On the day we went to Presto at Citta Mall, we actually wanted to have our breakfast at Dr.Cafe. But after looking at their limited selection of food (mostly sandwich and cakes) we decided to head to Figaro Coffee Company instead – which happens to be just next door.
Figaro actually hails from Philippines, where it is considered one of the most successful chain of Filipino coffee shops. In fact, from what I read they are established even earlier than Starbucks in Philippines.
There are plenty of coffees to choose from here – taste wise OK but will hardly please the aficionados. We had the Cappuccino (RM12.90) and Butterscotch Vanilla Latte (RM12.90)
The Egg on Toast @ RM11.90 looks kind of pathetic but strangely satisfying, maybe because we were too hungry.
Big Breakfast @ RM14.90 – big brother of the Egg on Toast with additional ham, sausage and hash brown.
Free board games available here, good for gathering I suppose.
Coupled with a serving of mushroom soup, this simple looking breakfast actually set us back by RM70 plus. As far as affordability is concerned, Figaro is definitely not an everyday place to have breakfast and coffee. Like many other major coffee chains, you are pretty much paying for the environment and brand rather than the food.
