Chilla Cup at Quill 7 Sentral is a great place for a good cup of coffee and nice breakfast.
Compared to our first visit to Chilla Cup, the food was less salty this time.
Like our previous visit, we upgraded our coffee to Latte for an additional MYR 3.00 each.
Chilla Cup Latte
We chose beef bacon, hash brown and scrambled eggs for our continental breakfast set this time.
The beef bacon was less salty and less crispy than the first time, but it was better this time. The hash browns were delicious while the scrambled egg was also less salty much to our likings.
Filled Pretzel set
Filled Pretzel set with pepperoni
We also ordered breakfast set B or Filled Pretzel set with pepperoni (beef) as our preferred filling. As the pretzel also has cheese, the mix of both cheese and pepperoni has made it tastes like pepperoni pizza. Having pepperoni pizza for breakfast was perhaps a bit too filling.
Besides pepperoni, one can also choose apple cinnamon, sweet corn, sweet potato, red bean or hotdog (chicken) for the filling.
Verdict: The food was less salty than our previous visit. We were glad the management took notice of our review and improved the food. We truly enjoyed the food and the coffee, of course.

Nescafe Cafe Menu Mocha Double Choca
Nescafe Cafe Menu Mocha Double Choca is chocolaty and sweet. In fact, it tastes more like a cocoa drink than a cup of regular Joe. Despite that, Mocha Double Choca is simply irresistible and convenient if you feel too lazy to walk down to the cafe.
Nescafe Cafe Menu Mocha Double Choca is imported from South Africa.
Retailing at MYR 24.99 at Cold Storage.

Chilla Cup is a great place to chill out for a great cup of coffee and pretzels! Recently, my wife and I went to Chilla Cup at Quill 7 Sentral for a good cup of coffee and breakfast.
Chilla Cup has a disc-shaped pager like Tom Tom Coffee which vibrates once the coffee are ready to be collected at the counter.
Breakfast Deals at Chilla Cup
Every breakfast sets come with either Americano or Gourmet tea. An upgrade to Latte or Cappuccino would cost an additional MYR 3.00.
Chilla Cup Latte
As we weren’t a fan of Americano nor Tea, we upgraded our hot drinks to Latte.
The Latte was pleasant and aromatic as it was brewed from freshly roasted beans.
Breakfast set D consists of continental breakfast served with toast. For MYR 9.90, it comes with one choice of add-on sides while for MYR 12.90, it comes with any 3 add-on sides, MYR 15.90 comes with any 5 and MYR 17.90 comes with any 7. Add-on sides consist of beef bacon, hash brown, chicken sausage, baked beans, egg (omelete/scrambled), grilled tomatoes or sauteed mushrooms.
The beef bacon was quite salty, at times, I thought I was eating salty fish. The egg was also a bit on the salty side, so was the chicken sausage.
Pretzel set (Parmesan)
Breakfast set A consists of pretzel set and the flavors available are plain, original, cinnamon sugar or Parmesan.
Parmesan pretzel was also quite salty and cheesy as well.
Verdict: The coffee was good, the ambiance was not too bad as it is always nice to see white-collar workers walk past by starring at us enjoying a good cup of coffee at rush hour. However, the food was a bit on the salty side and could be better with less salt. Still, the breakfast sets are a steal as normally a cup of Latte/Cappuccino would cost around MYR 9.50 – MYR 10.50
Update: We visited Chilla Cup for a second time and found the food was less salty this time around.
Besides at Quill, Chilla Cup are also located at Solaris Mont Kiara and Subang Avenue Shopping Mall. Unlike Quill 7 Sentral which opens only on weekdays, the other branches open till late and on the weekends too.

Marmalade Cafe in Bangsar Village II has established itself for quite sometime. It was only until recently I managed to pay a visit to Marmalade Cafe for a quick dinner with coffee, of course.
Marmalade Cafe’s Flat White
Flat White is nothing extraordinary. The price of MYR 8.00 is a little steep though.
Marmalade Cafe’s Cappuccino
Cappuccino is just lovely even without the sugar, it tastes just right. Cappuccino is priced at MYR 9.00
Verdict: The coffee wasn’t so bad. The coffee art, of course, did add a little something to it which made the coffee tastes nicer. Coffee art is not a new thing — at least, we all know there are many cafes that have baristas who can make great coffee arts and decent coffee.

Cafe Le Passione at Hartamas Shopping Centre may not be your everyday coffee joint but the local folks love this place.
Cafe Le Passione’s Caffe Mocha
Caffe Mocha was love at first sight with the beautiful coffee art but nevertheless, it was nothing extraordinary and somewhat a little pricey for a hot drink at MYR 10.50.
Verdict: Not a bad cafe at all, it’s pretty quiet. However, the location is not ideal and the place is situated on a desolated shopping mall.
