Coffee culture is noticeably becoming more and more popular in South East Asia. If you are a coffee addict and can’t go without the brown gold, KL absolutely won’t disappoint you. Here’s my list with the best cafes in Kuala Lumpur.
PULP by Papa Palheta
Surrounded and hidden between an old printing factory, the Pulp represents a stylish mix of minimalist, urban and industrial design which also takes up the history of its own location in the design. But it is not only convincing from the outside but also from the inside with carefully selected furnishings and accessories. Not only the design but also the coffee and the variety of delicacies are definitely worth a visit!

Kopenhagen Coffee is located in the exclusive neighborhood of Mont Kiara. Inspired by the Danish Hygge-Lifestyle the cafe is just the perfect place for hipsters and everyone who loves the Scandinavian way of coffee culture.

VCR is all about great coffee made with love and attention to detail. Both coffeeshops in trending suburb Bangsar and Pudu are beautifully designed in a contemporary style with a modern twist.

New Chapter by The Owls Cafe
In the very south of KL the spacious and cosy café offers excellent coffee as well as various breakfast and brunch variations from croissant with scrambled eggs to delicious pasta and seafood dishes. Also highly recommended are the signature waffles with fruits and ice cream at prices between RM 10 – 25. My personal favorite: Rebecca with blueberries, strawberries, Earl Grey ice cream and maple syrup.

Aku Cafe & Gallery
Aku Cafe & Gallery is most likely the best cafe in China Town. Only a few meters away from the famous Petaling Street the cafe welcomes travelers, artists and other creatives in a comfortable and tranquil atmosphere to enjoy a good coffee and maybe some tasty cake. To find the entrance you need to keep your eyes open: It is located on the first floor of House No. 8.
