Breakfast @ Ferringhi Coffee Garden

Dragged this post for quite some times and finally I post it up today, there are few posts pending to up also, I wish I have more time to settle them all. Friend was back in the island and we planned for a meet up, I was the one who need to plan the activities for that day. Breakfast should come first before others, that's why I looked for something nice and special; everyone in the island should have tried the classic breakfast at Toh Soon Cafe, so I thought to have western style breakfast, something heavier, and let's call it as brunch.
Whenever I'm with casual dress code, I like to soak myself under the sun, walk along the street and get sweaty at the end, sunny girl I am. Laugh. The garden view is part of the restaurant (or cafe), garden is a big hint for you, do you know where is the place we dine?
Nah, it's not Ferringhi Garden (click here to read the post) but Ferringhi Coffee Garden, same owner they have. We met some problem on finding the restaurant yet they were so nice to direct us when I called them; it's not the same entry with Ferringhi Garden, but you can look for the entry along the main road, parking would be a problem I think.
You can choose either indoor or outdoor, I chose the latter, it is great to enjoy our leisurely breakfast with garden and plants surrounding us, don't you think so? At least I think so. Staffs over there are very friendly, don't hesitate to ask help from them if you have one, they are ready to help you. One of them even showed magic tricks to us!
They put a lot of effort to maintain the plants and flowers there, I can peep the Ferringhi Garden which located right next to here, closed for the morning of course. Jazz music was played when we were there, really enjoy the ambiance and it's quite comfy. You can spend your whole morning or noon time without realizing the time flies that fast, we experienced that. Haha!
This is where our great coffee come from. A random shot while waiting for our food.
Cappuccino . RM8.80
This drink is come together with a piece of sweet bite, to kill the bitter taste of the drink; I requested sugar from them and they gave me brown sugar, me love! Love the pattern foam they made on the drink, it's a cat or sea lion, ain't sure about this; it's too beautiful to drink, ended up I left there for more than half hour only drink it, not that warm when I had it, exactly my taste.
Freshly Baked Scones . RM12.80
You need to wait for 30-45 minutes to get this served, because they only baked the scones once they get the order, so just leave it if you don't have enough time to wait. Scones come with whipped cream (which I first thought vanilla ice cream, LOL) and strawberry jam, the scones were still 'smoked' when we want to eat them. I'm not really enjoy the scone because it's too greasy for me, a few bites already made me full, but I try to finish my portion; no more scones for the rest of my lifetime, I swear. But for the person who like scones, you guys should really try it, very fresh and highly recommended by the chef.
Burger . RM21.80
On the menu, there are two choices for the 200 grams patties, either Australian Beef or Free Range Chicken, I seldom have beef, so we chose chicken patty. A few minutes after we placed the order, they came to us and we told that chicken was no more available, they recommended us to try their marinated fish burger, I forgot the name, but the fish patty is mixed with minced vegetables and prawns. I'll try not to order burger if I have a choice as the way I eat will be quite ugly I guess, but luckily we ordered this, this is really nice and I still can imagine the taste when I writing this post. The burger is stuffed together with egg, Mozzarella cheese and vegetables, cracker chips are accompanied along. Order this when you are here, if not you will be very very regret on this. 

I think we spent a few hours there, played some magic tricks with the staff there, I walked around the restaurant and people over there greeted me like I were the VIP, hehe. I want to have another drop to try their Egg Benedict, didn't really eat this before. Who's on? XD
