Green Tomato Café, a hidden gem on Jalan Ampang

If one was looking for a change from hipster cafés and the laptop-tapping young professionals or looking to escape the racket that lunching children create, one should perhaps head over to Green Tomato Café, that is hidden behind the busy Jalan Ampang, off Persiaran Ritchie.

The open-air setting is something rare in KL, with enough space for kicking a ball around while waiting for the food making it one of the most child-friendly cafés around. Ample parking right next door is another bonus!

Green Tomato Café and myBatik workshop

The café shares the premises with Yayasan Seni Gallery and myBatik workshop which is open for budding artists, and a small batik shop. This would also be a great place to bring visitors to try out batik painting or have some me-time over a cuppa while the kids paint.

Coffee is excellent and service is friendly. The food, although not very exciting (think burgers, sandwiches, cooked breakfast and a few pastas), is hearty and home-cooked. The children enjoyed their kids’ set of fish & chips, babyccino and a muffin. We kept quiet about the ice lolly that would have been part of the set seeing that they could barely walk out after polishing their plates.

We come here when we are looking for a quick and easy meal for the kids in this area and nice coffee for the adults. We appreciate the greenery and absolute lack of that ear-breaking weekend brunch noise of the trendy cafés in town – it’s like a secret garden a stone’s throw away from the city.
