Kota Kinabalu’s Ampersand Specialty Coffee & Co-workplace is able to strike a good balance between edgy industrial and cozy in their modern cafe set up. The cement-washed walls, exposed beams, mismatched but carefully picked furniture and raw wooden elements combined with a good amount of live potted plants, vibrant pops of color and the inviting smell of coffee, altogether, create a cool and relaxed atmosphere. It’s like visiting your hip and stylish friend’s apartment.
There is space for everyone too. You can sit in one of their free standing bar-high tables so you can be more alert while working on your laptop. There are regular tables for groups and meetings. There is a loft with seating that provides a little more privacy.
Whether you’d like to enjoy a cup of coffee on your own, hang out with friends or hammer down some work away from home, Ampersand’s eclectic space is designed to accommodate you.
