My favourite cafe has been closed for a few months. Initially I thought it was of temporary nature since the business was good, but now confirmed it was no longer in business since the barrister had left. A pity as the coffee was one of the best I ever had.

Cafe is closed since Oct. Pity because this cafe served very good coffee and chai latte. Hope to locate the barista elsewhere.

It was a pity that Coffee Junkie has closed down. The setting was extraordinary when I was here 6 months back. Not easy to find similar cafe here as many new ones are commercialized.

Stop by to try the coffee from barista Justin but it's now closed. Understand from friends that the Justin has just reopened the well missed Daily Dose at Stewart Lane, to be opened in Nov. Looking forward to visit DD again.

went there to try the chai tea, but the owner informed me that he has closed the cafe for a few months to rearrange the stuff in his shop. He's looking at reopening the cafe only at the end of the year.

This was hands down the coolest cafe I've ever been too. The "junk" which has been collected and used inside the cafe is unreal and ads to the vibe of the cafe. The coffee was the best I've ever had. This added to the ambience of the cafe made for a relaxing morning. A must see in George Town!

This is a very cool place in the centre of Georgetown. Great coffee served by self-confessed coffee addict - Justin.To make things even better, this cafe is half junk shop and half serious film buff. A great combination, even if the coffee was a little on the pricey side. Keep up the great work, Justin.
