It is yet another new cafe in my neighbourhood which is refreshing after seeing the same old places year after year.
However, Bandits Coffee Bar might be a little hard to spot since there is no signage to indicate its exact location. Perhaps it is a play on their name?
But since I am rather familiar to the area, it wasn't too hard to find. Parking, on the other hand, can be quite a pain. Best not to park by the roadside on weekdays as police often patrol the area to freely hand out summons.
Staff are young and energetic over here. A lot of the food is displayed openly. You place your order at the cashier, just next to the food display. I am not sure how hygienic this can be. The menu is also placed on the counter at the cashier, which makes ordering for those who have never visited the cafe a little challenging. It might be better for the owners of the cafe to display their menu on the wall behind the cashier for better flow in the future.
I had a Smores brownie, which was soft and gooey and warm on the inside. It absolutely made my day!
A colleague of mine ordered the beef and eggplant salad. It was less so of a salad than beef and eggplant atop a bed of lentils, but it's still a rather healthy dish overall.
Another colleague of mine ordered the scrambled eggs (RM18) and loved it, saying the eggs were cooked perfectly. It was soft and milky.
Food was fairly decent and priced reasonably considering the neighbourhood. Prices were also nett, something we really appreciated. However, pricing and the menu could be displayed a lot better.
Another thing I noticed about the place is that seating is very limited although not due to space constraints. A lot of space is wasted because of how the tables are positioned.
