The Lord's Cafe, Tanah Rata, Cameron Highlands

When it's making a trip to Cameron Highlands, a trip will not be completed without trying their tea definitely. And to complement this beverage, there is no other better than warm pastry. Google Scones and Cameron Highlands and I bet the top search list will lead you to the Lord's Cafe in Tanah Rata. Opened until late afternoon only, this is spot which you would not wanna miss, so plan your itinerary accordingly

Famous for Scones and Scones alone, they take pride in baking them in small batches regularly over their business hours to ensure you get the freshest possible piece. There are only 2 types available, the plain one and the one with Strawberry bits.

The plain scone (RM2.50) comes with whipped cream, strawberry jam and butter. Microwaved to serve warm, the scone is crumbly and is indeed a comfort food on a rainy day (especially when buttered generously). The Scones with strawberry bit is slightly pricier at RM2.80, already very fruity to be eaten on its own, that is why no strawberry jam is served along with it. I would prefer the plain one though if you are dining in, just divide it into many portions and try different combination of taste between whipped cream, butter and jam.

The Banana Crepe (RM3+) is actually a thin pancake. Dusted with icing sugar, there was no maple syrup nor honey nor butter to go along with it. The unripe banana used made this dish slightly disappointing. Perhaps one should just stick with ordering their scones as its their forte. But I do see other tables ordering their lemon cheese cake and the chicken pie, perhaps those are good too.

Other items are priced very reasonably. The Hot Chocolate is just RM2.20, and the quality of this beverage will put many Chinese coffeeshop to shame by attempted daylight robbery for diluted Milo at RM2.60! Fresh fruit juices are at RM3+ while milkshakes at RM5 zone. There serve sandwiches too for those who wanted a heavier meal. The teatime for 2 in the photo earlier just cost less than RM13 only.

Some simple home decor along the window panes. Books and magazines and some board games are available. There are motivating quotes on the wall, which mostly are Bible verses, perhaps that's why they changed their name from previously T Cafe.

 A lot of Mat Sallehs tourist, mostly are backpackers from the nearby budget hotel I supposed :)

There is no need for ceiling fan here, nor aircond in Camerons Highlands. Let the natural mountain breeze enter through the windows. The atmosphere here is simple and calm, a manifestation of their tagline "Peace to all who enter our Lord's home"

The Lord's Cafe is situated on the first floor of one of the shoplots at the main road of Tanah Rata, the row whereby you find the only Starbucks in Camerons. Keep your eyes open for this signboard at the stairs.
