Klang is home to bak kut teh and seafood. But this town has seen a steady growth of contemporary and old-school and yes, IG-worthy cafes over the last few years. From serving gourmet coffees to delectable pastries and comfort-food choices, we have rounded up a selected list of 8 Aesthetic Cafes Worth Visiting In Klang.
1) Bukku Cafe
Here’s a Japanese-inspired cafe perfect for those who want to enjoy good comfort food in a cosy environment. The word “Bukku” refers to “book” in Japanese and as you may guess, it features wooden shelves filled with novels and children’s books. They offer both indoor and outdoor seating areas, where the latter is located in a quaint garden surrounded by trees and wooden furniture. And what’s more, the garden area turns out to be a glasshouse with floor-to-ceiling windows and yes, it’s fully air-conditioned too.
Food-wise, do try their signature flaky-licious Salted Egg Yolk Croissant and the hearty Big Breakfast, just to name a few.
Address: No. 1, Jalan Singgahsana 4A/KU2, Bandar Bukit Raja, 41050 Klang, Selangor.
2) Cafe 1986
Cafe 1986’s Nordic-style setting, complete with predominantly wooden decor lends a welcoming vibe upon stepping into the cafe. The overall clean and fuss-free look even makes it an ideal place for a get-together with your friend(s) or your loved one.
When it comes to food, don’t miss their all-day breakfast meal of Shakshouka — a Middle Eastern-style tomato-based baked egg served with sourdough bread slices. Some of their other signature items on the menu include the slow-cooked Lamb Stew, BBQ Pork Chop with Rice and Japanese Curry Rice. They also serve high-tea sets for one or two pax, offering a pot of exquisite Newby tea of your choice and delectable pastries.
Address: 87-1, Jalan Mahogani 5/KS 7, Bandar Ambang Botanic, 41200 Klang, Selangor.
3) Coffee Ink
The cosy ambience together with its monochromatic walls and ceilings and pendant lights makes you feel right at home in Coffee Ink. As the name suggests, they serve good coffee here and equally good bites as well. Sitting on the top of a must-order item would be the Stuffed Chicken Bomb. It consists of grilled chicken breast wrapped with streaky bacon. And true to its name, they include assorted stuffing ingredients such as mushrooms and cheddar cheese. Each plate comes with mashed potatoes and sauteed vegetables.
Other recommended dishes include Spicy Bacon Pasta, Fish & Chips and Pulled Pork Sandwich and not to forget, their delicious choices of cakes.
Address: No. 19-1, Jalan Remia 3, Bandar Botanic, 41200 Klang, Selangor.
Beyond its run-of-the-mill industrial area at Persiaran Pulau Pinang, there’s a nice hangout spot called Better Together Cafe. Find the blue door and head on upstairs, where you will be greeted with a homey interior. It sure feels like a world apart from what we see from the outside. The predominantly white walls and plant decorations, in the meantime, add a nice touch to its overall setting.
Better Together Cafe serves comfort-food options in a fusion style, namely Creamy Curry Pasta and Kam Heong Seafood Pasta. Not to mention the Oppa Chiki Bao — a stuffed bao with a Korean twist of fried chicken served with crinkle-cut fries. Remember to leave some room to try one of their homemade cakes as well.
Address: 22, Persiaran Pulau Pinang, Kampung Sungai Pinang Dalam, 41400 Klang, Selangor.
5) Cozy Coffee
A cosy space, indeed. Minimalist black-and-white decor with a nice touch of wooden accent and pendant lights round up the look. Have a cuppa, where they have several choices like Hazelnut Latte and Rose Latte, complete with gorgeous latte art.
For bites, Cozy Coffee offers hearty mains like Pan Seared Salmon, Big Breakfast and the cheekily-named You Are Nuts. The latter is actually a crispy chicken chop uniquely served with thick peanut sauce and fries on the side. Waffle lovers can look forward to the cafe’s savoury options like Chicken Waffzza and Seafood Waffzza. Prefer the typically sweet choices instead? They got that covered too, namely the Mangonificent, where you will get a waffle with fresh mango, mango sauce and ice cream.
It’s hard to miss Coffee Origins, given its bright yellow exterior on the first floor. Entering the cafe, the overall interior has that distinctive sense of cosiness of home sweet home. No doubt an ideal spot for chilling or even enjoying some me-time.
Given its name, they offer medium-roasted coffee selections covering the classics (e.g. Americano, Cafe Latte) to contemporary and specials. For the latter two, some of their recommended ones include Origins Gula Melaka Latte, Cafe Mocha and Hawaiian Iced Latte. And if you want some bites, they have options like assorted waffles and pasta.
Address: 98-1, Jalan Mahogani 1, Bandar Botanic, 41200 Klang, Selangor.
It’s like stepping into the past upon entering Hakkee Cafeteria. The overall old-school decor complete with lots of hanging photos and nostalgia-tinged knick-knacks dominates the look of this cafe.
Hakkee Cafeteria’s speciality, of course, lies in its Hakka cuisine. Among the food items available on the menu includes the must-try Claypot Hakkee Abacus-Yam. They also serve traditional kuihs, homemade Hakka-style desserts and the quintessential lei cha (thunder tea rice).
Address: 174G, Jalan Kepayang, Kawasan 17, 41150 Klang, Selangor.

Looking at their menu, they offer a mix of Western and Asian cuisines to choose from. Familiar choices include Big Breakfast, Chicken Maryland and Spaghetti Bolognese Chicken. For those who prefer local noodle and rice dishes, they have everything from Fried Kuey Teow to Cantonese-Style Seafood Yee Mee, Sweet & Sour Chicken Rice and Egg Fried Rice.
