If you're looking to be ill-treated and love bad manners from the owner and the staffs, you've come to the right place.

The place is nostalgic, rustic (in a good way) and will make u wonder how they can sustain such business for so long. The roti bakar kaya (kaya toast) is crunchy but yet still fluffy. The kaya taste is very different from the commercial ones. I enjoyed the nasi tumpang as well (its rice coned in a banana leaf, i... More

Firstly does not open early, probly around 7pm. Don't go thinking of any extensive menu. But the locals consider it atreat to go to it. It is clean,not expensive, friendly service and what they serve is good.

Lousy food.. Lousy service.. Not recommended by our own relatives who have been staying here for so long and were loyal customers before this. And OVER-CHARGING for mere 'roti bakar' & half boiled eggs! A definite NO-NO anymore!

One of the good and pleasant breakfast in Kota Bharu town. Ordered baked bread and half-boiled eggs with white house signature coffee. This restaurant make their on butter for bread spread. Really nice place to have breakfast. One of the drawback is customer cannot take any picture of this restaurant.

We arrived at this iconic kopitiam at 9.30 pm and already it was full. It's very common to have to wait for tables here as the place is not very big but it's very popular. We ordered half boiled eggs and roasted bread with Kaya and butter. Frankly speaking, eggs are eggs. It's not that special that you can't find... More
