While cafe culture is mushrooming in Malaysia, the ambiance and atmosphere of a cafe has become key to attracting customers aside from the quality of the food served. Some say the ambiance will make the food taste better, which we agree as the tone of a cafe can affect the mood of the customers. Here's a list of Instagram-worthy cafes to visit in KL & PJ. 

1) Merchant's Lane

Merchants Lane is a cafe and restaurant that exhibits the transverse between local charm and modern culture. Located at the heritage row of Petaling Street, you'll find Merchant's Lane old yet charming. I particularly like the outdoor section with the aged-peeling-walls coming in as the backdrop. Merchant's Lane serves a range of East-meets-West recipes and beverages that are distinctive and pleasing.

Located at Sri Hartamas, The Prep Room serves good coffee and distinguish choices of food. The Prep Room gives you a bright ambiance with its minimalist concept. Another thing we like about The Prep Room is the menu which is filled with whimsical hand-drawn illustrations.

Getting There:

6) Square Q Cafe

Square Q is a snack that looks like waffle but not a waffle. No joke. It is instead a Taiwanese-inspired waffle-shaped dessert which is made of pure milk. Square Q is crispy on the outside and chewy within. Imagine its base texture to be something like Japanese Mochi. Square Q Cafe is also pork-free and lard-free cafe. 

Getting There:

7) Tsujiri

At Tsujiri, the Instagram-worthy bit would be its range of unique green tea desserts. 'TSUJIRI' is a tea brand that is highly praised in Japan, with 155 years of history in Green Tea making. For Matcha lovers, Tsujiri is where you would want to be. Tsujiri uses traditional methods to ensure best tastes and aroma in its green tea desserts and drinks.

8) Palladium Cafe

Palladium Cafe is no stranger to many by now with its signature cute little glass house becoming a local tourist attraction. Palladium Cafe can be found at EcoWorld Gallery located along Jalan Kuching, next to Tesco. Cakes and coffee are what you can find here. I would go for its Palladium Signature Petite and Lemon Tart.
