Feeling stuffed after our brunch at Mr & Ms Café, but not entirely satisfied just yet, we drove around the Oasis, in search of a coffee place.
It was nice, zig-zagging in an air-conditioned car, while keeping note of the restaurants that interest me along the way. Somehow or rather, the place reminded me of Plaza Damas.
Epiphany Coffee & Tobacco
We passed a couple of coffee houses before settling for Epiphany, simply because we noticed a crowd from the door. Hence, the popular saying – judging a book by its cover – we assumed the coffee was good. Was it really though?
Epiphany Coffee & Tabacco uses Indonesian coffee beans for their coffee, and is roasted using their specialty coffee roaster, The Flightless Mule. Also popular for being a tobacconist, they offer a wide range of Roll-Your-Own (RYO) tobacco products, cigars, snus and other tobacco accessories.
I was, obviously, there for their coffee and cakes only.
Hot Chocolate. Rm10.
I almost missed the absent chocolate dustings on top. That said, the hot chocolate was heart-warming and pretty good.
My friend taught me something new that day. Though I’m quite sceptical of its theories.
She said – as long as the latte art or foam do not sink to the bottom of the cup while being drank, meant that it was a skilfully made cuppa. If it sinks, send it back!
On a side note, all coffees served here are double shots – that’s great, but in this case, I prefer a less-bodied coffee, personal preference no less.
Peanut Butter Cake. Rm9.
I was craving for peanut butter that day – and tadah, I found peanut butter cake!
It was like having peanut butter, but not as peanut butterish, and more buttery – if you get what I mean. I didn’t quite fancy the light chocolate sponge cake though.

Overall Rating: 5/10. Smokers, especially cigar lovers, you’re in for a treat. They have a cigar room, equipped with a collection of cigars, where you can leisurely enjoy puffing one, while having a cuppa. Being a non-smoker myself, I wasn’t particularly fond of the air-filled smoke that ensued from the alfresco area. Tip: Pick a seat far away from the entrance!
