As opposed to weekdays when it's medicinal 🖤 #jaotimkl #coffeesesh


A lovely place to spend the afternoon especially on the weekdays when it’s almost close to empty. No wifi but they did suggest to connect to the wifi from the shop downstairs. Jao Tim has a small selection of food, pies and sandwich. In frame: Grilled Cheese Sandwich (RM15). A combination of melted mozzarella, cheddar and paprika in toast, served with a side of salad. A little bit on the salty side, but good overall. Coffee (RM11) was good too with a sweet floral note.


Beautiful, gold-accented space backed by walnut wooden furnishings. The distance between tables is an obvious plus, granting a lot of quiet and privacy. Though primarily an event space up for rent (from RM3k), the daily operations puts out a decent cuppa with beans from Kota Kemuning’s
Brew & Bread. A range of cute craft beers, purportedly from Penang, are sold here too.


Built back in 1910 as a hotel, this heritage lot along Jalan Sultan has reincarnated into a cafe and event space for city crawlers. Jao Tim's charm lies not only in its historic name (it means 'hotel' in Cantonese), but also the dashing interior melding exposed bricks with brass-accented furnishings. Tourists who grow tired trawling the streets of Chinatown would find this heaven-sent, since it's a rest stop for coffee and craft beers, as well as a look into old KL. For now, the menu is limited to light bites — warm and rustic Classic Chicken Pie (RM15), an oozy Grilled Cheese Sandwich (RM15) plus pastries on daily rotation. With more hot food in the pipeline, and a plan to turn the floor above into a co-working space, this place is all set to be yet another one of Chinatown's key destinations.
Avg price per person: RM25

Coffee and simple fare at this cafe cum event space which will soon also welcome working nomads looking for something temporary above the main dining hall.
