The cafe scene may populate most KL and PJ areas but the Shah Alam township of Setia Alam is no slouch either. From brewed coffee to local and Western dishes, we got them all covered here. That being said, here are the Top 10 Cafes in Setia Alam!
1) Project 1.0
A minimalist little space, Project 1.0 keep things simple with just a few chairs and tables around. Their menu, in the meantime, consists of mainly coffee as well as pastries and breakfast sets. Among their popular items include the Simple Breakfast on-the-go set, which comes with a pastry (croissant/Belgian waffle) and beverage of your choice. If you prefer non-coffee varieties, they have recommended options including Matcha and Hojicha Lattes from the famous Niko Neko Matcha.
No prizes for guessing what KOPI is mainly known for, with their signature coffee topping the list on the menu. Using quality beans sourced from Brazil, Guatemala, and Indonesia, expect aromatic coffee which has a subtle hint of nutty and fruity flavour. Their coffee is medium-roasted for a more balanced, yet non-overpowering taste upon every sip. Other than coffee, some of their recommended items worth trying include Avocado Milkshake, Swedish Meatball (12, 16 or 20 pcs) and Signature Latin Chicken Chop.
3) BUCOLIC Cafe & Catering
Fancy some hearty Italian cuisines? BUCOLIC Cafe & Catering particularly specialises in pizza and pasta using fresh and homemade ingredients. Sitting on top of their list of must-order items would be All-Time Favourite, a 10-inch thin crust pizza consisting of chopped tomatoes, basil leaves and the oozy goodness of mozzarella cheese. Some of the other recommended Italian dishes include Parmesan Mozzarella Cheese Pizza and Carbonara Linguine with Crispy Chicken Ham. They serve burgers too, namely the Double Cheese Beef with Wild Mushroom Burger but those who prefer the meatless option can go for the Portobello Mushroom with Caramelised Onion Burger.
4) Lush Cafe
Serving a mix of Asian and Western cuisines, Lush Cafe covers assorted choices like Aglio Smoke Duck/Grilled Chicken, Carbonara Chicken Ham and Nasi Lemak with Grilled Chicken. For the latter, they eschew the usual santan (coconut milk) in favour of healthier yet aromatic pandan for their rice. For a sweet finish, do try their homemade tart and burnt cheesecake.
5) Pan & Wine Setia Alam
Pan & Wine offers plenty of choices here when comes to Western and Italian cuisines. Start off with their nourishing Wild Mushroom Soup or Roasted Pumpkin Soup, both of which are blended using fresh ingredients.

Moving on to the entrée, among their recommended dishes include Roasted Sirloin Steak, Pork Bacon Carbonara, and Pan Roasted Pork Chop. They also serve comfort food like pizza, sandwiches, and burgers. Don’t forget to end your meal with one of their scrumptious desserts, notably their Signature Homemade Brownies topped with vanilla ice cream.
