If you’re looking for an aesthetically-striking café at which to have brunch with your friends – we gotchu! I mean, we all can’t just sip our overpriced coffees at some random restaurant – nope! We all need to pick a place that is so aesthetically pleasing that we just have to pick up our phones and strike a pose to post on our Instagram accounts.
Yup! That’s the way to go – so, here are our top picks for the most aesthetically-pleasing cafés in the Klang Valley!
Surround yourself in the most serene ambience, filled to the brim with all types of plants, at this Ampang café. Sippin Corner is both a café and a plant shop, called Plant & Pot Studio, that sells different kinds of plants – from succulents to terrariums. It’s such a wholesome vibe to be in and makes you forget that you live in a concrete jungle. The cakes and coffees served are deliciously decadent and the price points are fair.
Address: 1-1, Jalan Awf 3a, Ampang Waterfront, 68000 Ampang, Selangor
If you are a fan of lattes and watches – this café is for you. Located in the heart of Bangsar, Vernakular Store is not your ordinary café. Nope, it’s also a concept store that sells a ton of watches for patrons to browse through and maybe purchase a lux timepiece. However, if you’re just intending to hop from one café to another, don’t miss out on this one, as the minimalist vibe will have you stick around for longer than you think.
The earthy and quaint interior, complete with a stone-covered floor, may be just what you’re searching for. What’s a café without a delectable dessert? As you take in the atmosphere of Vernakular Store, try their smores brownies and enjoy some lattes.

Light Capture by H.Ö.N
Light Capture Café gives off the impression that you’ve lived in Manhattan for quite some time. This café gives the building the appearance of being a part of the New York loft that we all want. The café’s interior is bathed in darkness, which is complemented by natural illumination, oozing tranquillity. The grunge design contrasts beautifully with the light that floods the space, nearly creating a halo appearance. It’s the ideal spot for a small bite to eat with your friends while snapping the most Instagrammable photos to adorn your feed.
Address: 81 & 83, Jalan Tun H S Lee, City Centre, 50000 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur
At Mary Jane KL, you’ll find yourself in a pastel pink utopia. This café, which is decked up with magnificent blossoms, ranging from pinks to peaches, will make your heart skip a beat. The walls are decorated with rows and rows of roses from top to bottom, making it ideal for a romantic supper with your sweetheart. To complement the pinks, the stylish furnishings have a touch of gold and white throughout, making it the most attractive café in all of Kuala Lumpur.
Address: 106, Jalan Petaling, City Centre, 50000 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur
Two differing spaces with minimalist aesthetics? We’re on our way there! Tujoh Café is located in PJ and is typically packed with loyal customers due to its excellent service, scrumptious food, and appealing atmosphere. The café contains both indoor and outdoor areas, and the architectural details largely consist of vintage ornamental elements set against a concrete backdrop. Customers are drawn to this café by the natural light that shines down from above, which is picture perfect from every angle.

Plan B @ TRX
Plan B is well-known, but they’ve lately expanded their franchise and opened a new café near the Tun Razak Exchange building. It’s modern but simple, with glasshouse walls that allow an abundance of natural light to flood the space. Plus, when the Exchange 106 Tower lights up at night, the vista is just breathtaking. Their dishes and drinks are delightfully divine, and their pastries, notably their cakes, are just delicious.
Address: Kafe TRX City, Jln. Barat, Tun Razak Exchange, 55188 Kuala Lumpur, Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur
