After our sumptuous lunch at The Farm Foodcraft @ The Sphere, we segued into Sunbather Coffee, located on the upper ground floor.
Sunbather Coffee’s menu highlights a worthy list of Instagrammable dishes, from impressive pocket sandwiches, Japanese-inspired rice bowls, delectable cake rolls, comforting pastas, irresistible house-made ice-creams, beautiful art-topped latte, specialty drinks and much more.
Specializing in Western-influenced Japanese cuisine and third wave coffee, Sunbather Coffee opened its doors at The Sphere in December 2018. The cafe was packed to the brim with mostly youths when we were there on a Sunday. We only ordered desserts, coffee and fancy beverages for the girls as we’d just had a heavy lunch but the pretty pocket sandwiches (which I initially thought were cakes) made me drool! The pocket sandwiches in dark rye bread will be a must-order item the next time we patronize the cafe.

My favorite Sunbather temptation is the Affogato with Madagascar vanilla ice-cream tinged with blue pea flower.
The iced matcha latte with Hojicha Kanten is not overly sweet and with just the right ratio of milk to matcha which has a strong aroma of premium green tea. I loved it! Hubs ordered Osmanthus latte which has a pleasant and mild sweetness of Osmanthus in each sip.
Sunbather’s Black Forest Roll Cake – very rich and chocolaty.
The Raindrop Anmitsu is of course for our Gen Z girls – fanciful, colorful and replete of their favorite chewies – jelly, mochi, red bean and watermelon balls. I find it a tad sweet for my palate though. Two of the mochi balls were not thoroughly cooked and the cafe supervisor gave us a RM1.80 discount off the bill.
There’s still so much more exciting items to try at Sunbather, sufficient for potentially half a dozen repeat visits and I am sure the girls will be more pleased than I am 😋
Sunbather is not only for the younger Generation. Even older people like myself get perky and happy at the sight of their colorful playful drinks, impressive Yoshoku (Western-influenced Japanese food) meals and desserts with unique combinations.
