The Coffee Club (Australia) @ Subang Parade

The Coffee Club, reputedly Australia's biggest home-grown chain of cafes, unveiled its first Malaysian offshoot at Subang Parade this month, bolstering a cross-border network that encompasses more than 300 branches Down Under (including New Zealand), plus Thailand, New Caledonia & China.

Subang now has no lack of two-storey cafes, a trend that began earlier this year at Empire Subang; the sensibly spacious Coffee Club is striking in its own right, destined to draw crowds seeking another attractive hotspot to tout on social media.

Graffiti outside adds character to the setting. From inside The Coffee Club, this looks little like what folks expect of Subang.

The Coffee Club's menu hits the expected notes, with breakfast platters aplenty. The preparation might be a bit erratic though; these two poached eggs on toasted ciabatta with guacamole, beef bacon, roasted tomato, rocket leaves & pistachio crumbs (RM22.90 before taxes) were hamstrung by exceedingly overdone yolks ...

... but the egg turned out fine for the combination with pan-fried potato hash & sliced lamb chorizos (RM22.90).

Omelette stuffed with feta cheese & mushrooms (RM17.90). On the plus side, portions are reasonably hearty here.

Granola with yoghurt & honey, alongside skimmed milk (RM15.90), enjoyable enough. Besides these all-day breakfasts (which include Eggs Benedict & pancakes too), The Coffee Club also serves standard-sounding burgers, pastas & many main courses.

 Cakes showcased here look potentially worthwhile. Chocolate coffee, hazelnut praline, orange mousse & more.

The Coffee Club relies on beans that are UTZ-certified, promoting fair & sustainable coffee production. Its espresso (RM7.80) is definitely drinkable, as much as what folks would anticipate of a mass-market franchise.

Mellocino. Kinda fun, with two marshmallows floating in the froth & supplying sufficient sugar to sweeten this coffee. 

Iced chai latte & cookies-&-cream frappe, to help beat the heat; the abundance of natural sunlight can be a double-aged sword, since the air-conditioning needs to labour extraordinarily hard to cool the interior.

The service team tries to keep things moving, but it seems short-handed, notably on weekends. Patient patrons only, please.

  3. Wowwww!!!! They're moving here now, I see. Who says there's no prospect in Malaysia, eh? Everyone's coming over. Can get New Zealand's Kapiti's ice cream at Cold Storage as well too - so expensive but everyone who's tried is loving it!

  4. I was actually supposed to head there last Sunday, but was rushing for Mass instead. =) I have full faith in this coffeehouse, partly because I patronized Coffee Club twice in Western Australia. It's just a pity that I don't see their menus here. =/

    Wonder if it's tailored to our weather. =) Will definitely have to make a point to visit this place with my classmates/bestie. =D

    1. Waverly: yeah, hopefully once they're in full gear, they'll be all good. there's a page on the menu here dedicated to local fare, like roti canai and char kuey teow :D it was a bit warm inside, but i blame it on the heat outside. hope you enjoy this place :)

  11. Honestly, if I would to receive the overcooked poached eggs, I'd return them and ask for a new one. As overcooked poached eggs are strictly cannot be served in a cafe not to mention (Australia home grown cafe). I love poached eggs, and I make sure they are perfect! :p :)

  12. I been adventurous with new F&B, especially those newly open, in my back of my mind wanting to give them businesses. But this franchise -the coffee club, subang is real disappointment. Horrible service, and bad attitude waitresses. To me this really give a bad name to any new franchise program!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I'm happy to know that The Coffee Club has opened in Subang Jaya. Simply amazing. I can't wait to try it out when I head back to KL next year. At present, I'm in Melbourne, so yeah, definitely there will be a different in taste on the food and coffee which caters to the locals in KL. Malaysia boleh.....)
