by Acacia Daud Photography FriedChillies on Tue, February 11, 2014

Maybe a 'lepak' at a Valentine's hangout can be a better idea than a full blown dinner. With that in mind, we've singled down 5 cosy hangouts for you and your sugarpie this Valentine's Day.

Love is in the air...

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! What better way to commemorate the occasion than with a good bite out with your loved one(s)? Be it for a quick caffeine fix with your significant other or a late night conversation in a cosy café, we’ve got the options right here for you all over KL. Point is that not everything centres around dinner, an intimate coffee or a cosy tea can be just what you need on lover's day.

Chilling with your Chérie
Yeast Bistronomy, Bangsar


Black and white checkered floors with jaunty yellow walls, Yeast Bistronomy is the love child of Frenchman Christophe Chatron-Michaud and his Malaysian-born wife, Lissan Teh. The restaurant is a delightful medley of bistro, boulangerie, and wine bar, with a menu that’s sure to bloom romance. Have an evening coffee with bites of the classic quiche Lorraine, or Le Paris Province sandwich. They also do duck here very well. The restaurant has a Valentines Menu at RM148++ but it's a cosy place to have dinner on any day.

Sweet-talk in the Suburbs
Teapot Deli, Shah Alam

Teapot Deli exudes an air of cottage cosiness, with trellises and flowers adorning the walls and the smell of baked goods wafting in the air. If you’ve always longed for a romantic English-esque dine out with your significant other, this is the place to go. Try their mini chicken pies, or sweet, fruity trifle. The roasted chicken is good for a filling dinner. Beverages include a range of teas, coffee and juices, but it’s the English scones that’ll definitely win his/her heart here.

Win his/her heart with a scone or two!

Hot with the Hipster
LOKL, Kuala Lumpur


If you’re looking for something new and hidden in the heart of KL, LOKL (pronounced Local) is the café to go. Intimately nestled off bustling Jalan Tun H S Lee, the narrow coffee shop has plenty of small corners to warm up and wind down. Their tasteful selection of lattes, kopi susu, and cappuccinos could get you going through the night – don’t forget to taste the Hainanese meat loaf sandwich, and their Putumayam Toastie dessert.

Touchy-feely with the Indie
The Bearded Lady, Subang


In Subang lies a warm, chic designer café in Bearded Lady, one of the newest in the cafe scene. Expect dim lights, live music, chalkboard menus and comfortable sofas for your late night coffee dates. The joint is a perfect combination of a traveller’s hub and local vintage cosiness. Valentine perks include a free Danish pastry or croissants with the purchase of a hot beverage of choice. If you just want to let your single heart out with a song, or profess your love in lyrics, this is the place to go.

Sweets, savouries and serenades.

An East/West marriage done right
