When MAHSA Avenue is mentioned, instantly a certain glasshouse-concept cafe comes to mind but I am not going to talk about that cafe today. Instead I am going to talk about their sister cafe, Daun.
Tucked away on the second floor of Block B of MAHSA Avenue in Kedai, Daun cafe overlooks the courtyard where groups of people will flock to Pokok cafe. Despite sharing the flora-themed name, Daun is more dessert and coffee focused and projects its own cosy ambiance.
Its spacious space with wide windows allows for a lot of natural lighting to spill in over a rattan-themed tables and chairs. Plants in baskets hang from the ceiling and decorate the sharp corners in the cafe, setting a bohemian garden vibe in the cafe.
The dessert variety vary from the usual burnt cheesecake to matcha rolls. They also have French pastries for light eaters such as croissants and Kouign Amann. Craving for something a little heavier? The cafe's got you covered with savoury items such as Cottage Chicken Pie, Baked Farm and Avocado Something. The drink menu highlights coffee and tea.
As I had just come from a hearty lunch from a nearby cafe, I needed somewhere to get some work done and only had space for a cup of coffee. The coffee I would say was much nicer than what I had at Pokok recently with a robust flavour in the coffee. So hats off to the barista on duty.
I quite like the brightness of the cafe and the jazzy music they had on. As a plus point, they have a couple of plug points by the windows so it's a great spot for those working remotely. I imagine Daun would be quite crowded on weekends with crowd navigating to Kedai to chill out after lunch at Pokok.
Will I come back? Probably, if I was looking for a vibrant spot to do work from remotely. Parking at MAHSA Avenue is RM5, outside parking is RM4 so I am going to make my money's worth and spend some time there.
