Being in a Muslim dominated country, it is rare to find a place for dog-lovers to go to with their fur babies (aside from Desa Park City) for a cuppa. Which is why Cubs & Cups at Desa Sri Hartamas is a place to go if you are an owner of some pups and would like to meet other dog owners. I had read a review about this new cafe and was instantly attracted to it. Being a dog-lover myself, I thought it would be a nice place to hang with friends who too adore the four legged fluffs. So that's where w
To no surprise that the place was rather busy around 1pm-2pm as it was time for people to get their fix of caffeine. There were also many pet owners there with their furry friends which are on leashes so no chaos would ensue. Thankfully many of them were friendly and if asked politely would allow people to pet their dogs. A witty caption that would greet you as soon as you enter the cafe. They also have a wooden picket fence and door to keep any fur babies from running out, so it would be greatly appreciated if everyone remembered to close it upon entering.
We waited about 10 minutes for a table as it was rather busy considering that it was a weekend. But the interior is incredibly cosy with minimalist decoration and warm lighting. A pleasant place to hang out, grab a drink and chat with friends.
Firstly the colour in itself told me that the Latte has more milk than I am used to. Perhaps some people prefer it that way however for me, being a coffee lover, I would prefer if I could taste to coffee. Which I did not get from Cubs & Cups.
Furthermore I tried my friend's Americano and was also disappointed at how diluted it tastes. Usually I'm cringing at how bitter the coffee is, to a point where it's borderline sour, because I'm not used to drinking it that way. But the Americano from Cubs & Cups did not get any sort of reaction.
As good as it tasted, I was definitely shocked by the price. This cost Rm26 and for a sandwich with some side of fries, it's definitely more expensive than I would have ever thought to pay. Though considering the many ingredients, I guess that's the standard price?
Rather disappointed by the coffee and food, but it is a nice place to go to on the weekend especially if you like dogs.
Other Info. : Only go if you have a love for dogs and do not fear them. Otherwise, this cafe is a very cosy place to be just to hang out with friends.(The above review is the personal opinion of a user which does not represent OpenRice's point of view.)
