Grind 22 @ Bangsar

Promising 'coffee & everything nice,' Bangsar's latest cafe opens this week, tucked beside Lorong Maarof's Twenty2 boutique, shepherded by an all-smiles, all-star team that includes Grind 22's own designer-architect Effendy, Raqib & their collaborators.

 Grind 22 is a charming hidden spot with a shrewdly breezy set-up that keeps the temperature cool throughout - even when we visited on a sultry evening - while preserving the ambiance of an alfresco hangout. The bounty of natural light ensures that throngs of camera-devoted cafe disciples will make photo-intensive pilgrimages to Grind 22 across the next several weeks.

 A kitchen might launch later, but for now, Grind 22 serves sweet treats that range from Purple Monkey's frozen mini-cheesecakes (with flavours like Toblerone Dark Chocolate, Blueberry, Peaches & Mango) to CuppyCatCake's Malteser-topped 'Fancy Pants' cheesecakes, Victoria Sandwich strawberry sponge cakes & peanut butter chocolate cakes.

If you're reading this today (Tues, Feb. 3), head to Grind 22 now for coffee - the cafe is selling cappuccinos, flat whites, lattes & everything caffeinated for RM5 each as part of its opening promotion. Offer expires at the close of business hours today.

 Or savour Grind 22's signature smoothies - even with no rain, the Blind Melon will help customers beat the heat with its refreshing blend of watermelon, pineapples, lychee, chia seeds, mint leaves & other all-natural secret ingredients - no artificial flavouring or sweeteners. All in all, this cheerfully welcoming place, run by passionate people, deserves a visit.
