Coffee and Cakes at Cestino Bakery and Bistro near AEON Jusco Tebrau, Johor Bahru

Macaroons-Johor-Bahru

This is my second visit to Cestino near AEON Jusco Tebrau Mall, invited by Ah Zai, Cestino's Asst Manager.

Cestino is just a short walk through the AEON Jusco Mall covered car park or if you drive, just a 2 minute swing around to the Tebrau City Residences apartment blocks adjacent to the Mall.

As always, I can't help but stop to marvel at this giant mural of Marilyn Monroe taking pride of place at Cestino.

Cestino is a good place to chill as it is comfortable, has a good range of coffees and other hot and cold drinks, lots of cakes and desserts as well as cafe dishes like fish and chips. There is free wifi and ample free parking right at Cestino's door step.

During our visit, had a couple of Cestino's house blended coffees and a riot of colourful cakes :P

The Double Chocolate Walnut Brownie was moist, buttery with crunchy walnuts, and not overly sweet (RM10.90).

Other cakes I didn't taste today but they certainly look enticing enough for me to come back for them soon.

Tiramisu-Johor

Cestino's tiramisu with chocolate, espresso, cheese and liqueur is one cool cake and among Cestino's hottest sellers (RM10.90).

Cheesecake-Johor-Bahru

Cheesecakes are one of my favourite cakes.

Macaroons-Johor-Bahru

Cestino's macaroons come in 15 flavours including their signature salted caramel (RM3.20 each). Not my type of biscuit but I acknowledge that there are lots of macaroon fans out there :P

Cestino's Vanilla Cream Brulee with a rich, sweet custard base (RM10.90)

Cestino's Cream Brulee comes with this roselle poached pear. Interesting slightly tangy, sweet taste and crunchy juicy texture. Beautiful to look at too :))

We also tried Cestino's popular fish and chips (RM17.90).

I like Cestino's homemade tartar sauce. Rich, creamy, tangy and savoury with interesting crunchy bits of pickled vegetables like cucumbers mixed in.

Coffee-Johor-Bahru

Cestino's full bodied house blend coffees and lattes are made with aromatic Arabica beans.

Mocha-Johor-Bahru

Cestino's signature mocha for the coffee drinkers who like chocolate and espresso blend.

I snapped a pic of Cestino's hot beverage menu :P

For obvious reason, this is my favourite coffee blend at Cestino ;))

The next time you are nearby or in AEON Jusco Tebrau, drop by Cestino and check out their cakes and coffees. Cestino also has set lunch and high tea deals - ask about these value combo deals when you are  there.

  4. Tried the lemon cheesecake, Vanilla Cream Brulee and Double Chocolate Walnut Brownie , all pretty good. Cappucinno and latte were excellent. Get their one person and 2 person sets (choice of cake + coffee / tea), better value.

    Very honest staff too - I forgot to take my change and left the shop. The male crew member rushed out to return it to me.

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
