The coffee served here is state of the art. Their 13 state coffees are worth a try. Can't recommend them all since we've only had 8 of them, but we were never disappointed :) Less then RM4,5 a cup makes this place a natural pit-stop in Melaka. Great place!

Kudos for the nice ambiance. Judging from the artworks adorning the whole cafe, the owners have taken much effort. However, service is slow and the iced Selangor coffee turned out to be one of the worst coffees i've had in a long while. Such a pity that no effort was made to churn out a good coffee to compliment the... More

The timing stated on many websites are uncorrected. We arrived and it was closed. Luckily we tried again and managed to find them open on our last day in Melaka. This place is awesome! The decor is unique, the coffee very special and the people friendly. Worth a visit!!!

Good coffee and I quite like the laksa served there. Venture into the interior of the cafe and see the nice display done up.

We happened to pass this café while walking through Jonker St and decided to pop in for dinner. The décor is attractive in a homely and cosy way. Food was quite good and I tried their claypot laksa. The taste is unique as they added mint sauce to the laksa. I only tried the normal coffee and the caramel dessert.... More

The food that they served was pretty tasty but this time round we only had room for coffee. My wife ordered a coffee with a scoop of ice cream and it tasted good. Will order their food menu the next time we visit this place again.

I was rushing for breakfast as I had to leave Melaka by 11am. Checked online and found this nicely-reviewed cafe which posted on its website that it opens at 8.30am on weekends. I arrived at 9.30am after a long walk, looking forward to a hearty breakfast only to be welcomed by a closed door. Enough said! To be fair, I... More
