You will be greeted by rows of clothing when you enter the store but if you want to fuel up before shopping, then head to the cafe which is on the second floor. Food offerings are pretty limited but their desserts and drinks are enough to . Don't leave without trying their mint chocolate pie and espresso ice cube.

Rowan & Parsley Food Atelier

"Oasis in a dump" and "sanctuary" are just some words used to describe this gem of a cafe. Situated in an industrial glasshouse among factories, this rose among the thorns is known as much for its interior design as for its delicious French and Italian style brunches and desserts - think truffle porcini mushroom soup, and tiger prawn pesto pasta and earl grey ganache pie. It may be a little difficult to locate, but trust us, it is worth travelling and getting lost for.

Opening Hours: 11.30 am – 11 pm Tuesday to Sunday

Price Range: RM 15 – RM 30 (S$6 - S$31)

Address: No.17, Jalan Cenderai 20, Kawasan Perindustrial Kota Putri, Johor Bahru
