Lids & Finch @ Damansara Heights

The kind of easygoing cafe that every office-monopolized enclave requires, where frazzled workers can retreat, eat well & recharge.

Between 8am & 11am, breakfast is served, the likes of French toast with bananas & butterscotch or poached & scrambled eggs with bread.

Through 3pm, customers can have heartier meals, like egg-watercress sandwiches in multi-grain bread or pesto fettuccine with spinach, peas & parmesan cheese.

 All day long, house-baked desserts remain available. Real orange juice is used to make this lovely cake layered with orange curd & cream cheese (RM12+).

Coffee cake with butter cream (RM12+), fresh & flavorsome.

Red Velvet Cake. Moist & dense, the kind of texture that's worth the calories.

Much, much more on the counter, from cupcakes to carrot cakes ...

... pine au chocolat to blueberry muffins ...

... to cookies, croissants, brownies, fruit puffs & more.

Save space for a decadent affogato with Forty Licks' salted caramel ice cream.

No ordinary Coke float; instead of plain ol' vanilla ice cream, this one contains Forty Licks' beautiful roasted white chocolate with lavender ice cream.

The catch: Lids & Finch currently opens weekdays only through 6pm. But it's fun to flutter here for breakfast, lunch or tea to beat the workweek blues.

And for what it's worth, Lids & Finch sure is a beautiful-looking cafe. Nice work on that.

Note: Lids & Finch closes earlier, at 4pm, throughout Ramadan.

    3. Ulric: ya, i love white chocolate in the first place, and the lavender is subtle but a nice touch to it. and i think this was the first ice-cream float i've ordered in many, many years (i'm not a fan of floats) =)

  7. Where is Menara I & P 2?? LOL. Ok, i can figure out Jalan Dungun.. but it's the building that I might have trouble locating :P
    But there's always WAZE so should be alright! parking here is always tricky though.

    1. Rebecca: oooh, you'll have no problem finding it, it's quite prominent. it's kinda opposite nero fico, the italian restaurant. i ended up parking at a neighboring building where there's lotsa basement space, heheh =)

  8. Noooo, the cakes and muffins are taunting me when I'm not supposed to be indulging in too much carbohydrates now.

    Fatbaby reminds me too much of root beer. =D

    1. Waverly: heheh, maybe after your carb-avoidance term has ended, you can head to Lids & Finch for some sugary rewards! :D heheh, i kinda used to like A&W's root beer floats back when i was a teenager, but i've lost the desire for it since =)

  14. Usually when the decor is super attractive, chances can be quite high that their food would be underwhelming. By the looks of these photos, they sure look good.
