Part of the fun of exploring halal brunch cafes in KL is the amount of delicious all-day breakfast, toasts, and burgers that await you. Sometimes, brunch is the only acceptable reason for us to rise early on a relaxing weekend. Since there's an abundance of halal cafes in KL, we're usually spoilt for choices. Every now and then, we're faced with the question, "where to go for brunch?". With that in mind, here's a guide to the best places for brunch in KL that are perfect for our Muslim brothers and sisters.

1. Dotty's

Dotty's burst into the TTDI cafe scene a few years back became the talk of the town, thanks to its pretty interior, a hearty western-style menu, and a bevvy of baked pastries, including the popular salted-egg cronut. These days, it remains a popular place for breakfast, brunch, or any meal, really. They've since opened two other outlets in KL including Le Petit Dotty's at Platinum Park and Dotty's at KLCC.
