Tucked away in Petaling Jaya, Hideaway is very serious about butter and cakes.

The cafe provides a comfortable environment filled with the aroma of fresh baked goods. Wide varieties of bread, pastries and cakes display but they sold out really fast every day. We strongly recommend their pastries, you cannot go wrong with any of their cakes and tarts! As the name suggested, you can also get perfectly brewed coffee right here. Pair your meal with a hot cuppa, perfect!
