Making its debut along the increasingly popular Jalan Sin Chew Kee, Breakfast Spot lives up to its name as the latest cafe in Bukit Bintang for your first meal of the day. The double-storey space was formerly a homestay before it was refurbished to its current state, featuring a glasshouse-style patio and striking green and white facade. Inside, monochromatic murals juxtapose neatly potted greens, setting a charming ambiance with plenty of photogenic corners. Kitchen service starts as early as 8am, with options including pancakes, French omelette, and a DIY Big Breakfast, accompanied by your preferred cup of coffee or tea.

Address: 2, Jalan Sin Chew Kee, Bukit Bintang, 50150 Kuala Lumpur

Opening hours: 8am to 6pm daily

Bangsar’s new cafe cum event space boasts distinctively Nordic-style interiors with white-on-white furniture and fixtures. Imagine scattered pebbles for seats and fine objets d’art placed carefully on tables occupying the upper floor of a sunlit shoplot in the Telawi area and you’ll get the picture. The cafe’s humble assortment of pastries takes inspiration from Parisian boulangeries and patisseries, comprising buckwheat sourdough loaves, decadent cakes, and imported macarons from France.

3. Take A Bow

Take A Bow just opened its doors at The Sphere in June, but is already fast becoming a hotspot among the city’s cafe-hopping crowd. It’s not hard to see why, thanks to its cosy cottage-inspired aesthetic and laid-back atmosphere. Established by Third Wave—which is also responsible for Sunbather Coffee right next door—the new concept encourages customers to “celebrate the tiny victories” in life, and what better way than with a good meal? The current soft-launch menu features a variety of dishes with international influences, such as Turkish Eggs, Banh Mi on Avo, and Swedish meatballs.

Address: UG-5, The Sphere, Jalan Kerinchi, Bangsar South, 59200 Kuala Lumpur

Opening hours: 10am to 10pm daily



4. Tsubaki Omakase

Can’t get enough of omakase dining? Add TTDI’s Tsubaki Omakase to your list next, and let the chef take you through an ever-changing menu of dishes highlighting carefully selected premium ingredients. Each menu is personalised according to your selected omakase set (prices range from RM298 to RM1,298), with seasonal add-ons or a la carte orders including donburi, uni temaki, and foie gras.

Address: Greens Terrace, Unit No.G-1, Jalan Wan Kadir 3, Taman Tun Dr Ismail, 60000 Kuala Lumpur

5. Nost KL


Ampang folks have a quaint new spot to check out for coffee and desserts: Nost KL. The unassuming eatery evokes a hint of nostalgia with its choice of furniture and lighting, from antique-looking lamps to classic wooden chairs and tables. Expect Japanese inflections in the soft-launch menu, featuring croissants served with egg mayo, crabstick, mentaiko, bonito flakes and nori, as well as the signature daifuku mochi. Good news for pet owners—your furry friends are welcome too!

Address: Jalan MPL 3, OFF, Jalan Merdeka, 68000 Ampang, Selangor

Opening hours: 10am to 6pm daily

Owlsome Cafe is the latest venture by the team behind The Owls Cafe, nestled beside The Next Chapter in Bukit Jalil. A textured coffee counter and terrazzo tabletops highlight the cafe’s clean, minimalist interiors, with bright orange seats and tall yellow tables adding a pop of colour in one corner. Here, customers can enjoy a range of sandwiches, pastries, and coffee while looking out to a serene field of greenery through the cafe’s floor-to-ceiling windows.
