As the coffee culture grows in Malaysia, more cafes (and coffee drinkers) become part of the artisanal coffee movement where each detail of the coffee journey – crème, art, froth and aroma – matters.
In Solaris Mont Kiara, LewisGene is said to serve good coffee and café food in a laid-back setting. During my visit, the place was crowded; both inside and the balcony. If you’re looking for a quiet place to chill, you might be disappointed.
Service can get a bit disjointed when it’s a full house – I waited 30 minutes for my coffee. The flat white (RM8.90) and cappuccino (RM9.90) were served a tad hot for comfortable drinking. We waited another 5 minutes or so to allow the temperature to reduce.
Tastewise, the coffees were above average. Nothing mind-blowing but I do like the coffee art here. I wouldn’t mind giving this place another go – for their breakfast and specialty coffees. We’ll see.

Verdict: Decent coffee but too crowded for comfort during peak hours.
