Great atmosphere, good location and very good, friendly staff. The Laksa, which is one of their specialities was not a disappointment and was delicious! Loved it.

The signage is not so clear so we actually went past it a couple of times before we realised that the art cafe is tucked at the back. The frontage says "13 States Coffee" but the front cafe is part of the same establishment. After ordering your meal, you can spend some time exploring the place and check out the... More

Stopped here for a drink after walking along Jonker Street. Small cozy eatery with nice quaint decorations and lots of wall messages. Had drinks and tried the chendol. It was just ok but nothing to shout about. Prices were a bit up market but location is good within the tourist district.

4 out of 5 visitors to Melaka tells me the nyonya laksa rocks. Well here's my description of it: the curry/broth is bland unless you put in the dry chilli sambal- even with the sambal, there's no laksa kick, not even a hint of coconut milk taste. The condiments were not as tasty as they should; fish cake was salty,... More

Went there a year ago after a wedding. Saw lots of photos from friends and told myself gotta go here. Didn't get the best table as it was packed. Then my tummy was full also, so didnt order any food. Just ordered coffee and drinks. The drinks were freat. And i mostly love the artsy decor. Must visit place.
