Guide to the Best Cafés in Kuala Lumpur

Hello, my dear coffee lovers! In Düsseldorf, we love having breakfast in unique cafés and we took this love with us to Kuala Lumpur. So we are looking ever and always for the fanciest cafés wherever we are and so this blog post will be updated if I might find new ones after publishing. So let’s have a look at my favourite cafés in Kuala Lumpur!

Pulp by Papa Palheta

We really love the atmosphere of this! Based in Bangsar in an old factory hall it has an irresistible flair. You just feel chic and unique by entering it! I could have spend hours there! They sell good coffee, cute pastries and bottled cold-brew. For us one of the best cafés in Kuala Lumpur. My personal highlight was their small cheesecake!

You can find their website here.

New Chapter by The Owls Café

A very cool option for different types of breakfast. You can have various waffles with delicious toppings, amazing English muffins, granola, etc. etc. etc.. Everything paired with a cup of good coffee of course. The interior made it also easy to stay a bit: it was super cozy and made you felt like home!

We didn’t have any food there but I bet it is amazing (I saw lovely cakes there and I want to try them so bad!). But we had a really good coffee and what I loved (!) the most was that they offered metal straws for their drinks! This is a really good example of how small changes can make a big impact.

There are two of them, one is in Bangsar and the other one is in Bukit Bintang. You can find their website here.

The Coffee Shop at the Ilaika Store

Sometimes you find treasures while you are not even looking for them! We found one cool brand and my boyfriend wanted to buy a wallet from them which they offered in a shop in Petaling Jaya. We got there and not only their shop is amazing but they have an integrated coffee shop and it was really amazing!

This time I went for their Lemonade (I already had a coffee and more caffeine makes me able to see through time) my boyfriend ensures you that their coffee is really good. And the lemonade was delicious too!

As I couldn’t find a website, you can find their Instagram page here.

Lids and Finch

Located in Damansara Heights it isn’t one the typical path of tourists but if you come across this, this is very nice for a lunch. I loved the pastries and I had a lovely beef lasagna.

You can find their website here.

Aku Café

This café really blew me away. They do not only serve coffee but also feature local artists. So while you are having your coffee you can admire what painters or photographers created.
Located in Chinatown it is very close to the Petaling Street and the Pasar Seni, what makes it perfect as a small place for a break while shopping.

You can find their website here.
