Tired of visiting and re-visiting the same old cafes around your area? Since the current CMCO has been significantly relaxed, why not take the opportunity to explore other cafes for a change? We understand that there’s always a risk when going out at times like these. But then again, life has to go on as long as we maintain our SOPs. Enough said, here are the 8 Recent Cafes To Visit in Klang Valley listed in alphabetical order.
1) Awan @ Seksyen 22, PJ
Far from your usual cafe varieties, Awan keeps it somewhat private and low-profile. Customers are required to make a reservation in advance, especially for those who are planning to sit back and relax with a cup of coffee. Menus are mostly limited to imported coffee options and hand brews from the likes of Costa Rica, Ethiopia and El Salvador. Takeaways are available as well.
Address: 18a, Jalan 22/49, Seksyen 22, 46300 Petaling Jaya, Selangor.
2) Degree Coffee @ MAHSA Avenue
Pokok KL may be a popular hangout spot at MAHSA Avenue. But if you are looking for an alternative around the area, do check out this cosy little cafe called Degree Coffee. They serve familiar caffeinated choices like Americano, Caffe Latte and Cappuccino. Need something cold and refreshing? Try their Cold Brew series of Bottled Black or Bottled White, both of which are extracted with coarsely grounded medium-dark roast coffee beans for over 20 hours. Degree Coffee is also jumping on the bandwagon of this year’s Dalgona craze, offering different coffee, tea or fresh milk bases topped with Dalgona toffee.
Address: Unit K3-7, Block B, Level 3, MAHSA Avenue, Jalan Ilmu Off Jalan Universiti, 59100 Kuala Lumpur.
3) Gure Cafe @ Ara Damansara
As of now, Gure Cafe’s menu is limited to coffee and other beverages like espresso, cold brew and matcha latte. Customers can also pair their favourite drink with some of the baked goods like egg tarts and croissants. It’s a good place to hang out with friends or simply having some me-time, thanks to its clutter-free interior and overall minimalist cafe vibes.
Address: K-G-06, Jalan PJU 1A/41B, Pusat Perdagangan NZX, Ara Damansara, 47301 Petaling Jaya, Selangor.
4) Kacak Cafe & Gallery @ 10 Warung
Nestled within the food market of 10 Warung in Jalan Kampung Pandan, Kacak Cafe & Gallery prides itself in offering handcrafted coffee varieties from Brazil and Indonesia. Also, try their signature Nitrogen Draft Coffee, where Kacak brews their assorted Arabica coffee blends with ice over 24 hours. They offer some homemade sweet bites as well, from Kacak Kookies to Blueberry Keto Cake and Banana Bread with Walnuts/Chocolate Chips. While you are at it, remember to take a look at some of their cool artworks in the gallery.
Address: No. 18, Jalan Kampung Pandan off Jalan Tun Razak, 55100 Kuala Lumpur.
5) Sipping Corner @ Ampang Waterfront
Sipping Corner already has a branch in Puchong. So, if you have been there before, you know what to expect here: a plant nursery with a cosy little space for artisanal coffee and cakes. Think of it as a mini sanctuary with all the green plants surrounding the space, which gives you a sense of tranquillity. Keep in mind that Sipping Corner does not offer WiFi service here and remember to make a reservation since they have only limited seatings available.
Address: 1 & 2, Jalan AWF 3a, Ampang Waterfront, 68000 Ampang, Selangor.
6) Wú Coffee • Gallery @ Dataran Sunway
Wú keeps it raw and minimal with its industrial-like cafe interior, all predominantly grey concrete and exposed brick walls. Menu-wise, expect Japanese comfort foods like ramen, donburi and dumplings. Alternatively, chill out with some of their coffee and tea selections such as Gula Melaka Latte, Dirty Latte and Hojicha Latte.
Address: 38-2, Jalan PJU 5/11, Dataran Sunway, Kota Damansara, 47810 Petaling Jaya, Selangor.
7) Yewyew @ Bangunan Ka Yin Fui Kon
Yet another recently-opened minimalist cafe for your next cafe-hopping session, Yewyew has that homey ambience with window seats overlooking the street view of Jalan Sultan. They serve freshly-brewed coffees as well as delectable bites like red velvet cakes, scones and large chocolate chip cookies. At the time of writing, Yewyew is currently collaborating with Niko Neko Matcha for latte selections including matcha, houjicha and genmaicha.
Address: 63D, Ground Floor, Bangunan Ka Yin Fui Kon, Jalan Sultan, 50000 Kuala Lumpur.
8) Yue Coffee Bar @ Batu 11 Cheras
Mixing old-school charm with a touch of rustic modernity, Yue Coffee Bar certainly made good use of its Chinese new village setting. An ideal hangout for enjoying coffee, cake and even craft beer. And if you are here during the weekend, don’t forget to order some of their delicious beer snacks like crispy siu yuk and chicken gyoza.
Address: 114, Jalan 15, Batu 11 Cheras, 43200 Cheras, Selangor.
