Was there in the evening and there were plenty of mosquitos which marred my visit! Plus service was rather slow and the staff there including the manager had no concept of what is an extra shot of espresso in my Cappuccino despite selling an extensive array of gourmet coffee. Guess what, they charged me for the full price of a... More

We were lucky to find this restaurant on Jonkers street on the corner. Great place to people watch. They had a variety of different foods and the chicken we had was delicious! They also serve wine and beer which can sometime be a problem in some restaurants

Found this by accident as it was about to rain. Good food, interesting music and atmosphere. A good place to watch the world go by on 'bonkers street'. We will be back again!

Came here 3 times in 2 days. Really nice vegetarian food which was great because it's hard to find in the Chicken Rice capital of Malaysia! Try the banana chocolate cake and the sour plum juice.

Attentive staff, great food and brilliant location! They have a lot of vegetarian food here but don't let it scare you off as the taste is so good! Location is great in the top/middle of jonker walk. Nice place for a lunch and late night dinner. Live music in the evenings and the street is filled with people. I'll be... More

Great place with wifi for a good chill out. The sour plum and lime drink was served in a huge and tall glass. The cappuccino is great too.

On the first night in Malacca, we passed by Geographer cafe and was impressed by a lady singing with the live band there. The cafe looked packed, with a lot of onlookers standing around, enjoying the music. We figured this may be a good place to drop by the next day, as the cafe looked really too full for that... More

After walking around for a while, we decided to grab a bite to eat. We love Malaysian food and we decided, on New Year's Day, to start being vegetarian. This is somewhat difficult in China because we can't speak Mandarin and there is so much meat in the food in most restaurants. However, in Malaysia, where English is a primary... More

Stopped over at this place during a walk around Jonker. The place looked inviting, so dropped in for a drink to refresh. Though the place was not packed, service was poor. A few waiters were walking around but not taking orders - had to flag one of them down to take our orders. The group of us ordered coffees and... More
