Instagrammable Cafes In KL You’d Love To Hang Out In | Clozette

Malaysia is known for its food. But with the blossoming of the cafe industry, it's about to be known for their quaint places, too. And did we mention that these spots don't only have delectable selections for your caffeine fix but also interiors that are to die for? Ahead, the spots you need to visit in Kuala Lumpur if you're hankering for a shot... of caffeine and one from a camera.

Merchant’s Lane

Nestled on a small street just beyond Chinatown is a little oasis where you can kick back and enjoy a great meal amidst lush greens with a little old-world flair. The interior here focuses on preserving the beauty of colonial buildings and enhancing the nuances rather than replacing it with something sleek and modern.

Pulp by Papa Palheta

A prominent fixture in the Malaysian coffee scene, Pulp is the go-to cafe if you need a shot to brighten up your disposition. In addition to great coffee, this cafe features a minimal yet rustic look with clean lines and wooden furniture. Flaunt a more extravagant #OOTD and be sure to stand out against their stone façade and muted green surroundings.

Kopenhagen Coffee 

Inspired by the cafe culture in Denmark, Kopenhagen promises to be a bright and airy locale, with ample natural light for that perfect Instagram shot. Well equipped with experienced baristas situated in their open kitchen concept, as well as warm, friendly staff, you certainly won’t be disappointed during your visit!

Breakfast Thieves 

This cafe took styling advice from its counterpart in Melbourne to bring customers a space with high ceilings and wide windows, ensuring the best conditions for that perfect food flatlay. Other elements include wood structures, gravel pathways and concrete flooring for that millennial modern look.

VCR Cafe 

Visiting VCR is a pleasurable thing; with its dark frames and cosy interior, you’d be hard pressed not to go in for coffee and cake just to bask in the warmth of the place. The outlet at Jalan Galloway pulls customers with the promise of a great roast, beautiful food presentations, and minimalist backdrops worthy of any Instagram appearance.
