1. Yue Coffee Bar
When we came across Yue Coffee Bar, we immediately fell in love with the unique interior and ambience it offers. It is a library and cafe located in a rustic, yet welcoming Chinese Village that reminds you of your grandmother’s kampung.
Not only do they serve artisanal coffee; both espresso based and pour over from some of the top local coffee roasters in Malaysia, they also serve a variety of brunch and snacks selection such as sourdoughs, croissant sandwiches and gyoza!
Besides this space being a unique place for breakfast and lunch, we can totally imagine ourselves sipping a cuppa here with an old book from their shelves, feeling all nostalgic as if we were back in our grandparents’ hometown!
Address: 114, Jalan 15, Batu 11 Cheras, 43200 Cheras, Selangor
Operation Hours: 8am-6pm daily (Closed on Tuesdays)
2. Wú Cafe Gallery
Introducing Wú, a new neighbourhood cafe located at the busy shop-lot streets of Kota Damansara. The space and ambience is inspired by the name of the cafe itself which derived from a Chinese character that defines “nothingness”. Hence, the minimalist concept of the space with a consistent grey monochrome colour tone interior.
Wú is popular for their “dirty latte”. It is basically espresso served on chilled milk, curated to be consumed without stirring the concoction to allow drinkers enjoy the aroma and flavour of espresso followed by the cold fresh milk as a sweet ending.
They also offer a Japanese inspired menu with a variety of ramen and donburi dishes on the menu that looks absolutely delicious!
Address: 38-2, Jalan PJU 5/11, Dataran Sunway, Kota Damansara, 47810 Petaling Jaya, Selangor.
Operation Hours: Wednesday-Monday, 10am-6pm.
3. Dou Dou Bake
Does Dou Dou Bake sound familiar?
This bakery cafe is definitely no stranger to cafe hoppers. From the flaky pastry-hype to the long queue crowding at their entrance as early as 6am in the morning, no doubt this cafe is a must-visit.
Legend says: right now, there are still people queuing for a seat just to dine in Dou Dou Bake!
Not only do they serve a variety of scrumptious-looking french pastries, they also have a range of breakfast dishes for your brunch fix, cheese platter and natural wine for your fancy taste and of course, a wide selection of artisanal coffee for your caffeine fix!

4. Planter Chin x Taman Hati
Planter Chin, is not one ordinary cafe. It is (literally) located in a garden; Taman Hati. A space where you can dine with AND shop for plants! Opened not too long ago, this space is a collaboration between Planter Chin and Taman Hati who made use of their lovely space to create a garden-like ambience for visitors to enjoy a unique dine-in experience.
Being a small space that can occupy that many customers, their food menu is also limited, yet promising with selections such as hotcakes, toasts and quinoa salad.
Not to mention, they are also serving a variety of desserts such as cakes and donuts, as well as artisanal coffee which is a must. Definitely worth a visit!

Previously located in the heart of KL, Petaling Street, Hide and Seek has now relocated to the city of Petaling Jaya with a brand new look! Their fun and quirky furniture are really eye-catching, making their space irresistible for some instagrammable photos.
Not only is the space extraordinary and adorable, the coffee and food served at Hide and Seek are also irresistible! Their menu consists of a selection of rice bowls such as braised pork and Japanese char siew (non-halal) that has received much praise from visitors.
Of course, they serve some of the best specialty coffee in town with coffee beans roasted by one of the top local coffee roasters in Malaysia ensuring that coffee lovers leave the place content and happy.

With the new VCR Stacks that recently opened not too long ago in Mont Kiara, this particular branch focuses on artisanal sweet and savoury sandwiches such as egg sando and nut butter jelly which mind you, sounds really tempting!

7. Sunday Coffee & Cakes
Tucked quietly in the neighbourhood of Taman Bukit Indah, Sunday Coffee is surely one hidden gem. They offer mainly sandwiches, pastries that are made in-house as well as coffee.
Although their menu is simple and straightforward, visitors are often surprised by the flavour they can offer in their dishes such as the egg Tamagoyaki Sando and white toast served with seaweed butter.
Visitors are also welcomed by a wide selection of pastry by the counter that many raved over such as their brownies, madeleines, banana bread and more!
However, please do yourself a favour and try their amazing home-made tiramisu which will leave you wanting for more! Pair it with a cup of pour over coffee and we ensure you, it will be a perfect Sunday for you to spend here at Sunday Coffee!
