GOOD by Pencil Planning @ Jaya One

GOOD lives up to its name: This coffee bar & concept store by Korean interior designer Sine J.H. Kim & his terrific team is a unique space that showcases admirable attention to detail - it's easily our new favourite destination for caffeine in Jaya One.

This soothingly serene cafe banks on Cottle Coffee for single origins from across the globe - Costa Rica to Colombia, Ethiopia to Indonesia, Brazil & Mexico to Kenya, Honduras & Peru - to create Dutch coffees, hand-drips (including one tinged with maple syrup for a touch of sweetness) & espresso-based varieties (mostly RM12-RM14 each). GOOD's friendly baristas are completely capable of making reliable recommendations & explaining each offering; make your choice at the counter & take a plush toy (Pikachu, Spider-Man or SpongeBob?) to your table for order identification. Attractive cakes are also available.

The black beverages hit the spot - smooth & sensuous, complex & concentrated. Head here now to feed your IG stories, or wait till next month, when GOOD introduces espresso cones - coffee served in miniature chocolate-lined ice cream cones.

A chunk of GOOD is dedicated to a gallery of shoes, soap, earrings & other curated merchandise, much of which may be exclusive to GOOD as far as Malaysia is concerned. Browse at your leisure, or buy & bring home immediately. Bonus trivia: Pencil Planning refers to Kim's consultancy company.

  1. I'd assume there'd be enough different plush toys for all the tables. Psst...they're so cute that, over time, some might go missing...haha! :D

    1. Contact.ewew: good point! i think there are between 15 to 20 plush toys, so it should be OK ... heheh, hopefully none will go missing, since the staff will collect each toy after they complete serving each table's order :D
