After my many failed visit to upstairs cafe, I'm finally here with my college mates!! (After cracking our head and squeezing our brain juice during our Bio paper 23) =) We walked here from our college, under the sweltering heat, cause we were bored of food at SS15, and we had no other mean of transport LOL. #cantdrive
Upstairs Cafe, as its name suggested, is actually located upstairs, on the first floor of the row of shoplots facing Ramsay Sime Darby Medical Centre (SDMC)
Upon entering, we were greeted by the friendly staffs. The environment at upstairs cafe was very homey and welcoming. Upstairs Cafe was buzzing with activities- The sound of the coffee machine coupled with the chitter-chatter of the patrons, with jazz music playing in the background. We couldn't find a table that could fit all nine of us so we were forced to sit at the balcony area, which was actually a smoking zone.
Upstairs Cafe practices the self service culture where customer would place their order and pay at the counter.
Upstairs Cafe drinks menu! As you can see, their price is much lower than the conventional coffee shops such as Starbucks, Coffee Bean and so. Where else can you get a frap for RM9? =D
Their Breakfast Menu! I was elated finally being able to try their breakfast food. All these while I had only been here for their cakes, coffee and pasta. =D
Their menu are all written on the chalk board as there's a different menu for dinner.
Upstairs Cafe's Forte- CAKES
Believe it or not I actually tried ALL the cakes from Upstairs. And I'd say all of them are pretty darn good.
Especially their red velvet, hummingbird cake and chocolate brownies! So moist, fluffy and heavenly!
Our orders took quite a while to arrive as it was full house.
Big Breakfast RM15.90
Two sunny side up on a slice of toasted French Baguette, Two Chicken Sausages, Ham, Sauteed Mushroom, Roasted Cherry Tomatoes and Baked Beans. Comes with a glass of orange juice.
My friend's order. She wanted to order the Egg & Turkey but they ran out of poached egg. I presume due to the high demand off Egg Atlantic.
The sunny side up was very well done. The yolk was still runny, the flip side of the egg was crispy, like how a perfect sunny side-up should be. It was slightly seasoned with pepper and herb to further enhance its taste. The chicken sausage was really flavourful. The cherry tomatoes were roasted to perfection, bursting with sweetness as I take a bite. The only item I couldn't care less about is the hash brown. The hash brown is your typical MCD hash brown, except this version is slightly thicker with a crustier skin. My friend and I don't really like it as all we could taste is oil, oil, oil.
