This European-style book cafe in Klang definitely has its very own aesthetic and is very much Instagram worthy having such a cool spot to chill and read! The ambiance of the book café is also suitable for doing works and assignments. This two level book café with outdoor seating serves various desserts and pastries. However, many customers come here for their two top unique dishes which are the Salted Egg Yolk and Green Tea Croissant. Customers can read various books from the shelves in this book café and those who wish to donate their books, can do so at the first floor. The book cafe closes on Sunday.

If you want to encourage your kids to read more books instead of being glued to their devices, this is the place to bring them! Families with kids love to visit this place as there are plenty of books to choose from to read. They host mini-shows, movie screenings, painting class, craft sessions and more to keep the little ones entertained.

The interior that replicates a kampong-style house gives out the rustic vibe with aesthetic appeal. The peaceful environment will definitely bring out the reading side of yours. You are free to take the books at the front of the store and also donate them too. Apart from serving desserts, the cafe serves an all-day breakfast that you can choose from. Most regular customers come here for their specials, which are the Rojak and Taufu Bakar. Since the book café is located in a residential area, the parking is limited.
