Simply put, Malaysians LOVE their cafés, to the point that café-hopping is the latest trend that more of us have been having fun with. But unlike last time, cafés have since evolved to have their own uniqueness, from sharing their profound love for sourdough pastries to those that are all about aesthetics.

Read on to find out if you’ve explored every type of café that we have in the country!


1. The humble coffee enthusiast: No-frills + cheaper coffee

A favourite amongst working adults or broke thrifty students, they tend to serve ONLY coffee with minimal or no snacks. These modest establishments sometimes come in half-shop-lots or kiosks with little to no seatings, not to mention they’re usually near offices.


2. The influencer: All for the Gram

Here’s where you can get aesthetic café photos akin to your stylish friend(s) or favourite influencers on Insta. The ‘influencers’ put A LOT of painstaking care into their atmosphere and interior design, to the extent that they even do full-on professional landscaping!


3. The hungry foodie: Of hearty brunches and delightful dinners

These are cafés where you can enjoy the high level of food quality that you pay for, but alas, they tend to be wayyyy too crowded because of how good their food is.


4. The pet lovers: Furry friends = perfect café date!

From dining with your own fur babies to falling head over heels for the adorable in-café Huskies or oyens, we’re pampered with an abundance of pet-friendly cafés that make us kenot tahan lah while we brunch!


5. The fusion: A new spin on Western cafés

Sien of big breakfasts and Eggs Benedict? This café type switches up the usual cafés fare by infusing them with Eastern flavours, usually Japanese, Korean, Chinese or Malay.

In fact, there is one new café we recently discovered that’s a fusion between artisanal coffee shops and timeless kopitiams, with a wide array of food offerings and a 100% local blend of coffee for our enjoyment. Whether you’re travelling on the road seeking quick on-the-go meals or looking to sip on an enriching cuppa before continuing your journey, check out the brand new Shell Café launched by Shell Malaysia. You read that right, our trusty petrol station with the red and yellow kerang!


A café worth stopping for!

Introducing Shell Café, Shell’s first ever lifestyle café which serves their unique blend of crafted coffee, alongside hot food like pastas, fresh pastries and local favourites.

Shell Café is actually the latest new offering from Malaysians’ favourite petrol station, with 60 outlets already open and 20 more expected to buka kedai by year-end. Shell Café won’t just be a stop on your journey, as they’ve started to expand their food and coffee offerings ‘beyond the forecourt’ too, with more outlets now found in offices, our friendly LRT station in Abdullah Hukum, and most recently, universities! ??‍♀️ Shell Café is truly the go-to café for every Malaysian who simply wants to unwind and enjoy some of the best-tasting coffee and food. ☕

We went to check out the latest Shell Café at Taylor’s University Lakeside Campus, and it’s soooo comfy! ?

Here are a few reasons why Shell Café should be your next coffee stop:


a) Farm to Cup: Signature coffee like no other

Shellcafe People Photos

Savour your freshly-brewed cuppa at Shell Café, with their locally-sourced blend of medium-dark roast beans that is only available at Shell Café. Instead of using purely Arabica beans, Shell Café has created a blend that includes locally-grown Liberica beans (a rare bean which accounts for 2% of the world’s production), which is touted as sweeter, more flavourful and more kaw to give you that smooth aftertaste, bringing to mind dark chocolate along with a jolting caffeine kick. Mmmmm~

In fact, every new Shell Café is holding a special promo for its drinks, where you can enjoy 50% OFF on selected beverages*, including best sellers such as iced latte and americano!

*While stocks last.

b) Warm your soul with pastries and hot food

Don’t forget to pair your cup of coffee with a selection of freshly prepared food! Shell Café is serving up pastas, delicious hot wraps, and new favourites from their fresh-off-the-oven pastries like scones and curry puffs. Now you can go from biting into a rich chocolate roll or buttery croffle to filling up on satay wrap or a wholesome mac & cheese in one sitting!

Shellcafe Pastries

Shell Cafe Mac N Cheese


So, whether you want a fresh cup of quality coffee to-go or delicious heart-warming meals to fill up on and wind down with, Shell Café is truly an experience worth stopping for.

To further the excitement, Shell Café will also be having a grand launch on the 8 and 9 December at A Place Where (APW, Bangsar) where you can try some of the latest offerings from Shell Café and also try your hands on being a barista.
