OMG, I love this cafe! From its instagrammable interior and cosy environment, to the pastries that are worth to die for! Personally, I’m head over heals for their salted egg yolk treats: you must try their Salted egg cronuts and Salted egg yolk croissant doughnuts! The salted egg cronuts are so good they disappear in an instant. And you can only purchase 4 cronuts per person.
Although this bakery is known for their pastries and breads, Dotty’s also serves amazing breakfast, lunch and dinner. Try their delicious salted egg soft shell crab spaghetti or any of the soups or salads.
If you’re not doing anything this weekend, drop by at Dotty’s for quick brunch or afternoon tea time. Simply the best bakery in PJ!

Since its first outlet opened in Langkawi in 2006, the bakery has been constantly gaining popularity and now there are more than ten outlets in Malaysia. I would totally recommend this bakery for breakfast as the bread and pastries are the freshest and the cafe itself smells just.. yummy.
P.S. My favorite is the cranberry cheese, perfect for a quick snack!
