Coffee Planet @ Petronas Tower 3

Spreading its wings to Southeast Asia, Dubai-based caffeine specialist Coffee Planet has launched a sixth-floor cafe with a view at Petronas Tower Three.

Coffee Planet begins orbiting the tower's Sky Lobby at 7am weekdays; breakfast platters cost RM12.50, but folks who order coffee enjoy a 50 percent discount. Scrambled eggs, sausage, baked beans, bread, butter & jam for only RM6.25.

Scones, laced with lots of pieces of cranberries. Only RM3.25 (with the coffee discount).

Warm, juicy wraps of piri-piri chicken & corn. Actually addictive.

Coffee Planet's menu is a mishmash of cross-continental sensibilities, which explains this briyani-like rice platter with tender beef & potatoes.

Try the cheesecake, more sumptuously creamy than expected, lightly sprinkled with pistachios.

Coffee's not half-bad, made with Arabica beans. Not KL's best, but OK.

Coffee art & other presentation points need more work, sure.

Iced lemon tea comes complimentary with main courses.

Coffee Planet opens weekdays through 7pm.
