Cultura Bakery Cafe @ Lorong Kurau, Bangsar

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.

  6. The test is in the eating. Many places here with great-looking croissants but...I'd much sooner give them a miss.
