Crowded

Good place.. Great food. However it's always crowded. Staff is also good, however they got the order wrong. In all fairness, we ordered multiple times. Getting a table was a pain. They also have seating on the first floor, however they didn't open that even though the ground floor was full.

I stopped at the Geographer's Cafe every day during my visit to Melaka. It is centrally located and has a great selection of food and drinks, friendly service and great staff. Tested a few vegetarian dishes like Curry Ramen and the Fragrant Rice, which were both very good. It's located along the main tourist mile, so there is a lot... More

We literally stumbled upon this restaurant as we were walking up and down Jonker's Walk. Tired from the sweltering sun and bogged down by the shopping bags, we decided to take a chance with this cafe, and just loved it. The staff are extremely friendly, and the food is outstanding; and of course, great value for money

I went there one morning, and I was the only customer at that time. The staff was friendly and I ordered really fast, but the food took 30 min to come. I ordered a local coffee and that wasnt great. It has good looks and reasonably charged

Excellent watering hole where the drink is fairly priced and the food very tasty . Sit at a table near the street and watch the world go by and this being Melaka where the pedestrians travel faster than the motorists. Several healthy menu options and vegetarians dishes.

A great place to eat. The coconut was delicious as was the food we all ate. The cafe has good ambience and it was a nice experience eating there although we couldnt eat in the restaurant as it was full.

An excellent location, with a fantastic atmosphere and great live entertainment. Ok, a gourmet restaurant it's not, but the service was friendly and prompt and the food was good Most definatly a place to meet friends, kick back, watch the world go by relax. Remember you;re in Junker Street, Melaka.
