This is the first hidden secret on my Hidden Secrets of Kuala Lumpur cycling tour. The cafe is hardly hidden but, on my own, I would probably just have walked right past. This is what I like about tours, which encourage participants to venture where they might otherwise never tread. You learn more, too. Over breakfast, my guide Elena explains the cafe’s history and points out wall panels that relate the story of the kapitans (Chinese tin-mine owners) who developed Old Market Square outside in the 1880s.
