Wondermilk is a whimsical, artsy little cafe in Damansara Uptown, Petaling Jaya, popular among the locals for its adorable cupcakes, light snacks, great coffee, and its own brand of flavoured milk (hence the name). Founded by a group of art enthusiasts, the cafe clearly shows off their background and talent. It is intricately decorated, with little trinkets and knick-knacks such as potted plants, mismatched furniture, scribbled blackboards and ceramic art animals. The overall vibe is warm and cosy, with indie bands playing in the background and friendly counter staff members greeting you as you walk in.
Dubbing themselves the emporium of super cupcakes, yummy food, great coffee, awesome goodies and not-so-serious art, guests flock to Wondermilk for their cute cupcakes, dubbed ‘Cuppacakes’. These cupcakes are baked fresh daily, and with catchy names such as John Lemon and Foxy Red Velvet, they will catch your fancy right from the display counter. Cuppacakes are priced RM4.50 per pop, and while the relatively high price might steer you off a bit, a bite of the cupcakes justifies it – flavours are intense, maybe better than homemade ones. Order a few or buy a box to take home, the cupcakes taste heavenly and are quite a sight, too.
Other items on the menu include comfort food such as sloppy joes (here called ‘sloppiest joe’) and smores, but try one of their sandwiches. Mr Beefsteak and Honey Mustard Chicken are some of our favourites, with cheese grilled to perfection and served with a side salad. Vegetarians are not left out; items such as Red Pesto Surprise pasta and Mr Egghead sandwich satisfy your hunger should you pay Wondermilk a visit. A kids menu is also available, and food servings come with a free toy and blackcurrant drink.
The slogan of the cafe is ‘drink more milk’, and their namesake is on the menu to advocate it. Wondermilk is basically fresh milk in a variety of flavours – for RM7 per cup, you can choose between vanilla, toffee, macadamia, banana, caramel, Irish cream or butterscotch, and have it either hot or cold. Coffees here are brewed using Italian blend espresso beans, and we recommend a cup to complement the sweetness of the cupcakes. Not a fan of coffee or milk? There are also teas, ‘wondercoolers’ (non-alcoholic carbonated ice soda mix) and ice-blended fruit smoothies, a treat for the health-conscious.
