Grandeur Gallery & Dotz Cafe @ Kota Kemuning

Checking out two cozy corners at Kota Kemuning, starting with Grandeur Gallery Cafe.

This first-floor hideaway works well for a casual retreat from the city, cocooned in a leafy suburb.

Striking Asian artwork lines Grandeur Gallery's walls; some are for sale.

Served 8am-6pm, Grandeur's brunch dishes ignite a gooey explosion of yolk-drenched majesty.

Pork power: bacon-wrapped egg. One lament though: Grandeur isn't open during dinnertime.

Kahlua-infused tiramisu, the sole offering here with a trace of liquor.

Coffee & hot herbal tea, perfect to sip in this cafe's soothing setting.

Less than a one-minute walk from Grandeur: Dotz Cafe, another painting-immersed outlet.

Pork's a pleasure at Dotz Cafe too, thanks to a house salad that brims with bacon.

Rum-laced tiramisu cake, satisfactory enough to give Alexis a run for its money.

Lattes, one cold & the other hot, one mint-flavored & the other tinged with banana.

Prices at both Grandeur & Dotz are fair; everything above totaled below RM100.

    1. Missyblurkit: yeah, i didn't expect dotz cafe to be a pork-loving eatery, especially since it seems to be more of a coffee hangout, but both dotz and grandeur gallery were worth the travel to kota kemuning, i think =)
