Of Coffee & All-Day Breakfast @ Departure Lounge

Bagel Smoked Salmon- RM13.90; Mocha Latte- RM9; Cappuccino- RM8.50

Do you experience days when all you wanna do is laze on the couch, have a breakfast set for lunch, sip on good coffee and daydream? That's what I wanna be doing everyday!

7-item DIMY Breakfast- RM13.90; Fresh OJ- RM7.50; 5-item DIMY Breakfast- RM11.90; Mint Coffee

I have come to know about Departure Lounge since when they started in Aman Suria but never had a chance to give the place a visit as Aman Suria was never in my radar for food places (simply because I am not very familiar with it), but I have a colleague who loves Orange Juice (we call it 'OJ') and recommended Departure Lounge as having 'one of the best OJs around town'. I know I have to make a visit sometime soon somehow!

The nearest Departure Lounge would be D'sara Uptown as the outlet in Aman Suria has since closed down. I like Uptown but hate it for the rarity of a legal parking spot. Anyway, back to the OJ, coffee and all day breakfast oh yesss. The Do It My Way (DIMY) Breakfast has 3 options to choose from: 3 items, 5 items, 7 items and has everything from sausages, eggs, mushrooms, bacons, toasts, pancakes and grilled tomato. I also enjoyed the Smoked Salmon Bagel, surprisingly it was my first every bagel and I love the chewy texture and smoked salmon being my favourite salad/ sandwich accompaniment.

Salsa Wrap; Mocha Coffee; Mushroom Sandwich; Tuna Melt

The OJ was fresh but later on I found another cafe that offers better fresher OJ... so fresh it's like 'peeling it yourself'. The coffee is a must try as I learnt from a fellow coffee aficionado that they use 5 Senses coffee beans from Australia which apparently is a name associated to quality coffee beans. Yes, definitely beats having a quick cuppa from 3-in-1! If not for the difficulties of getting parking, I'll be 'parking' myself at Departure Lounge every morning for the great coffee, decent breakfast and cozy ambience.

I'm slowly finding and experiencing the wonders that is coffee. And proud to say I've already tried the most expensive coffee in the world- Kopi Luwak! More about that when I start on my Bali posts. Till then, have your coffee and drink it too ;-)

I tried the branch in Solaris for the all day breakfast! Mmmmm breakfast food at 2pm rocks! Though I dont think I've developed the taste for coffee like you have. The branch was really cosy too.
