While the sheen of this venue’s accomplished aesthetics will turn Coffee In Common into a magnet for shutterbugs, the food & beverages rise on their own merit, propelled by polished industry talents. Noted chef Nik Michael Imran has crafted a menu that confidently caters to multiple preferences, with the smoked duck soba (RM17), nasi lemak with sambal sotong (RM13) & mushroom pesto lasagna (RM15) hitting pleasurable notes for flavour & freshness, well-executed enough to belong in the repertoire of respectable Japanese, Malaysian & Italian eateries. And with the League Of Captains cafe’s friendly barista-founder Danial Naim currently in charge of the coffee here, you know you’ll receive a commanding flat white (RM11) that’ll fuel you for a few more hours at the laptop – all work & no piccolo lattes make us deranged boys & girls.

More review about Liberal Latte

Even conservative coffee drinkers & Earl Grey-guzzling tea party members might want to give Liberal Latte a shot; this new caffeine bar’s founder Helmi & his friends from local beverage services purveyor Mozaic Gourmet are determined to deliver a distinctive cuppa to customers – a Perle Noire blend by Parisian roasters Cafes Richard is currently in the hopper, making for a really satisfying latte (RM8), well-balanced in its milky-roasty dimensions, with a bag by Kyoto’s % Arabica waiting in the wings

In a glance, the cafe isn’t exactly big but seats comfortably 10 to 12 people at the long communal table. If you’re escaping the cold in your office or from your boss, the seats by the window will be sure to keep you warm in the afternoon and lots of natural lights. When ahead with the usual drill and ordered latte over the counter. Unlike the other cafes where the menu is displayed above or on soggy sugar papers, the menu is framed up nicely at the counter (no more looking like giraffes pointing cluelessly on the overhead menu!). Prices are keen at a scan and on display, the cakes are rather tempting.

Table 9 Cafe & Kitchen, Bangsar


Read more reviews about Table 9 Cafe & Kitchen

If you are looking for a new place to eat in Bangsar, head to Table9 at Jalan Telawi 3. This promising cafe and restaurant is owned by three friends (two of them are Koreans) who are hands-on to ensure the consistency of the food. The simple three page menu consists of various Italian classic dishes, some infused with a touch of Asian cuisine. Korean coffee and desserts are available too.

One of the crowd favourites Table 9. We like it too. Creamy but appetizing, thanks to its spiciness and pleasing sourness that open up the palate. It is OK to indulge all by one person, not cloying. Take your switch from the ever-popular black squid ink risotto, you might like this risotto in bright orange-red. ‘Coz why not when it is superb.

Table9 offers over 10 types of pasta, from olive oil to cream to tomato based. We opted for a cream-based Alfredo pasta (RM24), served in a bread bowl (add on RM4.50). Apparently bread bowl pasta is quite a big thing in Korea. Other than pasta, they also do pizzas, salads and small bites.

Overall I thought it was a very good brunch session at Table 9, with most of the dishes belong to the category of “I’d definitely won’t regret ordering”. We now know where to go for a good meal with a sweet bingsu ending.

Table 9 also has the full barista selection of teas and coffees, sparkling fruit Ades, smoothies and freshly pressed juices. All are delightfully presented on hand-crocheted doily coasters in naturally dyed colours (another nod to Eve’s craftswoman background and her mum). I went for a ‘Blood Cleansing’ pressed juice (RM 14). Monica re-energised with a ‘Mint Chocolate Latte’ (RM 11). Caning opted for a strong, dark roasted ‘Cappuccino’ (RM9) on account of his pending tennis match on the way home after which, by all accounts from him, he won.

More reviews about Café Atas 59

Aside from the usual coffee options, Café Atas59 also offers a range of imported craft beers. At the time of writing craft beers such as Hawkers Pale Ale and Two Birds Golden Ale were available, but the guys behind the café plan to change the selection regularly. Food-wise, there are decent choices for pastries and cakes; go for the baked cheese cake or key lime tart if you’re in the mood for dessert. Apart from that, the menu also includes all-day breakfasts, sandwiches and dessert pancakes.

Cafe Atas59 recently replaced Bangsar’s Lorem Ipsum but retains the friendly, chilled-out vibe that makes it one of our favourite choices for weekday business meetings in this neighbourhood. The coffee is still satisfying, bolstered by beverage options like an ice-shaken mocha (RM15) & ‘New-Fashion’ (RM14; espresso with tonic), plus independently baked cakes like the matcha chocolate. For fans of Lorem Ipsum’s art-jamming facilities, take heart: The brushes & paint have gone nowhere.

The cafe is located on the first floor, next to Pinch Restaurant and above Dr. Chai’s Dental Clinic. You are unlikely to miss it as you will see an art piece at the entrance, before you head on up the steps/stairs. Once you are up the stairs and into the cafe, you head to the counter and place your order. The cafe is spacious. Half of the cafe has the usual cafe seating and the other half is the art space – paints, art easels and etc.

Craft Origin, TTDI


More reviews about Craft Origin

There are two types of coffee served here: pour-over and espresso-based, with the blend for the former changing every week, and the blend for the latter every month. The espresso-based coffee blend is well balanced: bold without being too hardhitting, with a little acidity to make it an allround pleaser.

Other than coffee and tea, Craft Origin also serves food and cakes (I did not try any of them), therefore, if you are available during your free time and no where to go, maybe you can give it a try. For coffee connoisseurs, this would be the place for you to have your cup of coffee as the baristas are skilled and experienced. Another great coffee shop alternative around TTDI.
