2d Sunway Nexis: A tour of 2d Europe


The 2d cafe located at Sunway Nexis, Kota Damansara, Selangor offers an unusual ambience that will be a treat for your senses.

The entire cafe looks like a giant sketch of 2d drawings bringing you into an alternate reality upon entering its premises similar to that of a comic book.
And they haven’t missed a spot. Everything has been painstakingly hand drawn or painted including the furniture, doors and windows, right down to the outline of the plastic bottles of its beverage offerings. Perhaps the only items that are of colour in this black and white cafe are the handcrafted beverages (bubble tea, fruit soda mixes and more). 


The theme of traditional Europe at 2d Sunway Nexis was chosen by its franchisee, Phoebe Lim, and features well-known icons of Europe. 

A stroll inside will take you across the continent with sketches of Big Ben, the London Eye, streets of the Jordaan district in Amsterdam, a Roman Bath and more. 

Lim explains that travel trips to Europe are on many people’s bucket lists, hence she decided to capture the essence of the continent at the cafe through its 2d-interior design concept.


The result — an amazingly Instagram-able concept. “Enjoy your ‘trip’ and take as many pictures as you want,” Lim adds. 

One can also check out 2d’s other two outlets in Sunway Geo and ss15 Subang. Both have their own distinctive themes — Japanese-European hybrid and Egyptian respectively.
