Benjamin Coffee @ Hartamas & Bulb Coffee @ Damansara Jaya

September 22, 2013

Checking out two more caffeine-crazy newbies, these ones seeking success at the suburban shop-lots of Desa Sri Hartamas & Damansara Jaya.

First up, Benjamin Coffee & Tea, a friendly, no-frills cafe that uses 100 percent Arabica beans & German tea leaves for its beverages.

Benjamins latte is enjoyable enough, well-paired with a nice slice of red velvet cake.

Next: Bulb Coffee, also a welcoming place eager to ensure a pleasant experience for patrons. 

Bulbs desserts are homemade by the cheerful owners aunt; love this chilled Oreo cheesecake, a light, mousse-like delight thats ideal for a hot afternoon. RM8.

Affogato, well-priced for RM10 nett. Basic salads, sandwiches & pasta are available too.

Bonus coffee stop: Returning to Hartamas Podgy & The Banker.
Earlier entry on Podgy & The Banker: July 23.

Podgy now serves brunch fare, mercifully available through 5pm. Eggs are well-executed here; have em poached with spinach & garlic (RM10), fried or scrambled.

Chicken & avocado sandwich with tomato salad. Simple satisfaction for RM14 nett.

Podgys business hours have changed since July; it now opens 9am-midnight, except Tuesdays. What hasnt changed: The signature frowny face featured on hot chocolates & macchiatos here.
