[October 2021]

Filtered Coffee- V60: Ethiopia (RM16)
Comment: Slightly sour with strong aromatic coffee, smooth and easy to drink

Filtered Coffee- Aeropress: Peru (RM16)
Comment: Floral and nutty flavor

Smoked Duck Aglio Olio (RM22)
Comment: Spaghetti is slightly overcooked. Smoked duck is tasty and tender, pretty good. I would prefer if the garlic flavor is stronger.

[October 2020 & March 2021]

White, Single Origin (RM10)
Comment: Love their coffee as usual, strong and aromatic with slight bitter aftertaste

White, House Blend (RM10)
Comment: Very strong, aromatic and smooth with slight bitter aftertaste

Filtered Coffee- Aeropress (RM16)
Comment: We chose the beans with Chocolatey, orange and nutty taste with slight bitter aftertaste. Taste so good, I strongly recommend this for coffee lovers

Signature Lemonade Espresso (RM16)
Comment: Definitely not their signature to me. Taste so wrong with very mild espresso taste but more of lemonade taste, definitely not a drink for coffee lovers.

Big Breakfast(RM28)- Sunny side up, grilled tomato, sauteed mushroom, chicken sausage, streaky bacon, homemade toast, green salad
Comment: Portion wasn't huge but sufficient for a pax. Taste like the normal big breakfast

Salmon & Avocado (RM33)- Salmon slice, homemade avocado sauce, toast, zucchini mint, scrambled eggs/sunny side up
Comment: Didn't quite like the salmon, preferred fresh avocado over avocado sauce.

Pork Patty Burger (RM24)- Homemade grilled pork patty, charcoal bun, tomato slice, red onion slice, cucumber slice, fries, bbq sauce
Comment: The patty was quite small but it was quite juicy and taste was alright.

Grilled Chicken Chop (RM24)- Creamy lemon sauce, chicken chop, mashed potato, salad
Comment: Taste good with the creamy lemon sauce but it would be better if the portion was slightly bigger.

Earl Grey Burnt Cheesecake and Matcha Burnt Cheesecake (RM16/each)
Comment: Both taste really normal for me, didn't quite like the texture as well

Matcha Mango Chiffon Cake
Comment: The chiffon cake was dry, no matcha taste, at least the mango was sweet.

     I have been here a few times for their coffee and the quality of the coffee is well-maintained. In my opinion, there is room for improvement in terms of food wise, especially their desserts. However, I strongly recommend this cafe to any coffee lovers looking for a strong coffee. It can be really packed during lunch hours, so head there early to grab a seat.
