I must admit that I have been going to countless number of cafes, but so far my personal favourite is still The Owls Cafe despite of the booming number of new eateries opening everyday. In fact, I have visited plenty of so-called waffle specialists and most of them are just mediocre. If you are an avid cafe hopper, surely you've tried The Owl's signature waffle.
Interestingly, the waffles here come in quirky names such as Rebecca, David, The Queen, Milo Dinosaur and The Classic. It also comes in savoury type with duck meat or salmon on herb-based waffles. However, I would still go for the sweet version each time I come to this cafe.
Here you can have ultra-thick Belgian waffles in flower shape. The batter is extra light, hence producing very airy and fluffy waffle that does not feel overly heavy on the palate. Rebecca (The name of the waffle!) is filled with fresh strawberries and blueberries, then topped with homemade Earl Grey ice cream which is well-blended with the Almond flakes and Maple Syrup.
I am totally blown by the extra creamy ice cream as it exudes surprisingly rich aroma of earl grey tea.
Tea lovers would certainly love it!
Vanilla Mille Crepe @ RM12
If you are looking for a more affordable sweet treat, the variety of cakes on the chiller is also worth a try. Our decadent slice of mille crepe is melting good with rich vanilla scent but it is a tad sweet for my liking.
Another highly recommended cake is the ToFuFah Cheesecake from Project Cake Therapy which I have tried at POKC, Damansara Uptown, and it is really good! A great option even for those who don't usually love strong cheese flavour.
"How Coffee Works" chart is displayed at the cafe, but I have not tried any coffee here since I am currently taking a break from the caffeine dose. If you have sampled any, please let me know if they are good :D
Every corner of the cafe is beautifully adorned with colorful little owl decors that fill the space with loads of fun and joy. Although the overall space seems quite packed, it remains very cosy and comfortable especially during weekdays where the crowd is less overwhelming.
I love sitting at the corner facing the window with my laptop on, and admire the beauty of these little ones. Overall, it is a quiet and comfortable day well spent at this cafe while I work on my own stuff.
1. Pricewise, I think the sweet waffles are quite decent, considering the quality of ingredients used. But I don't personally like the savoury waffle because of the price factor (cheapest is RM24 each!).
2. I will revisit for its breakfast croissant menu, which I find it quite interesting and worth checking out.
3. All in all, The Owls is worth visiting for its brunch and dessert menu!
