A breath-of-fresh-air sense of humility infuses this cafe, formed by three friends who openly call themselves 'small potatoes' in KL's coffee-brewing scheme of life. But while Jun, Jan & Ang prefer to remain self-effacing, Littlepeople looms large as more than a blip on the cake-&-caffeine stalker's radar; the trio have earned their customer-pacifying stripes in prime venues like VCR, Artisan Roast & Three Little Birds, & they now render encouraging evidence of what aspirations might be accomplished when even the tiniest of dreamers band together with their hearts seemingly in the right place & their skills fittingly fine-tuned.
It's fair to forecast big things for Littlepeople - the steady tide of weekend patrons looked nothing short of content with this sunny, spacious setting, which stakes out a strategic spot on Old Klang Road. The cafe is in a genuine test-run phase until Oct. 14; visitors can currently pay as much or as little as they like for everything from filters (made with bags of beans that Jun brought home from a recent sojourn in Blighty) to flat whites & white tea, croissants with chicken ham & cheddar cheese to cakes like chocolate beetroot, mochi cheese & carrot, plus warm meals of polenta & pastas (the kitchen is shuttered at 3pm for now). Plans are also afoot for a brew bar where folks can come up close with the baristas for intimate interactions over oolong.
