I have heard much about Moment Café 时光•咖啡 and how it is cat-inspired with feline decorations. That was two years ago, and I finally made my way there recently. Yes, it’s inspired by cats, a play of the owner’s name I presume, but the decorations are very modest and not overwhelming. One could easily miss out the theme.
Offering a menu of Western fusion cuisine and a selection of Taiwanese-style braised pork belly rice, if you come here, be prepared to wait to be served as service is rather slow, compared to the other similar cafés in town.
Also, while the taste and plating are commendable, the pricing is on the medium to high side for dishes on the à la carte menu. Bring the price of your meal down by going for “sets”; topping up RM1, RM2 or RM3 for add ons of Soup of the Day, drink and/or ice cream.
As you can see from our lunch, the dishes are of medium portions. If you are not keen on main courses, you can go for Moment Café’s range of snacks, desserts, ice creams and beverages. I find them very appealing and may visit again during tea time. Also, if I were to go within the next 30 days, I would enjoy 10% off my bill, if it is above RM50.
Advantages of Moment Café, for me, are the free flow of plain water (self-service), no service tax and free parking! Downside, this is a cash-only eatery.
