Oat milk wasn鈥檛 prominent when it was hot, but the flavour was more noticeable after it cooled down.

You might know Coley Cocktail Bar for its nightly bustle, but Transparent Coffee now takes over the space in the day. Run by some of the peeps behind One Half and Artisan Roast, this coffee bar aims to highlight fair trade between farmers and roasters. We like both the Filter Coffee (from RM15) and the White (from RM10) 鈥 the latter comes with an oat milk option that offers rich, nutty flavours with a sweet aftertaste. If you're feeling peckish, there's tangy, tasty Sourdough Toast (from RM12) for a bite.

Taking its name from the Japanese term for 鈥榗reamy texture鈥, Namelaka Patisserie crafts sweet treats that are gorgeous and delicious. The desserts are made to look like fruits on the outside, while still packing real fruit pieces within. Try the Pear (RM21) for something light and fragrant 鈥 the thin and crispy outer shell encases delicate cream and fresh pear cubes.

If you love your sourdough extra tangy, then you鈥檒l love the one available at Transparent Coffee. You鈥檒l get a generous serving of four thick slices with French butter, and another accompaniment like sea salt, marmite and nutella.

Or perhaps I just am a sucker for any apple pie at all 馃き鈦

馃摲 In frame: 鈦
Berry Pavlova and Apple Pie.鈦

鉁 I would definitely re-visit for the cake selection. Alexis definitely lives up to its reputation of having the best pavlova in town. 鈦

馃挰 I can鈥檛 say much of their meal offerings because I didn鈥檛 try any.鈦

馃摲 In frame:
Polenta Shrooms topped with hazelnuts, pomegranate seeds, and sourdough crumble.

鉁 The creamy polenta paired with the earthy mushrooms is genius! The mushrooms were seasoned perfectly-- not too salty nor cooked in too much grease, while the polenta carried just the right amount of richness. Combined with the supporting elements of the dish: the pomegranate seeds, sourdough crumble and hazelnuts, this comforting dish made me one happy girl.

馃挰 I would argue this isn鈥檛 very filling, though. It鈥檚 not so much a meal on its own but a great accompanying dish you can order to share.

It鈥檚 in the name: BIG breakfast. VCR鈥檚 main breakfast offering is a plate piled high with sausages, ham, eggs, tomato, salad, mushrooms and a lamb-tomato sauce. My only gripe is that the salad seems to take up most of the plate, rather than being an accompaniment.

The interior was decorated so dreamily. I felt as if I was walking into a scene out of a children鈥檚 storybook. 鈦

馃摲 In frame: Vanilla Bean, Caramel, and Earl Grey Gelato 鈦

The moment I tasted Joy St.鈥檚 gelato, I was swiftly reminded of the difference between gelato and ice cream. Gelato is typically denser, more flavourful, and smoother (albeit being lower in calories!) than ice cream due to the lower amounts of air incorporated. 鈦

鉁 I was a big fan of the silky, cool gelato offsetting the warm, fluffy waffle. Of the three flavours I sampled, my favourite has to be the earl grey flavour. The caramel flavour was just okay to me; it reminded me of cereal milk. 鈦

馃挰 However, I felt that the Vanilla was far too sweet. While I was midway through the gelato, it got a bit cloying. I wanted some water badly to wash the sugar down but unlike at Inside Scoop, you have to pay RM2 for water here. Will make a point to revisit and try out more flavours still! 鈦

Namelaka patisserie sells cakes that look like fruits which have real fruits inside and more! The flavours was quite subtle but the textures were great with the crispy outer shell and the creamy layer with the crunchy fruits at the core. We were also told they don鈥檛 add sugar and get the sweetness from the white chocolate cream and the fruit inside. Namelaka means creamy texture in Japanese and they truly live up to their name indeed with their nice and light cream in their desserts

Namelaka patisserie sells cakes that look like fruits which have real fruits inside and more! This is one of their best sellers (RM21). The textures were good and the pear flavour was so fragrant! I really liked this. Namelaka means creamy texture in Japanese and they certainly lived up to their name with their light white chocolate cream.

Namelaka patisserie sells cakes that look like fruits which have real fruits inside and more! This is one of their best sellers (RM21). The lemon鈥檚 flavours are really strong so it was suggested that we have this after a sweet dessert. This was rather sour but so refreshing. It has mint in it too! I really liked this. Namelaka means creamy texture in Japanese and they certainly lived up to their name.
