No Longer in Operation.

Ecole P_1

One of December’s most delightful discoveries, this Damansara Utama cafe shoots straight to the top of the class with a back-to-school vibe that’s colorfully charming and whimsically evocative.Ecole P_2

Back to School

The owners of Ecole P have done their homework, flooding this space with detail-crammed chalkboards, tables and stools that might remind many Malaysians of their primary school years.

Ecole P marks a collaboration by Steven Heng and Ilrene Tee, both alumni of Taylor’s University’s hospitality courses who’ve sought to create a cafe where the carefree innocence and imagination of childhood spring stirringly back to life.

Ecole P_3

The counter here is chock-full of snacks, sweets and assorted junk food, equipped exactly like the best school cafeteria, while the shelves are well-stocked with writing utensils, revision booklets and even tiny trophies (highest achievement in mathematics?).Ecole P_4


A salad comes served with savory-sugary haw flakes, plus a Spongebob backpack and a case that opens to reveal cutlery instead of color pencils.Ecole P_5

Set Lunch

Ecole P’s soft-launch menu remains limited, but top marks must be handed to the fried rice with salted egg yolk crumble, green peas and deliciously juicy chicken chop. Prices are fair; the salad and rice constitute a set lunch that costs RM18.80 nett.Ecole P_6


Love the presentation for the beverages; this peanut butter smoothie, mixed with ice cream and tiramisu lady fingers for a textural grit, proves worth its many calories.Ecole P_7

Penang’s Lighthouse Coffee forms the foundation for Ecole P’s lattes.Ecole P_8
