Cool back patio, poor latte

You gotta learn how to make a latte guys. There's tons of YouTube videos on it. The milk tasted like cheese from boiling it with the steam wand. Use less milk. Expensive and poorly done.

I'm not sure why this place is so highly rated. The satay sauce was very disappointing, food is not better than the average. The decoration is not anything special and not a place to come back for a second time. All said, I haven't tried the coffee which seems like the specialty of this place, so take my review with...

It's a nicely decorated, relaxed café, a fun place to drop by. And as our Singaporese neighbours were raving about the laksa, we surely don't want to advise against eating here either. We probably just had bad luck with the Indian inspired mutton dish, which we didn't find very tasty but was also still cold in the middle, so not... More

Dropped in for a coffee prior to starting a day out on Jonker's. While we can't comment on the food, since we didn't order any, the coffee was excellent. The range is fairly astounding - they have the usual espresso based coffees, but they actually are relative average. What you should try are their local range of coffees. We had... More

Worst chicken chop I've ever had.. plus I spent so much money on it! Drinks are not that bad .. To my understanding, some of the drinks are named after ex-employees :) Desserts are terrible.. Don't order the brownie..

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
