Cakes!

I have been to this place several times for cakes and drinks. (I don't know anything about their hot meals, etc.) In short, their selection of 40 cakes is absolutely amazing and exquisite. If you like cakes or pies, you need to visit here! The cakes are fresh, with a good variety of "classics... read more

This place has everything :coffee, cake, bar, good quality restaurant and live music in a long, sectioned building. More expensive than most places but great quality.

Coffee and cake was as good as anything you could expect. Effort put into the choice of coffee shows, and there are so... More

Had early dinner on a Sunday night. Food is pretty expensive and cake was rather dry. Since we are early, the ambiance was suitable for catching up with friends. The wait staff is dress casually, it is hard to distinguish who are guests and who are the waiters when wanting to ask for service.

I dont think that there are many places which sell cheap drinks compared to other southeast asian countries because of the tax here in Malaysia. However, I think that other than that the atmosphere is nice plus there are bars, dining areas and a cafe all under one roof. They serve different kinds of food at different times and places...

There are many variety of cakes / desserts offered in this shop, you will be spoilt for choices ... I would recommend the Tiramisu, it is the best I have tasted, I like the candied nuts that was placed on top of the Tiramisu cake. & it is a little bit alcoholic, so just take note. The ambiance is great... More
