If you think you know your coffee well and would love to showcase the talent and artist in you, make a trip to Barista Haus at the new Ropewalk Piazza at Jalan Pintal Tali. This particular cafe takes the humble cup to new heights of fun and especially appealing to both coffee nerds and casual caffeine seekers. Customers are encouraged to DIY their own Latte Arts (at a discounted rate, you need not pay full price for your cup of Latte) and in a way, you are attending a barista class (they will show and guide you how to make Latte Art)! On the menu, Barista Haus is a dessert-focused cafe with specialization in Belgium Waffles (hefty prices though). The interior decor is clean and the whole space is covered in shades of white, a decent place to grab a quick cup of Joe.
Mixed Fruits with Waffle and Ice Cream (Rm 18.90)
Matcha Waffle with Ice Cream (Rm 15.90)
There are two options available- Plain Waffle or Matcha Waffle. The latter option would cost an additional Rm 1. The combination of Waffle with Ice Cream was good enough for us, the fruits were of unnecessary frills (they didn't blend in well). The Waffles had crispy edges with soft-chewy middle but we thought it was a little doughy and not as fluffy as we would have hoped. The Vanilla Ice Cream worked well with Matcha Waffle- the Matcha flavor was discernible but not too bold to overpower the Ice Cream.
