Cafe Artisan Roast Coffee @ TTDI, Kuala Lumpur

As it is the holiday season, I woke up pretty late and then I was wondering where to go and have some late afternoon snacks. Most of the places that was on my must visit list were closed for this Chinese New Year season and that is when I started browsing for alternative places. That is when I discovered this place in Taman Tun Dr Ismail. Called the number on the website and confirmed that they were open. Their location is pretty familiar to me, right next to Maybank in TTDI which is at the same row of shops as Tom, Dick and Harry.

Cafe Artisan Roast Coffee @ TTDI, Kuala Lumpur
It was just a single lot being divided into two areas, the outdoor smoking area and the indoor non smoking area. Due to the partitioning, the inside are was a little cramped but they have carefully planned the space.

An Assortment of Cakes

The Counter and Work Space
The moment I was inside, I was surprised. It was packed and buzzing with people. Well, this place is surely very famous. Unlike most other cafes that are pretty quiet, this was the complete opposite. Most of their patrons at this time were from the student category with the exception of a few and the air was very vibrant. I just loved this environment. Loads of chatter and laughter in the air. I went through their cakes and coffee and I must admit, they have quite a variety of coffee being offered. They have also invested quite a sum in having the latest in coffee brewing. Placing my orders was a breeze. They were very friendly and operated speedily. Having placed my orders and paying for them, I then got a place in a beautiful hideout in front of the counter.

Lovely Decor

Very Unique Seating
As you can see from the above photographs, the seating is very unique unlike other cafes. I choose my place in one of the most private spots in the cafe as I wanted to spend some time reading. The lighting was good too, air conditioning at the right temperature with soft music playing in the background.

Latte @ RM 10.00
My coffee then arrived shortly. This was a perfect cup of Latte. Definitely done very well and sweetened lightly. I would rate this 9/10 . If you want a good cup of Latte, this is the place to get that fix.

Chocolate Cake @ RM 10.00
This was another excellent item here. The slice was surely huge and at RM 10.00 definitely worth it. Rating for this shall be 9/10 . As I had not had my lunch, decided to try another one of their offerings.

Zesty Lemon Slice @ RM 5.00
This again is another good offering here and indeed it was very zesty!!! I would rate this 8/10 .

I spent almost two hours here this evening and it was surely a relaxing one. This place has got a charm of its own and if you happen to be at this locality, do not miss this place. Worth dropping by for a good coffee and cake.
