We were looking for a new place to try, and Joyce suggested Butter + Beans at Seventeen.
Butter + Beans is located at Happy Mansion in Seksyen 17, the same row where “6 To 10” used to be. If you’re too young to know where “6 To 10” used to be, never mind…
The cafe is small and has limited seats. Luckily the coffee and pastries make up for the lack of space.
The place smells absolutely gorgeous – freshly baked goods and aromatic coffee, mmmm… Seems like they only do bread, pastries, pies and light sandwiches for now. And of course, many a beautiful cuppa.
We got there from Yut Kee so only shared a crusty croissant, rhubarb tart and had a coffee each.
The tart was a bit sweet for my liking. Croissant? Plain, buttery and delicious.
It’s the sort of place that would attract the early customers of Artisan, Antipodean etc. The modern, creative, crazy smart, artsy type. Fuad Alhabshi comes to mind.
Another highlight – Malaysia’s favourite street artist Ernest Zacharevic left his mark here.
