5) Pickle & Fig @ TTDI
Pickle & Fig serves decent coffee, but may not be the latest and best coffee place in TTDI. Being shortlisted as one of the Best Healthy Eats by TimeOut KL 2013 and 2014, this has somehow reveal why they don’t get the Best Coffee crown – smoothies, sandwiches mixed and matched using unexpected healthy ingredients, has proudly steal the limelight. However, they are performing better as days go by, hence it is worth trying out a cuppa of their latte or cappucino in your visit.

8)Three Little Birds Coffee @ D7 Sentul
Three Little Birds Coffee is opened by Artisan Roast, the expert coffee roaster in Malaysia. Though located in Sentul East D7, the still-in-the-mist-of-developing area with sky-high offices, shops and open-air courtyard atrium area, Three Little Birds is unexpectedly busy with a short waiting required during our visit. While coffee is undeniably good, Three Little Birds Coffee also highly recommends their Affogato with Salted Caramel Ice Cream and Nutella Bun, the East meets West sweet treat that will surely make you go sugar-loaded.

9)VCR @ Pudu
Morning or night, ambience in VCR café counts. From outside, it is a two-stories corner building, fully painted in dark grey with no obvious shop sign, so you can easily miss this place out along Jalan Galloway, Pudu (Beisde Swiss Garden Hotel & Residences). This humble café started secrety, but their good coffee has been spread by word of mouth, surprisingly full house when we visited near 10pm on one Saturday night. Pushing the door in we are welcomed with an elongated space, more spacious upstairs with al-fresco area, wooden floorings, rattan chairs, etc. The whole café is calm and inviting, deeply surrounded by the aroma of coffee. Coffee is the highlights here, and don’t miss the famous The King- a cake with layers of banana sponge cake, peanut butter & chocolate cream and banana.

Pudu, 50150 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

10)Aku Cafe & Gallery @ Jalan Panggong
Located along Jalan Panggong, Aku Cafe & Gallery is a coffee place that delivers calm, tranquil environment, putting huge contrast to the hustle and bustle of KL city. Menu is kept simple with coffee, tea and light bites such as cakes and sandwiches. Nonetheless, everything is dedicatedly prepared, embraced with love. With the name Cafe & Gallery, no doubt you will expect artistic art exhibition, or movie screening occasionally to enhance your art + coffee experience in this relaxing cafe.
