Ra-Ft KL, an Ialian-style cafe that prides itself on coffee roasting – done in-house, using roasting machine directly imported from Italy and green beans sourced from different regions such as Central America, Eastern Africa, Asia and South America.
Despite having coffee as the centre stage, Ra-Ft KL is worth visiting for more than just caffeine-fix. Food here, especially brunch options, are real good stuff. From laborious home-made breads and home-cured salmon to things as basic as poached eggs, you can get them right and tasty here. Easily our top recommendations when comes to breakfast/brunch places in KL.
Ra-Ft KL first opened in Binjai 8 Premium Soho Ampang, a quiet oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the city, yet centrally located as it is only about 20 minutes walk from the iconic KLCC Twin Towers, at the same time easily accessed from LRT Ampang station – like just 5 minutes away.
Another branch is in Arcoris Mont Kiara, opposite to Hyatt House Mont Kiara, also the building next to the new 163 retail park. Not sure when it was opened, maybe last year, as we saw it when going for dinner at Majapahit Arcoris.
Ra-Ft KL menu summarizes a comprehensive lists of any-time breakfast and Western-Italian classics with Asian twist, all well categorized. French Toast, Egg Benedicts, Bagels, bircher Muesli, fish, poultry, pho, salad, pasta, pad thai, burgers, pancakes, French croissant, big breakfast – have your choice.
Two types of big breakfast are offered here – Ra-Ft Breakfast with fixed combination of home made bread, butter mushrooms, baked beans, roasted tomatoes, streaky bacon, chicken/pork sausage, scrambled egg/sunny side up, Ra-Ft smashed potatoes;
and Create Your Own Breakfast RM28.50 where you can choose your bread (multigrain/gluten free/ croissant/ english muffin), the way you like your eggs (scrambled/sunny side up/fried both side/ poached), your proteins (chicken sausage/pork sausage/bacon/home cured salmon), and two sides to go with (mushrooms/baked beans/roasted tomatoes/smashed potatoes).
The Botanist RM25 – a vegetarian dish that caught Summergirl’s attention the most, as not many cafes have vegetable-loaded brunch dish like this other than salad.
Gluten free bread with mashed peas spread, further layered up with broccoli, zucchini, kale and pea sprouts! Not to forget, a poached egg hidden within.
Besides all-day-breakfast, Italian-style Carbonara pasta, Lemon Cicken Scaloppine, Fish & Chips, Ra-Ft Signature Burger are worthwhile too.
Coffee is rather price friendly. Below RM10 for our latte and cappuccino. Plunger, Vietnamese style and cold brew Speciality coffees are available too. Or you can go for Chai Latte, Matcha Latte, Beetroot Latte, Golden Milk Latte, Hot Chocolate and healthier beverage like fresh juices.
Order a dessert if you still have rooms after the meal. Ra-ft House Made desserts received plenty of positive reviews too. Ra-ft Tiramisu, Bread & Butter Pudding, Pavlova with Fresh Fruits, Gluten Free Chocolate Brownies, Ra-Ft Bird Nest with Vanilla Ice Cream – give them a try!
Overall, we enjoyed our brunch here. Nice coffee, delicious food. Loud applause to their friendly and helpful staffs even though being busy. It was a full house when we reached that day, but the staff tried their best to get us a table outdoor. We said we didn’t mind waiting but the staffs still politely ask few diners if they could separate the extra tables for us, instead of leaving us to queue and wait. Really appreciate and thank you so much! Will be back again!
