Monét, Melawati

If you love neighbourhood cafes with charm and cheer, check out the cosy new Monét, named ironically for the tormented, temperamental French painter. 

From Paris-Brest with praline cream to caneles and cruffins, Monét tocks plenty of French-inspired pastry pleasures, mostly sourced from the cafe founders’ independent baker friends. 

Arkib-roasted coffee ranks as good as caffeine gets in KL - sip on a Costa Rican pour-over or a flat white with oat milk while Kota the Friend raps on the speakers on a chilled-out Monday morning. A mini library beckons customers to stay a little longer.


5443, Fasa 6, Jalan J 9, Taman Melawati, 53100 Kuala Lumpur. Daily, 8am-8pm. Tel: 017-358-1825
