With all the new cafes that has been popping up around Malaysia, asking where to go for breakfast/brunch/coffee seems like the most difficult question to answer nowadays. We however, recently developed a sneaky habit of liking to take photos of our food before we eat, so going to cafes with good food and awesome food presentation is always a win. Instagram is a great platform to share your pictures and memories so we thought we’d round up 20 cafes you can go that is “Insta-worthy”. All cafes are pork free unless mentioned.
