The CMCR Club (RM38) is a beautiful stack of double smoked beef brisket, folded organic duck egg, cheddar, lettuce, tomato and house-made BBQ sauce on artisanal wholemeal sourdough toast, served with a side of herbed fries.

They also pride themselves for their selection of desserts such as Flourless Valrhona Chocolate Cake (RM17), Sweet Potato Carrot Cake (RM18) and their own signature take on KL Churros (RM23) with coconut flakes, gula melaka caramel, walnut crumble, chocolate sauce and vanilla ice cream.
