Levain Boulangerie Pattiserie

Finally my VIVA is done. Now the corrections need to be done. After sending it for hard-binding, it will be over (hopefully). Anyway, I have been meaning to post about this quaint bakery I went some time ago but I was too busy with my research project. Also, I have decided to finally limit each post to about 13 – 15 photos from now onwards. I will post all photos on my facebook instead.

Levain is located in Imbi, KL. It is one of those huge bungalows-turned-restaurants that are abundant in that area.

You won’t miss it due to its cute architecture. Looks like those winter cottages. But in case you do, it is next to Fukuya Japanese Restaurant.

The outside exterior exudes an European cafe feel, no? | Levain has two floors so it can accommodate quite a number of customers at one time, which is good, considering the fact that day I decided to visit Levain was a public holiday and boy, it was seriously people mountain, people sea that day.

03

I went with my Mom and aunt, because we were all small-eaters. Nothing like bread and soup for a light lunch.

There were a variety of breads, muffins, sandwiches, and pastries to choose from. Due to high demand from overload of customers that day, some trays were empty (sadly).

06

This is just one of the dishes we had. I personally like the egg-ham bread (not shown in pic) and the pumpkin cream soup is also not bad.

07    Menu of the day – Love the old-fashioned black chalkboard style. P.S. Btw, I went there for a second time already and the pasta is not bad ;)

05

At the entrance, you will notice 2 glass cabinets filled with antique coffee-making equipments. Love~!. Kinda looks like a museum, no? I always love vintage and nostalgia. I think it was a really wonderful “exhibition”. Lol.

Another thing I love about Levain (besides food, interior and exterior design and the antiques) is the array of paintings decorated all over the place. I simply love the art displayed here because they oil-based paintings of beautiful sceneries. These two were my favourites – one of French cafes and one of all kinds of sinfully delicious carbs. LOL;D

This painting was my favourite, and still is =)

Yup, had to park near people's houses when I go. I try to go there for dinner, less people compared to lunch but some of the breads are not as fresh anymore though
