How many of you are a frequent diners at Northen Beach Cafe? If you do, I am pretty sure you guys know this little stall called La France tug in the middle of the coffee shop, that serve nice French Food. Well, over the time they have gain their reputation and now they have grown by moving to a new premises since last year to this heritage front corner unit behind Northam Hotel.
By operating on the corner unit of the junction, its pretty hard not to miss this beutified outlet with huge trees located right at the outlet. Ample parking around the area especially you can park opposite with RM2 per entry car park instead of taking risk to be park at the road side and got fine from the MPPP.
Actually this place is own by my best friend’s sister and we have decided to dine there over the weekend for lunch, since they had been serving pretty good food previously, most of their recepi is design by themselves and head more towards homecook style. Like the ambiance of the cafe, with a bit of contemporary style yet the overall cafe look and feel is there.
If you are a smoker, you can be seated outside too, but cause of our hot weather, I prefer to stay in. 😀
As you walked towards back, they have like a mini bar stool garden concept which is nice to be seated at night. Cozy place . .
To kick start with our late Brunch, so a coffee is a must for some of us and Cafe Latte being serve and by looking at the smooth froth, know that it would be a great coffee.
Iced Latte was being order next, as best to order less ice, if not it will dilute the taste of it
Love my simple cup of Ice Lemon tea, with strong flavour of tea and hint of sourish lemon at the end.
We do not know what we are ordering as we have ask my friend’s sister to serve us what is the best. 😀
I think this would be Albacore (French Croissant with Tuna, Cheeze and salad). Upon serving, I thought – oh no~ why is my croissant is burnt on the top, thought it would not have made my day, but to my surprise it turns out to be super tasty with the style of it and the cheeze and tuna are perfectly match and I before I manage to cut into 3 pieces, it was instantly gone!
Jambon Beurre – French Croissant with Ham, butter and Salad
Another toast delight that make our day with ham carefully friend just a bit and inserted in between the bread.
Next up is Croque Madame (Ham & Cheeze with Egg) in Ciabatta bread. Finely toasted which it is very simple yet just delicious.
The super star of the day is this Pork Sausage in Cabiatta bread (don really know what is the actual name) that apparently only serve during dinner time! Pork sausage is just wonderfully friend and aroma ooze out from the sausage is just irresistible. – highly Recommended!
Aglio Olio with Extra Virgin Olive Oil @ RM9.00 is a very simple dish with lots of olive oil, olives and freshly cut tomato to cook along. Spegetthi is al dante and that Tatt whack half portion of it and left a bit for us to share! Pretty good too. .
Overall, this shop certainly serve pretty good toast if you are looking on healthy options. Other range like Speghetti as my thought, if they can cook a normal Aglio Olio tasty the rest should not be a problem! Food price is pretty affordable which is not overly price.
Service wise I have no comment cuz its different for all of us and what I have been told and read thru other blogs, you might just received it uniquely. 🙂
Highly Recommended place~
