We’ve already covered Bangkok and Singapore, and now it’s time to shift over to Malaysia.

Did you know that Malaysia is also one of the Southeast Asian countries that is home to lots of adorable fairy tale-themed cafes and restaurants?

Also, since Malaysians are well-known for their lepak culture – which literally means hanging out – they would need a nice, cool place to hang out, and the cooler your café is, chances of it becoming a full house is very possible.

Having unique and Insta-worthy cafes really help to ease up the tension of many working adults nowadays, as they can serve as the place for a quality family bonding time, a reunion among friends, colleagues and school mates, or maybe a special birthday or anniversary celebration. 

So without further ado, here are some of the most adorable fantasy-themed cafes in Malaysia.

1. Happ Cafe 


Also known as the Flower Café, the place is decorated with both fresh and artificial flowers in a cosy environment that will put you at ease. Though the café seems to be missing the letter ‘y’, it is no doubt one of the happiest cafes in town that serves great coffee, hot food, refreshing drinks, unique cakes, and yummy pastries. The café also offers delivery services for both food and flowers. A tiny part of the café, which is the artsy area, sells different stationaries such as postcards, stickers and more. Every month, the café will host workshops for handmade crafts. Located at Tropicana Avenue, the café was opened by two sisters.

2. Ice Cafe 


“Do you want to build a snowman?” But you don’t need to! Because Penang’s Ice Café already have their own snowman! The first-of-its-kind café in Malaysia, Ice Café lives up to its name with a constant temperature of 8°C to 10°C throughout the day, so if you plan on visiting the place, a jacket or shawl is recommended unless you’re used to cold temperatures, because remember, even the lowest temperature of a normal air conditioner is only 16°C. The unique coffeehouse combines the novelty of a cold temperature with gorgeous settings complete with an ice bed, igloo, white Christmas trees, snowmen, and ice bath too! Located on Lebuh Victoria, it is the perfect place for you to escape from Malaysia’s tropical temperature.

4. V Bridal Cafe
