T Cafe, Cameron Highlands

T Cafe is a quaint little cafe located above the MarryBrown fast food restaurant in Tanah Rata. I tried their scones a few years back and found them quite good. Went there on a Sunday, only to find them closed. Popped by the next day, just before heading back to KL. The café has a very homely feel, with postcards and photos from their customers hanging on the wall.I ordered their scones and a cup of tea. I usually have my scones with coffee, but since we were in Cameron, I decided to order tea (not in picture). Turns out the tea was just “boh” tea. A hot cup of freshly brewed coffee would have been better.A short while later, the freshly baked scones with homemade strawberry jam, butter and cream were placed on our table. They were as good as I remembered – lovely buttery flavour and soft, crumbly texture. If only they had clotted cream; that would have been bliss.I decided to order their wat tan hor (RM4.90) just to try. When it came, it didn’t look anything like wat tan hor. More like a glob of mess. Tastewise, there was no wok hei and the gravy was no where close to a wat tan hor gravy. Don’t bother with this.They also have apple pies, cakes and crepes reputed to be pretty good, but I didn’t try any. Maybe next time!

Ambiance: 6.5/10
Price: 7/10
Food: Scones – 7.5/10, Wat Tan Hor – 4/10 (halal)
Verdict: If you’re in Tanah Rata, give their homemade scones a try.

    Tummythoz – Yup, their local dishes were ‘blah’. From your post, their breakfast items look quite decent.

    joe – Ahh…the bukit tunku one, heard about that. Maybe it’s time I gave it a try. 😉

    SimpleGirl – Ya…it’s quite famous hor? I saw quite a few reviews pasted on the wall.

    Oh dear, that wat tan hor really does look like a huge lumpy mess! I do like the feel of the cafe though… just for beverages and scones then!

    the mains are NOT nice at all.
    only the scones, and the desserts are OK.
