The term ‘aesthetic’ refers to something that pleases the eye. Human beings are simple creatures, we see something we like and we are bound to gravitate towards it. So, when we spot cafes that are aesthetically pleasing, we can’t help but be enamoured by them. These aesthetic cafes are all the rage nowadays. People, especially those between the ages of 15 to 35, tend to visit these cafes during their free periods. I, myself, should admit to being a part of this craze. I love to feast on the modern and minimalistic vibes these cafes present.
If you are feeling left out, and want to join the aesthetic cafe craze, read on. Here are 10 aesthetic cafes located around Petaling Jaya for you to go cafe hopping around.
