The Glasshouse Tearoom in Johor Bahru, Bandar Jaya Putra

The-Glasshouse-Tearoom-Johor-Bahru-Bandar-Jaya-Putra

Just opened, Glasshouse Tearoom is a one of a kind elegant chill out place, unique in Johor and Singapore.

Glasshouse Tearoom is set in a standalone bungalow in Bandar Jaya Putra (JP Perdana). It's along a picturesque street with individual F & B outlets, all with their own interesting themes. Other signature outlets here include Just Want Coffee and Once Upon Time cafe.

Inside Glasshouse Tearoom, the decor is neo-classical European chic, which is understated yet elegant and charming. The earthly wood colours, ornate yet subtle wallpaper, chandelier and heavy pastel curtains felt like a typical contemporary European country home. The guests feel like they are gathering in a home rather than a restaurant.

The glasshouse is an enclosed extension at the back of the bungalow. Surrounded by greenery, the glasshouse is bright and spacious (during the day). It looked like a perfect setting for hiding out with best friends.

Love these shelves of exquisite, classy teacups and saucers. It triggered the gawker and hoarder instincts in me :P

A huge chandelier hangs from the ceiling of The Glasshouse.

There is also a grand piano in The Glasshouse. Le Wen, the owner, told me that customers are welcome to play the piano and there had been many impromptu performances to the delight of the guests.

I shall be back to grab a video of someone playing the piano :D



Wei Ling, Manager shared that Glasshouse Tearoom aims to bring quality lifestyle experiences to their guests. The Glasshouse Tearoom serves premium teas, pastries, ice cream, and some savoury bites. Glasshouse Tearoom also hold events that let customers appreciate beautiful life and art.

I am no tea aficionado at the moment but I enjoyed The Glasshouse's teas so much that I decided that teas shall be the next big thing for me to dabble into :D

These premium teas please the eye with their beautiful hues, and come in charming pots, cups, saucers and teaspoons. The teas perfume the air with their pleasant aroma and their flavours delight our taste buds.

The Glasshouse Tearoom also has a small selection of savouries. This gently savoury vegetarian Sweet Pepper Quiche (RM15.90+) served with a leafy salad is a nice light meal to go with Lighthouse Tearoom's teas.

The Glasshouse Tearoom is on the right, just beside Just Want Coffee, a haven for coffee lovers.

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)
