Since it was raining and we can no longer go to Janda Baik, we decided to go to VCR coffee since it is quite famous in KL area. We took quite a while to look for the place and finally parked at Swiss Garden Hotel KL for RM 5 which is quite reasonable in KL area. The place is painted in black on the outside. The place was crowded with people but surprisingly, it was very peaceful and not as noisy as other high-end popular coffee places. There were a lot of people coming here to do their work on t
The place is painted in black on the outside. The place was crowded with people but surprisingly, it was very peaceful and not as noisy as other high-end popular coffee places. There were a lot of people coming here to do their work on their labtops. Some of the customers are anti-social and every youngster using their handphones to snap photos and then busy uploading them and not talking to each other much.
There were award winning photographs taken by Alan James which shows issues like Typhoon Haiyan, flood in Thailand and also shark fishing. The ambience is great and perfect for doinng some work there. The music is light and not too noisy. There is a balcony lawn area for smokers too. The staircase is the main item that shows its rusticness. In front of the toilets downstairs, there was a wooden old-fashioned divider.
I ordered the Cappucino (RM 10) which did not come with the peacock design but just normal heart design on the foam. The barista said that they will do any design that they wish for me. The cappucino is just nice and thick and the coffee flavour is strong enough.
The Iced Mocha was amazing, and according to my companion, beats the ones at other cafes due to the strong coffee taste and not too much chocolate taste. One can definitely feel the coffee inside.
We also ordered the King Cake (RM 12) which is the main highlight. It is actually Banana Peanut Butter cake with very little icing or even cream. The thin layer of peanut butter is not too creamy and the thin slices of banana in the middle was fantastic.
There is free refill of water upstairs with cute sign like "Sharing water is caring."
Now I know why many bloggers and reviewers actually give good reviews for the ambience and coffee here. And I am definitely coming back if I happen to be around Pudu area.
