Great vibe

Cafe/bar that's been around for yonks with a great location on Jonker's Walk. Yes it is very touristy, and yes it's a little pricey but it has a really great vibe, especially Friday and Saturday nights when they shut the road to traffic and the bar spills out onto the pavement and the live music... read more

Found the food to lack flavour and the juices too watery. There is an extensive menu which is good in terms of catering to various tastes, but it definitely lacked quality.

This is a reasonable bar in the heart of Jonker Street, the beer is cold and cheap-ish and the food is a mix of western fare and also some local dishes that have been adapted for tourist palates. A good bet if you don't want anything too challenging for an evening meal.

A cafe that is nestled in the midst of hustle & bustle of Jonker St. Nice & quiet ambience whether you visit in the day or night. Relatively good selection of beverages; alcoholic & non.. A place where you can easily while away your day. Definitely a place to return to..

We Had lunch here and I was not that impressed . It seems like just another upmarket trendy tourist place, the type that the more you pay the less you get. Catering to Tourist who like Western food (even if disguised as Asian ) and hip Malays / Singaporeans who think spaghetti is so cool . It look like it... More

Came here for coffee and a quick bite. We were disappointed. Neither coffee nor fruit juices were nice, and the food was by far (!) the worst we had in Malacca. Service was kind but slow. This may be a nice place for jazz night, but as a cafe or restaurant, it fell far short.

I ordered a real coconut drink, served directly from its shell. It's not sweet as the coconut is too young to be cut and served
