A must-try here is the Ham & Mashed Potato Sandwich (RM6.90) – a gloriously stacked sandwich comprising several slices of ham, well-seasoned mashed potatoes, and toasted bread slices that have been slathered in their signature sauce.

Protein-lovers can sink their teeth into the Ebi Katsu Sandwich (RM11.90). The cafe serves this sliced in half to reveal layers of juicy katsu crusted in crispy panko. Ribbons of crunchy cabbage, and a fried egg with runny yolk, packed between the toasted bread compliment the sauce and katsu well too.

If these handheld yeasty carbs aren’t hearty enough for your brunch, go for their rice dishes such as the Crispy Black Pepper Chicken Chop with Scrambled Egg (RM14.90) or Tomyam Fish Fillet Scrambled Egg Rice (RM13.90) – a simple but an equally delicious carb-loaded dish.

The floral aesthetic of the cafe extends to the drink menu as well. Find refreshments in pretty ombres and served in wine glasses, such as the Rose Lychee Tea (RM8.90) which is rimmed with coloured sugar and garnished with rose petals.

Another interesting concoction is the Orange Plum (RM6.90), an interesting medley of fizz, tang, and sweetness that is sure to freshen your senses.
