While touring my Indonesian friend for jalan jalan cari makan at Petaling Street, then suddenly stumble upon this cafe that do rings a bell to me. Jao Tim is one of the latest cafe that a few of my friend had visited that gave good comments in their social media. Jao Tim in Cantonese means hotel.

They are located at level 1 and the entrance into their cafe do give you a luxury 70’s New York vibe. Upon opening the door, you are greeted with nice cold breeze after a stroll in our hot weather, and wooden stair case that leads you up to the Concierge.

Love their classic touch for this place, that remains industrial luxury look. Many coffee hopers here are admiring their furniture and the golden classic switch.

We are just here for the coffee. My usual is the latte @ RM 11. This is slightly mild bitter and also gives you a mild frutti floral end.

It is hard for you to miss them if you are at the opposite section and if you do walk the same stretch, just look for the golden door.

Not a bad place to hang out for coffee especially their air con is powerful!
