Quality Food & Coffee @ Coffee Societe, Publika

I'm actually quite a big fan of Publika. It's very artsy and is probably the best place to hang-out with friends and family at the many cafes and restaurants located in the mall itself. Unfortunately, there isn't a Harvey Norman so it actually sounds like a boring place to Deardo, which explains why I don't go there so often. And by that I meant like, once in a year? 
We were so bad with Publika that we needed a map to get around.
Anyway, since my colleague Lea has always been telling me how Coffee Societe has really nice coffee, I said hey, let's go and try it out!
Not the most unique-looking cafe actually. Cafes decos and designs are certainly getting more competitive. 
Honestly, compared to other cafes (except for maybe those commercialised ones), the cafe was pretty crowded on a Ramadhan month's Sunday afternoon. No queue, but almost fully occupied. The cafe is also pretty cozy and quiet too.
Since it was brunch time, I ordered a breakfast while Deardo went for a spaghetti dish.
House Smoked Salmon Aglio Olio, RM22.
The Awesome Breakfast, RM18.
The really yummy homemade hash brown. Yumzzzz...
Cappuccino, RM7.90.
Latte, RM7.90.
Initially, I was a little worry that they are only good at their coffee and their food might be sucky. But much to our surprise, both dishes we had were really good!
The Awesome Breakfast was indeed really awesome! Comes with a poached egg with Hollandaise sauce, a piece of beef bacon, a homemade hash brown and some spinach and mushrooms, the dish was truly satisfying! I especially love the homemade hash brown! It was so yummy I actually forgot that it was supposed to be a piece of junk (I mean, deep fried stuff)! Unlike the frozen hash brown, this one has the potato in strips and and it wasn't oily at all! :) Deardo's House Smoked Salmon Aglio Olio was not bad too, tasting pretty perfect and comes with some other ingredients such as olive and rocket greens. Really yummy!
Real quality food they offer that I really hope they will stay the same! 
As for the coffee, well for someone who is not yet a pro in coffee, I think the coffee here is really smooth and has this really nice aroma to it. Coffee lovers out these should really give their coffee a try! 
With 10% Service Charge, the total bill came up to RM61.40, which is actually quite reasonable too! I'm surely coming back for more quality food and great coffee!
