2 Scones 1 Cup at Section 17 PJ receives our attention not because of another gimmick dish such as mixing blended celery in broccoli soup then topped with crispy bacon and cheese popcorn. Instead, their “out of the world scone” (*as reviewed by a Facebooker) drives us there.
The town is overwhelmed with cafes that churn out eye-pleasing desserts, artisanal coffee and innovative dishes. We are so eager to try out all, but that is too much. The practice of weekly cafe hopping hurts the wallet too, hence we try to narrow down the list, checking out some of the best cafes in KL and PJ. For this week, 2 Scones 1 Cup.
Located at the same row with skiteline, directly behind 99speedmart, 2 Scones 1 Cup houses a spacious corner that allows them to have cozy indoor area, a rather huge kitchen, and al-fresco dining space sheltered by big plants.
2 Scones 1 Cup is quiet during our visit. Clean and bright interior, complemented by dark tone furnishing for colour contrast. Major decoration lays on one of the walls with black grid panel stretched over, heavily adorned with a gallery of frames, potted plants, photos, notes, pins, etc. Overloaded but pleasing in whole, colourful, photography worthy.
The cafe is owned by few young, energetic entrepreneurs and as the shop named, 2 Scones 1 Cup is prides for their scone, available in both original flavour and scones with fruity bites including cranberry scones, blueberry scones, raisin scones and green tea scone.
Scones RM9 for 2
Every RM9 gives you a pair of freshly baked, warm scone. Surprisingly delicious, slightly crispy at the edge, crumbly and moderately soft within. Apply fruit jam and cream served along to add some sweet creaminess, so that your scone won’t taste so one-dimensional.
We had one original scone, one green tea scones (Summergirl always gives priority to food that comes with green tea) at 2 Scones 1 Cup, and agreed that original version earns our liking, even though we hope the later could be better initially. We love the aroma and buttery goodness packed within the original scones, complemented by faint hint of sweetness. The green tea scone on the other hand, is less satisfying as the bitterness of green tea seems to tone down the buttery goodness, leading to a more monotonous flavour. Despite so, it goes well with coffee and tea.
Lychee Cooler RM9
Besides scone, menu in 2 Scones 1 Cup covers also appetizer, main course, pasta, Asian delights, sandwich, croissant, bread, toasts, coffee, tea, fruit juice, cooler, soda, cakes, pastries and dessert within their easy to understand, straight forward three pages menu. Savoury dishes are reasonably priced, all below RM20 for hearty portion.
Nasi Lemak with Chicken RM8.90
This is so good and value for money! At only RM8.90, we get a plate of very fragrant and “lemak” rice, accompanied by fiery hot sambal, crispy deep fried anchovies, fried egg and deep fried chicken chop. Chicken chop is flavourful at the outside, tender inside. Just, better if the marination could infuse deeper into the meat, but this doesn’t affect our rating on 2scones1cup nasi lemak. Thumbs up for the rice.
Coffee is average, maybe they are still in the process of fine tuning the flavour. Despite so, Summergirl is glad to get her caffeine fix at 2 Scones 1 Cup while munching their best selling scones.
