There’s something for every palate – the Triple Chocolate Cheesecake (RM22) and Black Velvet (RM18) are moreish in their decadence and chocolatey goodness, while the Lemon Cheesecake (RM22) and Carrot Pineapple Cake (RM20) have the perfect contrast of zing amidst the sweetness.

Apart from desserts, Reggae Cafe has an extensive selection of hearty meals that are all beautifully plated and exceptionally tantalising.

For a taste of the Caribbean, go for the Mofongo (RM30), a Puerto Rican dish of garlicky fried plantains and olive oil.

The Jamaica Sweet Burger (RM24) is a towering structure of a juicy fish patty and fried egg within fluffy brioche buns with sides of golden fries, while the Rosemary Lamb Rack (RM45) has outrageously tender meats infused with fragrant herbs.

Another highlight of the cafe is the open kitchen right by the entrance, where you can witness their skilled chefs crafting the Calzone (RM40) from scratch. Perfect for sharing, this “pizza” looks like an oversized hand pie – when cut open, it reveals a burst of aroma from the ham, tomato sauce, and luscious stretch of mozzarella.
