1. Yellow Brick Road – There’s something charming about the atmosphere at Yellow Brick Road that always has us longing for more. The cheerful demeanor of servers as well as the gorgeous interior would have you feeling like you’re on the set of Kinfolk magazine (or even Oz!). But one thing’s for sure, everyone comes back for the food. Our favourite is the Eggs Norwegian V2.0 (RM27), featuring poached eggs and salmon on a cornflakes crusted french toast (this is heaven, honestly) or The Big Breakfast Bash(RM30) to cure a nasty hangover.
Yellow Brick Road is located at 8-7, Jalan Batai, Damansara Heights. Call 03-28560903 or visit Yellow Brick Road’s Instagram page for more information.
2. Huckleberry Food & Fare – The lovely people at Huckleberry Food & Fare went all out in making the establishment feel like a piece of everyone’s childhood, and most importantly, home. With a quote from Mark Twain scribbled on the wall, Huckleberry sticks to this sentiment that we all can relate to – “There ain’t nothing in the world so good when it’s cooked right.” Our favourite here besides the super fresh breads and pastries is the Chilli Cheese Toast (Rm13.90) – a great way to start the morning with some eggs and spice.
Huckleberry Food & Fare is located at 2G & 4G, Jln Medan Setia 2, Plaza Damansara. Follow Huckleberry Food & Fare on Instagram for more.
3. Second Sunday – Second Sunday is home to one of our favourite pancakes on the planet, the Local Pankek. Located in the vicinity of Damansara Jaya, Second Sunday serves up one of the best coffees in the area, and trust us when we say that the Local Pankek (a concoction of pandan and coconut pancake with caramelised bananas, gula melaka syrup and coconut ice cream) is only done right here.
Second Sunday is located at 31, Jalan SS 22/19, Ss 22, 47400 Petaling Jaya, Selangor. Call +60 3-6731 1526 for more information or like them on Facebook.

4. Breakfast Thieves – Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, Breakfast Thieves KL is the brainchild of Malaysian Brandon Chin, Kevin Foo and Edwin Koh. After being listed as one of Melbourne’s top 5 cafes, the brand has rapidly made a name for itself in KL, judging by the amount of people lining up for a great brunch every morning. Upon a visit here, you’d notice that the Mr. Terry Benedict (RM29) is on every table. How can it not be? It comes with tender chunks of 24-hours braised beef cheeks, charred cauliflowers, crisp palatas and poached eggs – the combo is just out of this world.
Breakfast Thieves is located at Lot M, 29-5 Jalan Riong, Bangsar, 59100 Kuala Lumpur. Access here for more on Breakfast Thieves.
5. Common Man Coffee Roasters – CMCR KL originally hailed from Singapore but launched not too long ago in TTDI’s Plaza Vads and have since gained quite the following. Featuring exceptionally great coffee and an all day brunch menu, CMCR KL is definitely becoming a neighbourhood favourite. Come here for the Fluffy Brioche French Toast (RM27) that comes with a gorgeous serving of berries compote, maple syrup and premium vanilla ice cream. It will blow you away.
