The Lemon Tree, Tropicana PJ: Brunch Under the Lemon Tree

The Lemon Tree Cafe at Menara Lien Hoe, Persiaran Tropicana Petaling Jaya – another famous cafe in Klang Valley after Dusun by Openhouse Bangsar, which is also one of the latest, newest cafe restaurant in town.

The cafe literally took the social media by storm once opened to public in the mid of April, attracting cafe hoppers, family, couples, food enthusiasts to visit for not only their beautiful interior, but also a lovely range of freshly baked pastries – treats that The Lemon Tree takes pride at.

Every corner here is Instagram-worthy, spanning across 1700-square foot with high glass windows, dome ceiling, and a huge lemon tree that placed as the centerpiece of the sun-bathed, bright space.

Victorian era inspired design, making you feel like as if you have been transported into the summer days of vintage Europe.

The Lemon Tree menu covers a lovely list of sweet & savoury pastries, from basic French Butter Croissant to Double Cheese Croissant, Almond Croissant, Pistachio Croissant, Banana Nutella Croissant, Cinnamon Danish, Banana Nutella Danish, Blueberry Danish, Salted Caramel & Mix Nuts Danish Tart, Almost Croissant Tart, Tiramisu Cruffin, Smoked Turkey Ham & Cheese Tartine, Peach Mille Feuille, Quiche.

Price wise, you can get certain pastries below RM10, while main can go beyond RM30. General cafe price though.

The Lemon Tree Cafe might not serve the best brunch in town, but we do like the overall ambience that creates energetic, cheerful vibes for leisure meal to fuel up, gathering with friends and family or even to host small party for birthday, baby shower, as well as corporate event. As of our visit last week, The Lemon Tree Cafe was already half fulled when we reached at 8.15AM, and queue began to build up by 8.30AM. Guess the crowd will stay for quite a while. So, do be there early, or be ready to wait for a seating.
