Swich Cafe @ Atria Shopping Gallery

Swich's newest outpost is a slice of sweet soulfulness in a shopping mall, with a beautiful interior that includes a wall lined with European paintings, a counter full of charming cherubs & cuddly, rainbow-coloured teddies, & at the back of the cafe, a life-sized replica of a tree with a trunk & branch assembled out of planks, furnishing a poetically cool backdrop for a magical meal.

Cakes & more cakes remain the raison d'etre of Swich, but founder CC always has something novel surfacing from her imagination & her ovens - this time, it's ice cream cakes, born of a mother's love. CC thought of these because her two sons like ice cream cakes, but she wanted to create versions that taste better - crafted with more carefully chosen ingredients - than supermarket standbys. Plated to order on evocative tableware, these will especially delight lovers of local fruits, with Swich's own-made ice cream of Musang King durian or Johor-origin cempedak on a dense chiffon base. Compellingly luscious, blessed with a potent fragrance & mellow flavour, lovely in both texture & taste. RM16 for durian, RM15 for cempedak.

Loosen your belts & lose the diet - Swich's new banoffee cake with whipped Valrhona chocolate cream & Gula Melaka (RM12.90) is an indulgence that's too insanely delicious to share. We're also instant fans of the Uji green tea & Callebout white chocolate cheesecake - punchy without being cloying - & the rose lemon cake, a ravishing treat with sumptuous subtleties - French Pamplie butter cake infused with kitchen-prepared natural rose syrup, layered with lemon curd frosting & coconut cream, topped with dessicated coconut & crushed rose petals. Many thanks to CC for having us here - we loved everything!

  2. That replica tree is a bit similar to the one in Yellow Brick Road...nice! Are their ice cream cakes available at their other outlets as well?

    1. Contact.ewew: i think to be safe, if you're heading specifically for ice cream cakes, then go only to the Atria branch, cos the others might not have it for now :)

  7. Had the musang king pie recently and learned the hard way that it's probably not meant to be stored overnight... Other than that, this one is pretty close to me, so can't complain.

    Also figured out that they don't charge service charge if you have the cakes to go, so...

  10. Had the vanilla apple cheesecake which was really good. However, when I ordered a whole cake for a birthday party, was disappointed cos it wasn't as good. There was too much apple in it and to make matters worse, there was a lot of hard apple skin in it.

  11. WARNING....turns out the apple cheesecake wasn't fresh at all as all my guests had tummy upset and the only common food of consumption was the cake! So SC Lim, I doubt your problem was improper storage. Seriosly, poisoning your customers is not the way to conduct business! Looks like I'm NEVER going to Switch again and I will be warning all my friends.
