Repost: 50 Top Cafes in KL - Part 1/5

Because me and my husband always have this question " where should we go for breakfast" on the day when I am on leave... (it's so hard to get leave from the Klinik Kesihatan recently due to "lack of MO" in the KK, which i still don't understand why)

So I decided to write this post to put on my own blog for our easy reference...

Source from many website, mainly from HungryGoWhere website.

1.Pulp by Papa Palheta | Hailing from Singapore, Pulp is the go-to stop for serious coffee drinkers (and makers). They offer light snacks but crowds flock to the cafe to get their caffeine fix from excellent espresso blends to top-notch single origin brews like Suke Quto, Blue Batak, and La Cupula brewed in a variety of ways.

Pulp is Papa Palheta's flagship store in Malaysia. This store resides within the premises of Art Printing Works, a historical printing plant which still functions since 1965 in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur. Pulp supplies coffee equipment and roasted beans both at retail and commercial level. It is equipped with a cupping room, a service workshop and a cafe which serves coffee and pastries.

3. The Red Bean Bag | With a menu cheekily divided into the dark side and the light side, where the former features heavier meals and the latter offers small bites. Their fluffy French toast (RM13.90) makes for a delicious light snack but for something heftier, their hearty baked eggs (RM17.90) is a no-brainer with a filling mix of bratwurst, sundried tomatoes, and potatoes topped with cheese and eggs.

Their delicious brunch menu is nothing to scoff at either, our favourite is the Upper Deck (RM14.90 - filled with egg mayo, cheddar cheese, and turkey bacon and ham with lashings of mustard.

Another review here.

Their aglio olio (RM13.90) with fresh seafood and al dente spaghetti is a popular choice of patrons but the star of the menu is their red velvet cake; moist and not too sweet with a balanced cream cheese frosting to cake ratio.
