ie Cafe which is part of the ie Organic & Heathly Food Centre recently opened its doors for business at the D'Piazza Mall on 9 June 2010. It is the new branch of the original shop in Pulau Tikus.
ie Cafe currently serves organic and healthy set lunch which is available on weekdays (menu changes daily), ala-carte items (fried rice, spaghetti, meesua tao etc.), Easiyo yogurt, afternoon tea sets, fresh juices etc.
ie members enjoy 10% discount.
According to the menu, intensive heat with high flames destroys nutrients in food especially vitamins B and C thus the reason why ie Cafe has adopted the slow cooking and low fire method.
|Set Lunch (RM9.90)|
I ordered the set lunch which came with curry chicken (with organic chicken), 8 multigrain rice, stir fried spinach, seaweed tofu soup and sugar cane drink. The set lunch is available from 11am to 2:30pm from Monday to Friday.

|Chicken Spaghetti (RM11.90)|
Hubs ordered the chicken spaghetti. All tomato, potato, spaghetti and chicken are organic ingredients.
The menu is rather limited for now but it sure felt good to be eating healthy and wholesome meal.
|Organic Mocha Blended (RM8.90)|
They whip up pretty awesome mocha blended here. Thick and strong flavours.
This cute little cafe is designed with a semi-cottage feel and is decorated with personal items bought by the owner when travelling overseas.
We have also tried their afternoon tea set on a different occasion. It is available from 2:30pm to 6:00pm and is priced at RM18.90 for two pax (RM11.90 per pax). The set includes organic tea, homemade biscuits, scones, fruits, sandwiches and cakes.
|Wide array of organic and health food products|
Organic foods are made in a way that limits the use of synthetic materials during production. For the vast majority of human history, agriculture can be described as organic; only during the 20th century was a large supply of new synthetic chemicals introduced to the food supply. This more recent style of production is referred to as "conventional." Under organic production, the use of conventional non-organic pesticides, insecticides and herbicides is greatly restricted and saved as a last resort. If livestock are involved, they must be reared without the routine use of antibiotics and without the use of growth hormones, and generally fed a healthy diet. In most countries, organic produce may not be genetically modified.
Organic food production is a heavily regulated industry, distinct from private gardening. Currently, the European Union, the United States, Canada, Japan and many other countries require producers to obtain special certification in order to market food as "organic" within their borders.
