Very nice place, cool decorations

Food was alright, a little bit more expensive than usual. Staff was helpful, a bit slow probable due to the Ramadan?

Just down a side street surrounded by greenery is this lovely cafe. The range and types of coffees are amazing and the staff very knowledgable on all, I wasn't quite sure what iced coffee to order and explained the taste I was after and got the perfect one. Visited it on many occasions.

Its full of kitschy art, having said that the coffees from all over Malaysia was a nice touch. The food was average. And the sawdust cake disappointing.

Friendly staff! They have a range of coffees, refreshments, and ice cream. I especially liked the java chip milkshake and the crispy cuttlefish. Go here for refreshments, but they also have a full service menu that looks tasty. I will go here again!

Famous with its coffee, the great variety of coffee you can choose from perhaps could attract you to visit it repeatedly. I tried its laksa and found it tastes better than the laksa of Jonker 88. A very good place to relax and enjoy coffee.

At first glance, nothing seems to be special about this place. But do not let the unassuming look of this cafe fool you. Located in the heart of the old quarters of Melaka (i.e Jonker Walk), this cafe is certainly a great place to hang out and take things easy. Like the title says, this is definitely a haven for...

One of my favorite spots at malacca , great variety of coffee (13 States!) and food :) Love the retro deco of the cafe , the owner really put in the effort to live up this place. Definitely a good place to have a tea break and pass time in the hot afternoon , you won't be bored :)

Food is good, claypot emee is really delicious and cucumber lime squash is refreshing as weather was too hot. Staff are friendly and price is reasonable. Highly recommended.
