We all would love eating outdoor if it was not for the humid weather of Malaysia. Therefore, Botanica+Co aspires to capture the feeling of eating outdoor amidst lush greenery inside a greenhouse-themed interior. Furthermore, their unpretentious of hearty food such as their Green Goddess was so fantastic it may as well make meat eaters out there convert.

Imagine a medley of broccoli, peas, asparagus, kale and sugar snaps tied together in cheesy goodness and smoky pesto. To tone down the grease of the cheese, order their home-made kaffir lime and lemongrass cooler which is light and refreshing. By all means, the plenty of greens in the menus and ambiance provides a secret sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of city life.

The earth laughs in flowers and cakes. Seeing that, expect yourself to be surrounded by rainbows of enchanting natural and artificial blooms in the soothing space with blissful vibes. The quaint floral embellishments attract the honey bees, thus the Chamomile Honey Cake that is too cute to be true. Indeed, the playful creation combines moist chamomile tea moist cake with white chocolate honeycomb and a syringe of chamomile infused honey for an extra boost of sweetness.

Although it may sound very sweet, it is surprisingly just right. On the other hand, their floral and fruity Ispahan portrays elegance from the delicate balance of rose, raspberry, and lychee.  In any case, Happ Café allows us to walk through the flower path in life.

The cafe tells a story of a boy meets girl – a wanderlust Malaysian young lady and a charming English man. They fell in love and live happily ever after in Malaysia. Peter and Mawar warmly invite you to indulge in a culinary escapade in their quirky artistic nest. You can feel the love in every corner and food, including in their interpretation of ‘pisang goreng cheese.” Deep fried crispy Cavendish bananas topped with heaps of grated cheddar cheese with a scoop of classic vanilla ice cream. Accompanied by a glass of old school Bandung sirap with Cincau bits, it’s as classic as it can get. How can you resist the temptation to fall in love with the charm of the café?
