Yeast Bistronomy
This new opening in Bangsar's cafe-packed streets has garnered a loyal following in a few months. Yeast is all about artisanal French baking, and you'll find a beautiful selection of French pastries and breads here (we can highly recommend the croissants). They also do a beautiful quiche, and their baked eggs are superb. Try and grab a seat outside so you can people watch.

If you can walk into Antipodean and get a table straight away, count yourself very lucky. This Australian-New Zealand cafe has undergone a popularity explosion over the last couple of years, thanks in large part to its generously portioned breakfast fry up.Though bacon is usually the name of the game here, they also do great waffles and pancakes; nothing experimental, just good old comfort food.

Yut Kee
One of Kuala Lumpur's insitutions, Yut Kee is a proper Malaysian coffee shop in the old style – tiled floors, marble tables and seriously good food. It may seem unconventional to have a pork chop in the mid-morning, but you should definitely try it – Yut Kee's is crisply fried, then drenched in gravy alongside crunchy potatoes. Also try their French toast, served with kaya (coconut jam), and if you're lucky you might be able to order a plate of Yut Kee's famous roast pork, only available on weekends.
