Greyskymorning & Food Industrie @ EX8 Subang Jaya

Subang's horizon for coffee fans expands even further this weekend, extending to a new cafe within the EX8 complex in the semi-industrial estate that's home to Tupperware, Skynet & the UCSI International School.

Greyskymorning is a two-level space with a photogenic look & easygoing feel, attracting mainly customers so far from the Ex8rcize Gym & City Harvest Church that currently occupy the EX8 building too.

Lots of natural sunlight to keep the mood light. We were hoping the cafe's name was a nod to one of our favourite tunes from the turn of the millennium, but the service team here - none of whom could have been older than eight in 2001 - explained that it was a reference to the type of skies they've been seeing in KL every morning.

Coffee, currently of a Colombian-Sumatran blend; works well enough for a perk-me-up, though the latte's very milky.

Smooshie makes everything better; as far as fruit juices go, the red combo of apple & dragonfruit is the best we've ever had.

But that's about it for what Greyskymorning serves for now; pastries may be offered next week, but information is sketchy here.

Must have food? Not a problem; Greyskymorning is a neighbour of EX8's in-house restaurant, Food Industrie (it's true, everything's spelled rather strangely in this building) ...

... where the Asian-accented selection comprises well-prepared recipes like these wok-fried salted egg glass noodles (RM8) & stir-fried buttermilk sauce chicken (RM8).

Here's the building to look out for when hunting for Greyskymorning and/or Food Industrie.

  9. Unfortunately, their food standard is dropping and seems like no one even bother to improve their food quality like last time.
