Coffee Smith is the new talk of the town located at Maritime Piazza along Karpal Singh Drive/ Jelutong Promenade. Coffee Smith is a franchise restaurant from Taiwan, serving their famous Artisan coffee and western-italian food. The industrial themed interior design is definitely on of the star factors. I love the concrete finishings and the “tong” converted arm chairs. My fellow Instagrammers out there, here is a place with much photo ops! Be it the vintage telephones, the 3D painted clock tower or the assorted old school light bulbs. The press ad styled menu is a nice finishing touch. Two thumbs up for the food plating as well
Coffee Smith’s MUST TRY would be the Artisan coffee (picture below). I confess that I have this habit of ordering coffee black and then shyly going back to request for a cup of milk. Just because they can never get the RIGHT combination! With Artisan coffee, I now have the luxury of my own version of the perfect coffee. The first small yellow cup is the espresso, the larger cup in the middle would be the center of attention black coffee. Finally you get a mini jug of milk. Be it a latte, cappuccino or an espresso, mix and taste away!

The Safe Room is the recent hit in town. Joining the sprouting of many whimsical cafes with a touch of our heritage, it is located at Campbell Street ( 2 doors away from Sugar Honey and Moustache Houze). Among all these cafes fighting for regular patronage from us food-lovers, we have seen many of their attempts at introducing a specialty of some sort in hopes to satisfy the omnomnomnivorous in us. While liquid nitrogen ice cream has been in the scene for some time in other places, The Safe Room (TSR) is the first cafe to introduce this ingenious use of science in food. Like many other liquid nitrogen ice cream stores which we have seen in KL, TSR adopted a open kitchen concept in its attempt to engage customers in their ice-cream making process. You will be able to see the wondrous cooling property of liquid nitrogen and see the simple combination of fresh fruits and cream other ingredients transform right in front of you!
If you are about to buka puasa and craving for dessert at the same time, fret not! TSR also offers some food which are commonly found across all the cafes, namely pasta, mushroom soup, eggs benedict etc.. Unfortunately we went after lunch and thus weren’t able to make some quality stomach space for the food.
Another place to enjoy a good cup of freshly brewed coffee is Coffee Elements. Located on the first floor of All Season Place, Air Itam. With the newly opened mall, locals living in Air Itam, Farlim and Paya Terubong have more option for catching up sessions, meals and light grocery shopping all in one place. Their interior walls are filled with unique mural paintings and interesting graffiti designs surrounding the place.The vibrant colours of the tables and chairs made the place more lively and cozy.
You can also enjoy the delicious foodies at Coffee Elements in Gurney Paragon but it is less spacious compared to the one in All Season Place. Remember to place the orders at the counter before the food is served to the table
