Departure Lounge, Damansara Uptown

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And also my favourite meal of the day, especially on a weekend where I get to go cafe hopping with my beloved ones hehe :)

Last weekend, I finally get to try out one of PJ's longest standing cafe that specialises in All-Day Breakfast: Departure Lounge
Departure Lounge, as it's name suggested, is a Cafe that has a unique theme of travel library/airport lounge/airplane. They begin boarding from 8am to 10pm daily. And yes, you still get to have your bacon and eggs even at night!
The interior of Departure Lounge has a simple & clean layout. Though it gets pretty noisy and crowded during peak over so drop by earlier to beat the crowd! There's even an El Fresco area for those who would like a dose of Vitamin D while dining in :)

After boarding into the cafe, proceed to the counter to check in & make your order :) Good news, as Departure Lounge does not tax their passengers :D
Departure Lounge is also the perfect place for one to plan their road trips/travelling plans over coffee, with so many useful resources around :)
Or if you can't decide where to go next for your holiday, just browse through Departure Lounge's beautiful travel photos mosaic :)
The menu, with the usual breakky suspects Omelette, Eggs Benedicts, Pancakes and Sandwiches dominating the menu. Not really in the mood for eggs? Don't fret, cause Departure Lounge also serve pastas and also the usual English mains like Fish & Chips & Grilled Chicken :)
What I love most about Departure Lounge is their Do It My Way Breakfast Platter. Patrons are free to pick and choose food that fancies them on their breakfast platter and even control the portion!

You can customize your breakfast platter by choosing from 3 Items (RM9.90), 5 Items (RM14.90) or 7 Items (RM16.90) listed at the list :) Each set comes with 2 slices of white or wholemeal bread
Latte FOC
Received a Free Coffee Voucher last year from CAFFA so hehe :) 
Departure Lounge uses 5 Senses Coffee Beans that originated from Australia! 
Do It My Way Breakfast 7 Items RM16.90
Guan Ren & I went for the scrambled eggs (2 eggs), grilled bananas, chicken sausages, baked beans, beef bacon, turkey ham and sauteed (canned) mushroom.

What I love: the Scrambled Eggs. Well executed, soft and fluffy! The sweet Grilled Bananas were slightly charred to give it a smokey taste, which left a wonderful after taste at my taste buds.

The Turkey Ham, Beef Bacon, Chicken Sausages and Baked Beans were average, nothing much to shout about.

Wasn't really pleased that the mushroom used was canned mushrooms (you'll have to top up RM1.50 to upgrade your mushrooms to button mushrooms). Thought that it tasted a little out of place.
Salmon Scrambler RM12.90
Scrambled eggs with salmon and shredded cucumber served on a rye bread with a side of salad with vinaigrette dressing.

OKAY we didn't expect the Salmon Scrambler to come with SO MUCH CUCUMBER. (Note: Cucumber is my no1 enemy). So we painstakingly removed the shredded cucumber one by one, before devouring our meal T.T

The effort was worth it- the Salmon Scrambler (without the shredded cucumber) was marvelous! Fluffy eggs rich with buttery fragrant, embedded with little chunks of savoury, mouth-watering smoked salmon, paired up with the chewy rye bread...mhmmmmm. Plain satisfactory.
