Stopped in for a coffee and had an absolutely delicious Croque Madam. The atmosphere here was really good and I loved how it was right next to a hostel.

Perfect for a quick breakfast. It is good, inexpensive and with a limited but good variety. I am very picky with my morning coffee and there it was really good. I have seen that they have some very nice items on the lunch menu as well. The service is great. Everyone is super friendly and attentive. Would go back there.

I read that this is the no.1 place for breakfast in KL. So i went there with high expectations and was disappointed when i left. I was hungry so i decided for the "big breakfast" (i think at 25 ringgit) which surprisingly didn't come with any beverage so i ordered a local coffee at additional 7 ringgit. With taxes i... More

I stayed in a hotel across the street and had breakfast here both days. They have a fairly large menu with both meat and vegetarian options. Staff is very friendly and the cafe has a great ambiance to hang out in. Overall a great cafe if you're in the neighborhood and is worth checking out.

Has a very good environment. Friendly staff that always ensure the food served are enjoyed by their customer. Love their local coffee. However this place can be quite packed during the lunch hour and too small to accommodate more people. Apparently they will expand their space.

A relaxed, air conditioned café dressed out very cleverly in the current distressed industrial style (polished concrete; metal bits painted black; shiny white tiles; battered wood etc). Western stalwarts with nobs on e.g. 3 fluffy pancakes with maple syrup, toasted cashew nuts and a dollop of coconut cream - uber yummy all for 18 MR . They have their own... More

Description
LOKL is a neighbourhood cafe in the historic heart of KL. We serve espressos and local coffee, hot sandwiches with a local twist, and cakes and pastries.

We are housed in a bright airy space with an internal courtyard that's shared with BackHome Hostel.

WHY LOKL?
Because we take pride in being LOCAL - not just in terms of being Malaysian, but also in terms of the locale we're in.
From merchants selling coconuts to craft shops weaving rattan furniture - the Tun H.S. Lee neighbourhood has it all, and we're proud to be part of it.

Closed on Monday
Last orders at 700pm
