When we’re talking about foodie districts in Klang Valley, we can’t miss out on Puchong and its wealth of cafes that can be found in the area. Besides the sprawling housing estates and the massive IOI Mall that stretches out into the highway, this part of Selangor is starting to catch the attention of foodies everywhere for its many delicious dining options.

If you’d like to take your coffee and brunch adventures outside of cafes in KL and PJ, we’ve compiled some of the best cafes in Puchong that are worth visiting:

1. Souffle – fluffy souffle pancakes

Souffle is one of Puchong’s busiest cafes and is also the first name most would mention when getting recommendations for the best Japanese-style pancakes. Each plate of the dessert comes with a stack of 3 pancakes that look just like giant toasted marshmallows – you can even spot them jiggling as the server carries it over to your table. 

Besides the Strawberry Souffle Pancake (RM20), those who like fruity flavours have plenty of options to choose from like Caramel Banana Souffle Pancake (RM18) and Mango Souffle Pancake (RM19). Otherwise, you can always go for the Matcha Red Bean Souffle Pancake (RM19) that comes with a side of matcha cream and sweet red beans.

Waffles

If you prefer having waffles (from RM15) over pancakes on the breakfast table, they have those too. Theirs’ are generously thicker for a fluffier bite, so you’ll be plenty stuffed even with just 2 pieces. The square pockets are also deeper to hold in more maple syrup – perfect for those of us who like it extra sweet.

2. Mancave Cafe & Collectibles – action figures on display

It’s only been months since Avengers: Endgame came out in cinemas, and while it may have been the last time we get to see the entire team on the big screen, we can still spazz over our favourite heroes at Mancave

The cafe was started by a small group of friends who had amassed a huge collection of superhero figurines, so instead of keeping them in their homes, they decided to open a cafe where their figurines would be put on display for diners to admire.

Tour around the mini gallery as you wait for your food to arrive. Some of them are even placed right in front of the long dining counter, so you’ll be able to admire even the tiniest details of each figurine as you tuck into your food. 

You’ll see plenty of Western fare when you’re flipping the menu with options ranging from chicken chops to pastas and pizzas. However, you’ll come across some fusion finds like Creamy Tom Yam Prawn Pasta (RM14.90). Prices are also considerably affordable as you can get a whole Hawaiian Pizza for just RM13.90.

Opening hours: Mon-Thu 12PM-10PM | Fri 12PM-12AM | Sat 10AM-12AM | Sun 12PM-10PM

3. Unicorn25 – Dutch baby pancakes and unicorn desserts

Dutch Baby Pancakes (from RM18) could be the start of a new food trend in Malaysia. You may be expecting a regular plate of pancakes when you order this, but you’ll be stunned when you see your “pancakes” served to you in a skillet. If you’re intrigued by this foreign treat, head down to Unicorn25 as they’re one of the few places that offer dutch baby pancakes.

It’s made by pouring the batter into a hot skillet before it’s placed into an oven for a couple of minutes. While a souffle gradually deflates after it’s been served, these pancakes collapse the second it’s taken out of the oven – what’s left behind is a poofy centre with a crepe-like texture and crispy, golden edges.

With “unicorn” in their name, you can expect to find some adorable unicorn-themed desserts like their mini cakes. Each one comes with a gradient finish and is piped with beautiful swirls around before topped with a golden horn.

Before you indulge in these desserts, the cafe also has plenty of hot food for you to fill up on first. Their Super Big Breakfast (RM25) comes with 3 waffles, sauteed mushrooms, grilled tomato, ham, and sausages. For lighter eats, opt for Seafood Aglio Olio (RM15).

There are many different types of coffee drinkers, but whichever category you land in, you’ll love the selection at The Depot. The cafe hailing from Johor Bahru roasts the beans and creates signature blends themselves. As the final cherry on top, they also have an arsenal of award-winning baristas to maintain their reputation.

To help you navigate through their extensive menu, here’s what we recommend: Classic Cold Latte (RM16), Brandy Chocolate (RM15.90), and their list of specialty coffees that are imported from all over the globe.

Ground Eatery is one of those cafes you wouldn’t expect to find in this part of town, where just a couple years ago, you’d only have seen street food lining each street. They’ve kept the decor simple by just sprucing the place up with some plants to contrast the industrial grey floors and countertops.

The dessert that brought them social media fame is none other than Jack The Baba HK Eggettes (RM20), a fun twist on the classic Hong Kong street food. It’s served with thin slices of honey jackfruit, a heavy sprinkling of toasted peanuts, and topped with a scoop of refreshing coconut ice-cream.

7. Buranchi – authentic Japanese meal of rice in hot tea

It’s hard to find a meal like this even in the city centre, where most Japanese places only serve the typical sushi or bento boxes. Buranchi in Bandar Puteri has Chazuke (from RM12) on their menu, which is a set meal that comes with a pot of tea, grilled saba fish, and side dishes. You’re meant to eat this dish by pouring the tea into your bowl of rice a la thunder tea rice style.

Switch to your second stomach once you’re done with your main course to indulge in their handmade desserts, like this Sweet Potato Cake. It’s made from Okinawa potatoes, hence the slight tinge of purple in each slice.

8. Sipping Corner – sweet cakes at a green sanctuary

Sipping Corner is one of the newest additions to the list of hidden cafes in the city, and they could possibly be the most misleading one yet. The storefront is crowded with countless potted plants that are so densely packed together that it looks like a mini forest. But unless you are looking to start a succulent collection, you probably wouldn’t be tempted to make your way inside.

The same shoplot actually houses a quaint coffee shop at the back that serves toothsome cakes and tarts. When you peek into their display counter, you’ll find a unique selection of desserts. The list includes Avocado and Lime Tart (RM16), Earl Grey Grapefruit Cake (RM14), and Blueberry Frangipane Pie (RM15).

Coffee fans will have a blast picking what to order with their impressive selection of hand-brewed coffees. The Elida Green Tip Geisha (RM26) stands out the most and not only because of its name, but also the flavour profiles listed: lychee, bergamot, and jasmine. If these fancier picks aren’t for you, stick to a regular cup of Espresso for only RM7

Address: 78G, Jalan Puteri 5/5, Bandar Puteri, Puchong
