1. Outpost Mont Kiara

Mont Kiara welcomes a new coffee spot powered by Outcast Coffee, crepe cakes and a small selection of savoury pastries – think shepherd’s pie and soon, bagel sandwiches. 

Five of Kuala Lumpur’s finest speakeasies: millennial fun from steampunk to cabaret

2. Anther & Stigma Floral Cafe

Could florist-cafes be the next trend in Kuala Lumpur? 

One thing's for sure though – Plaza Arkadia is fast becoming a foodies’ paradise. 

Being so new to the scene, the variety at Anther & Stigma isn’t vast, but it is enough to sate your appetite on your first visit, with options such as the salted gula melaka granola bowl, cakes, sandwiches and pasta. 


Messy Monday. See you on Sunday.

4. Bukku Cafe

It’s not newly opened, but it most certainly is quite a hidden gem (at the time of writing). 

From the front, it boasts a monochromatic façade. 

Enter through the doors and it’s a party of warm, wooden interiors. 

The food here is decent – try the salted egg croissants – but it's really the quiet, cosy ambience that will make you want to stay.
