Kaffa Espresso Bar @ Damansara Uptown

Jiang Jiang! Finally I have time to sit down and blog! Have been really busy recently as I'm having my clinical placement at a private specialist centre and I work from 8:30 to 5:30 everyday including Saturdays. Once I reach home, I have to do my research and homework given by my mentor. Not to mention the fact that I'm taking public transport to my workplace. Working life may wear me out sometimes but I'm glad that I'm learning a lot and the good thing is I'm also more motivated to be a better physiotherapist in the future. =)

Just a couple of weeks ago, I was craving for good coffee and sandwich so when my longest friend, Hui Ming called me up for lunch, I googled 'nice coffee and sandwich in PJ/KL area' and Kaffa Espresso Bar was one of the coffee shops that came out in the list.

Kaffa Espresso Bar is located at Damansara Uptown next to Yeoh's Bak Kut Teh.

Tadaa! So this is how Kaffa Espresso Bar looks like on the outside. There's James Dean, Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley welcoming you to the shop.

Signage to attract those who can't resist good coffee.


Once Hui Ming and I entered the coffee shop, we went all 'ooohhh's and 'ahhhh's because we really like the interior design. I certainly love coffee shops that look something like this. Innovative, classy, quiet and cosy all in one. 

Food and beverages menu.

I like all the wall paintings here.

Cute Mongolian kids craving for coffee?

Me on the right admiring the pretty cakes and pastries. I like to look at cakes and pastries but not eating them.

The single shot latte I ordered. Hui Ming and I actually talked to their shop owner and she told us that they are using light roasted coffee beans from Indonesia. If you are expecting to find heavy coffee aroma and flavour, this might not be your cup of 'coffee'. However, the latte was just nice for me as I'm not a person who is in favour of bitter dark roasted coffee.

Hui Ming's Cappuccino with cute smiley face. For those who like a lighter coffee and accentuated milk flavour.

Turkey ham, brie and apple triple decker sandwich we ordered!

Comes with fresh salad and mashed potatoes.

I like milky and buttery mashed potatoes so this version is a thumbs up from me.

Another shot of our sandwich. I like this sandwich a lot because it's light and healthy. The brown thing in the middle layer of the sandwich is actually preserved apple. You might wonder whether apple goes well with ham and cheese and I can tell you it does! 

Cappuccino mushroom! In case you are wondering, it's actually cream of mushroom soup topped with milk foam. 

The creamy mushroom soup underneath the think layer of foam! Highly recommended by both Hui Ming and I! This was also our favourite dish of the day. 

Will definitely come back to try their other sandwiches and breakfast set! A good place to hang out with friends too!

Thanks to Hui Ming for some of the pictures above.
