel & chocolate roll. What's with the outlet's name? The two (left-handed) guys who run Mollydooker's get asked that a lot. The explanation is simple: the word is an Australian expression for lefties & southpaws.

Caffe mocha. Mollydooker's uses Sumatran Mandheling beans supplied by R.A.W. Coffee. It takes its brews seriously, supplying all the potent, aromatic flavors that can be expected.

Latte. The outlet opens at 9 a.m. & closes early at 8 p.m., but that makes sense, since public demand for caffeine dissipates at night. Mollydooker's operates only on weekdays.

Iced or hot chocolate is available if you want to steer clear of caffeine.

  4. Qwazymonkey: yikes, yeah, looks like the guys at mollydooker's are living your dream already. but hey, since there are so many coffee addicts around, bkt damansara might be able to sustain at least two or three good caffeine joints. Just sayin' =)

  11. CK: heheh, since you finish work at 5.30pm, you can reach this place at 6.30! but ya, actually their opening hours are inconvenient for me also :D
    Lemongrass: i'd have suggested friday afternoons, but i think the barista might need an hour off for prayers! =)
