THE ALLEY

5, Lorong Stewart, George Town, 10200 George Town, Pulau Pinang, Malaysia
Must try their Churros, it’s really delicious. I always recommend it to my friends who visit my hometown too! They have the best Churros in Malaysia ever.

SECAWAN HUTTON

205, Jalan Hutton, George Town, 10050 George Town, Pulau Pinang, Malaysia
The best Eggs Benedict in Penang! It was recommended by another Penang cafe hopper. When I tried it with her, I never thought it would be so delicious! The price of the Egg’s Benedict is also reasonable.

Wifi: Slow & Free
Outlets: Few
Seating: Fair

150, Jalan Petaling, City Centre, 50000 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
The environment is very peaceful. They also have their signature food and drink too. There serve Asian-Western cuisine, such as Italian Chow Mein (Spaghetti cooked with Chicken Rendang), Ong Bak (Tomyam Soup with Seafood and Macaroni), and Better than Sex (Kaya Toast flavor of Ice Cream with Roti Jala and Gula Melaka). You can’t find those dishes in any other cafe.

BEV C

54, Jalan Tan Hiok Nee, Bandar Johor Bahru, 80000 Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia
In my opinion, this is the best cafe in Johor Bahru. Bev C is a clothing shop that has a cafe upstairs. I love the environment and the food, especially the tarts, because you can’t find it anywhere else in Malaysia.

Wifi: Fair & Free
Outlets: Fair

BOUFE CAFE

308 Tanglin Rd, Singapore 247974
This is the first cafe  I visited Singapore. The interior is mostly white, giving off a minimal vibe. They served coffee and pastries, as well as brunch food.

Wifi: Fair
Outlets: None
Seating: Fair

NYLON COFFEE ROASTERS

4 Everton Park, #01-40, Singapore 080004
The space is quite small and can’t fit in a lot of guests. However, there is always a crowd on weekends because they have their own brand and coffee bean roaster.

Wifi: None
Outlets: None
Seating: Low


12959991_1100057733370107_864983146_nFREE THE ROBOT

118 Telok Ayer St, Singapore 068587
Free for Robot was only a bar and bistro before, but currently they have a built-in coffee bar too. The location of cafe quite near the office towers area, so it’s very crowded whenever lunch break hour hits. But because of that, they serve liquor, coffee and food.

12519403_1079541705438990_1722767365_nThis is the Prawn Pasta Aglio Olio. This dish was recommended by the waiter that took my order. I damn well love that huge prawn!!

Wifi: Fair & Free

TOLIDO’S ESPRESSO NOOK

#01-63, 462 Crawford Ln, Singapore 190462
Their signature drink is the caramel latte. This cafe was recommended by friends from Johor Bahru that work in Singapore. The latte art is very awesome and tastes very nice. I am usually not a huge fan of caramel, but it was not too sweet for me.

Wifi: Lightning & Free

OTHER RECOMMENDED CAFES BY LEO FOR REMOTE WORKING :

Sekeping Victoria, Narrow Marrow, Macullum Connoisseurs, Bricklin Cafe Bar, Constant Gardener Coffee, Brown Pocket, Cat In The Box, The Pulp, Grind 22, The Question Mark, Feeka, The Hub, VCR, League Of Captains, Neighborhood CafeSea & Saw, Atlas Coffee Embassy, Just Want Coffee, Homies
Note: Normally I go to coffee shops on weekdays because they tend to be full during the weekends. These cafes are great places to get work done and do homework! The interior of the cafes also have a lot of natural lighting, so you won’t become easily sleepy!
