Probably your best bet for a coffee shop/café in Malacca. We went here twice during our short stay in the town. Also a good bet for a Western style breakfast.

This is the famous coffee place that serve the difference coffee from the 13 states in Malaysia. It's nice if you are able to grab a sit outside to do some people watching. This place is quiet as it's not located on the main street of the famous Jonker Street but near enough if you want to do some shopping... More

If you are looking for a nice, cool & quiet place to rest after exploring the historical town of Malacca, this art cafe provides the ambience, a variety of local coffee and... More

We had a couple of breakfasts here, both with extra juice and compared to other places it worked out good value for money. The deco is nice, malaysian with arty twist, atmosphere is chilled and service very friendly and helpful. In the city centre just off Jonker Street this is a great spot offering local and western dishes.

I came here a few times with my friends. Most of the time i will order their famous calanthe laksa. One of the best nyonya laksa in town. A little bit pricy though, but a great place to hang out and chill plus good food and beverages.
