Urban Coffee

Special thanks to Urban Republic for extending this food review invitation.

Update: This business has ceased its operations.

Urban Republic is a chain of digital lifestyle and gadgets stores. There are currently three Urban Republic outlets: Gurney Plaza, Queensbay Mall and Mid Valley Megamall.
I visited the Queensbay Mall outlet today. Located at Level 2 and adjacent to its sister store Switch, this Urban Republic outlet has an extended floor space in the middle of the hallway.
As part of its branding initiatives, each Urban Republic outlet contains a café wing called Urban Coffee. The café features wooden theme in its design, such as tabletop specially crafted from individual planks.
As usual, my favorite coffee (especially for first visits) is the ubiquitous Latte (RM10.00). The coffee beans here carry medium dark roast, as Urban Coffee discovered that coffee drinkers in Penang prefer bolder flavor. The coffee is reasonably smooth and soothing down the throat.
There are other types of coffee such as Macchiato and Cappuccino, while non-coffee choices include Green Tea Latte, Chai Latte, Chocolate Mint and fruit juices.
Urban Coffee's menu includes light snacks such as sandwiches, cakes, croissants and pies. On occasion, there are also seasonal items such as granola bars.
Last but not least, Urban Coffee also carries a handful of merchandise such as T-shirts and post cards. There is even a post box which customers can actually use!
