Tappers @ Jaya One PJ



After reading Jason's (Ipoh Mali Talak Sombong) blog about Tappers and after a few failed attempts to have breakfast here, I finally succeeded one Saturday morning :) I have read several magazines which introduce places to eat in Jaya One PJ and I had to say, those pictures were really nice.

So when I stepped my feet into the cafe, "Cheh! Like that only ah?" rather than disappointment got the better of me. The whole setting was rather simple and divided into 2 sections - smoking & non-smoking area. It is air conditioned inside and therefore I sat inside (my 3 months old baby could not take the heat)

Semi-open kitchen concept but ventilation was good so it was not smoky inside.

Look!!! Free Wi-fi & even 10% off for students... hmmm! I still keep my student card (*evil grin). Since Jaya One is very close to UTAR and UM... a lot of students live in this area. Not forget to mention office workers who flock this place during lunch time.

I had the English Breakfast set which comprised of 2 eggs, 2 sausages (actually one but I substituted the beef bacon with extra sausage instead), 2 pcs of pancakes (with honey). Complimentary iced cham was ordered and it only cost me RM7.90 for the whole set (wait! was it RM8.90??)...

Jenn had the American Breakfast set which was quite similar to mine except for the baked beans in the place of pancakes. Hot cham for her...

Leo's verdict - probably one of the cheapest places to eat in Jaya One. No govt tax nor service charge (15% saved!!). But don't expect top-notch breakfast ingredients OK??? Overall the food and drink were good and value for money too... Tappers Cafe is actually similar to those kopitiams that were sprouting all over Klang Valley. Beside breakfast set, they also serve local dishes and a few Hainanese food (especially the chicken chop).

OK peeps... I'm off to KL soon... have a nice weekend everyone!

Not a big fan of western breakfast, hehe! Always think that sausage + eggs can easily fry at home, lol!

From the looks of it, I think Departure Lounge is better in terms of ambiance...don't you think?

RM7.90 for a set in Jaya One?? That IS a steal! Agree with Bangsar Babe... Dept Lounge is prob a notch pricier but wayyy nicer for your wkend breakfast feast!
