When I first heard of Cafe 5, I got attracted to its Chinese name - "5号咖啡。松饼屋" as the name has a very "Taiwanese" feel to it. I later on found out from my friend that Cafe 5 is the reincarnation of the waffle kiosk at Jaya One. Honestly, I really love their Belgian waffles, and was pretty sad when they closed down.

So, you could only imagine how happy I get when I found out about Cafe 5! Without further ado, let's take a look at Cafe 5!

Cafe 5 is located at Jalan Pudu, facing away from the hustle and bustle of the main road. 

Simple interior of black and white.

We managed to talk to the owner, Trent during our visit. We were told that traditionally, Belgian Liege waffles were made using brioche dough and pearl sugar. Unfortunately, this is not the case nowadays.

After extensive research and tons of trial & error, they are now ready to serve the public with authentic Belgian Liege waffles!

Yun Fatt (RM 15). Waffles generously drizzled with Belgian dark chocolate served with marshmallows and fresh strawberries. Chocolaty yet not too sweet, this will definitely be a favourite to many girls. 

If you love peanut butter and bananas like me, you'd enjoy PB Bunk (RM 15) as much as I did. Creamy peanut butter and fresh bananas sandwiched between waffles, this was a total yum!

If you go Cafe 5 with a group of friends, go ahead and have their Willy Wonka (RM 38) and have fun with your waffles - dip it or pair it with marshmallows and fruits!

Murakamu (RM 9) has always been a favourite of mine when Cafe 5 was still a kiosk at Jaya One. There's a nice smoky flavours to the waffles with flamed takoyaki sauce and Japanese mayonnaise, Japanese spices and bonito flakes.

Waffle & Salmon (RM 25). The combination of freshly-made waffles, smoked salmon, cucumber and dill cream cheese was uniquely appetizing.

Ice Cube Coffee (RM 13). Sadly I was on a coffee fast when visiting Cafe 5. So, I did not get to try their coffee, However, I was told that the coffee was really good. Personally, I like concept behind this drink, whereby one could "customize" his or her coffee by deciding the ratio of coffee and milk.

Flat White (RM 9).

I love milkshakes but most of the places don't produce good milkshakes. They are either too sweet or not rich enough. The Mango Milkshake (RM 15) at Cafe 5 has the perfect sweetness of the mango, and the richness of the milkshake came from their homemade ice cream. Heaven!!

Usually anything with Oreo in it would be off-the-chart sweet, but the Oreo Toffee Coffee (RM 15) was otherwise.

Ice cream (RM 7 for Single Scoop; RM 12 for Double Scoop) is and always will be my best friend!!! Apart from running Cafe 5, they supply homemade ice cream to various F&B businesses too. Can you guess what ice cream we had at Cafe 5? The answer is...... Egg Yolk & Curry Leaf! Yes!!! I love the bits & pieces of egg yolk mixed in the creamy ice cream, and the hint of heat from the curry leaf that came after every bite. I highly recommend this ice cream!!

Cafe 5 is definitely a highly recommended place for those you want to have good Belgian waffles and coffee. What more, this quiet cafe is a nice getaway at KL city centre.
