    A unique restaurant hidden at the all time jam area- Damansara Utama but yet popular for it's food and concept.

    The eestaurant offers a unique concept: quaint, warm old-school-classic-meets-contemporary space. The mismatching of the wooden tables,chairs and vintage furnitures with not overly decorated cafe creates a homey old style ambience. And the menu is presented in the "Peter & Jane" story book.
