Good Golly Miss Molly @ Millennium Square, Petaling Jaya & Cup Of Truth @ Campbell Arcade, Melbourne
April 17, 2014
Quick stop for caffeine at this cosy little new coffee shop in Petaling Jaya with a laid-back vibe & a fun name.
Sufficient space inside for working or chilling out, with a pleasant section outdoors too.
And of course, the coffee matters the most here.
The latte's enjoyably milky, the way we like it; ideal temperature for us too.
Rooibos tea is available as well ...
... plus a basic selection of cakes & the ever-brilliant Smooshie pure fruit juices.

G-005 Ground Floor, Millennium Square, Jalan 14/1, Petaling Jaya
Open noon-8pm (hmmm, forgot to check which days they close)
Bonus stop, Melbourne: In a city with hundreds of hyper-caffeinated hangouts, this one, called Cup of Truth might initially seem too frills-free to stand out. It's literally a hole in the wall nestled in an underground train station ...
... barren of tables and chairs for customers, cocooned amid the drab corridors of a sunless subway and enlivened only by a nearby busker with a penchant for 1970s-era David Bowie.
But there are robust reasons why Cup of Truth enjoys an enviable demand for no fewer than 400 servings of coffee per day. One of its founders, Courtney Patterson, is an award-winning barista who's been featured prominently in public transport commercials. Its house-blended beverages, which include the likes of seasonal roasts comprising El Salvadorian single-origin beans, boast heady aromas that herald sip-worthy experiences.
Plus, there's a certain charm to paying for one's coffee by simply slipping a five-dollar bill into a large countertop cup in front of the busy baristas and then scooping out an honest amount of change (which explains the outlet's name).
