I have wanted to go to Owls Cafe ever since I saw it in some blogs. I wanted to go with my friend who stays in Bukit Jalil but we were not inclined to go because many bloggers say that patrons have to wait for almost 45 mins to 1 hour to get a table. I figured this usually happens only on weekends and since I am on leave today, I decided to give it a shot with my friend. I was taken aback to see such a big crowd there on weekday which is a Wednesday. It was a little difficult to look for the pla
The ambience is so cosy and great for hanging out with friends and family. A lot of youth are there. Even families have gatherings here. There is a small cosy corner with sofa and pillows right at the end, corner, hidden away. There are pictures and figurines of owls everywhere on the shelves, wall, floor etc. On the floor, there are also big owl soft toys. This place is famous for cakes, waffles and lattes.
I ordered the famous Rose Latte (RM 10) which is so fragrant. The shape of the heart on the foam is perfect. I love the finishing of rose petals on top, just like how Winter Warmers does it. The latte blend is amazing.
The Rebecca Waffle (RM 18) is fantastic. The flower shape of waffle is so unique and creative. I liked the fresh blueberries and sliced strawberries on top together with very little maple syrup, that is not too much that it would drench the entire thing. The waffle's crispiness is maintained and that is a plus point for me because I hate non-crispy waffles. The best part is the scoop of my all-time favourite Earl Grey ice-cream on top which was so blissful. It reminds me of the real Earl Grey.
The States Bagel (RM 18), according to my friend, is the best he has ever tried. He said the bagel, even being eaten alone, was so tasty and even tastier compared to the bagels in Morning After. For me, I liked the soft and jelly-like bull's eye egg on top of the bagel. To me, the bagel here is too hard and chewy. I also liked the fresh European salad with just the right amount of sauce and an overload of mayonaise like how some other places usually do. The sausage salad with corn kernels and also capsicum were wonderful. The freshness of very vegetable could be felt. Later I saw people ordering the beef Waffle which looks so tasty and beautiful. I think that would be mine for the next round.
The washrooms are very clean and the waitresses have good service.
I was so surprised that the entire meal came up to only RM 48 which is much less than the one charged by coffee cafes in TTDI and PJ combined. In fact, I expected the bill to come up to about RM 100.
