Ferringhi Coffee Garden is operated by the owners of the equally famous Ferringhi Garden Restaurant, which is located just next door. With a similar lush natural charm, Ferringhi Coffee Garden is a daytime (breakfast & lunch) concept, in contrast to Ferringhi Garden Restaurant, which is a nighttime (lunch & dinner) concept.

Ambience at Ferringhi Coffee Garden is highlighted by ample greenery (including a green wall of plants!), colourful art pieces produced by local Malaysian artists, and sturdy wooden furniture. The large outdoor / al-fresco seating area feels like a cozy garden, incredibly beautiful. Feels like a European style countryside. This however, means that indoor seating is limited, and both warm and wet weather will affect the place.

Service at Ferringhi Coffee Garden is pretty good for a bistro. Staff are friendly, polite, and professional, able to converse in English, and show due attention to diners. Not the fastest or most efficient service I've experienced, style is more casual and laid-back. I find staff rather knowledgable, able to describe dishes when asked, and also presenting dishes in appropriate order.

Food at Ferringhi Coffee Garden is distinctly Western style, with strong American and British influences. The menu features all-day breakfast / brunch, alongside high tea items, and portions are large. I generally find taste of dishes to be above average for this type of food, but their presentation is very good, plated beautifully. Especially so for their pastries, which are pretty! Prices are decent for a bistro, budget about MYR $40 per person for a meal here.

Like an oasis near the beach, the lush greenery within the premises is relaxing, and the thoughfully designed space lends well to intimate gatherings. Very European countryside feel.

A decent Cafe Latte (MYR $9.80). Pretty looking modern glass it's served in.

There is a small selection beer and wine available on the menu, such as this Beer Hoegaarden (MYR $19.80), despite being a breakfast and lunch place. Who says you can't have beer for breakfast?

Loved the Freshly Baked Mini Scones With Lemon Creme Fraiche, Strawberry Jam (MYR $15.80), made fresh daily. The small scones are crumbly, with a nice cake-like texture, and are fragrant with a good buttery flavour. It's supposed to be served with a Lime & Lemon Marmalade on the side, but it seems to have run out during my visit. Still, the strawberry jam was decent, and the lemon creme fraiche had a slight zesty tang to it.
