Damai Studio & Cafe, Jalan Damai KL - a Yoga Studio x Cafe x Event Space

Note: writing about my experience at the cafe, not the yoga studio!
Damai Studio & Cafe is nestled in a bungalow lot, along the residential area of Jalan Damai (hence the name!), which is just a stone throw away from the Jalan Tun Razak. You may be more familiar with RGB Cafe - which is located on the same row. 

I was stopped by a guard while navigating to Damai Studio & Cafe, as there was seemingly something (a party/gathering (?)) going on at the end of Jalan Damai which required drivers to make a three-point turn out of the road as it was blocked. The guard asked where I was headed and he told me that there are no cafse at the end of the road - only a "joget joget" studio and the only cafe on Jalan Damai is RGB. I became a little unsure myself but insisted that there is a cafe, and yes, let me assure you. there is a cafe within the "joget joget" studio.

Despite its close proximity to the busy Jalan Tun Razak, the surrounding of Damai Studio & Cafe was quaint & serene. Upon stepping into the compound, you can definitely feel as though you've been transported elsewhere, away from the hustle & bustle of the city, with the lush of different edibles & ornamental plants, trees & creepers surrounding you. 

However, do note that there is no canopy/shade for the outdoor seatings, hence it might not be too ideal to be sitting out in the sun in the afternoon.

First thing first - please take off your shoes when entering the indoor seating area. Yours truly did not realise this rule and walked in with her shoes. 

Their indoor seating area is bright and spacious, thanks to the clean white walls, high ceiling & ceiling-to-floor windows. The interior too is donned with plants and some bold splash of colours & prints here and there.

Most of the patrons here seemed to be those students of their yoga classes or regulars - everyone seemed to know each other and I felt like an outsider :p 

Food & Beverage

Food & Beverage at Damai Cafe is meat-free. Gluten-free & vegan food is also available. You may refer to Damai Cafe's full menu on their website
Americano RM8
I got this cup of Joe for only RM5, which was apparently a promo they had in the whole month of March. Didn't manage to try out their food though, simply because, well, I'm sort of a carnivore. 

If you're looking for a quiet cafe to unwind, this might be a place that you'd want to check out :) Or perhaps if you're looking to attend yoga classes around KL area, Damai Studio offers different yoga classes from Tuesdays-Sundays. According to the website, each class is priced at RM55/one class pass, and you may refer to their Instagram page for the schedule. 

This is definitely a place I wouldn't mind coming again to sip on some coffee while reading a book, or to catch up on some work, or simply to catch up with a friend if I'm nearby.
