The Lolla Co., The AmpWalk

By Aiman Azri

A little cafe that could, The Lolla Co. makes lovely use of its modest space to carve out its own special sanctuary in the city, offering a soul-reviving escape from the office cubicles.

The menu might not be a far-reaching lollapalooza of temptations, but it's a succinct selection that seems to revere quality over quantity. Of the multi-seed sourdough sandwiches, Mariah Berry is a harmonious ensemble of roasted chicken with Cajun-inspired spices that truly belongs together with house-made organic cranberry jam and herbed mayo, thoroughly textured and tasty, rounded out with roasted veggies, sufficient for a balanced lunch (RM16). For a creamy sweet treat, the Kranky Karrot is a sterling ambassador for carrot cakes, satisfyingly studded with walnuts and cranberries (RM12).

Come in, the coffee's fine; order a flat white with almond milk for a smooth, creamy concoction with a little extra nuttiness (RM10).

  1. I do agree that life is too short for bad I hope they serve good coffee here...hehe! ;) The latte art looks great though :)

    1. Contact.ewew: i think the coffee here is as good as it gets on jalan ampang, heheh :D

  2. Interesting piece of artwork on the wall. Somehow, the first thing that came to mind was Alice In Wonderland. Kranky Karrot looks good.

    1. Suituapui: i think you're right that alice might be an inspiration (directly or indirectly) for that artwork! :)
