Level Up Your Brunch with These 7 Cafes and Restaurants in Kuala Lumpur

It’s your day off: you wake up a little bit later than usual, and you feel like pampering yourself with good food. Why not go for a brunch? Kuala Lumpur or KL is abundant with places for brunch, and you might not be sure where to go. Here are seven brunch spots in KL you might want to try.

Yeast Bistronomy

This elegant little corner in Jalan Telawi 2, Bangsar, is definitely a must-try. Yeast Bistronomy serves crunchy, warm croissants and other French pastries made authentically by the boulangerie. Enjoy the ambience of a Parisenne café right in KL while indulging yourself with their outstanding dishes.

For brunch, you can pick a Ham & Cheese Croissant with Garden Salad. Or if eggs are an essential part of brunch for you, try the Oeufs Pochés Benedictine au Jambon de Dinde. The restaurant has limited capacity, so it’s good to come early or make a reservation beforehand.

Botanica + Co

Bringing an urban garden concept, Botanica + Co in Bangsar South presents you with a lush ambience with trees and plants nicely put in the setting. The place is quite spacious; you can enjoy eating out with friends and family here. Still, it’s a renowned Instagram-worthy place, so expect crowds, especially on weekends.

This luscious restaurant provides a wide array of dishes, including an exclusive weekend brunch menu served from 9.30 AM to 4 PM. Do try their Scrambled Stack: scrambled eggs, turkey bacon, king oyster mushroom, toast, with salad and tater tots. Sandwiches, pasta, and pizzas are also available. Prices are relatively more in the high range but well-compensated with a generous portion of food.

Lisette’s Café and Bakery

Another Bangsar gem worth visiting. Lisette’s Café and Bakery spoils both the eyes and stomachs of their customers. This exquisite spot presents a homey, flowery decoration for you to feel at home. Don’t forget to take out your phone for a selfie in front of Lisette’s well-known pink flower wall.

When it comes to brunch, Lisette’s has a special Sunday Brunch Buffet you need to try. The buffet offers a bunch of different goods, from local tastes like Nasi Lemak to western-style breakfast choices. Since beverages are additional, you can opt for coffee or non-coffee ones. The bakery also makes their bread and pastries daily, so make sure to indulge yourself in their freshly baked produce when you come to visit.

Huckleberry Food and Fare

If you’re in Bukit Damansara and craving a good brunch, Huckleberry can be a great choice. It’s a family-owned café and bakery serving many pastries along with other dishes and beverages. They offer a breakfast menu every day until 11 AM. Huckleberry is quite a popular dining spot, so get ready for queues in busy hours.

Not sure what to order from their long list of options? Eggs Benedicts and Huckleberry Breakfast Burrito are a safe bet for breakfast. The coffees and cakes are definitely worth trying as well. If you want to eat healthily, Huckleberry also caters to specific diets like Paleo and Keto.

Breakfast Thieves

When a meal is in the restaurant’s name, you know it’s a real deal. Originating in Melbourne, Breakfast Thieves in Bangsar was highly anticipated even long before its opening. Stop by this café for a pleasant brunch experience. The place offers both indoor and outdoor settings; make sure you get your sunscreen ready if you prefer to sit outside.

Start with a refreshing homemade frizzy like Berry Berry & Thyme for that sour punch. Then continue your brunch with hearty meals such as Gypsy King (citrus cured salmon with poached eggs and mushroom) and The Breakfast Chain (soft boiled eggs with berry yogurt). If you come later in the afternoon, their Uncle Foo’s Fiery Crab Burger can be a choice for you too.

Wizards at Tribeca

This café is a popular weekend brunch place in Jalan Imbi. Wizards at Tribeca serves a minimalistic design for its interior, producing a nice, cozy ambience for you to enjoy your meal. The wide windows allow a lot of sunlight to enter; better photos guaranteed! The place is open from 10 AM to 6 PM (Mon-Thu) and 10 PM (Fri-Sun).

The coffees made by award-winning baristas here are not to be missed. You can pair it with a piece of cake. For the meal, check out Taro Mish Mash for your brunch dish—a classic breakfast combination of poached eggs with sourdough bread, topped with avocado pesto, tomato salsa, and feta cheese. Unagi Benedict is also a good choice: egg benedict with a unique Japanese twist.

A Toast Breakfast and Juice Bar

Found in an unassuming spot of Jalan Pudu, A Toast Breakfast and Juice Bar is a quirky hidden gem for a good breakfast. This tiny café serves various options ranging from toast, salad, juices to heavier dishes. Do give their signature meals like Bamboo Charcoal Toast and Flossy Style French Toast a try. For the drink, the Dragon fruit + Grape + Apple juice is highly suggested as well.

The place is a 7-minute walking distance from Pudu LRT station. Yet, if you plan to dine in, it’s better to avoid busy hours as the seating capacity is very limited. The prices here are affordable, so don’t miss out on this brunch spot!
