#TheLullaList: Our favourite cafes and bakeries in Kuala Lumpur
Nothing says weekend fun more than going for a weekend brunch sesh with your favourite bunch of people, indulging in scrumptious pastries and delicious grub. Here's a list of our current favourite spots in KL and PJ. Bonus: they're all pretty insta-worthy if you're all about pretty pictures for the 'gram.
P.S: Don't forget to maintain social distance and keep masks on until your food arrives!
- Kopenhagen Coffee, Mont Kiara
Kopenhagen Coffee is a Scandinavian-inspired minimalist paradise with excellent coffee and healthful fare. Simply pick a quiet corner among the laptop-tapping digital nomads in glittering Mont Kiara and order one of the generously proportioned open sandwiches! Check out their second location, which opened recently in Kapas, Bangsar.
- Three Years Old Cafe, Bukit Bintang
Three Years Old Cafe is set along a row of old terrace houses in Bukit Bintang with a history reaching back to the 1920s, and is housed in a double-story 80-year-old building. The lovely new cafe first opened its doors in April and soon established itself as a stylish hangout for coffee and sweets. The serene beauty pours from every corner and nook of this fresh environment, which is cosy, simple, and drenched in plenty of natural light.
- Jao Tim, Chinatown
What was once a hotel has been resurrected as an event space, art gallery, and cafe known as Jao Tim (which means hotel in Cantonese). Jao Tim takes you back to the Great Depression era, when beauty and luxury were two of the most significant components in elevating one's attitude. And that's what they aspire to create when visitors walk into Jao Tim: a welcoming and relaxing environment where you may appreciate art and a cup of tea while listening to vinyl records all day. Fun fact: the wood in the cafe is over a century old.
- Small Shifting Space, Petaling Street
It takes ingenuity to stand out in one of the city's hippest neighbourhoods. SSS has done so in a stylish and substantive manner. Downstairs, gleaming metal doors glide open to reveal a small space. You can see right into the open kitchen and barista bar from here. Grey marble tables and textured panelling are set against exposed brick and cement walls. Upstairs, there is a huge open floor that is perfect for parties.
- Hide and Seek Coffee, Petaling Jaya
Hide & Seek, a popular game on Petaling Street, now has its own shop! The cafe, which is located in Taman Paramount, has huge industrial feelings, with walls primarily covered in cement to give it a rough, unfinished appearance. Place your purchase and choose a seat from their unique collection of chairs in a variety of colours and designs.
- Dou Dou Bake, Petaling Jaya
This trendy bakery, which opened last year in the thick of the epidemic, was the buzz of the town. Dou Dou Bake, located in PJ's Taman Rasa Sayang, stands out from the crowd with its Instagram-worthy interior and, of course, its delectable pastries that have customers raving. A must-try is their trademark sourdough croissant.
