Note: Double A is now closed
If you’re in the quiet side of Ara Damansara (Pacific Place) and need a cake fix, drop by Double A, owned by husband and wife team Alia and Aiman. Besides serving customers good slices of cake, the duo aims to showcase the best bakers in KL so they will be sourcing cakes and other sweet treats from bakers around Klang Valley. For now, they have goods from That Last Slice, Gateauxlicious, Gula Bakery, Cake Jalan Tiung and Sugar Rush.
According to Alia, they plan to have as many as ten different bakers in the coming months with each baker showcasing only one product. If you really need to have something savoury before cake, the pesto cheese melt is the only dish you can order. And don't expect the food menu to expand either, as Alia points out that they aim to be solely a dessert café. For drinks, they have roped in Johorean coffee experts Monsta Café with whom they consult about coffee, including training Double A’s baristas.
Even with top-notch interior (especially the really pretty black and white tiles), Double A is surprisingly down to earth – as long as you like cake, you're welcomed. The crowd here is a mixed one: on our visit, we spotted aunties catching up, some freelancers discussing work and a solo diner reading a book with a slice of mango cheesecake.
