The Highly Instagrammable Café In Merchant’s Lane

Up Your IG Game At Merchant’s Lane

It isn’t particularly strange to see the name Merchant’s Lane plastered all over most of the Internet’s “list of cafés to visit in Kuala Lumpur”. After all, the formerly quiet affair is now receiving tons of attention from café aficionados and #OOTD chasers alike due to its stylish interior and superb café offerings — perfect to up your IG game.

Merchant’s Lane features a mix of traditional, contemporary, and eccentric design that will instantly transport you to the colonial shophouses of Georgetown in Penang. A collection of air wells and olden tree barks sprouting from the exposed walls, custom-made rattan furnishing, and wooden flooring then round off a genuinely picture-perfect coffee spot.

In contrast to the always-busy and crowded Chinatown in Kuala Lumpur, Merchant’s Lane is nestled in a somewhat hidden spot. The café does indeed offer a rather serene getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city, which can also mean that it’s a great spot to get work done. 

Merchant’s Lane serves a variety of hand-crafted teas and coffees as well as fusion-style brunches and desserts. For their desserts, the café has a wide selection of cakes sourced from bakeries around the city.
