There are quest a few coffee places in KLCC, you have your usual big chains such as Starbucks and San Francisco coffee, and then there’s of course the kopitiams and food court. Of all these choices, Gino Coffee is fast becoming one of my favorites.

Gino is actually located at two different premises within Isetan. At the lower ground by the grocery area’s counter where they mainly do take-away business, and another slightly bigger area tucked behind the cosmetic section on the ground floor with a small but comfortable seating area.

Like most things Japanese, Gino appears to take their craft quite a bit more seriously, and I’ve seen the owner (I think that’s who he is) a few times at the premise checking and making sure things are done the right way.

The quality of coffee is certainly good and prices are at the same level of their competitors.

I usually go for their milk based coffee such latte or cappuccino, but they do offer some of the more funky choices such as this black coffee with foam thingy (forgot the name, tastes strong and sweet).

If you’re looking for a quiet place to chill that happens to also serve good coffee at KLCC, Gino won’t be a bad choice.
