Circlé Cafe

Circlé Cafe

Circlé is a newly opened coffee shop tucked in the middle of Bukit Bintang’s most Instagrammable hotspot in Jalan Berangan. While the space is quaint and small, Circlé provides a Hong Kong-esque street-side coffee shop vibe. The coffee is highly recommended, with beans sourced worldwide by its owner, Wilson, who recently returned from overseas to start this little jaunt. Come by for an iced black and small-batch homemade sourdough served with butter and kaya.
