The best place for coffee and scones in KL: Le Lapin Cafe, Taman Desa

Our home is the most excellent BOMB!

The best Korean restaurant in KL, authentic Japanese BBQ + beer plus the world's friendliest local fruit mart are literally within walking distance from home. Last weekend, we also discovered a really special rabbit hole housing really delicious coffee for a fraction of the typical Starbucks price also walking distance to our house.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you - Le Lapin.


Lucky! We were the first customers, so it was still quiet. By the time we left an hour later, the place was quickly filling up with tea timers. Le Lapin is odd because despite the beautifully decorated cafe, THIS CAFE DOES NOT HAVE A SIGNBOARD so it's kind of the local's secret coffee place. 



The Hot Irish Coffee - alcohol included. Only RM12. 


I loved this so much, perfect for a hot weekend out. Arabica coffee ice cubes with milk, also RM12. 


The coffee ice cubs were so strong that no amount of milk added could dilute the lovely taste of strong, good quality coffee. You know that you just want to put it in your mouth.



Who says manly men can't enjoy coffee and scones! *flex muscles* 


Me and the crazy intricate hand painted wall. 



This is a scone (RM7)! It's freshly baked and was hot when we carved into it. It's so large that the both of us couldn't finish it. 

So if you're looking for a good place to nurse a cup of coffee and alone time with your beau, girlfriends or with a book, then I highly recommend this place. A word to the wise though - this coffeeshop is run by one lone fabulous woman so the operation hours are a little off. Despite the fact that it was supposed to open at 9am, the doors were open only at 11am+, so it's better if you visit from noon onwards to avoid disappointment (but it's worth it, in the end!). 

Le Lapin Cafe 
31-1, First Floor, Plaza Danau 2, Jalan 109F, Taman Danau Desa, Kuala Lumpur.
Tel: 03-7497-0407

Open 8am-5pm everyday except TUESDAYS. Weekends 9am-5pm.

So these days, I only drop by Starbucks when I need to get my caffeine fix in takeaway format. The good news is that the Toffee Nut Latte drink is back for Christmas season at Starbucks. Yay!
