THE SCENE On weekend mornings, KL-ites head to this sweet café in Bangsar’s shopping center for its extensive breakfast selection comprising favorites like pancakes, wholesome muesli and the full English fry-up (eggs, bacon, sausage, toast, mushrooms, baked beans and tomato). With its polished cement floor, colorful wall murals, picture windows framing a view of the greenery outside and beadboard wainscoting, the café eludes the cookie-cutter feel of many mall eateries. If you want to avoid the morning crowds, come in the afternoon, grab a few magazines from the selection arranged around a center table’s tall vase of gerbera daisies and kick back with a long flat white and a slice of old-fashioned carrot cake.
BEST BETS You can’t lose with breakfast. After 12 p.m., the kitchen churns out a delectable selection of salads, quiches, pastas and gourmet sandwiches (including chicken char siu with pear, chili and ginger jam). Order the basil-flecked avocado-and-egg salad that fills an inspired Lebanese wrap, and wash it down with one of the café’s freshly made juices.
