Review: Back in March 2010 blogpost, the founders of the cafe, Pat Teoh & Yati Hamzah came to met me asking me few stuff about this whole Officekami thing + mobile working trend in Malaysia. Little that I know they were going to open a cafe. It came as a surprise when one of my twitter friends, Zana Fauzi / Knufflebunneh told me to review Paper & Toast just a few weeks previously.
I was like… I kinda heard this Paper + Toast but where. Until i realize their email last few month.
They did it pretty a decent, excellent mobileoffice. A praise for that. And the price is pretty fair too. They do have a Hot-Desking facilities available for just RM17 for 2 hours ( RM8.50 per hour but minimum usage of the desk is 2 hours ) including unlimited supply of coffee. They have 2 meeting rooms for rent and since they have two floors, you can work at peace at the first floor without worrying the visitors who came to have their lunch, staring at you.
This is the panoramic view of the top floor. Since there’s a lot of picture I put it in spoiler mode
The entrance of paper & toast.
Looking at their interior design, it’s pretty good. There’s parts with glasses and there’s part where you can use if you can’t handle distraction. But, even the cafe is located at the heart of KL, a busy town, the street are not that noisy. It’s pretty calm. The nearest monorail would be Jalan Raja Chulan. 5 minutes walk. I advise for any visitors that going here to take a public transport, or you might need to find a per-entry parking. Parking inside KL building will cost you a cup of expensive coffee. (I previously park at KLCC and the parking rate is RM21 >_< )
Their food is fairly priced and appealing. They have lunch meal for RM13.90 consist of a sandwich that you can choose from 4 selection (there’s 1 for vegetarian) and a glass of apple/orange juice. Below are the picture of ..
I think this is their Vietnamese Chicken Bahn Mi
Italian Turkey Ham Panini
And lastly they have cupcakes for you freelances to work, sugar high!
Yet to taste their muffin. Previously ordered their cappucino. Tastes great. For me it could match Cappucino from Espressamente Illy & Coffee Ritual. And it is served inside their paper cup.
