Antipodean is a kiwi style cafe that has taken KL city by storm. Serving good coffee and a delicious breakfast spread, this little premise is packed to the brim almost every morning. Expect to see expats with kids and/or their pets in tow, as this place is extremely child/animal friendly. Hence securing a table can be a difficult matter; so it is better to come in a group of 2-4 as they only have 2 tables which catered to big group.
Antipodean Cafe carries an Aussie vibe – filled with lifting coffee aroma, cramped but cozy interior and buzzing with activities.
Antipodean Cafe has got their menu all scribbled on the chalk board that spans across a wall. How I wish that they have a hand out menu because I have to keep turning my head around to study the menu carefully.
Uses only top quality coffee beans roasted by Indonesia’s top specialty roaster – Merdeka Coffee; one can be assured of a good cuppa over here. My coffee packed a punch with its pungent coffee aroma.
Iced Mochachino – RM10
Cafe Latte- RM8
Croissant Scrambled eggs with bacon – RM18
Brimming with luscious smoked salmon, this sumptious and decently portioned omelette is a perfect brunch dish.
All Day Breakfast – RM18
Toast, choice of bacon, chicken, beef or pork sausages, baked beans, scrambled eggs & grilled tomatoes
It is a must order at Antipodean Cafe! It was so hearty and wholesome? The generous portion is more than enough to feed two ladies with small stomach. The pork bacon/sausage stood out amongst the other for its smokey flavour and perfect texture. The scrambled eggs were so moist, with a nice buttery whiff. I also love the home made hash brown which packed a punch. It is a very substantial dish so I always share a big breakfast + an side order of pork bacon with a girl friend.
Pumpkin and Sweet Corn Fritter with Bacon (RM 18)
Somehow, I really like the corn fritters here (which I tried on separate occassion) too. Soft in the middle and slightly crispy on the edge, every forkful reveals a generous amount of corns.
Kiwi Style Lamb Burger (RM 25). I tried this when I drop by for dinner one day. The patty was so juicy and flavourful but not too overpowering.
It is also a great place to satisfy a birthday girls’s big breakfast cravings. Happy Birthday to our dearest Christine and thanks to Ivy for the chocolate crumble cake.
All in all, Antipodean Cafe has all the makings of a great breakfast joint – great quality coffee and consistently good food. Breakfast is also served all day, so one can actually drop by for dinner to avoid the breakfast crowd. We have seen ourselves going back again and again over the weekends too – our favourite brunch place to date!
