Klang Valley is home to an endless list of cafes that share two characteristics in common: gorgeously plated food and an Instagrammable friendly backdrop. I mean good food and a nice environment for a moment of relaxation, is that too much to ask for? Plus we could all do with a change of scenery right? So whether you’re looking for cafes filled with greenery, flowers, or even friendly furry felines, I’ve got you covered.

I’m breaking down the 10 most Instagrammable cafes in Klang Valley, so you can have your pastries and photos in a picturesque backdrop. You can thank me later!

1. Kenny Hills Baker

Serving what I believe is one of the best big breakfasts in town, Kenny Hills Bakers is practically the holy grail of restaurants for weekend brunches. Their Big Breakfast (RM36) features beef bacon, sauteed mushrooms, chicken sausage, homemade baked beans, sunny side up eggs and homemade hashbrowns. You can easily expect a minimum wait of an hour or more on weekends. And it’s not surprising to see why— the gorgeous wall art, perfect for photo taking of course, the greenery, rows of delicious crusty bread, freshly baked in-house pastries, and cakes. I mean what more could you ask for? Your tummy and gallery feed will be full and content by the end of your visit, that’s for sure.

“And all that I can see is just another yellow lemon tree”. The lyrics to Fool’s Garden Lemon Tree is all that comes to mind when I came across the newly launched The Lemon Tree cafe in Tropicana Avenue. 

Every corner here is Instagram-worthy, spanning across 1,700-square feet with high glass windows, dome ceiling, and a huge artificial lemon tree that is placed as the centrepiece of the sun-bathed, bright space. The Lemon Tree menu covers a lovely list of sweet & savoury pastries to substantial meals such as Egg-Ceptional Organic Omelette with Truffle & Portobello Mushroom (RM26)
