Arty and nonpretentious cafe; delicious laksa, good and friendly service. Photograph friendly; unlike a certain other nearby cafe. Enjoy.

The Place was recommended for the Lasksa. It was very good, we had that and an appetizer of Buffalo?? spring rolls. Both were very good. As it was later in the evening we passed on the 13 or so varieties of coffee that they had. Nice experience.

We were impressed with the large serving of Laska though we note that the cafe is more famous for it's coffee. The service staff were friendly and polite. The interior of the cafe is large and has interesting mural. Nice place to chill the afternoon away.

However, we only ordered Hot Caffe Glaze and another fruity coffee which bit sweet to us. Nice and cozy environment and will definitely come here again to taste local... More

It offers a wide array of coffees and my favourites are green tea latte and black & white. Their laksa is awesome. My friend from China loves it so much. Great atmosphere and photo taking scenes!

We read the reviews so thought we would go for an evening snack and coffee. However getting there and seeing the range of smoothies, we went with them. Being unsure of which one to choose the staff were great and suggested one. It was interesting, good and not at all what i was expecting. The food is brilliant as well.... More

Nice looking restaurant where you can drink and eat for very reasonable prices. The laksa was a hit! One of the better throughout our trip in Malaysia. They also did their best to make the place cozy, unlike other local restaurants/pubs.
