Some of us love cafe hopping while others appreciate a relatively quiet spot to get some work done. Either way, cafes serve as the perfect hideaway from the hustle and bustle of the city and a great hangout spot. However, not all of us are willing to drive all the way to Bangsar or Damansara (where most of the cafes are situated) right? Well, say hello to 10 Best Cafes In Cheras As Your Next Hangout Spot due to their calming ambience (and good food!)

2. Ah Gong House
The first thought that comes to mind is probably, ” Ah Gong House? That’s a rather odd name for a cafe.” Well, that’s because owner Doreen turned her grandfather’s home into a cozy coffee bar which patrons can visit during the weekends while on weekdays, it is a space for ukulele devotees to share their love for music. The owners shows their undying passion for hand-brewed coffee and freshly-baked cakes which will leave you coming back for more.

6. Three Journey Cafe
Famous for their Unique Glaze, it is considered a ‘do-it-yourself’ dessert because you will be the one doing the glaze-pouring and then watching your dessert come to live. And don’t worry, in this case, first impressions do not deceive; not only does it look pretty, but it tastes great too. This café does not have the fanciest décor, so the only thing that will be distracting you from your work is their lovely desserts.

7. Thurs 2.0
The bubble tea craze does not stop at drinks and pizzas; allow us to introduce to you, bubble tea earl grey cake. This earl grey chiffon cake topped with sea salt cheese milk foam and boba is a must-try for Bubble Tea Fanatics. With the café’s monochromatic colour scheme, what stands out the most is definitely the presentation of the food. First timers, do bear in mind that they have a relatively small entrance and it can be difficult to spot.

Operating Hours : Mon-Tues 12pm-11pm, Wedn-Sun 11pm – 11pm
8. Hexgon Cafe
Forget about burger buns, baos are the next best thing. Teriyaki chicken or namyu pork belly sandwiched between soft and springy baos, we can’t stop drooling just thinking about it. If you’re not a fan of these bao burgers, they do have a few rice bowl options which are just as filling. Their bright and white environment is great for discussions and it effortlessly becomes your favourite workspace.

On the hunt for oozing cheesy goodness? Say Cheese definitely hits the spot if you need a good cheesy fix.
