[Update 3 May 2016: Coast and Company have closed for a new retail concept catered to cyclists.]
Coast and Company is one of those off-the-beaten-track cafes that you’d be better off biking or driving to. The cafe cum bike workshop is a heaven sent for cycling enthusiasts who plan on catching a cuppa and checking out new gear.
For non-cyclists – like me – the residential cafe offers some respite from the crowded urban areas.
The urban chic interior, coupled with a crew of chill-looking baristas and servers, gives this place a laid back atmosphere which is always welcome on a weekend jaunt. The menu is really simple – classic brunch selections like toast, croissants and salads. But hey, nobody said you could go wrong with the classics. 😉
The Beef Rendang Hotdog is something of a fusional dish, featuring pork sausage drizzled with beef rendang, diced onions and coriander leaf. The sausage was reasonably juicy, with the rendang adding just enough heat. Would have preferred the bun to be less dry, though. Honey dijon potato chips.. well they are chips after all, but it was nice to have the rendang as a dip. 😛
Plating wise, it was aesthetically pleasing. But it became a tad tricky to cut into the hot dog without having some spillage; perhaps a bigger plate would do the trick?
Coffee is sourced from Papa Palheta. The Hot Mocha completed my meal perfectly with just the right hint of bitterness. 🙂
When it comes to food and decor, it’s clear the Coast and Company keeps it simple. And that’s its charm. And for those who love taking their OOTD and brunch Instagram pictures, the creeper plants outside make for a very cool background. 😉
