The Shire Cafe @ Sri Petaling

Not all who wander in Sri Petaling are lost: The Shire Cafe proves as calm & cosy a retreat as its Middle-earth namesake. Spearheaded by a family of Lord Of The Rings enthusiasts - Tan & his two children - this new neighbourhood hideout is filled with fantasy flourishes that include walls touched up with a Tolkienesque map & a Hobbit's home interior mural where customers can pose for Instagram shots while Howard Shore's sweeping soundtrack from the movies plays on the speakers.

This LOTR-themed cafe counts a dozen waffles as its most precious offerings; the one to rule them all is the Fallen Tower (RM18), with bread sticks cooked in a waffle iron, wrapped around chicken sausages & cheese, served with scrambled eggs & vegetables - all the ingredients for a second breakfast, paired with a Mazagran (RM9), a mix of espresso over ice with lemon.

  1. My girl would be into this, LOTR, Hobbit and all. I wonder if they need to pay to use the theme like one place here, right now the theme is Hello Kitty, and it was Frozen around Christmas and Disney before that.

    1. Suituapui: yeah, I think this place would appeal to a lot of curious customers ;) hmmm, i guess as long as the names are strictly copyrighted, it's fine to use the theme informally :)

  3. The place looks too small for comfort...the (short) seats are very close to one another and really looks like they're meant for hobbits....haha! :D

    1. Contact.ewew: ooo haha the seating was quite ok for me (though then again, I'm not particularly tall). It's a fair bit more spacious than most cafes actually! :D

  9. Just went today! The food was ok, good value for money but, speaking as a Tolkien fan, the theme was a little hit and miss. It was little more than lip service, with obvious errors in decor and terrible spelling errors on the menu.
