Most of us are aware that Kuala Lumpur has an abundance of Instagrammable cafes filled with whimsical decor and artsy interiors, but not all of them are family-friendly.
Some serve food that only attracts adults while others have fragile pieces of decoration that you would not want your child to get near to. So, where can you bring your little ones for some good weekend outings?
Continue scrolling below to find out some of the best kid-friendly cafes in Klang Valley that features not only special kid’s meals, but also fun play areas to keep the fun going.
