Cameron Highland is my most favorite place in the whole of Malaysia, only because it has chilling air, greeneries, and also the best place to enjoy fresh vegetables. Just additional info, any herbs that can be found in the Malaysia market, commonly planted in Cameron Highland. It also has a famous tea brand that can found in many local grocery stores in Malaysia, like BOH, Cameron Highland, and Bharat.
This post I want to share about the most famous cafe, the lord’s cafe in Tanah Rata, where it is conveniently can be found just opposite the bus station. If you see Mary Brown’s outlet, the shop just located on the second floor. If you are unsure about the location, you can ask around and mostly locals know where is the shop located. (If you find Starbucks, you can walk to the end of the right corner when facing the store).
On the outside, there is this big menu that lists all the food that the Lord’s Cafe serves. Bear in mind that this menu has been here for a long time, and now they did not serve any main dish. So this place is only for those who are looking for tea time or dessert. I just found out that they serve garlic bread as well.
Scone is the most famous dish from this cafe, many people are queueing up for this dessert, and if you happen to come to Cameron Highland in the holiday seasons, you can expect that the place is pack and you need to queue for a long time.
I like the way how they do the interior decoration; it feels like home and pretty simple. It also gives a feeling like home. The place encourages people to take home the books that they display in their racks. You also can trade your book or placing the book there for others to decide. There are some books that outstanding, ranging from novels to travel writing.
These are the cakes that I always order whenever I am visiting the shop, start with Scone. You must request this if you visit this place and it tastes way better to compare with some cafe that serves such delicacy. I had been to Boh tea, Bharat, and Cameron Highland scone, but this place still the best Scone that I had ever had. They use good quality of butter. You can also order a strawberry scone, but I prefer the normal Scone and then add strawberry jam. Just personal preference.
They will also serve other cakes, like lemon cheesecake, or strawberry cheesecake. It depends on availability. You can check with the waiters to find out what cakes they have on that day.
I rate The Lords Cafe worth two stars, as they do serve good quality food and generous serving. If you are polite with them, they will be happy to assist you in choosing food. Whenever I come to Cameron Highland, I have not ever skip once coming to this place. Yes, including a public holiday period.
