Kopenhagen Coffee @ Vista Kiara, Mont Kiara

Promising a slice of Scandinavia in Mont Kiara, Kopenhagen Coffee pays homage to the cafe culture of Denmark's capital city of spires: This sunny, shutterbug-friendly space is spearheaded by Danish software entrepreneur Peter Sehested, now living in KL & keen to kindle the hospitality of his hometown here.

Flat whites & long blacks showcase star charisma, beautifully balanced, exquisitely presented in Copenhagen-sourced insulated drinkware, paired for now with pastries & banana bread. An oven is on the way, heralding the heady sight & scent of house-baked rye loaves & open-face sandwiches to complement a kitchen that could soon be serving sous-vide specialities. 

Furnishing is still a work in progress (the cafe will likely remain in a soft-launch stage for several more weeks), but expect a reading corner, meeting room & other nifty nooks to populate this place, burnished with minimalist white aesthetics & windows that overlook the neighbourhood's greenery (everything here is the polar opposite of Nordic noir). Kopenhagen might be hidden on the first floor of a relatively small, low-profile building, but it looks certain to become a major coffee crowd magnet.

  2. Ooo.....I'm liking the Copenhagen-sourced drinkware...certainly different from the usual coffee mugs we have here. And I spot a slice of my favourite banana bread. I'm sure it'll be a sweet little place when it's all done up ^_*

  3. It looks like a lovely space. I hope they develop a more interesting menu though - croissants and banana cakes are not going to convince me to visit.

    1. Suituapui: the open sandwiches that they'll be serving eventually should be relatively distinctive! :)
