From kopitiams to hipster cafes, café culture has been a crucial part of Malaysia’s food culture. Perfect for a little midday break, cafes offer a little escape from our hectic life, being an ideal spot to chill and get together with some friends. With how popular café culture is, you can find a café at almost any malls or corner of your local neighbourhood. When we mention Klang, the image of Bak Kut Teh may first come to mind, but that’s not all Klang is famous for. In recent years, Klang has also become a hotspot for cafes, where numerous stylish cafes have begun to surface, especially in areas like Bandar Botanic Klang. With so many cafes available in Klang, you would never run out of cafes to explore!
Now let us introduce you to some of the best cafes in Klang!
1. Cafe 1986
If you’ve ever been to Shah Alam’s 1986 Espresso Bar, you might be surprised that they originally came from Cafe 1986. Cafe 1986 can be described as a warm and casual eatery where you can bring friends and family to hang out. However, there’s a different vibe depending on where the customer sits. If you fancy something chic and comfortable, you can opt for their sofas or choose outdoor dining if you’d prefer fresh air.
For their menu, Cafe 1986 offers a variety of Western and Asian cuisine. One of our favourites is their Crispy Chicken Ciabatta, a burger that’s served with ciabatta bread instead. Take a bite, and you’ll taste the crispiest buttered fried chicken ever. The combination of a fried chicken patty goes perfect with absorbent fragrant ciabatta, refreshing wasabi and lettuce for a balanced meal.

Being a simple dish comprised of a creamy French mustard sauce poured generously over seared chicken alongside a side of mashed potatoes and spinach.

3. C U Latte (by Cheong Foh)
If the name Cheong Foh sounds familiar to you, that’s because Cheong Foh is a renowned Kopitiam which has graced us with delicious coffee for a good number of years. C U Latte is a modernised version of Cheong Foh Kopitiam, adding a hipster twist to the classic Kopitiam that we are all familiar with. If you are a fan of local Kopitiam snacks like kaya butter toast and local kopi, you can find both of those in this case along with other newer menu items such as honey baked chicken and flat white—this café a mesh-up of both the old and new café culture.
Besides the mains, this café also offers a wide selection to choose from, which gives you the perfect closing to your meal. One of their bestselling cakes includes the Lemon Cheesecake, which is perfectly paired with a cup of coffee as well.
