Malaysian Food Blog, Travel, Diving & More

When I first went to Melbourne a few months ago, I noticed that the local coffee scene is very different than Malaysia, and very vibrant.

Every other corner is a cafe, mostly locally owned and operated with some international chains like Max Brenners. Restaurants and breakfast places like too usually serves excellent coffee (MART 130 is an absolute must visit). It is a land where Starbucks aren’t doing well at all with their, as some agrees, watered down coffee.

Note: this place has moved

Le Passione Cafe at Plaza Damas
breakfast set (blergh), flat white (awesome)

After getting spoiled with good coffee from down under, Mellissa then decided that we should hunt for the best coffee in KL, and her housemate Jun Wei happened to know just the place we need to go. Le Passione Cafe at Hartamas Shopping Center.

Other than 2 cups of flat whites (they are similar to latte, but served in ceramic cups), we also ordered a breakfast set and a baked potato during that particular late afternoon snacking session.

The coffees were excellent, smooth, creamy, and very flavorful. They’re worth every sen of the RM 7.95 Le Passione Cafe charges (with 10% service). A piece of biscotti and a shot of cold water accompany the coffee too.

The food however, were rather disappointing. The eggs were nice, but turkey ham and those canned mushroom were pretty miserable, baked potato wasn’t anything to shout about either.

For really good coffee around town, go to Le Passione Cafe, but eat at your own risk.

  20. aeroplane1234

    look at the ham…. like 5 years old alraedy…. urh…

  21. This is the 1st time i read, you actually giving bad review abt food and give a warning abt your bad experiance, you usually sounds way too polite on most of your review.i think you should do this more so ppl who read you blog have a clue wether this restaurant is worth the visit. unless is you were invited by the owner or get paid to write. BTW i went to FRONTERA it suck big time. i didnt blame you though, i still love you blog, keep up the good work

  22. foodcrazee,
    Hehehe yah.

    Ooo interesting. πŸ˜€

    hahahaha yah.

    Thanks, and to be honest, I don’t get paid to write food review. For those that I don’t find good enough, usually I simply refuse to write. As for Frontera, I really liked their stuff, and that might have something to do with the fact that I’ve spent more than 4 years in the States getting accustomed to Mexican food. πŸ™‚

  23. oiks..i jus receive an email from my colleague and its promoting best food in PJ
    seems like your posting is circulating around~

  24. i need a coffee now. so sleepy.

  25. taufulou,
    ooo I know about that email! πŸ˜€

    I am drinking. Hehee

    This is so true you know. About Melbourne having loads of cafes at every corner. But probably because like Melbourne is really cold during the winter and people need coffee/hot chocolate to keep warm. Malaysia is damn bloody hot on its own already hahaha no need hot chocolate

  27. May Zhee,
    Oh well but the cafes in Melbourne operates during summer too πŸ˜›

  28. U better be right about this, ive been craving and searching for the REAL COFFEE since i landed my foot in kl. So please dont dissapoint me! =P

  29. it’s me again! im an bit skeptical about the froth though, it looks overbeaten in da pic. Normally good coffee froth is important (well to me it is anyway), the froth should be really smooth and not bubbly even though it has been left cold. STILL me gonna try soon cuz me love coffeeeee! πŸ™‚

  30. Jess,
    Don’t talk so much just give it a try first then only tell us πŸ˜›

    If you really love coffee, you must try coffee ritual. Their cappuccino is great as well as their single origin coffee, the freshest in town. Read their blog at very informative, only two post todate.

  32. Lim Tiong Hean,
    Thanks for the tips!

  33. Hi, was just reading through your archive when I land on this. Yes, I totally agree that the coffee here is exceptionally good! It’s one of my favourite coffee joints.

  34. […] milk. The milk was good and I too was very happy with the latte that rivals what was served atΒ Cafe Le Passione (Hartamas Shopping Centre.) Haze also bought some cookies & mush mellows back home, and they […]
