Special thanks to Bricklin for extending this food review invitation.

This my second visit to Bricklin Cafe Bar at Hin Bus Depot. This café is operated by the same company as Feeka Coffee Roasters, Butter & Beans, Food Foundry and Sitka Restaurant in Klang Valley.
Hin Bus Depot used to be operational back in the 1970s. The location which Bricklin currently occupies was the original entrance. The brick walls on both sides of the café are from the original building.
Bricklin's menu features 3 main items: coffee, bagels and cakes. I tried a bagel during my previous visit and liked it very much.
Coffee beans are supplied by a local roaster based in Penang. Brazil Cerrado blend is used today. Medium roast gives the cup of Cappuccino (RM10.00) moderately bold flavor. According to the barista, slow service during my previous visit was because the coffee grinder did not produce satisfactory results and had to be recalibrated.
Adjacent to Bricklin is an art gallery; admission to the gallery is free. Visitors should also check out the mural garden at the central courtyard. The murals are the works of several prominent artists including Ernest Zacharevic. It is also a good idea to visit Hin Bus Depot on Sundays to catch the Sunday Pop-Up Market. Held between 11:00am and 5:00pm, the flea market features all sorts of handicraft ranging from textiles to woodwork.
