A calm hideout that's one of the Klang Valley's most intriguingly outfitted new cafes.
This is such stuff as a thousand Instagram photos are made on, potentially.
The furniture & artwork here are for sale; patrons can also request custom-made designs.
The menu strives to be distinctive, though the results might be less striking than the setting. Our best bet: sweet-&-sour octopus salad with mint leaves, kaffir lime leaves, basil leaves, lime juice, red cabbage, red wine vinaigrette & peanuts (RM15.90 before taxes).
Crunchy rice cake topped with egg mayo, rocket, parsley, cherry tomatoes & black pepper (RM7.50).
House special spaghetti with a paste of finely chopped turkey ham, mushrooms, jalapenos & olive oil, accompanied by fried, herb-tinged prawns (RM15.90).
Plenty of cakes for folks chilling out on languid weekend afternoons.
The coffee's best for customers who prefer the regular, commercially available brews.
Our sweet tooth couldn't resist ordering the Extreme Honeycomb Indulgence (RM12.90), with ice-blended honeycomb & coffee topped with whipped cream.
Service is pleasant; all in all, probably worth checking out for anyone who needs a new hangout.
P.S. Sean's away Nov. 7-17 in a mystery location 8,765 kilometers from KL where Maxis charges an unconscionable RM48 for 20MB of data roaming. Daily blog entries have been scheduled in advance & will be automatically posted, but apologies as comments can only be replied far later.
