A café from Indonesian-based coffee company Degayo, The Bean Belt is one of the better cafés in the city centre. For one, they’re in charge of every process in their coffee trade: Coffee is harvested from their own highland farms in Indonesia and they have their own roastery. On our visit, we had their house blend, which mixes beans from Aceh and Bandung, and we loved it – it was well-rounded and smooth, with a bright fruity finish.
For food, the selection isn’t huge but you can expect sandwiches, salads (think wholesome options such as cauliflower rice, quinoa and more), cakes and pastries. There are also brunch offerings, namely pastas, wraps and fry-ups. The breakfast sets (7.30-11am) are a good deal; starting from only RM9, each set comes with a drink.
The café itself is bright, airy and calm, and we particularly like that it faces a courtyard – the open space is a nice respite from the crowded city centre.
