Bangsar's latest bakery-cafe is a soothing space tucked on Lorong Kurau, blessedly removed from the bustle of Telawi.
This place might look more recognisable than expected: Cultura replaced Poco Homemade this month. It's now helmed by a very friendly two-person team that welcomes customers with temptations that range from almond strudels to chocolate palmiers.
Escape the noise outside & linger inside Cultura over freshly baked slices of creamy-soft cheesecakes (RM13) topped with macadamia nuts & salted caramel ...
... & piping-hot toasties (RM7) prepared to order, thickly spread with rich, top-flight peanut butter.
Plenty of pastries are available for takeaway on Cultura's shelves.
White chocolate rose mousse cakes (RM13), a holdover from Poco Homemade, still offered for now at Cultura. Blueberry cheese tarts, strawberry bavarian cream cakes, matcha mousse cakes & black sesame mousse cakes can also be sometimes found at the counter.
Degayo Sumatran coffee & Twinings tea will likely keep caffeine-lovers happy.
