The best place for everyone to stay during the hot sun afternoon,like seriously..However, the foods are ordinary and somehow not tasty for my opinion. The beers and cocktails are worth to order.

Drinks are responsibly priced and enjoyed listening to live music. There was a young girl playing the guitar and singing on Friday evening, she was really good. Didn't try the food but the menu looked good. Nice bar and definitely worth a visit.

The Geographer's Cafe is located on historic Jonker Street and offers diners a mix of cuisines. It has a very relaxed feel, is quite good value and offers meals for children

Atmosphere is not bad for a hang out. Food wise was pretty average. Ordered fresh coconut juice but it was not cold. Fried rice was warm, not served hot. Good wifi strength. Price is decent.
