The word Le Pont means ‘the bridge’ in French and the owners of this café and bakery imagines the space to be a place where people could connect. Easily the most stunning café in the Old Klang Road vicinity, the French-style bakery and café takes up three stories. You start with the bakery on the first floor, then a beverage bar, and lastly a café.
Menu-wise, they offer plenty of contemporary European dishes such as pasta, risotto with tomato confit, and a selection of fancy sandwiches. Case in point: Our smoked salmon sandwich came with gold leaf. We were told that their bread and pastry chef used to work for Joël Robuchon and also for the three Michelin-starred restaurant, 8 ½ Otto e Mezzo Bombana in Hong Kong. There’s a wide selection of bread here, including several different types of focaccia, baguettes and croissants. Most of the pastries here are of the sweet kind (think doughnuts, red bean pastries and madeleines).
If you’re familiar with the Old Klang Road coffee scene then you would know 3quartercup café, previously situated nearby. 3quartercup has now relocated to the second floor of Le Pont, taking over the coffee bar and headed by David Leong of the Malaysia Specialty Coffee Association. 3quartercup also boasts its own brand of bottled cold brews.
The team is serious about design; the space is absolutely beautiful, with a wall of light bulbs, clean lines, and a spacious area on the ground floor that is made to look like a mini urban park with a lot of exposed concrete. Customers can hang out here while waiting for their seats to the café or beverage bar upstairs, eat their takeaways from the bakery, or just use this space to linger over a cuppa.
