There's no Secret Service

No frills, old school coffee shop. The kaya is light, sweet and leave you begging for more. Add in the butter and you are in heaven. Perfectly half boiled eggs too. Nice place for breakfast or supper. They are close in the afternoon.

A lovely place to chill out. You can have a cup of coffee, a teh tarik, nasi lemak if you like, besides the delicacies of Kelantan like nasi lauk, nasi dagang or just roti bakar with what white house is famous for, its kaya or egg jam.

We were driving from Tumpat to Dungun and decided to make a breakfast stop here based on the reviews. I wouldn't say the food is terribly good but we did enjoy our drinks (simple old school kopitiam style) and the roti kahwin (big slabs of toast on which you slather some butter and kaya). As for the pre-packed nasi lemak,... More

I was informed by several locals that this place is often closed at the owner's pleasure and the reasons are mostly unascertainable. However, I was in luck as during the time of visit, they were open for business. This place was recommended by my husband as it used to be my late father in law's favourite place for breakfast whenever... More

Many people hate their service. I'm quite neutral about this since I come from Penang where sometimes you have to wait for almost 2 hours for a plate of Char Koay Teow. I have fond memories of this place. I was in Kelantan at the age around 5, and the smell and the colour of the red bricks of this... More

I came here twice in my trip to Kelantan. Pleasant visit!! The price of the coffee is not really high than we expected and we came here at midnight! Surprising it was very good! The roti Bakar made me thinks about White House and the uniqueness of the Kaya! Penang can't find such Kaya to be amazed and one thing... More

This was what I saw in my last visit then no more go there. Two ladies were sat a table infront of us waiting for the table to be wiped dry. Waited for some time nothing was done so one of the lady took few pieces of tissue from the box that placed on the table. When the shop owner's... More
