Hidden inside the hustle bustle Kota Damansara, there lies a beautiful Bakery Cafe - Boujour Garden with a French concept. You gotta drive your way around the Kota Damansara and beat the crazy traffic in that area to get to this! Don't worry though, parking is plenty - you gotta pay for it.
The area of the cafe is huge, with an open air concept and plenty of plants around to make up for its French Garden concept. There are plenty of places so you don't have to worry about not having enough seats. However, the place is surprisingly quiet. I went there during a weekend and there weren't many people.
This open air concept is wonderful for the natural lighting but it's somehow not practical in our country. Seriously, architects really need to re-tune their mindsets when designing an open-air concept especially in tropical countries. Sure, we get lotsa natural sunlight, making the entire place very beautiful.... They seem to forget the fact that our WEATHER IS HOT. So yes, honestly, as much as I love the setting, I will never opt to sit outside due to the warm weather, especially the temperature can fluctuate any time. I won't be able to enjoy my food while sweating like crazy. No thanks!
The counter is also situated right outside, with all the menu listed on the board.
There're lotsa PRETTY CAKES! I didn't not try them though. I could warn you first, they are pricey for a tiny piece. I will definitely come back here to chill and try out one of them in the future.
Back to the open-air concept... FORTUNATELY, they have a small area for air conditioned seating. This is where you could see most patrons sitting here, sipping their hot teas. I can't blame them, we are living in Malaysia.
The place is clean and well-kept. I quite like how they make the trees part of the buildings, very garden-like indeed.
Beside the air-conditioned seating area, the bread area is just there where you could just walk over and select your breads comfortably. You will be spoilt by so many choices and beautifully decorated breads that you won't know which one to pick. And oh, the smell of the freshly-baked breads..... Yum! So tempting!
Again, this is a premium bakery, be prepared to splurge!
LOVE SODA RM12
I was first intrigued by the photos in the menu as this drink seems to be looking real good. I was so easily conned, I know but then I was in the mood for a good drink so I ordered this. With the mixutre of fresh lemon, strawberries and soda, this drink is really refreshing. One sip into the drink and it will wake you up thanks to the lemon zest that adds the sour yet cooling and rejuvenating. They also add in Strawberry syrup to give counter the sour taste. All in all, I love this thirst-quenching drink. The RM12 was well paid for!
LOVE SODA RM12
CHICKEN SAUSAGE & TOAST/CROISSANT WITH EGG (SCRAMBLED) RM13.50
This dish was quite a let down. It was pretty ordinary, nothing to scream and shout about. The croissant did not feel fresh and we felt that there seemed to be a lack of butter inside the bread and it tasted quite bland. As simple as it looked, the scramble egg was good though fortunately, something to made up for this ordinary dish. I could taste the abundant amount of cheese and butter in the egg. They made it very flavourful. Otherwise, this could have been a really expensive dish for food this bland.
MINESTRONE SOUP RM6.90
Did I tell you? One of my western style soup would be Minestrone soup. And I don't know how to tell you how good this soup was from Bonjour Garden unless you tried it yourself! This is definitely one of the best Ministrone Soup I have ever come across this far. There are too many instant Minestrone Soup around, but this is awesome! It is rich, flavourful and Bonjour Garden is also very generous with its fresh ingredients! And I love how it is not overly sour so that I could still taste the different vegetables boiled with the soup itself. The dish comes with simple toast bread which you could dip in. The portion is very generous too. Love it!
TUNA MAYO SANDWICH RM9.90
I love how Bonjour Garden is very generous with their food. They definitely put in lotsa Tuna Mayo and vegetables for this simple sandwich. I could have like it better if not for the bread they use. The bread was so rock-hard that we were having so much painful moments just working out our jaws to chew the bread. In the end, I decided to gave up the bread and just finished up the filling only.
From this point, feast your eyes on their breads! We only bought some of them back home as they were pricier than other bakeries, something to be expected as Bonjour Garden is a premium bakery.
Some blueberry pastries.
Dining in Bonjour Garden is a delightful experience thanks to their overall concept of the place. I love the selection of their breads and how we were all spoilt with their extensive menu. This place is definitely good for friends and family to hang out and spend time together as everyone would definitely find something they love or crave for from their long menus. If you don't feel like eating, check out their menu on drinks too!
I enjoy my visit at Bonjour Garden. Their servings are generous and the surrounding is clean and comfortable. Despite the many choices of their beautiful decorated breads, we realised that they seem to be lacking in terms of taste. As for the dining menu, I might just come back to revisit again next time to try out their other foods.
