Visited LewisGene few months ago and finally spare some time to write about this humble cafe. Situated on first floor, a corner lot along the busy street at Solaris Mont Kiara, LewisGene Espresso, Tea & Machine can be easily missed out especially during night time. To be exact, LewisGene is located right above the former Chilla Cup (*which is now relocated to few streets away, named as Pretz n’ Beanz), nearby Gangnam88 Korean Restaurant, Dr. Cafe, Coffee Beans & Tea Leaf, Starbucks Solaris.
Door is generally locked for safety purpose. So just “push the button” and friendly staff from LewisGene will welcome you in with a smile. Our friends said that LewisGene is always fullhouse during their visit, hence we were delighted to find the cafe on an empty, quiet environment as we stepped in at around 8pm one Sunday evening.
Coffee counter is heavily decked up with all types of loose teas, coffee beans, glasses, coffee machines, coffee brewing equipments that makes LewisGene lives up to its name, the place for “Espresso, Tea & machines”. Menu is on chalkboard, densely written with what this coffee place has to offer- waffles, espresso-based coffee, modernity-infused coffee, waffles, cakes, breakfast, spaghetti, sandwiches, omelette, bla bla bla~~ so extensive that we didn’t bother to read, as the handwriting was so small, difficult to read.
LewisGene’s interior is charming and cozy, thoughtfully designed to have shinny concrete floors completed with walls painted in maroon, furnitures in different styles from sofas, high tables with long-leg-stools, small wooden tables and chairs for two, familiar dining tables and chairs that reminded us the famous home furnishing store in Damansara. Dim lighting + framed photos + magazines + comfy sofa, lay back and enjoy! LewisGene make us feel like home.
A coffee in pleasing look gets more points at the first glance. Can’t deny most people love beautiful things. While many cafes strive to bring out the best latte art, 3D latte art, or interesting designs through free-pour or etching, LewisGene receives attention from their symmetrical-looking coffee art.
Adorable coffee cup and saucer made us feel more homey.
For those who prefer to sit outside, LewisGene offers a small outdoor area overlooking the bustling street of Solaris Mont Kiara. Colour wooden planks built up the walls, with a huge lantern hanging from ceiling, denoting Oriental feelings. Definitely a nice place to chill. Hopefully LewisGene will be as comfortable in our future visit.
