DIMW Breakfast Platter @ Departure Lounge

It's the 2nd day of Raya today and most Malaysians are still on holiday till tomorrow, thus no Monday blues! :D Today was one of the days where God knows what got into me that I woke up as early as 6.35am, sacrificed my sleep just for a morning jog, ON A PUBLIC HOLIDAY ಠ_ಠ I can't believe it myself either! But I'm glad I did. After burning off some calories, it's time to reward my tummy. Drove all the way from Klang to Damansara Uptown, just for...wait for it..American Breakfast!

My sister first discovered this place few weeks back so she decided to bring me along this time to try it out and it was on her treat :* For an American breakfast freak like me, you know I wouldn't say NO. Who would?

Forget about the overrated and expensive american breakfasts at high end cafe that everyone has been talking about lately, why not try DIMW Breakfast Platter at Departure Lounge? What's so special about the breakfast platter at Departure Lounge is that it's customizable! That's why it's called Do-It-My-Way (DIMW) Breakfast Platter. Plus, it's an all day breakfast platter so no worries when you are craving for american breakfast platter even when you woke up late cause you want it, they have it. The platter ranging from 3 to 5 to 7 items according to your preferences (RM8.90, RM11.90, RM13.90 respectively) does not comes with a complimentary cup of coffee, but they do provide complimentary refillable water.
Grab one of this order chit from the counter and start customize your own breakfast platter. As you can see, there's quite a number of choices to choose from and oh all DIMW breakfast platter comes with 2 slices of toast (: 

My order chit; settled with a 5-items platter instead of 7 (: For a mushroom lover like me, I decided to try out their fresh button mushrooms. 
Near the entrance of the cafe was this wooden rack (right in the pic) filled with tons of travel books that you don't usually see in cafes. 

The counter where you get your order chit, as well as drinks menu on the wall. This place is famous for their coffees as well but too bad I'm not a coffee person. 

The barista counter where you collect your drinks once it's done (: 
You'll be given a boarding pass for pending food/drinks, how cool is that (: 
The interior of the cafe with wall decorated with photos of different places/countries. Definitely fits in the whole concept of travelling since it's named as Departure Lounge. It's must first time seeing such plastic chairs as well O_O There's even a huge sofa that are meant for those who come in big group, super comfortable. 
Their all day menu; they serves croissants, bagel, sandwhiches, french toast, omelette that comes in real huge portion and pastas as well. 
Caffe Latte @ RM9.00 

A cup of latte with pretty coffee art. 
Finally, my breakfast is served!
I was quite taken aback at the first glance, frankly speaking I was expecting a bigger portion.
My DIMW breakfast platter comes with 2 slices of toast, 1 hash brown, 2 chicken sausages, 1 beef bacon, an omelette and mushrooms. 

Our breakfast platters wanted a group shot so yeah HEHE 

Stephen's 7-items-DIMW breakfast platter has 2 slices of toast, 1 hash brown, 1 slice of turkey ham, 1 beef bacon, 2 pieces of fish fingers, 1 pancake, scrambled eggs and canned mushrooms.

My sister's 5-items-DIMW breakfast platter; similar to mine just that she had pancake instead of mushrooms. 

One last shot before we started to dig in! :9
Complimentary butter and strawberry jam for our toasts. 

Overall, it was quite a satisfying and hearty breakfast. The portion turned out to be just nice for me (: It would be even better if they gave at least 2 pieces of bacon instead of one. From most of the 4sq tips that I've read, it seems that their food and coffee isn't as good as it was before and there are even people complaining that it's expensive. To me, it's still quite reasonable and affordable. I would definitely see myself coming back again to indulge myself with breakfast and read some travel books. I'll drag along the lovelies as well since we all love American breakfast! It's a nice and cosy place to get some work done since it provides free wifi as well. I reckon you to visit this place earlier if you plan to have your breakfast as it gets packed as early as 9am! If I'm not mistaken, they now have set lunch as well. 

But there's one thing, I hope they can do something about the flies. Not only that I find it irritating, it's of course unhygienic :/ 
My tummy sure was happy when I left

At first saw the title I thought you went to the airport just to have breakfast. Then started to formulate a comment to poke fun at your dedication in going the distance for food. Was so excited. SO EXCITED.

Mana tau bukan airport. Bummer.
