Nara Kitchen & Co., also partially owned by the people behind The Good Batch down the road, is a white and bright space for those looking for healthier options. Their food cannot be defined by a single cuisine, but rest assured you'll be able to fill your tummy without feeling too guilty. Go for their Nara Donburi (RM35) which comprises Japanese rice, torched salmon and a 63-degree egg cooked to perfection. Pair that with some poutine (RM24) on the side if you have somebody to share it, the portion is massive!

Talk about hidden cafes — this one is located within the Bangsar region but well-hidden from the Telawi crowd next to The Co. This is a great spot for a little cafe getaway if you are up for exploring the less-visited area of Bangsar or are in need of some quality time to yourself. The highlight of Bean Reserve would be their satisfying, cooling coffee soft-serve ice creams that go for RM8 and above per cup.

Unlike most cafes, Wild Sheep Chase happens to be the first in Malaysia to serve soufflés — a light French cake known for its hard-to-achieve fluffiness. Paired with a choice of orange sauce or osmanthus maple syrup, and served with a ball of homemade sorbet, their vanilla soufflé (RM15) has already captured the hearts of many first visitors. Finish off with their earl grey milk tea (RM10) topped with lemon zest for a warm and fresh finish. If you're familiar with the author Haruki Murakami, the owners are fans of his books, hence, the name Wild Sheep Chase.

If you're looking for something different, go for their Thai milk tea ice cream.

Not a fan of coffee? This new cafe in SS15, Subang Jaya focuses on tea rather the typical coffee. You'll not find coffee on the menu so if you're up for a place that serves a variety of teas ranging from mango sencha to chai tea, this tea lab is your spot! As if this concept isn't hipster enough, they also have tea pots with abstract art on them for you artsy fartsy ones. The best time to visit would be when it's raining outside while you're all warm and cosy indoors. Go for the sencha green tea flavoured with dried strawberries (RM12 per pot) for something fruity and refreshing!

If you fancy the sound of purring while you eat and drink, here's the spot for you cat lovers. Purradise Cat Cafe has a range of sandwiches (RM15 each) and smoothies to choose from while you switch between playing with their cats and enjoying eating around them. Go for their chicken pesto sandwich or salami and pair that with any one of their healthy smoothies with soy milk (great news for lactose intolerants!). If you're just there for the cats, order a smoothie for RM15 which entitles you to a full hour with them!
