Review of Gato:/ Gateau at Bangsar South

The brightly lit Gato:/Gateau caught my eye because of the many bouquets of flowers displayed inside and outside the shop. Why? Because they opened last Saturday (not because they have a love for flowers). Opened by a husband and wife team, we foresee this being popular with the tea-time and after dinner crowd.


The vintage radio in the corner actually works


The decoration is a mix of East and West with lots of pastel colours and whimsy. Really liked the use of suitcases as a table. The radio was playing a mixture of Christmas tunes – we heard Mariah Carey and Christina Aguilera.


The food is pretty reasonable and some may say cheaper than the usual cafes popping up. For a cube (really) of cake, it’s RM8. The cheesecake with tomato jam and a cheese wafer was delicious – I’ve never tried tomato jam before but I am now a fan. The cheese part of the cheesecake was soft and smooth – yummy. Just wish it was a little bigger…


The cheese wafer was full of flavour

The ‘Not Pavlova’ cake (RM8) has a hazelnut base meringue, lemon curd  and kiwi slices on top. Interesting.

If you buy two cakes you get one hot drink free so I chose the chai latte (RM11). It was a pleasant surprise to taste real chai and to see a strainer (so you can separate the spices/chai from the tea). Warm and comforting after a long day.

The Super Fruit Iced Tea (RM10) was light on the palatte and came with two slices of lime inside. Perfect in this humid weather.

The Fruit cooler (RM12) is made of watermelon, orange and mint (I think it was mint).

Location: Unit 1-8, No.7, Jalan Kerinchi, Nexus, Level 1, Bangsar South

Opening hours: 10am – 10 pm every day
