BREAKING BREAD

In the world of power smoothies and vegan-friendly tacos we seem to forget what used to make the world go round just recently: a good ol’ sandwich! Montagu, a new cozy cafe in the epicenter of hustle and bustle of Batu Bolong street is here to remind us about some eternal values in life. Which is as simple as a hearty sandwich made with the best bread and stuffed with all the goodness, a comforting bowl of salad that tastes like home, a juice, a beer, a coffee – pick one, or consume one after another, whatever pleases you more. Just make sure you leave some room for that humble brownie square – trust us, you don’t want to miss that one!

The owner of this sleek, green sandwich bar is a striking Greek goddess – hence the warmest greeting for any patron stepping into the cafe. If it’s your second+ visit, get ready to be welcomed as you’re a part of the family now! Talking about some old school Greek hospitality here! This young lady who moves around the cafe with the speed of a lightning knows her food well: the poppy seed multi-cereal bread with for the sandwiches come from French bakery Monsieur Spoon, but don’t limit yourself and go try that GF bread made of banana flour and spirulina, which comes from one small family-run local bakery. Try the spicy, cheesy tuna melt sandwich – but be warned, it’s highly addictive. Same dangerous is the red rice bowl with tuna and pesto. And have we mentioned the brownies? Yep, you’ve got us.
