The Midnight Baker at Seni Mont Kiara: Cafe ReviewSean Yoong
March 4, 2016
Jason bakes bread, his wife Cheryl crafts cakes and pastries, and their buddy Neil makes coffee – The Midnight Baker is a fetching new stop for a fuss-free breakfast, lunch or tea, run by a small, self-reliant team with skill and soul.
Did you know?
Fun Fact No. 1: Curious about the cafe’s name? Jason has a separate day-job, so he oversees the oven only after most of us have headed to bed.
Fun Fact No. 2: If you’ve missed popular barista Neil Ng, he’ll be here for the next several months, helping his friends set up shop.
Recommendations? The chicken sandwich is constructed with satisfying bread, fresh and flavoursome, dense but yielding, stuffed with a substantial balance of tender, well-marinated meat and wholesome vegetables. The pesto tomato quiche succeeds as a light, savoury meal, while the scones come crumbly-buttery, infused with real vanilla and served with kitchen-made cream.
The sweet stuff
Cap off your visit with a caramel chocolate pecan bar, an indulgence worth the calories, paired with coffee that hits the spot. And if you have kids, they might enjoy the play corner here, ideal for a idyllically cosy cafe in a calm Mont Kiara condominium.
