Unless you searched for it online, or heard it through referrals, not many people would realise Pennyroyal’s existence because of its location. The coffee house is based on a narrow alleyway in between two main streets of Jalan Marina Indah Raya and Town House Cordoba. However, you can only enter through Jalan Marina Indah Raya and you just have to squeeze through your way in until you find the cafe. I like the cafe because other than the fact that they serve marvellous coffees; it is quiet, a place where I can get my work done. Office workers love coming by to bring back cups to the office, while customers like myself love sitting down while enjoying a good cup.
Owner Max and Cynthia, whom are Canadian and a local, own the coffee house. They also have a white furry dog, usually the star of the place. It always gets the attention of all customers, and we can’t help but to go.. aww! I have been here thrice and what I have realised was that the dog was always there accompanying the owners.
All coffees were made using the artisan La Marzocco, a powerful Italian breed of coffee machines.
Cream Cheese Brownie + Flat White
The Cream Cheese Brownie was cheesier than expected, which was a good thing really. I enjoyed the sweetness and a hints of dark nodes off the brownie in combination with the subtle salty taste of the cheese.
The place is quirky and being in it feels like sitting at the cosy corner of a home.
Pennyroyal’s symbol is the extreme radical element of aristocracy; a shield and crowned thorns are absolute manifestation of royalty. Sorry folks, I just love anything medieval, but if I am not convincing enough on this matter of symbolism, I can still argue on the parts where they have excellent quality of beans, strong blast of AC, and fast wired internet. Truly, this place is one of the frontrunners when it comes to delivering the whole package of what a proper coffee place should be.
