Half & Hāfu Cafe Petaling Jaya – Not sure what took us so long to visit this hipster cafe in SS2, but we are glad that we finally made it, on a weekday off day. Yay!
Situated in The Hub SS2, a commercial hub that also houses eateries like Flakes Cafe, Mei by Fat Spoon, Kooky Cream and Slow Coffee, Half & Hafu gains the attention of cafe hoppers not only on their interior, but also matcha toast that worth a return visit, though just simple food.
We spent some time looking for Half & Hafu as we are not so familiar with this place. It is located at another side of those popular cafes, which has less foot traffic. Upstairs, sharing same space with their hair saloon – creative snip & sip concept. We first thought that we went to the wrong shop. Haha.
Half and Hafu is not a huge cafe, but it doesn’t fall short of Instagram-worthy corners. Cozy and laid-back, lots of green plants that blends well with the design. Especially beautiful in the morning with rays of sunlight, just the way we like.
Matcha Toast RM9 – Crusty fresh toast, served with a side of matcha spread. Just spread generously, they gave more than enough matcha spread. Leftover? No. So good we don’t mind having another 1 or 2 servings of this.
For beverage, other than espresso-based coffee, Half & Hafu also takes pride in their matcha & houjicha series, offering houjicha latte, hot matcha, hot chocolate. Must-try specialty drink – Half & Hafu, a concoction of espresso, chocolate, dry bitter orange and milk. We had only Hot Match RM9, as we are saving the stomach space for coffee at 270sqft at Seapark KL, and pipping hot soup ramen at Ramen Bar Menya Shi Shi Do Gasket Alley.
