Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably know that Bangsar is dubbed as the hub of gorgeous “atas” cafes. We’re here to show you exactly why that’s true! The food here can tend to be a tad expensive, so come to these cafes in Bangsar when you’re looking for a girls day out in the city full of cute outfits, Instagrammable interiors and food that’s worth every single cent spent! 😍
From miniature “garden in the city” like spots to artsy plated desserts you’d normally only be able to experience at five-star hotels, scroll through our carefully curated list to find out which should make it next on your list of weekend must-visits! 😃
1. Alexis Bistro (Jalan Telawi 3, Bangsar Baru)
Stylish interior, warm hospitality, delicious food & fine jazz create the renowned Alexis experience in Jalan Telawi. This popular cafe in Bangsar is infamous for its pavlova. It’s executed so well that even non-pavlova lovers will be converted by its layers of meringue – delicately crispy on the outside with an impossibly melt-in-the-mouth fluffy interior. The layers of cream might be slightly on the generous side, but it’s freshly made and ever so light on your taste buds. Of course, the cherry on top has to be the magical spread of sweet ripe-to-perfection strawberries and blueberries covering the surface. 💕
If you’re coming just for that, make sure you call in advance to prevent disappointment! 😃

The darkly lit interior is simple, but still attracts crowds who come from miles away for the good food and coffee. Speaking of coffee, make sure you don’t miss out on their pride and glory – the coffee. But what if you’re in the mood for something rich, creamy and…retro? Give The King a try! Inspired by the legendary Elvis Presley, the cake is chock-full of banana and peanut butter elements, an ode to the late, great legend. 😎

9. Fancy Breakfast Club (Jalan Telawi 2, Bangsar Baru)
True to its name, FBC really portrays inspiration from the classic movie “Breakfast Club” with its black-and-white checkered tiles and long, communal tables akin to high-school canteens. Food here is however, nothing close to the food served in school canteens. 😯
Unless, there are schools that serve breakfast platters with poached eggs, mashed avo, baked beans, bacon, ham, hash browns… you get it. Patrons rave about the gorgeous, minimalist interior with natural sunlight streaming in from every angle, so if you need to get that perfect picture, here’s the perfect place to snap away! 😍
