Don't missed it!

The historical + famous coffee house in KB. Always lots of people. The half boiled egg and roti bakar here - Best! Roti bakar + milo ais = perfect match. Love it so much!

Have some half boil eeg or two, while you are at it. Siting on those Old Hainanese Kopitiam... More

Gotta try the half boiled eggs and toasted bread with fine quality butter and 'kaya' with cheap price. The coffe and tea are nice to have it here.. The restaurant / cafe is an old building situated in the city centre. Easy access by car or walking distance.

Good place for a simple quick breakfast. It's slightly pricey compared to the other kopitiam's but still affordable.

If you must have wanted to know why this famous coffee houses ... it's because of his "Roti Kahwin" or Toast served with half boiled egg. At White House Kopitiam, they make their own bread and the like. And what it is like: it is thick, sticky and sweet. Eaten with steamed bread and butter baked good, and plus with... More

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
