[Updated 9 July 2020] For some of us, cafe-hopping is always better when we've got the company of our loved ones. It adds meaning to the heart-shaped latte art we see and the decadent desserts we savour. And if the only thing missing is a cafe to host your perfect afternoon, we've rounded up the best halal cafes in KL for a weekend brunch date 😊
1. Erni & Tina
A pretty brunch space that deserves a square in your Instagram feed, Erni & Tina is dotted with hanging light fixtures, decadent cake displays and fresh-white counters. Cosy enough for a meal of coffee, cakes and comfort food, you can share everything from spaghetti bolognese to mac and cheese with beef with your loved one. #HHWT Tip: During weekends and peak hours, it's challenging to score a parking space where this cafe is located. So save yourself from the parking headache and come before noon. Halal status: Muslim-owned Opening hours: Wed-Mon, 12PM-8.30PM (Closed on Tue) Address: G-05, Maxim Alam Damai, No. 43, Jalan 9, Taman Len Seng, 56000 Kuala Lumpur Contact number: +603 8958 9909 Facebook | Instagram
2. Le Petit Dotty
You don't have to think twice about coming to Le Petit Dotty for brunch. A short drive from KLCC Park, you can find joy from a plate of eggs benedict, big breakfast and Croque madame croissant doughnut. It's fine if you wake up past noon. There's always the lunchtime mains such as lamb stew, spaghetti carbonara with turkey slice, and pan seared salmon waiting for you. #HHWT Tip: If Le Petit Dotty is packed to the brim, check out their sister eatery named Dotty's at Suria KLCC and Taman Tun Dr Ismail. Finding an empty parking spot at Dotty's can be challenging during weekends and peak hours too, so come in the morning. Halal status: Muslim-owned Opening hours: Mon-Fri, 7.30AM-6PM; Sat & Sun, 7.30AM-3PM Address: Lot 1.03, Ground Floor, Menara TH, Platinum Park, Persiaran KLCC, 50450 Kuala Lumpur Contact number: +603 2181 1023 Website | Facebook | Instagram
3. Apronfools
Sugary desserts and icing cakes are the centrepieces of Apronfools. With a pretty ceramic plate in hand, choosing between their various decadent pies, sticky pecan buns and lemon-strawberry bundt cake will be hard. Hence, it's always great to bring a loved one, so you can sample almost everything you like (and more). I mean, there's a reason why Apronfoolsis one of the10 heavenly desserts in KL that'll leave you on cloud nine! #HHWT Tip: Check out Apronfools' Instagram for their latest Weekday Goods and Weekend Sweets.

5. Whip & Whisk KL
For most dessert lovers, we love walking into a bakery and cafe combo such as Whip And Whisk. If you're a couple who enjoys two courses for brunch, start with their well-loved fish and chips, nasi buttermilk fried chicken or nasi lemak chicken chop. Then, wrap up your afternoon on a sweet note with Nutella cream cheese cinnamon roll or lemon blueberry cake. Since they take pride in being a tart and pastry specialist, remember to have room for those too.

Sprawled with wooden floors and white brick walls, Wondermilk also shines in the brunch department. All-day breakfast lovers will enjoy the Spicy Sausage and Breakfast Vibes. Otherwise, their Mr Chuck Norris burger (there's hashbrown in it!) and Zombie Attack burger (and this one has mashed potatoes!) will take your brunch date to the next level.

If you are feeling adventurous, make sure to try Cup of Nations! Thisamazing dish is a unique take on scotch eggs, which sit on a lovely purple bed of sweet potato mash, surrounded by a pool of creamy leek sauce.
