Roast Factor Glee , The Club Bandar Utama

[Non-Halal]

With the cafe craze hitting the shores of Klang Valley hard, it is not surprising to find a coffee shop packed to the brim on a weekend, which can be quite frustrating at times when Guan Ren & I wanted to just sit back, relax, and enjoy the laid-back coffee shop ambiance.


Guan Ren drove me to 1 Utama to pick up my One Card from Dave's some time ago. We wanted to visit a cafe at TTDI to study for our upcoming finals but scraped off that idea, as foursquare gave us the "trending" warning, indicating that we might meet a bunch of loud, boisterous crowd. 

And lightbulb moment! This place which I found by randomly scrolling through Instagram suddenly crossed my mind, and we decided to check it out :) 

It was a little tricky, locating this place. This place is located more towards Kota Damansara. The road heading to this place was bumpy due to the ongoing MRT construction. 
The drive was worth it. We knew that it was the perfect place for us to study as we stepped into Roast Factor Glee.

This cafe that has a minimalist yet chic look, was pretty quaint and peaceful. Almost each table has a black lamp hanging above it, giving sufficient lighting for one to read a book, or take a decent photo. Soft music playing in the background gives the place a calming and soothing vibe.

The patrons occupying the table next to us, was also busy burying their head under their books & laptop. Oh joy, companion! :P Plug points were also found in almost every corner of this cafe- a delight to people who always forget to charge their laptop like me.

The wonderful display of cakes, pastries & cookies at Roast Factor Glee. Was so tempted to get them all but my tummy wouldn't allow it. All baked goods are baked in-house to ensure freshness. 
The menu- scribbled on brown paper, giving it a rustic look.
All-Day breakfast is served at Roast Factor Glee- a delight for brunch lovers out there. Notice how the word "bacon" keep appearing in the menu :) 

Cafe Latte RM10
The beans are roasted in-house at Roast Factor Glee. 
Mom's Pancake RM10
3 mini pancakes topped with bacon bits, drizzled with honey and served with a side of home made caramel apple. rosemary. ginger jam
A perfect marriage between sweet and savoury. This dish was the bomb! The fluffy pancakes goes really well with the sweet honey and savoury bacon bits. However, I find the portion a little too small. One can easily finish this dish in a bite or two :( 
Brioche RM5.50
Homemade Brioche served with butter and homemade marmalade
What I love the most about Roast Factor Glee is, everything is made in-house. Fresh. Delightful. The brioche was warm when it was served to us, and oh, so fluffy and rich with buttery aroma! 

And again, my only qualm is the portion, which was a wee bit small for us. 

Friendly owner, delightful baked goods, and a charming interior- Roast Factor Glee would top the list of my favourite cafe.
