It’s not just about coffee and cake anymore. These designer cafes in KL and PJ take Malaysia’s cafe scene to the next level!


This quaint cafe is tucked away from the bustling streets of TTDI, surrounded by serene views that washes a calmness over visitors. Funky sofa chairs and cushions add a splash of colour to the wooden palette furniture built by the founders while an interior of exposed bricks and pipes lends a touch of industrial charm.

Dine on fusion twists such as the carbonara fire ramen (RM18.90) which, as the name suggests, is a fiery creation made even more satisfying with a healthy dose of cream. For something lighter, go for the simple yet hearty tomato soup with bread.

If you’ve ever dreamt of sailing the high seas a la Sinbad, live out your fantasy in the comfort of Subang SS15’s Ahoy Cafe. The cafe itself is an eclectic mix of different spaces and designs, all brought together by an overarching nautical theme which uses accents like heavy knotted ropes, buoys, oars, maps and more.

From a cosy corner with quirky mismatched furniture and adorable sea-themed embellishments to comfy floor seating for casual hangouts, a favourite space is the heavy wooden tables underneath a frosted skylight for a sea-like experience.
