The Coffeeholic & La Roasteria @ Seremban

Sniffing out the scent of coffee in Seremban, a change of scene that's only an hour's drive from KL.

The Coffeeholic's a relatively recent entry, a spacious spot on a street of shop-houses, supremely calm on a weekday afternoon.


The Coffeeholic serves a very satisfying toast, packed with both peanut butter & Nutella. RM6 nett (!!!).

Charcoal bamboo mille crepe, a likeable choice for dessert-seekers. RM9.50.

Drip house blend, RM10, combining Colombian, Sumatran, Brazilian & Guatemalan.

The Coffeeholic (RM9). Espresso with condensed milk & cocoa. Interesting creation.

Barely a 10-minute drive from The Coffeeholic, there's La Roasteria ...

... a cafe that shares a site with a fitness centre for a double-shot of caffeine & endorphins.

Egg & mayo in ciabatta. Turns out exactly how customers might expect this to.

French Toast, hefty with sugar & starch; perhaps not a compelling reason to head to Seremban, but fine if you're already here.

Scones & cakes, all available. Perhaps the only real surprise: the service teams at both these outlets were strangely aloof.

La Roasteria's coffee lacks the finesse that some customers might demand ...

... while its affogato could probably benefit from better ice cream.

  2. Looks like a very cheery and colourful place, Sean! I would skip the toast...however, the coffee is something I would definitely want to try, right along with an egg salad sandwich. :)
