Carbohydrate is important as our daily supply of energy, which explains why pastry such as bread and buns are consumed for breakfast. Walking from afar, I’m sure you would be able to smell the sweet scents from these bakeries in KL:
1. Barcook Bakery @ Bangsar South
During lunchtime, you would see this bakery crowded by office workers, taking their break time here for their delicious pastries.
Some of their bestsellers include raisin cream bun, mix berry cheese bun, and croissants. Also, they provide vegetarian buns that contain no eggs for vegan clients.
The branch located at The Sphere, which has just opened up in January this year, operates with a kitchen in full transparency. This is because customers can always look through the glass wall to ensure the cleanliness of the baking process.

2. Mello Yello @TTDI
Situated right next to Hero Market, Mello Yello is a cutely designed bakery with tiny yellow chairs and warm lights. This interior design delivers a peaceful ambience resembling a small cottage in the European countries.
Besides that, the pastries they sell are normally in big portion, so it’s a suitable breakfast place to fill your hungry stomach.

4. Lavender @ Bandar Utama
Lavender is a classic choice for Malaysians, with its reasonable price and fairly delicious cakes. What’s different about Lavender with other bakeries is that they sell according to various trends and celebrations such as Halloween, Mother’s Day, and Mooncake Festival.
Furthermore, they even sell the famous ‘dirty bun'(肮脏包) originated in Taiwan, which has loads of cocoa powder sprinkled all over. This is why it’s called dirty bun because you can’t eat it without dirtying your mouth.
My personal favourite is this cheap and tasty red bean bread. Not only that it contains a hint of sweetness from the red bean, the taste is not too heavy to be eaten with drinks like milk and Milo.

5. Komugi @ MidValley
Komugi acquired its status in Malaysia with their light, creamy and perfectly balanced Hanjuku Cheese Cake.
Also, their authentic breads and confectioneries are made by a team of Japanese pastry chefs.
If you don’t like the rich creamy taste of cheese, they also have matcha and chocolate flavour~
Furthermore, they don’t use animal fat and animal-derived ingredients for their breads and pastries; hence it is definitely safe for vegetarians to consume!
