First look at this cafe, the cottage bicycle and the tree trunks placed in front of the shop give out a quaint impression, a scenery seemingly picture-perfect to be included in a movie such as 'The Journey', or '一路有你'. FYI, 'The Journey' is Malaysia's top grossing local movie of all time with box office sales of RM 12.92 million as of February 2014, beating previous record holder 'KL Gangster' since 2011.
Once situated few doors away from Grandeur Gallery Cafe, this cafe has been relocated to the new Kota Kemuning shop units behind McDonald's, called the Suasana 2 Business Park. For those who are familiar with the area, this cafe is directly in front of the pasar malam spot or the Pao Xiang Bak Kut Teh. Alternatively, you could utilize the Google Map provided below, or click on the QR Code for further directions.
Once inside, you will realize that this cafe isn't very big. In fact, most of their tables are arranged in a way that there are minimal distances between them. This is done on purpose, according to Dotz Cafe's owner. The reason is to provide closer proximity between customer, to give them a chance to interact and to communicate among each other.

With a focus to make this cafe very sociocentric, or socially oriented, this cafe owner - cum - barista makes it an effort to talk with and get to know his customers better. "I don't want to just serve my customers good coffee. I want to communicate with them, to make them feel that they could come to this cafe to meet new people, to make new friends, and to probably find potential opportunity to start a business partnership with other patrons", said the cafe owner.

|Ladies, maybe the Cullens are here too? :P|
A cafe that promotes patrons to meet new people and to socialize with the neighbors and community, while enjoying a cup of good coffee. In a growing society that strives on productivity but lessen communications and interactions with each other, this cafe do have a virtuous aim to help others to take a step back from our hectic lives and get to know each other better.
