Not too sure if it meant to be a hipster spot, Le Cafe does not have a big and clear signage, there's a small one at the side door (smaller than its window) though. It occupies a corner lot at Bricklin Road, a stone's throw distance away from the no-through road of Jalan Tye Kee Yoon and GAMA Supermarket. The interior decor is minimalist with a little industrial finishing, at the end of the cafe is a comfortable space most suitable for hipster-portraiture shots. Le offers a small Toast-focused menu in the mornings and snacks with alcohols for the rest of the days. In the evenings, visitors may opt to chill out at the al-fresco alley right next to the cafe. It may be a fun place to hangout or for a cup of drinks but we thought the food menu was a little less-exciting...
"Goo" Toast (Rm 15.90) + Juice (Rm 5)
Banana Chiffon Cake with Ice Cream (Rm 7.90)
There are only 2 types of savory Toasts available at Le, one being Chicken while the other one is Beef. We waited quite a while for the Beef Toast, it was merely processed Beef Burger Patty with Cheese, Japanese rolled Omelette, Cabbage and sauce, sandwiched using 2 buttered Toast. We thought the combination was a lackluster and insincere, we would definitely prefer home-made ones over processed patties. The Banana Chiffon Cake with Ice Cream was the special of the day, it was lightly drizzled with Honey and topped with a slice of Lemon. The taste was pretty predictable but a safe combination that will never go wrong.
