The Owls Cafe: Brunch and coffee surrounded by owls
16.02.2016 by LadyAlly
I’ve sorta been eyeing this cute little cafe for a while now ever since I saw it on my FB newsfeed, but because it was quite a distance for me to get there, I’ve been postponing this little visit. Since SGbff was back in town for CNY and I managed to get theMister to keep an eye on the kids, we went for a little girly date since it was Valentine’s day anyway. (=ↀωↀ=)✧
Anyway, we went for brunch so we reached at around 10.30am and thankfully there were still a few tables available. (By the time we left at 1pm, there was a long waiting list already!) I went there blind so wasn’t really sure what kind of food to expect. So, got the menu and realised that this cafe’s main dish is WAFFLES. I am not someone who know how to enjoy savoury waffles (Fine, call me unadventurous but I don’t care. So there,) so I thought of getting a coffee, a croissant and later maybe have a nice waffle dessert. So I ordered a Morning Daisy, which is croissant with fluffy scrambled eggs, and some salad and chips at the side. SGbff got herself a Sally Salmon, which is a waffle with fluffy scrambled eggs and cherry tomatoes topped with smoked salmon. And a coffee of course. (I wonder if there is anyone who can actually function without a morning cuppa).
Our flat white (Flat White: RM9) came first, which was pretty good; not too acidic, overly roasted or too light. I was just sad it wasn’t served in a cute owl cup, or at least have an owl coffee art. ( ◞᷄દ◟᷅ )
But nothing surprised me more than the serving of my meal. This light brunch was really big! And what value-for-money! For only RM16 (Morning Daisy: RM16), I was so stuffed I couldn’t even finish it. Looks like I need another trip there to grab a waffle. Can’t wait! o(^∀^*)o
I did try the waffle though since I mooched some off SGbff to taste how savoury waffles are like. It was pretty awesome. The batter was light, fluffy and a just a tad sweet; somehow it blended with the smoked salmon and eggs pretty well. I only wished the waffles was a little more crunchy, but that’s just me. Have to say this is one of the best waffles I’ve had so far and I am pretty picky about waffles since I can make them myself…. when I’m not too lazy to do so. The serving was also quite decent, and for RM24 (Sally Salmon: RM24), the slices of smoked salmon was quite generous.
Now let’s talk about the owls. Since it was an “owl” cafe, there are all sorts of owl around whether it is drawings, murals, porcelain decorations, statues and soft toys. I wish I had a chance to take better photos but since the crowd started building up, I couldn’t take many decent photos without blocking someone, or people thinking I’m some sort of creepy stalker taking their photos. Nevertheless, I enjoyed my time there, and I felt a little bad for hanging around for a good 3 hours even after my meal. But the place was cozy and despite it being a little snug, the noise levels were not deafening.
Looks like this calls for another trip to The Owls Cafe, and gotta bring the whole Quah clan to enjoy it as well.
