The is a wonderful little coffee house in Melaka with good quality food at a reasonable price, the staff are very friendly staff and the interior is pretty cool. It's much bigger inside than you initially think with plenty of funky decoration. You can choose from the 13 states of Malaysia coffee menu, or the many other options available. The... More

This is an easily missed Cafe so be on the lookout! It seems quite simple from the outside, but when you finally enter, it is simply mesmerizing! The buildings in this area are narrow, but long! Be sure to explore all the back rooms before choosing a seat. The decor is unique and original, and a mix of antique collections... More

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. From old TV converted into aquariums, antique furniture to quirky quotes, this art cafe will blow your mind away. The staff will even adjust the lighting for picture taking, Haha. Suitable for a...

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.
