This weekend we got back on track with the challenge I set myself months ago and continued trying out child-friendly cafes! ‘For Goodness Cakes’ is a lovely little place in Sri Hartamas. A little bit hidden down a one-way street (Jalan 27/70a, Desa Sri Hartamas) this isn’t necessarily somewhere you’d just happen across but I do suggest popping in.
On arriving we received one of the warmest welcomes by Sheila, one of the owners, who treated us like old friends even though we’d never met.
The cafe prides itself on its home-made cooking and serves everything from all day breakfasts to soups, sandwiches, burgers, pasta dishes and some Asian favourites. Everything is made fresh on the premises and we were lucky that a batch of sausage rolls had just come out of the oven as well as a lovely banana cake that was still warm as we all tucked in!
If you’re not stopping for a big meal, they have fresh juices and a wide selection of teas/coffees and needless to say they offer a large range of sweet treats; from cupcakes and scones, to gluten-free brownies and cookies.
A big part of trying out this cafe came down to the fact that they have a play corner in the cafe itself. This was equipped with a little kitchen, soft toys, robots, cars and a very well-stacked bookcase which we made full use of with a couple of stories while waiting for our order.
Good food, extremely pleasant staff, and a play area so we were already very happy….. But then came the personalised ‘crêpe’ order for my son who was stunned when he saw his name written on his plate in raspberry coulis!! What a touch!
Ten out of ten for making our visit very memorable! Safe to say, we will be back when in the area! Thank you, S x
