Colobaba Cafe in JB: Boba Cakes, Instagrammable Fruit Drinks and Pastel-Coloured Interior

JB is no stranger to Instagrammable cafes, but we found one that may just pose as serious competition to existing cafes: Colobaba. This newly-opened establishment nails all three departments: food, drinks, and interior.

We rarely see Instagrammable staircases that don’t elude a grunge and mysterious look, so this rainbow staircase definitely earns brownie points.

To match the aesthetic of the cafe, Colobaba also has equally colourful drinks — they’re so pretty that you wouldn’t know these drinks are actually made of fruits and vegetables!

They’re also creatively concocted with several other ingredients, such as yogurt, cheese, nuts, flowers, enzymes as well as probiotics for gut health.

The cafe does not have an official menu on their social media pages, but from some perusal, we can already tell they have an extensive selection of drinks and most of them contain at least two fruits.

Apart from fruit drinks and teas, they also have (you guessed it) bubble tea.

But this one takes the cake: boba desserts!

Imagine soft, fluffy pancakes that’s coated with sauce and topped with pearls. We don’t think we’ve seen this combination yet — or at least not within such close proximity to us.

If you want toppings on your cake but not boba, how about oreo pieces?

Or if you don’t want toppings at all and would prefer a slightly more neutral flavour, we reckon their matcha version would work just fine.

So many things to choose from, but so little time! While you may not be able to try every single item off the menu, you can take as many pictures as you want — so go ahead and spam your feed with all your IG-worthy shots.
