The one topic of conversation that’s always guaranteed to inspire frenzied debate among residents of the capital would have to be the best bakeries in Kuala Lumpur.

Arguably the purveyors of the best sourdough and pastries in KL, Dou Dou Bake is the place to go for buttery, flaky, and beautifully layered pastries. From their almond croissants to their country sourdough bread, lotus and sea salt bun, and pain au jambon—everything here is worth every carb calorie. They even have a delicious brunch menu that includes classic go-to’s such as a big breakfast and avocado toasts.

Notoriously famous for its victoria sponge cake, sticky toffee pudding, and lemon bars, Jaslyn Cakes is the crowning glory of all sweet delights. While every dessert here is delicious, their boulangerie section: humble baked goods such as pains au chocolat, croque monsieurs, ham and cheese croissants, rustic apple tarts, and buttery tea cakes are just as good.

Croisserie Artisan Bakery

One of the city’s most popular Pâtisseries, Croisserie Artisan Bakery features an array of sweet and savoury baked goods. Fans rave about treats both haute and humble, including the flaky pain au chocolat, rich Paris Brest, the crusty loaves of baguettes and their custardy canelés.

Tommy Le Baker

For all the savoury souls out there, Tommy Le Baker is the perfect spot to curb your good bread and sandwiches craving. Their baked goods are the stuff of Parisian boulangeries that we all know and love. You can never go wrong with their roast ribeye steak sandwich, oven-braised chicken sandwich, camembert cheese sandwich and their tartines. Their housemade sourdoughs and baguettes are also too good to even pass. 

Universal Bakehouse

This eponymous bakehouse is secreted away in Petaling Jaya. The team of bakers here work throughout the day turning out one of the city’s best sourdough, brioche, focaccia, and brookies. They’re also known for their sausage rolls, tartines, and buttery tea cakes.

Provisions Café draws inspiration from the bakeries of California and the cafés of Melbourne. This means breakfast here consists of a flaky, buttery hour of guilt-free indulgence, while afternoon tea is all about their chocolate chip cookies that are to die for. They have rows and rows of loaves of bread such as wholemeal sourdough, walnut raisin sourdough, rye sourdough and milk bread that are perfect for sandwiches and tartines. We absolutely love their smoked duck bun glazed with honey, kaya toast, cinnamon buns, grilled cheese with tomato soup, and chocolate milk bun.
