It surely is a nuisance for me to drive all the way to TTDI from where I live because it takes approx 30-35 minutes to get there (minus the traffic and the difficulty in looking for a parking spot). So I would read up a few trust-worthy recommendations and reviews before I decided to step in a cafe in TTDI for I wouldn't want to drive all the way there and ended up leaving with bad aftertaste from the food.
It was a sunny afternoon and I had some time to travel to somewhere far from home. So, I thought I should head over to The Grumpy Cyclist in hoping that they'd serve really hearty breakfast menu which many people have been raving about so, why not?

I may not fancy cycling/bicycle and stuffs like that, but I really like the concept of this cafe - something unusual yet alluring enough to attract patrons into the cafe. & I believe that a cyclist enthusiast would really enjoy the ambiance here.
Though the cafe may be rather small and it could be hard to get a place to seat during peak hours so try to avoid going during the peak hours and on weekends. Maybe weekdays would be a good idea 'cause I was there with my friend during the weekdays.

The Gran Fondo a.k.a Big Breakfast @ RM18
A typical breakfast platter with baked beans, sauteed mushrooms, toast, sunny side up, bacons and sausages. I bet you can tell by the look of the picture above that the portion is pretty big for a girl. I can barely finish this, but I forced myself to finish it 'cause I really loathe leaving my food unfinished on the table - it's a common table manner that all of us should practice anyway. Though they should go easy on the seasoning 'cause the bacons were too salty.
And a plus point for this cafe is that they do serve Inside Scoop's ice-cream. Big breakfast at a super reasonable price + getting to indulge Inside Scoop's ice-cream without having to travel to the actual outlet? Okay this place is awesome, no?
