After a stroll along Jonkers, we decided to relax at this uniquely decorated cafe that was flocked by tourists . In my opinion, the service and food was decent enough though we realize there were slight confusion in the service during full house.

They have a very simple menu with only a few dishes, but while they don't have the variety of food it is nice and the portions are just right that you still have space for some other local Jonker Street "Street food". The Laksa is ok for tourists as its not too "hot".

The decoration of this place is really cozy, they have put a lot of effort into it and you'll want to stay here for some time to enjoy the atmosphere. The variety of... More

If you order a cup of Kopi O, they will also add a heaping spoonful of sugar for extra sweetness. I did not know this and when my cup of coffee provided too... More
