We came across this place by accident and looked at two pages of the menu. Silly! Those were the only two pages with local food. The butter chicken I had was too creamy and had too much chilli and no other spices. No subtlety at all. Maybe the eastern food was better...

Calanthe Art Cafe is located at Jalan Hang Kasturi, 75200 Melaka, Malaysia. It's open from 8.30 am to 11 pm. It's a lovely and homely cafe with a wide menu selection in terms of coffee, tea and other beverages. It's quiet there. An oasis of peace in a very busy historical coastal city. They have coffee from all 13 Malaysia... More

We came here for coffee twice during our stay in Melaka and we absolutely loved the playful and colorful decor. We got both hot and cold coffees on seperate trips and found them to be great asian style coffees. The service was also very friendly and we ended up chatting to one of the barristers for a good while. He... More

My first visit, I tried the Ayam Pongteh and I really love it. I've tried various Ayam Pongteh from various nyonya food stalls, and this really is a winner. I wanted to go back on my 3rd day, but came too early, they were only serving the breakfast menu. So I opt for their Nasi Lemak. Having such a great... More

Best coffee in Melaka! Fantastic menu. I would have come here every day had I known about it earlier. Home-brewed ice coffee to go!

This café had a really youthful vibe with a bit of nostalgic touch. I only tried the iced coffee. A tad disappointing because the ice diluted it. Try opting for the hot coffee, it might taste better. Love the concept of bringing all 13 state's coffee in 1 place.

You can easily spot this cafe as the outside look which with lots of potted plants, set it apart from the neighbours. When you entered, the place seemed small but actually you can go inside and more seating are available. The cafe is known for its original 13 blends of coffee named after 13 states of Malaysia. When asked the... More
