The Coffee Lab by Frankie Interior Design @ Taman Soon Kiong, KK


The Coffee Lab by Frankie Interior Design may be the latest addition to the cafe scent in Kota Kinabalu. Pun intended, The Coffee Lab offers some good selection of coffee for caffein addicts as well as cafe hoppers, but it is not limited to beverages. In fact, the cafe do serve proper breakfast and lunch every Monday to Friday, and breakfast only for Saturday.

Located at Taman Soon Kiong, Jalan Penempatan (opposite KK Fuchow Association 福州会馆 / Sabah Golf and Country Club), The Coffee Lab may cause people who are not familiar with this part of KK, some extra miles to find them. Tips is: Do search for Frankie Interior Design (FiD)'s signboard, you should be able to find the place!

Most of the cafe staffs at The Coffee Lab (including the coffee roaster!) are Interior Designers from FiD! During one of my visit the company's owner Mr Frankie actually busy with the coffee machine behind the counter, I wonder if he is making me my Latte!

According to the barista, all furnitures you see in The Coffee Lab are for sale too! They do not want to confuse the customer by removing all the price tags (Once sit on it consider sold?!), if you are interested with the chairs or tables, do enquire with the barista.

I have tried and all satisfy with the cafe's Chichen Katsu Don, Valcano Burger and Breakfast Set. The Coffee Lab do serve pork on their menu (no wonder the Valcano Burger so yummy!) so if you are looking for Halal food, do take note.

By the way the map's drop pin is not so accurate but it's not far from the actual location. Good luck!

Disappointed with the new portions in fancy big looking plates! The actual portions have shrunk tremendously, especially the salads. Was my favourite place to eat n chill.

Very disappointed with the new portions disguised in the fancy new flat wares. Actual content is very much reduced than before..
