The first time I planned to go there was a long line of people waiting outside on the sunny Saturday morning. Needless to say, it’s popular enough that one actually has to plan their trip there right to actually be able to get a table. 

Tucked in between Bangsar and Bukit Damansara, the area has ample parking spaces by means of a paid parking lot. The shop is right at the corner of the shop lots in the area and easily seen from the street. You can opt to sit on the outside or the cosy inside, although it is a little bit more cramped on the inside. Interiors are very prettily done, and feels very cosy with warm lighting and an open coffee bar area. There are two signboards, which make me a bit confused – Yellow Brick Road and Wicked Pancakes (which makes me wonder if it’s a collaboration between two places)? 

The menu has a reasonable mix of breakfast and lunch options, although the specialty seems to be their pancakes (a whole page of them) – also their Asian accented dishes! Being a breakfast person, I mostly tried the pancakes during my visit here. 

I tried their Drew Barry More – which was perfectly done; light fluffy pancakes with a generous serving of pavlova on top, topped off with berries galore. The pavlova was beautifully done, and the sauce had that perfect tanginess to offset the sweet taste.

It’s A Little Bit Nutty is a decadent treat, between the blend of sweet banana and the shavings of dark chocolate and the creaminess of peanut butter, broken up nicely by the salted caramel ice cream. Best enjoyed slowly.

The French toast is served with caramel kaya sauce and coconut mascarpone cheese and fruits – daring combination, but it seems to work. I love mascarpone, but coconut is a tricky flavour; so my brain was sending my all sorts of weird signals!

Going with their Asian infused theme, the Peter Pandan pancakes were so visually interesting, and definitely had a strong taste of pandan, which went nicely with the jackfruit, salted caramel ice cream and gula Melaka sauce.

If you love our local pandan desserts, this is definitely worth a try. One of my favourites had to be the Breakfast Pancake, for fickle-minded diners like me who can’t make up their mind if they want pancakes or muesli – this combines granola, yoghurt and honey with dried cranberries, mangoes, passionfruit and blueberries. I love the crunch in every bite!

Breakfast Pancake
Except for their classic pancakes, most of the other pancakes and breakfast dishes range around RM20++. Drinks average around RM8-RM12.

For breakfast enthusiasts like me, this has definitely become one of my favourite haunts; although you do have to come early as they don't take bookings on weekends and public holidays.

Enjoying a birthday treat!
