Formally known as Chilla Cup, the cafe is now re-branded as Pretz n’ Beanz, striving to enhance diners’ experience from all points- service, food, as well as environment. In fact, this new name Pretz n’ Beanz, together with a logo designed in the shape of half pretzel and half coffee bean, has delivered a better insight into their highlights all this while- good coffee and delicious pretzel.
Located as a corner shop along the busy street of Solaris Mont Kiara, Kuala Lumpur, opposite to Cafe Bene, this Pretz n’ Beanz is the first Chilla Cup that went through rebranding, and the other three outlets at Subang Avenue Mall, Ikano Power Center Shopping Mall (IPC) and SkyPark@One City Mall will welcome diners with brand new outlook soon too.
Interior is a match of homey space with industrial touch- Pendant lamp hanging from black colour ceiling, lighting up the entire cafe in soft yellowish light. Wooden tables in dark and light shade on wooden and concrete floorings, with colourful sofas and chairs to drive a more lively environment. Rustic feel is created with exposed bricks wall, and wire wall racks mounted with potted plants and framed pictures.
Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel RM5.90
You can’t go wrong ordering their most popular item here- pretzel, from the most original flavour to filled pretzel, everything just taste so good. If Pretz n’ Beanz were to open an outlet around my working place, I would surely buy myself one as breakfast daily. Grab-and-go style seems to work great for this cafe.
Basil Cheese RM6.90
While Original and Plain are nice, chewy and fluffy with a faint hint of saltiness, we also like their pretzel dotted with extra flavours including Chocolate Peanut Crunch, Chocolate Cookie Crunch, Cinnamon Sugar, Basil Cheese, Sesame Sugar. You can also opt for dipping sauce(Caramel, chocolate, cream cheese, sour cream and Onion) at RM2.00.
Apple Cinnamon Filled Pretzel RM10.90
Filled pretzel add more taste and texture into your munch, available in both sweet and savoury version – Apple Cinnamon, Pepperoni Beef, Island Delight, Spicy Tuna, Cheesy Chilli Chicken, Jumbo Chicken Hotdog and Jumbo Cheesy Chicken Hotdog.
Sweet Potato Filled Pretzel RM10.90
Among all, we like Apple Cinnamon Filled Pretzel and Sweet Potato Filled Pretzel the most, where the former has warm, gluey sweet jam filling made from fresh apple and the later lends heafy of creaminess and honeyed flavour from mashed sweet potato.
Aglio Olio Prawn Pasta RM24.90
For diners looking for a proper meal, Pretz n’ Beanz offers also All-Day-Dining main dishes to feed your tummy. Not exactly long-winded but sufficient to cater for quick lunch and dinner. Aglio olio pasta, baked banger & macaroni, bolognaise chicken pasta, carbonara chicken ham pasta, dory fish with sour cream pasta, spicy seafood pasta, cheesy mushroom chicken baked rice, chicken burger, fish & chips, caesar salad, are part of the choices.
Spicy Seafood Pasta RM24.90
This Spicy Seafood Pasta is meant for spicy lovers, having each strand of the spaghetti coated with spiciness that numbs your tongue, fiery hot yet so addictive. Tossed with generous amount of squid, prawns, mussels and vegetables for a balanced nutrition.
Dory Fish with Sour Cream Pasta RM19.90
One of the best seller in Pretz n Beanz. Since we still consider it as a cream based pasta, we expect it to be creamy, and Pretz n’ Beanz’s version doesn’t disappoint us- Rich and creamy but not as heavy and cloying comparing to carbonara pasta, with light sourish zing from sour cream, equally enjoyable.
When handmade pretzel dough is used to substitute normal pizza base, you will expect more chewiness in your pizza, more than just plain freshness of bread. And that is what Pretz n’ Beanz prides for their pretzel pizza- Crispy at the edge, soft and doughy in the middle and flavoured up with delicious toppings, laid with extra cheese.
Chicken Hawaiian Pizza RM20.90
Pizza selection includes sweet potato, double cheese, chicken hawaiian, hot pepper chilli chicken, al-funghi, Norwegian delight and pepperoni beef. We recommend Hot Pepper Chili Chicken if you loved spicy; Chicken Hawaiian for more classic choice, and of course, sweet potato if you like a mix of natural sweetness with salty cheesiness.
Royale Salmon Egg Benedict RM22.90
Egg benedict isn’t the best choice in Pretz n’ Beanz, but still decent overall, just we prefer a more runny egg yolk. No harm ordering in case you are craving for it.
Country Ham Egg Benedict RM18.90
Caramel Butter Thick Toast RM13.90
As this Caramel Butter Thick Toast first arrived on the table, we thought this hearty portion of thick toast was ideal for sharing but as we sinked our teeth into it, ” I don’t want to share this” popped up in our mind. It was surprisingly tasty, as the toast is crispy outside, pillow soft inside, goes really well with the mellow whipped cream, flavour levelled up with sweetness of honey and buttery fragrance. Must-try!
Caffe Mocha RM12.00
Our mocha house blend fares on a milkier side, less bitter, nicely frothed. Pretz n’ Beanz Green Tea Latte and Caffe Green Mint Mocha go into Summergirl’s top pick, as she said that it had been some time she hadn’t tasted a decent green tea latte that showcases a balance sensation between milk and aroma of green tea.
