Today, I had the urge for a cuppa and waffles. Thus, I headed out to botanic klang to search for a café and I chanced upon Bean Thief Expresso Bar.
Walking in the cozy café, the first thing that drew my attention was the cake on displayed. Being a ‘sweet tooth’ person, this would be the perfect place for me to indulge in a ‘guilty sugar trip’. It was definitely my lucky day as the owner of the café was in. Upon inquiring with the owner, she used to be a barista and realizing the potential of the Klang market, she decided to open a café here.
The menu selection is limited for the moment as they’re in the midst of upgrading the kitchen. In Bean Thief Expresso Bar, they only provide waffles and home-baked cakes. As for the coffee, it’s their own in-house special blend done by the owner. This cafe is perfect as I’m on the lookout for a light brunch. For drinks, I ordered the Hot Americano, Iced Hazelnut Mocha and Hibiscus & Lime Juice. The blend of the Hot Americano was not too bitter, therefore I can drink it without sugar and milk.
It was tough to select the cakes, however they’ve recommended the Black Forest Rum and Hazelnut Macaroon Torte. Black Forest Rum cake was delicious as the liquor taste wasn’t overwhelming. Furthermore, not much café serves liquor cake. As for the Hazelnut Macaroon Torte, this taste amazing with white chocolate as topping.
I also ordered 2 waffles with different toppings.
The waffles are served with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream, however I find it a tad too crispy. If you would like to put extra toppings, it’ll cost RM2.00/per topping and RM2.50 for additional scoop of ice-cream.
By the way, the café doesn’t charge service tax or GST, which makes the price of the items reasonable and attractive. Well worth a visit, hopefully next round when I drop by they’ve more items added onto their menu.
