Miss Ellie Tea House @ Taman Melawati

Its calm facade might make Miss Ellie Tea House look like a charming Cameron Highlands cafe, but mercifully, this hidden gem is only a half-hour from KL's center, nestled on a suburban street where parking's aplenty in Taman Melawati.

Family-run & fabulously friendly, Miss Ellie Tea House is a spot we'd recommend unreservedly for weekend brunches & brief getaways from the city.

Can't call it an English tea without scones: pastry chef extraordinaire Justin Wong offers not only the regular plain ones, but also rich chocolate varieties.

Creme brulee might seem like a cliche, but here's one of KL's best, made with real vanilla pods instead of essence, for luxurious flavor & fragrance.

Gooey goodness: Waistline-wrecking salted caramel choc fudge cupcakes.

Passion fruit tart, beautifully balanced somewhere between sweetness &, well, tartness.

Strawberry & white chocolate tart, delivering creamy-crispy mouthfuls of bliss.

Other freshly baked treats here include flour-free orange poppy-seed cakes, red velvets, cranberry crumble cookies, cinnamon-dusted financiers & blueberry muffins.

The likes of Darjeeling Early Grey, Assam Blend & Irish Breakfast populate the tea selection.

Medium-roast pure Arabica coffee, crafted in KL, ground to order & served in a French press.

Hot meals are available, simple but satisfying-sounding fare like bangers & mash, beef casserole & chicken parmigiana.

Miss Ellie Tea House opens 10am-7pm, Tuesdays through Saturdays.
