Home Food ReviewsCuisineCoffee LewisGene, Solaris Mont Kiara

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.


Pretty good coffee art

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.


Flat White



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.

Thanks for the review – 30 minutes seems like a long time to wait for a coffee, so I think I might skip this place!

Wow, the design on the Cappuccino is unique.
