Marmalade Cafe @ Bangsar Village II, Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur



Since I had to wait for someone in Bangsar yesterday, I decided to check out the new shopping centre there i.e Bangsar Village II which just opened their doors last week. Although most of the shops have yet to open, the ones which have started business look really good and perfect for any retail therapy I need.

Rather than rant and rave about shopping which I'm sure all of you will roll your eyes upwards, I decided to check out the food scene there. Most of the places are repeats of whatever you get in the original Bangsar Village i.e. Bakerzin, delicious by Ms. Read (yet to open) and Starbucks. Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf has closed their outlet near Hong Leong Bank Berhad and moved in here instead.

There was one surprise addition - Marmalade Cafe upstairs. They just opened for business on Monday and it was pretty packed with people. I liked the decor of the sunny cafe: with bright colours and glass windows that look down to Devi's Corner. It's also nice and spacey which I prefer versus to the Mont Kiara outlet that was slightly too claustrophobic for me. For those who prefer the Mont Kiara place, don't worry as this is a branch. Menuwise, the old favourites are all there including the Carrot Cake I had but with additional items on their breakfast menu. They also have a cute boutique they own next door called Kitsch.

fbb - didn't see that, must have been at the top bit as I was rushing through the shops - hope it's a gadget place as that will be my permanent hangout place. Hee hee, lots of things for us trendy gals. Very tempting esp since I need to buy CNY clothes.
