5) Feeka Coffee Roasters
Feeka Coffee Roasters is located on Jalan Mesui in KL, and like their Swedish inspired name that means to take “a break with a drink and some food”, chilling out is the main event here. So sit back and relax as you enjoy a cup of their coffee, maybe even indulge in a slice of cake or a pastry while you’re at it. The casual and comfortable environment will have you feeling right at home. Their Espresso based coffees are just the start of a fun and fuss-free indulgence, as you can even purchase beans or specialty brews from Feeka.
