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?

We loved this little cafe in Melaka. The coffee was fabulous, our waitress encouraged us to try some local blends and we were not disappointed. We have a child with an egg allergy. Our waitress helped us select a delicious safe mango drink which our child loved. What a great find.

Calanthe Art Cafe is as it is, an art cafe. Once you step in, get ready to delve into a whirlwind of random artifacts from the past.

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!
