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!

This coffee house has been around for years. It serves the best toast and coffee. Can also opt to eat the pre-pack 'nasi lemak, 'nasi berlauk' etc2... but need to be hurry as those pre-pack food usually sold out by 9pm

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.

This old cafe famous for its kopi o. Still remember the aroma and the roti bakar and kaya was superb. The taste was better back in the days. The atmosphere was ok. You can feel how was the old days kopitiam feel like. As for the billing part, yes it indeed was a mess because the owner is old but... More

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

Finally found this place after searching a bit, set back from the road a little opposite Padang Merdeka. The coffee's really good, and even though I'd already eaten breakfast I couldn't resist ordering the 'kaya roti', and to be fair pretty glad I did, the coconut jam wasn't like anything I'd tasted before, so sweet. Good atmosphere, friendly quick service... More

Went there after hearing good reviews of it from locals and those visiting Kota Bharu. Have to say that the visit was worth it. They serve the usual breakfast fare (half-boiled eggs, toast, etc.), but the novelty here is that they only do so at night! They're open only from 9pm onwards, take note. Must-try items include the toast (with... More

We used to go to this kopitiam when we were kids and enjoyed it. That was 20 years ago. We went there recently and were appalled at the unfriendly and slow service. The food was below average. The waitresses were avoiding eye contact when we wanted to order. We were not allowed to take photographs of ourselves inside the "restaurant".... More
