Great stop on a hot day

Called in 2 days in a row to cool down and get a drink and bite to eat. Staff pleasant and food nice. Nice to sit under spray mist and fan on a hot humid day.

Great location on the corner where you can watch the world go by along Jonker Walk. The chicken satay is good as are the rice paper rolls. All washed down with a refreshing Geographer non alcoholic similarly named cocktail.

Is not difficult to look for this place -old yellow corner building- and is good to chill at this place especially at night where I can take a few pint of beer while enjoying the great music there, very relaxing place.

Went there for lunch. The staff was not observant and we found our own tables and had to call the staff to give us menus. Service was slow as the staffs were busy and running around. The food was slightly on a higher price (for a local) and the quality was not there. The food had a reasonable portion. I... More

this cafe is located at the heart of Jonker Street. It is just at the perfect place where you wanna wait for your friends or to rest your tired legs. I dont usually dine here, I do more drinking here. Drinking while looking at the crowds gives me a very special feeling and emotion. I like the live music and,... More

By Brother in law described this as a must visit place in Maleka. Yes the place is great for a drink and listen to live music, however the Chicken sate we ordered was described by all as the worst they had ever experienced, with comments like how could they get something so simple so wrong. It was so bad nothing... More

Visited Geographer Cafe at night during the night market. It's very happening and there is live band in the cafe. The place is full with people gathering. Nice place to have a drink and relax after a tiring day.
