A good food is a must when you want to choose a café but nowadays good food is not enough to satisfy one’s hunger because it has to come together with an aesthetically pleasing interior. So get your camera ready for an Instagram-worthy experience at all these cafes that we’ve listed down just for you.

KEDAH

#1 Caffe Diem

Fancy hanging out at a café that was originally a prison during the colonial era circa 1800? Then, check out this charming cafe called Caffe Diem. There’s a room there reserves for private functions called Tunku Room, which is decorated with photos of Tunku Abdul Rahman, the first Prime Minister of Malaysia. Since Caffe Diem is located in Pekan Cina (China Town), its private dining room was named the China Room. The room, however, is not a typical Chinese-style room but is infused with local culture and contemporary arts. Patrons of Caffe Diem are greeted by five beautifully handcrafted Chinese lanterns by the local artisan and lantern-maker. One of the most interesting fixture at the café is its hanging Perahu Kedah (small row boats), which is suspended from the glass ceiling of its enclosed double volume courtyard of the building.
