Thursdvys thrills with its quirky décor and good food

Café-hopping has become a culture among millennials. It’s no surprise then to see cafés with unique concepts sprouting up in every nook and corner of our cities.

In the friendly neighbourhood of TTDI, the café scene is bustling with activity, in particular an eye-catching café with a logo in the shape of a human tooth.

Called Thursdvys, this quirky café is located in a row of shops along Lorong Datuk Sulaiman 1.

Pronounced Thursdays, the café’s name was picked after its founder, Hadri experienced a string of significant events on that particular day of the week.

According to Hadri, he had a dream once of one of his teeth falling out. The dream happened on a Thursday.

Immediately after, he remembered the superstition that someone older would die if one ever dreamed of losing a tooth.

And true to that superstition, Hadri’s father died three weeks later – also on a Thursday.

In memory of his dear father, who had always been supportive of his dream to open a café, Hadri named it Thursdvys, adding of course a quirky change to the traditional spelling.

In the café hangs a plaque explaining the origins of its name.

With a quirky name and cool design, the café attracts customers from near and far.

Founded in 2014 by Hadri and his good friend Hanif, Thursdvys stands out from other cafés in the area thanks to its unique structure and design, inspired by the cafés in Melbourne where the former studied.

The walls are decorated with artworks by local artists from a nearby gallery which customers can buy. The aesthetically-pleasing interior décor gives off a relaxing atmosphere and ambiance with easy music playing in the background.

Thursdvys offers a variety of multi-cuisine choices for breakfast, lunch, and dinner that include fresh salads, fish and chips, egg dishes, roasted chicken, pasta and more.

They also have a rather mouthwatering spread of homemade cakes, best enjoyed with their top-notch coffee, brewed and prepared by their friendly baristas.

The next time you’re in TTDI, make a pit stop at Thursdvys. Unless it’s a Thursday of course, since that’s their one day off.
