Here's a place with a particularly arresting name. Taking over the space that was formerly Flat White, Morningwood looks like your usual SS15 café. Co-founder Jared Lee explains that the wood features of the café was actually the inspiration for the name. Being the jokesters that they are, the name stuck. The space is quite small but that’s no deterrent for students around the area to take up the tables with their laptops. Come weekends, a different crowd flocks in – families.

Two of the three partners of the café are Subang boys and they've decided on the area presumably for nostalgic reasons. One of them used to work in a café in Tokyo and was impressed by the café culture there. He noticed that the cafés he went to are very quiet as compared to the ones here in KL. ‘The only sound you could hear is water or coffee pouring.’ That may be a little hard to pull off especially in SS15, but here at Morningwood, you can sit at the smoking section for a little nice and quiet.

If you feel like having breakfast from a faraway land – like Tunisia, for example – you can. Their breakfast menu is inspired by dishes around the world so you can go Norwegian, American, Tunisian, European, Mediterranean or Atlantic. Most of the breakfast items are variations of eggs, bread and vegetables. Still in their trial and testing stages, some of the items on the menu will be removed, but not the Nero di Seppia, a pasta dish with squid ink sauce and sautéd squid with sliced garlic and tomato. Portions are also fit for sharing.

They source their beans from Seraph Awaken, a little coffee stall that operates in Klang from the back of a Kancil. The cakes on the other hand come in choices of red velvet, chocolate and peanut butter as well as a variety of crêpe cakes, depending on what’s available from their suppliers, Little Tee Cakes and Vanilla Cakes.
