As there’s nearly a handful of them that are begging to be noticed, let us ease your café hunt with 5 halal cafes that we think every café-goer should visit! 🤤


1. Podgy 

Located in a quieter neighbourhood in Bangsar, Podgy is a hip café serving hearty brunch sets, delicious desserts and everyone’s favourite – coffee! 🙌🏼

Fun fact about this place –  it was originally a café called Podgy and the Banker in Hartamas but it was sadly closed in mid 2017 ☹️

Fortunately for fans of this Instagrammable café, the owners have decided to start afresh and move to Bangsar under a new name after an extensive revamp 😊

The massive brunch spread served by this quirky café seems to be heavily influenced by the Western (and a little bit of Italian) delicacies – like the La Napoletana, a pizza topped with lots of cheese, black olives, bell peppers and some spinach! 🤤

The cafe also boasts more food offerings with all day brunch options and desserts like the Mango Mille Feuille. And of course, no visit is complete without trying their signature hot chocolate!
