When Coffee hype first started, I still remember clearly that Coffee Et Cetera or known as Coffee ETC is one of the earlier player in the scene that is well known for their Belgian Waffle. Back in those days, tried a few times to visit this place while on the way dropping or fetching my friend from Subang Airport where I did not pay my attention to their operating hours which cause me visited them 3 times on Sunday and it was closed. Soon only realize, their business is base on commercial crowd and neighborhood around the area.
Coffee ETC ambiance sure do give me the hint that they are more like a fast coffee concept, where you do place your order at the counter and also found out that they are a locally establish. Over the years that they have been operating, they have created a unique concept where Café by day, Bar by night .
During night, they have live band to add on the vibe of a little music cafe/bar where service is also different. They do have a service floor staff to take order at your table instead of self service concept in the morning.
For Coffee lovers, you get to choose 3 different types of beans, from Medium Roast, Dark Roast And Darkest Roast.
Lots of magazine for you to flip through
Like any other fast coffee chain, self service counter with all the sugars and syrup is at the side and they do have merchandise for you to hunt for too.
For coffee on that day, we tried Latte Medium Roast @ RM 13.50, Dark Roast and Darkest roast along with Mocha and Chai Latte. To my suprise, their coffee is actually good where I love their Medium roast with mild hint of bitterness and sour at the end is what I prefer. Heavy coffee drinker or taste bud, Darkest roast would be your ideal. I would rate their Chai Latte @ RM 15.50 is more like a entry level, with mild hint of spice yet it is very smooth to drink.
I think their Ice Chocolate @ RM 16.50 blend beats many cafe out there with strong taste of chocolate and well balance.
To me, this is one of the star drink in the outlet. Icy Fruit Beer is so refreshing that it is quite similiar to those that I drink in one of a night market in Bangkok. It is a well balance of taste of fruit that gives you the sweetness in the blend of beer. A great thirst quencher. RM15
One of a newer item in their list is this soft fluffy pillow buns. Among the two, I prefer Grilled Chicken. Marinated well and love the sauce. Others love their Crispy Chicken with their special home made sauce. Pair it with Icy Fruit Beer, is just perfect. RM 13.50
Croissant sandwich is one of their best seller in the morning, either Scramble Egg or Tuna.
When it hit lunch time, Nasi Lemak is one of their star where chicken is fried to perfection where the skin is crispy and best of all, their sambal do not look only in fiery red, it is indeed spicy enough to make you sweat and go numb.
This is something new to me where Spicy Seafood Aglio Olio serve in special bread. Pan Fried Spaghetti with house chicken broth, olive oil, garlic, mushrooms, herbs, chili padi, shrimp, squid and light parmesan cheese @ RM 21.90
Tom Yum Seafood Spaghetti @ RM 17.90 is new in the menu, Pan Fried Tom yum Spaghetti with olive oil, straw mushrooms, herbs, chill padi, shrimp and squid.
Of course to tried out their well known Belgian Liege Waffles, starting off with original, with Haagen Dazs ice cream is top with Crushed Cookies, Chocolate Syrup & Whipped Cream.
Among the four, I love their Original where I like the taste of little sugary and slight crips on the outside yet it is slightly chewy in the middle. The rest might be a little too sweet for me.
their Best Seller – Crushed Cookies with Haagen Dazs ice Cream @ RM19.55
