Cafe Circe

Circled is a newly opened cafe nestled in the middle of Bukit Bintang’s most Instagrammable hotspot in Jalan Berangan. While the space is quaint and small, Circlé offers a Hong Kong-style street cafe vibe. The coffee comes highly recommended, with beans sourced from around the world by its owner, Wilson, who recently returned from overseas to start this little getaway. Come and taste a black iced homemade sourdough in small quantities, served with butter and kaya.
