Twas a fruitful weekend! As many of you know, we usually spend our weekends eating, blogging and venturing around places. This week we did something extra- we helped my brother with some wedding banquet research. *excited* yay!!! We went to GHotel, Gurney Hotel for the bridal shows and stop by a few hotels to scour the best prices.
Before the long day, though, we needed to fill up our hungry tummies.
Most of the shops in Paragon don’t serve breakfast, so we came upon Pacific Coffee Company. We have to admit, we never knew they serve breakfast- so chancing upon their breakfast sets definitely serves as a pleasant surprise! To add on, the portions are also reasonable and filling too!
Baker’s Croissant + Tea (RM9.90)
The croissant is served hot and crispy. It even tastes good plain!
Tuna Croissant (RM10.90)
They are very generous with the amount of tuna served together with the hot croissant. The tuna spread tastes smooth, not too cloying and goes along very well with the salad and croissant.
Turkey Ham & Cheddar Croissant (RM12.90)
It is served with salad with vinegar and olive oil dressing.
Chicken Pie + Coffee (RM12.90)
The chicken pie is a must try. The crunchy crust along with the smooth filling melted in my mouth. The crust is not too thick and most importantly the dish is served piping hot. The filling is not too spicy and it has chicken bits along with potatoes.
To upgrade to cappuccino, you just have to top up RM2. The coffee’s aroma is not as strong as Coffee Bean’s and its taste weaker/more toned down. I personally prefer stronger coffee but really, it boils down to one’s personal preference.
The environment is very relaxing and spacious, with a nice sea view by Gurney Drive. A nice spot for hang out while sipping your coffee. During the night time, you can see the musical fountain dancing away in front of you and sometimes there are jazz / live bands at the open space in front of Paragon.
