Good tasting food, friendly staff and serve good coffee. Price is slightly higher than standard. Nestum coated toast is my favourite for breakfast and My Last Barn for my meal. 👍

The food is great and more affordable than other popular brunch spots. There were also less mainstream items on the menu such as corn fritters and their signature 'The Hemingway', in addition to brunch staples such as pancakes and eggs benedict. It's less crowded than Bangsar and Publika for instance, thus there was no wait to be seated. Their service... More

Went for dinner, not many people there. Not sure was economy not good or the price that scared ppl away. It was a little pricy but the food was good. Maybe due to not many customers, so the service was good as well. Normal western food but the taste was surprisingly good, I think it is due to the marinated... More

Been here a couple of times and what keeps amazing me is how friendly the staffs are! Thats one of the main reasons I keep coming back. They serve all day breakfast as well. Carbonara is not bad but they could improve on the crispy calamari! Oh and the wild mushroom soup is good too :)

A small quaint cafe with simple yet interesting decor. The breakfast is good and yummy. I ordered the "Metal breakfast" whilst my friends had "Faced Off Salmon" and "Incredible Waffle". All the sets are good. However, the set is quite huge and filling.

Came with anticipation of a good meal, having read some reviews. Recognized our server who used to work at The Red Beanbag. He told us the chef came from there too, so expectations were high. The spaghetti alio olio came unseasoned, had to add salt and then it was okay. The pesto chicken pesto was good and was perfectly seasoned.... More

I love the concept and the breakfast offerings here. Very creative with the French Toasts and Pancakes among the other things, Breakfast is good mainly also because I get to sit outdoors next to the water feature before the sun shine through at about 11am. Easily my pick of the eateries in Empire Damansara.

I ordered their special,Wagyu beef. It was soft and succulent. The portions were OK, and taste was not too bad. I also ordered their detox drive which was excellent.
