    Cottle CoffeePork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21Alco free 9fb1f2c65edc2c1eaf4e8b24402d108dd33cc2bc71f0fb0022a54c3c390a66c8

    As the name suggests, one would've already guessed that Cottle Coffee is a place for a rich and aromatic cup of coffee. This cafe, which uses beans imported directly from their own roasters in Australia (yes, their parent companies roast beans) provides a rich and aromatic blend from various continents. There are also single origins available for those who knows what they would like to have. One recommendation would definitely be the Magic- which is made with two shots of Ristrestto, giving it a slightly more rich and acidic taste. 

    Tips

    Free wifi and water. Coffee home-brew products available for sale as well.

    Things to expect

    A casual, white and comfortable place to dine.

    Best with

    Sandwiches, pies or cakes.

    Apart from their rustic-looking ambiance and Kinfolk-worthy photo area, Awesome Canteen also serves pretty good coffee.

    Strangers at 47Pork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21Alco free 9fb1f2c65edc2c1eaf4e8b24402d108dd33cc2bc71f0fb0022a54c3c390a66c8

    Strangers at 47 is the hip, hipster joint popular for their crepes menu. But like most hipster cafés, the must try would have to be their coffee. Instead of the usual espresso or latte, why not go for the Barista special for drinks like the Matcha Latte or the Affogato. The Matcha Latte is served with sprinkles of green tea on top of the nicely thick foam, which can be a bit strong if one is not used to the taste, but beneath that is this milky pleasure with hints of green tea. Another pleasure comes in the form of Cinnamon Hot Chocolate. Perfect for fans of this spice, the amount of cinnamon is quite generous. The beverage itself is heavier on the chocolate and less on the milk. With the great service, any day is coffee day at Strangers At 47.

    Tips

    For extra green tea flavour, stir everything together.

    Things to expect

    Great service that would be the reason for your next visit.

    Best with

    Any of their sweet or savoury crepes.

    Fat SpoonPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    With the name of the café, you’ll just wish that they serve food as literal as its title. Fat Spoon Café specializes in Halal Nyonya inspired food that’s operated by two sisters. It’s located at Damansara Uptown (the same row as Wondermilk). Unlike other new cafés that are popping up everywhere, Fat Spoon Café will remind you of Malacca as its entrance and exterior decoration is purposely designed to look old. With rusty walls and old windows, it will definitely remind you of the old buildings in Malacca. Their coffee varieties are normal, though their iced lattes and coffees with a choice of ice cream or without will make you very indecisive.
    Tips

    Horrendous parking, closed on Mondays

    Launched in 2008, Hometown Hainan Kopitiam is a restaurant that’s created out of reminiscence. They call themselves the Koh family and their grandfather travelled down from Hainan to Malaya back in 1899 to work at the kopitiam. Everything was made by hand and with modern technology and appliances these days, the family has decided to produce the same quality of good Hainanese food and beverages from scratch through innovation. Way cheaper than regular coffee, Hainanese coffee is somewhat similar to the kopitiam coffee that’s available outside but more fragrant!
    Tips

    Main meals are pretty filling, sharing is a great idea!

    Decent coffee, Hainanese décor.

    Using a Columbian blend, the cappuccino has a smooth and well-rounded taste to it. Wanting to serve coffees that can be enjoyed by everyone is what this café is trying to achieve. The owner mentioned about how some cafés offer very strong citrus essence coffees that not everyone can relish. Consequently, they decided to buy coffee blends that produces hazelnut and chocolatey savour. So, every sip of their coffee will give you a very nice texture and taste and not some overpowering caffeine drink that can make your head hurts.
