Rise & Shine by Tapestry, Chow Kit

With a soaring skylight that floods this leafy space with sunshine, Tapestry is one of downtown KL's most striking new cafes, simultaneously rustic and refined. True to its name, Tapestry's menu also weaves together inspirations from past and present, a mesh of classic Malaysian breakfasts and contemporary Melbourne brunches. 

Eggy temptations are available all day long - if you're keeping things simple, the free-range kampung eggs on house-made sourdough slices come subtly spiced with specks of local ulam for a sprinkling of extra pizzazz (RM16); for more elaborate ensembles, The Hainan is toast with a twist, with scrambled eggs laced with coffee for a bitter edge, brightened by some comforting pumpkin kaya and charred heirloom tomatoes (RM22; add sweet-savoury Sarsi-glazed beef bacon for RM8 to provide this platter with more bite), while the potato hash brings together bangers with salt beef for a meaty punch, buoyed by sweet corn and a poached egg splashed with bunga kantan hollandaise (RM28).

Beverages are well worthwhile at all temperatures - the Nitro Cold Brew is ultra-rejuvenating, made delicately nectarous with manuka honey (RM18) and the Hot Chocolate is constructed with the ever-reliable Chocolate Concierge's produce from Pahang. Service is a standout at Tapestry, with every crew member making clear efforts to ensure a pleasant experience.
