Table Of Contents:
Reservations at Tapestry require a minimum of 6 pax. At least according to the automated message that greets you when you ring them.
Besides the lofty windows, the highlight of dining at Tapestry is the Rise & Shine breakfast/ lunch menu:
As it includes items like their popular Rise & Shine Eggs Benedict, Rise & Shine Egg Drop, Avocado Toast, smoothie bowls, and more.
Furthermore, you can add sides like beetroot-cured salmon, grilled halloumi cheese, mashed potatoes, or grilled portobello mushrooms to your meal.
It’s nice that their menu has markings for what is vegetarian-friendly, nut or seed-friendly.
When it comes to beverages, they have a satisfying coffee menu. There are non- coffee options but not many.
For the healthy-conscious, there are fruit and vegetable juice blends. Other than these, Tapestry has a few wine options too.
PS: We did see Muslim customers dining here
Tapestry used to be open for dinner but too, but this has been temporarily stopped for the foreseeable future.

Ease Of Parking At Tapestry
On weekends, you may have to depend on valet service in the area (RM10 per car) for nearby parking options.
Because this area has many trendy cafes and eateries that are popular with the local and expat crowd. Crowds typically taper off around 2pm here.
Ambiance At Tapestry
For those that enjoy taking photos, there are plenty of opportunities to do so at Tapestry. Not just inside the café, but outside as well. There is a well-manicured garden in front of the entrance.
A long bench in front of the loft windows with the word Tapestry across always attracts influencers and the like.
When you step into Tapestry, there is display table for their cakes of the day. To the right is the coffee bar.
And on the left, is a seating area segregated by the rest of the café with a pair of high red curtains.
The air-conditioned café opens up to a larger atrium with natural sunlight streaming down. Yellow and gold tapestries hang down from the ceiling. And there are trees in the middle of the café.
Table layouts in this part of the café are suitable for large groups although there are one or two small tables for couples.
Service At Tapestry
While Tapestry has many staff, they are all incredibly busy during full house. But they will come if you flag them down. And they’re patient in taking or explaining orders too.
On busy days, expect food to come around 30 minutes after ordering.
Surprisingly, risotto didn’t take as long as we though it would (less than 30 minutes).
Food At Tapestry
All 5 of us ordered a different main:
- Wagyu beef burger
- Salt beef burger
- Pan seared chicken
- Butternut squash risotto
- Rise & Shine Eggs Benedict with salmon
Each of these mains were well-seasoned and tasty in their own right. If they do use MSG, we did not detect any.
Note that the eggs benedict was unusual because it features hash browns for the base instead of an English muffin.
Regardless, we would order each of these items again.
Coffee is good here. And drinks on the whole, are decent.
But those with a sweet tooth should ask for sugar if ordering the matcha latte. Because the matcha latte by default, doesn’t seem to have any sugar in it. However, the matcha latte is finely strained.
Pricing At Tapestry
Food portions are small at Taspestry. Big eaters may have to order a dessert or appetizer along with a main. For small eaters though, the portions are nice without having to share.
The ingredients they use for the mains are of high quality and not cheap. Pomegranate seeds for the salad, fresh herbs for the risotto, homemade fries and milky mashed potatoes for the meat mains.
And given the professional service and dining ambiance of Tapestry, we think the price is somewhat justified.
Tapestry is one of the more impressive cafes in KL. It’s worth the splurge if you have an event to celebrate. Or just want to indulge in a decadent brunch.
Just make sure to avoid peak times on weekends. Large groups must call ahead to book a table.
