Le Pont Boulangerie @ Old Kland Road, KL

I have long heard about the uniqueness of Le Pont's French bread, pastry and fusion cafe cuisine, yet this is the first time I make my way to this 3-storey bakery-cum-cafe. This huge outlet may suggest to you that plenty of dining space is available. Unfortunately it is not the case when I visit it on a late Saturday afternoon. The ground floor is a grab-and-go bakery shop with limited seats for dining; whereas the first floor is fully occupied.

We wait for a good 10 minutes but nobody actually entertains us. Luck is on our side when we finally manage to secure a table for four, next to the coffee bar counter. But there is an issue sitting near to the area where the non-apologetic staff washes whatever-they-need and we can feel sprinkles of water onto us.


Long Black @ RM7.50

With our mood slightly spoilt even before we start dining, I honestly don't expect the coffee to be good.
But it is surprisingly decent and worth the price we pay for.

Cappucino @ RM9.50

Smoked Salmon Sandwich @ RM18.90

The Signature Sandwich combo (Smoked Salmon, Tuna Egg, Beef and Vegetarian) is sold out at that hour, so we go for Smoked Salmon Sandwich instead. Served along with a can of truffle fries (Highly addictive!) and garden salad, the presentation is nice. Simple and satisfying for a light starter before we dig into our main courses.

Anchovy Linguine @ RM19.90

As for the pasta we order, the anchovy sauce is something new to us. It hits nicely at just the right level of saltiness, and is well-seasoned with seaweed, chopped parsley and anchovy grissini.

Spaghetti in Parmesan Sauce and Egg Confit @ RM19.90

Unfortunately, the next dish is a slight turn-off. The creamy cheesy sauce is already quite heavy for me, not to mention when it is mixed together with the semi-cooked egg. Truly a comfort food that easily fills our stomach. Honestly, the pasta is only recommended for true cheese lovers, otherwise you may opt for sharing instead.

Squid Risotto @ RM24.90
Another cheesy dish to die for!

Le Pont Waffles @ RM11.90

Dessert wise, I notice plenty of tarts and cakes on display but it is the hot signature waffles on the menu which catch my attention. Served with 4 different types of dips (Vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, gooey chocolate sauce and mixed berries marmalade), it creates new and exciting combination of tastes with the crisp-edged waffles. Highly recommended!

Croissant Ice Cream @ RM10.90

I finally get to try the signature croissant with 3 scoops of ice cream (Vanilla, Strawberry, Chocolate), topped with crunchy pistachios and whipped cream. The croissant is served cold, but remains crunchy and does not turn soggy even when the ice cream melts. Recommended too!

Le Pont has plenty of decadent cakes in the chiller too :)
Do check them out if you are seeking to satisfy your sweet tooth!

Verdict:
1. Overall, the food is good but the service level requires tremendous improvement. 
2. Ambiance wise, it can be very noisy during peak hours. But nevertheless, Le Pont has amazing interior, staircase and bar seating that are picture worthy.
3. Recommended: Le Pont Waffles, Croissant Ice Cream

    1. Hello Selina, I think the selection of food is more like fusion style, not towards the healthy direction. But anyway since it is near your place, it's worth checking out! :)
