2. VCR Stacks

VCR Stacks is another Mont’ Kiara cafe that is perfect for coffee and brunch. It’s most famous for homemade sourdough bread, though the menu also features delicious sandwiches and pizza, among other things. They also serve a wide variety of drinks, including craft beer, fresh juice, and tea. Take a bite of their Mushroom Melt with truffle oil and spinach and sip on a craft beer as you sit back and relax on your seat. 

3. Toast Maker

On the note of sandwiches, why not try Korean egg drop sandwiches? They’re typically lighter than normal sandwiches and stuffed with a fluffy omelette in between thick bread slices. At Toast Maker in Solaris Mont’ Kiara, they do exactly that. However, on top of their standard fillings of eggs and cheese, they toast their bread with sugar, which adds a sweeter element to their sandwiches. 

If you’re at Toast Maker for breakfast, order their Chicken Toast, which comes with an orange slice, a smoky teriyaki sauce, and a sunny side up. The explosion of flavours on your tongue will certainly make your day, and nothing can get better than that!
