There isn't much lifestyle cafe in Ipoh, at least not really good one. Surprisingly the previous trip that I went back to Ipoh, my friend brought me to this new place. I'm not sure how new it is but I think it's quite new considering that it seems like not many who know about it.
I was a little skeptical due to it's location because it is located at the shop row where my former college is. It's not exactly a busy location especially on the weekend, in fact it used to be really quiet. It's located at Jalan Raja Permaisuri Bainun; formerly known as Jalan Kampar at the shop row opposite the AMC High School.
We went there on a Sunday and I did not expect it to be so fully packed at 3pm. Most seats are taken with customers of all ages. I think it's gonna get really popular soon since this is really a good place. I'm sorry I didn't get to take much pictures around the place because I'm uncomfortable with too many people there.
That's basically how it looks like from the picture above with a few others quirky decorations here and there. The menu is written on the blackboard behind the counter while cakes and pastry are displayed at the counter. From what I remember, they only offer some sandwiches or burgers, cakes and some pastries. I think their menu changes everyday.
We ordered two slices of cakes to try and normally I would not expect the food to taste good at such kind of cafe. Yet, surprisingly (I think there's a lot of surprising event in this post) the cakes taste good. Especially the crepe cake. I think it's called the signature crepe cake or something and it has nuts inside. I'm normally not a fan of nuts and also crepe cake but this really taste good. I'll put it on the must-try list for everyone of you.
We have only stayed there for a short while as the shop is too packed and it was a little difficult for us to talk. I would like it better if the crowd ain't that huge and loud but can't deny that it's a nice place to drop by and hang out. My post ain't doing them justice because I did not get pictures of the whole ambience of the shop, but trust my words, it's a nice place especially for one that is located in Ipoh.
Also, I couldn't find much information regarding JJ Lifestyle Cafe from the internet. They did not have any website nor Facebook page. Here is all the information that I can find, do drop by if anyone of you are from Ipoh or going on a trip there.
