Humble Beginnings Mille Crepe @ Jalan Telawi, Bangsar

I still remember my first slice of mille crepe..my brother had kindly tapau (buy back) a piece for me all the way back from Nadeje in Melaka. It was lusciously creamy, so delicious that I immediately fell in love with it. 

Fast forward one year, and we can now get mille crepe in certain cafes in KL too. Prior to this, Humble Beginnings mille crepe were available for order online and they would deliver to your home or you could pick-up in certain locations in KL. I had them on my radar for some time, since some of my friends have commented in the past that their mille crepes were good. So naturally, I was very happy when I found out that they were opening a cafe in Jalan Telawi, Bangsar.

French Vanilla Mille Crepe


The shop is located next to Subway on Jalan Telawi, it is quite small but sufficient space for a cafe. There were about 5-6 types of mille crepe available during our visit plus cheesecakes. Usually I would order the French vanilla flavour at other places, so I thought we should try it here too.



The mille crepe here consists of twenty layers of crepes with combination of fresh cream and vanilla custard. Everything is hand made and hand layered.

We have just had a heavy lunch, so I told Hubby we should share a slice, and if it's good, we can always order another. I had quite high expectations for the mille crepe here, but sadly I found the crepe layers too hard. It wasn't as smooth as we would have liked it to be, usually we could just use the fork and cut a slice effortlessly but struggled to do that here. :( However, the flavour was nice so we finished it anyway.

The guy in the shop also let us sample the mango cheese mille crepe and peanut butter chocolate. In hindsight, we should have tried out their samples first before ordering our slice of cake as the mango cheese one was really good and the texture is exactly how I envisaged the mille crepe to be. We did give our feedback to the guy in the shop, so hopefully the French Vanilla will be good the next time we visit.




I love the mango cheese mille crepe but wasn't crazy about the peanut butter chocolate

  3. I guess I am not the only who think the texture were slightly hard. Maybe the cake was stored for a long time in the fridge...

    1. I think so too. The vanilla one was also closest to the top, whereas the mango cheese was at the bottom. They shd get the problem fixed.

  7. Yen,I actually wanted to order this when we had our holidays in Penang ad they also have a branch there but then, we had to cut short our stay becoz my girl had diarrhoea so we didn't get the chance to try.I would have thought that peanut butter Mille crepe is good but looks like mango flavour is the black horse

  8. This guy was with Nadeje in Malacca - quarrelled with the boss or something and came out to open his own - I think in Penang and Singapore at first - made-to-order only. Dunno where the guy is based himself - if he's not there, then these would be made by his employees...

    Come and try the ones in Sibu - 30 layers (these, 20 only, I read somewhere). Vanilla: Rm6.60, rum & raisin: RM7.80 and double chocolate: RM8.80...all cheaper and I would say, bigger and nicer too!

  14. i have a theory! i think the cakes that have been in the chiller for a few hours are hardened, while the ones that are fresh in the chiller are super-soft. so maybe the cakes need to be brought home and allowed to soften =)

    1. Or maybe not many customers at the start, so the cakes have been sitting there for quite some time. Sigh, if it's too hard, they shd ask the customer to wait a while before consuming.

  19. I wonder if they did not thaw it enough before serving or had it been sitting in the fridge a wee too long?

    1. Yeah could be either of the reasons. I did take photos for a bit, so it shouldnt be an excuse to serve customers a hard slice of cake.
