OldTown White Coffee

I woke up early this morning ... got myself ready to follow my dad out to pick up my car from the Car Hospital. Hope that the doctor could discharge my car in the morning... So i could hit the gym in the afternoon. As Manglish dude mentioned, "Car... Gym.... Car... Gym... etc". Please don't ask me what he mean, I was blur too... Just forget about it... :p


Since i catched my Dad's taxi out early in the morning, i have to find a place to get online... all the cafe with Wifi in the surrounding was still closed... I have no choice to walk my heavy leg into the Oldtown White Coffee. NO CHOICE...

Getting inside the cafe without ordering was very bad... so i have no choice to order something. Surfing through their menu... I came across a RM4.50++ breakfast set #1 (Two eggs, One piece of Kaya/Butter bread, One Oldtown White Coffee)... As i wanna to upgrade to ice coffee... it cost me another RM1.00++ just for the ice and sugar. Was not very happy and keen about, i updated my FB

TZ is waiting for his car to be ready... sipping sugar water @ Oldtown Cafe. No other choice since he wanna a Wifi connection... :(

A friend of mine actually asking what do i mean sugar water? Let me show you...


hehehe... this is what i meant sugar water. Their coffee was getting worst. I request for less sugar but they just ignored my request... sigh~ sigh~ sigh~ For the amount that we paid for the coffee, the quality is not there and the amount of coffee is getting smaller and smaller. BTW, the bread was prepared upfront, it was harden, kaya/butter was not melted into the bread... I was so disappointed with their food too. I really missed the toast @ Chong Kok kopitiam, Klang.


Talk about the environment, Oldtown cafe no way can compare to Starbie. No smell of coffee... music is loud, kids running wild with unbearable noise, burning toast and worst with BO staff... Unlike, Starbie, nice coffee smell, morning greet by the staff, soft music... What a nice kick to start the day...

So what would your choice?

Guess what, I don't go OldTown anymore! They are really getting from bad to worse!

Nothing on their menu interest me and you are right, the ambience there is lousy! For the kaya and butter bread, I rather buy my own bread and apply kaya and butter myself! : )

Compared with Papparich, (which is not that good either), OldTown is really horrible! How come people still go there in droves?

i've only been to OldTown once, which is in LCCT where there is not much choice.. i personally think there are a lot more similar cafe doing much better than OT.. it's just because OT is the pioneer that is why it is more widely known, that's it..

i think there are just too many this kind of fancy kopitiams these days...so many i dont even remember which one i have gone to...i remember going to the one opposite sunway pyramid and then there is a new one in ss15 in subang jaya....honestly..nothing to shout about, i dont why ppl will pay so much for a cup of coffee when you can get it at half the price in normal coffeshop :P ohhh for the wifi...:)
