Very Nice Cafe

We tried the special burger with pork belly and it was really nice. It was one of the best burgers that I have eaten. The drinks, especially their red date and lemongrass drinks were special as well. The whole cafe eluded an artistic and garden-ly feeling. Will definitely visit again!

Beautiful cafe.. but no photo is allowed.. tried orange beer with low alcohol content.. nice try. Friendly & energetic crews... burger seems not bad but didn't manage to try because they were out of burger bun this evening.. will try again in future.

I am not a great burger eater but having tried to find reasonably-priced and edible western food in Melaka I decided to try my luck here for Sunday lunch. Glad I did; the service is friendly and efficient and the burgers are very tasty and well cooked. Not sure why they serve potato salad with fries as the side, so... More

While searching for a decent Nyonya restaurant without a queue out the door, I stumbled across the Baboon House. One look inside and I knew that my wife would love the place. Mixing the new with the old, it's a Chinese shop house converted to a cafe cum art gallery. Decorated with artworks and plants, it's very different in ambiance... More

Three of us decided to have lunch and agreed on a place where we could include dogs. My two dogs are not small, so I didn't bring mine, but my two other friends brought their Pug and Miniature Daschund, respectively. This was my first time. The first thing that struck me was the numerous signs prohibiting taking photos. They made... More

Most awesome place i ve been for long long time! Perfect combination of exquisite rustic interiors, unbelievable artworks, music and ppl all living in perfect harmony with nature. Sad i didn't manage to get back hm some of their home made rose liqueur which left the most sweet nostalgic taste. Sensational!

We had lunch here. The burgers were fine but nothing to write home about. The 4 points are relative to local standards, where it stood out as a safe choice. We had a very hard time finding the place using Google Maps, which put it in a completely different location. It is much closer to the river on Jalan Tun... More

I would say this is one of the best cafe/restaurant I have ever visited. The ambiance, garden-green-antique Malacca-style has been heavily implemented in their layout, I personally love this cafe the minute I went in. Let's talk about food & drinks, average price around RM15-20, drinks are mostly below RM10. Reasonably good ! Taste? Try it yourself and it will... More
