2. Dotty’s Pastries& Coffee

Started in January 2016 in TTDI, Dotty’s is not a stranger among the locals in Kuala Lumpur. Well-known for their delicious pastries and various artisanal breads, it is not a surprise that there is usually barely an empty table in the restaurant. One of their best- selling delicacies is their salted egg yolk cronuts. The hybrid of a croissant and a doughnut, these babies go on sale every day at noon and sell out in a blink of an eye. Known for its velvety and smooth texture of the salted egg yolk mix, you will definitely be begging for more after one bite. Dotty's has since expanded to three sister cafes: Le Petit Dotty's at Platinum Park, Dotty's Parlour at Bangsar Shopping Centre, and also Dotty's Pastries & Coffee at Suria KLCC!
