Seven Cups @ Empire Damansara, PJ

After my virgin visit to Seven Cups when it first opened last year (which I blogged: HERE), I'm back to this place again after hearing that it has introduced larger varieties of waffles, home-baked cakes and handcrafted ice creams in the house. 

Stepping into this corner shoplot, we are greeted by the clean, minimalist space with light pinewood accents. Despite of the cool, simple interior, the real sense of comfort that the cafe provides makes it an ideal venue for friends and family gathering or business meetups.

Deriving its name from the daily dose of coffee for 7 days a week, we know that the coffee business here is quite serious. As the name suggests, we have high expectations on its coffee and indeed the specially imported roasted beans from Singapore do not disappoint us at all.

Wote (Ethiopia), Karinga (Kenya) and Villa Rica (Columbia) Single Origin from Nylon Coffee Roasters 

Coffee here comes in two types: Black (Espresso based) or White (Milk), and the varieties differ according to the ratio of black and white composition in it. Whether you love your coffee pure black or with milk and foam, Seven Cups has gotten you covered.  

Aged Cold Brew @ RM12

A pleasant change from my usual hot-brewed long black, I find that aged cold brew is thicker and stronger in flavours as it is brewed for more than 16 hours and chilled. It is indeed a summer killer beverage to go for! 


Regular White (6oz) @ RM10

For those who love to have their coffee in a milder note, a true 6oz flat white is all you need to keep you going. Some may find it not as bitter and full-bodied as they prefer, because Seven Cups uses light to medium roast coffee. But if you're expecting incredibly clean coffee with pronounced fruitiness and citrus notes, here's the right place to go.


Taking the sweets as seriously as they take their coffee, the homemade bakes are equally noteworthy and solely available here on a rotation basis. If you're lucky, there ae more than 6 types of freshly-baked cakes on the counter including the bestselling buttercream cakes and sea salt caramel brownies.


The Salted Caramel Cookie @ RM12 looks so tempting!!

Earl Grey Lavender Butter @ RM10

This homemade cake is everything soft-minded; so smooth and light yet rich in buttery taste. Combining the delicate floral flavour of lavender cream with the refreshing taste of earl grey infused buttercream, this cake is truly an indulgent afternoon treat.

Perfectly fluffy and moist without being overly dense!


Salted Caramel Chocolate Banana @ RM12

I personally love my cake rich and dense, and the banana moist cake layered with chocolate sauce here is exactly what satisfies both my soul and body. The extra creamy salted caramel icing with a touch of caramelized almonds adds a nice finish to the already delicious cake.

But it is the waffle selection that has us on cloud nine. By far, the classic French Butter and Maple Syrup Waffle remains as my top favourite, because the moment of having buttery aroma lingering in the mouth with lightly sweet maple syrup is simply irresistible! 


Weekend's Special Waffle @ RM13.50

Seven Cups has been experimenting with new flavours of waffle. Luck is on our side, and we get to try the freshly-baked waffle topped with torched marshmallows on a Dark Chocolate Mousse and finished with a drizzle of dark chocolate sauce and a dusting of milo.

Crisp and hot out of the iron, the Belgium waffle here is lightly crisp and well-browned on the outside with a moist, light and airy interior. It is a nice change from the usual crispy-crunchy type I have. Oozing out like lava, the piping-hot chocolate sauce is surprisingly light in sweetness.

Alternatively, you can top your waffles with the town's most popular handcrafted ice cream from Inside Scoop. Seven Cups currently has a pop-up ice cream parlour here, serving 9 flavours ranging from the indulging Valrhona Chocolate to the nutty Pistachio. For first timers, do try the crowd's favourite Cempedak and Durian flavours, and you'll never regret.



Do hop to Seven Cups and get your sweet tooth fix!

Verdict:
1. Be it hot food or chilled cakes, Seven Cups has improved as compared to my first visit. 
2. I appreciate their effort and seriousness in their coffees, cakes and waffles. Recommended if you want to try something different from other cafes. 
3. Personal recommendations: Earl Grey Lavender Butter, Signature Waffles
