  1. What a great list, Monica….thanks for putting it together. I’ve been to a few of them and totally agree with you (in fact, Ra-Ft is my no. 1 “love”). I’ll be sure to visit some of the others on this list (I “eye” two near me…hehe!) ^_~

  2. I would choose to go to feel-good places, never mind that there are others where the food or drinks would be nicer.

  3. I’ve never been to any of these but I can’t see past the Coffee Bean (CBTL) outlets in KL. Feeka in Bukit Bintang is also very decent but small cups. I grudge paying Starbuck’s prices for coffee that isn’t very good.

  4. Great thanks for sharing , I really like to try “Brookie” in Kopenhagen Coffee.
