“Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking”. Tucked in the middle of Damansara Utama district, Departure Lounge is set to be one of the best places that serve hearty breakfast meals, few bites of them and enough to start your day. However, once you get to step into the place, their prize winner coffee is what will get you hold.
With consistently smooth lattes steamed at a comforting temperature, Departure Lounge has been shortlisted in a few awards that include Time Out Food Awards 2013 for Best for Coffee category. Sounds promising enough! The place sets forward a travel-planning concept, cordoning ‘travel library’ as its main focus. Literally, the said travel library has wide range books from travelling guides and magazine that folks always see in the backseat compartment in aeroplanes to language translator covering almost half of the shelf. Rather a fitting idea for those who wants to explore countries at a comfort of a cafe.
The usual big breakfast and a cup of delectable coffee or juice would accompany greatly. Highlighting the sets, breakfast platter costs at a decent price considering a plate packed with scrambled eggs, button mushrooms, toasts, sausages & hams, and hash browns are nicely done with jams on the side at an ample amount. Greens are thrown it with their classic Ceasar’s Salad is enough to sides with the already-generous meal.
Pancakes are also served here despite the fact that their big breakfast is the biggest hit; probably patrons in a turn would once in a while chow down on one, taking a different course than the usual. Also, a decent selection of pastas as well as comfort Western delights like grilled chicken thigh and beef stew are up for grabs, if you're tired of bread-oriented dishes.
