City life tends to be overwhelming and stressful, which is why it’s nice to take a break once in a while from the usual hustle and bustle. Here are 8 Nature-Themed Cafes To Visit in Klang Valley for a mini nature-inspired getaway.
1) The Farm Foodcraft @ The Sphere, Bangsar South City
Dining at The Farm Foodcraft has never been so inviting, thanks to its well-lit restaurant within the floor-to-ceiling glasshouse setting. Plenty of hanging vines atop the high ceiling as well as other greenery fills both indoor and outdoor spaces, making it a good place to unwind with friends and family. Food-wise, The Farm Foodcraft adopts the farm-to-table concept, complete with their own urban farm in the restaurant itself, which means you can expect the freshest produce available! Their menu is extensive, covering everything from starters (Pumpkin & Orange Soup) to mains (Signature BBQ Whole Spring Chicken, The Farm’s Beef Burger) and dessert (Honeycomb Brioche Toast, The Farm’s Signature Souffle).
Address: Unit G-1 & G-2, Level Ground, The Sphere No.1, Avenue 1 Bangsar South City, Jalan Kerinchi, 59200 Kuala Lumpur. | Opening Hours: Daily 10.30 am to 10 pm | Tel: 03-2242 0964
2) Sipping Corner by Plant & Pot Studio @ Bandar Puteri Puchong
Here’s an oasis of a cafe filled with lots of greenery and we mean, lots of them. It almost feels like entering an urban forest filled with various plants and flowers. The truth is, the cafe happens to be part of the Plant & Pot Studio — the latter is actually a plant nursery that not only sells the greens but also offers monthly workshops. But if you are mainly here for the cafe, Sipping Corner provides signature drinks like Creamy Coffee and Gula Melaka Matcha Latte as well as filter/hand brew coffees from different parts of the world. They serve cakes as well, namely burnt cheesecake and Earl Grey Grapefruit cake.
Address: 78G, Jalan Puteri 5/5, Bandar Puteri, 47100 Puchong, Selangor. | Opening Hours: Mon & Wed-Sun 9 am to 6 pm
3) Botanica + Co @ Bangsar South
A cafe that lives up to its name, with Botanica + Co’s greenery-heavy setting filled with various pots and plants both indoor and outdoor. Their menu, in the meantime, consists of fusion grubs made from quality ingredients. If you are here with friends or family, opt for their Sharing Platter varieties such as Spiced Lamb or Broken Chilli Fries. They have others as well, namely sandwiches (The Ultimate Steak Sandwich), soups (Slipper Lobster Bisque) and mains (The Bo+Co Big Breakfast, Arrabbiata Rigatoni). Pizza lovers can look forward to either meat, seafood or vegetarian options like Chicken Tikka, The Fisherman and Green Goddess.

4) Pokok KL @ MAHSA Avenue
An Instagram-friendly cafe situated inside MAHSA University? Well, as unlikely as it may sound, that’s exactly what you’ll find at Pokok (or “tree” in the Malay language). And true to its name, the cafe literally has a tree outside, where customers can opt to dine or have a drink outdoors. But it’s their indoor setting that deserves most of the attention — a floor-to-ceiling glasshouse adorned with hanging pots and brick-wall panels. With plenty of glass around, this makes the cafe a perfect spot for taking photos. When it comes to food, expect both local (Nasi Lemak Platter) as well as fusion (Chili Padi Pesto Pasta) and Western (Smoked Salmon Benedict, Carbonara Pasta) varieties.
Address: MAHSA Avenue, Block B, Jalan Elmu, off, Jalan Universiti, 59100 Kuala Lumpur. | Opening Hours: Tues 9 am to 7 pm & Mon, Wed-Sun 9 am to 9 pm | Tel: 03-8408 1811
5) Aether Cafe @ TTDI
Expect plenty of greenery filling in both the indoor and outdoor space of Aether Cafe, a somewhat hidden spot since it happens to be located inside Pusat Kreatif Kanak-Kanak Tuanku Bainun. Their menu isn’t exactly extensive but just sufficient for those looking both healthy and comfort foods such as Vegetarian Basil Pasta, Matcha Rice with Grilled Fish and Tropic Smoothie Bowl.
Address: 48, Jalan Tun Mohd Fuad, Taman Tun Dr Ismail, 60000 Kuala Lumpur. | Opening Hours: Mon, Wed-Sat 10 am to 8 pm & Sun 9 am to 7 pm | Tel: 03-2856 0416
6) Tujoh Cafe @ Section 17, PJ
If there’s one thing about Tujoh Cafe that impresses the most, it has to be their high-ceiling courtyard setting filled with old TVs and radios. The added greenery makes it a perfect hangout regardless of chilling with your friends or simply enjoying some me-time. Expect a wide array of dishes and beverages here, with the likes of Avocado Toast, Soft Shell Crab Creamy Tom Yum Pasta, Beef Petite Burger and Pandan Iced Latte.
Address: 617, Jalan 17/10, Seksyen 17, 46400 Petaling Jaya, Selangor. | Opening Hours: Mon-Thurs 11 am to 11 pm / Fri-Sat 11 am to 12 pm & Sun 11 am to 10 pm | Tel: 03-7932 3611
7) Lisette’s Cafe & Bakery @ Bangsar
Two words: cosy and homey. And that’s pretty much sums up Lisette’s Cafe & Bakery, as both the interior and exterior have a nice touch of greenery. For the former, it comes embellished with colourful hand-painted murals atop the ceiling. Chill out with a cup of freshly-brewed coffee or tea or simply opt for alcoholic beverages. They have comfort food as well, from sandwiches to pastas and freshly-baked bread & pastries.
