What a great lunch and ambience. Suspect I may travel from KL just for a hamburger! We have been to Melaka several times but this meal tops the list

I visit Melaka frequently and never tire of the Baboon house. They have introduced a policy of a closed gate where you need to ring before gaining entry. I guess this may be a way to control numbers, anyway it works and the vibe is as ever laid back. Great burgers, coffee and tea and perfect for reading the Sunday... More

Winnie was very nice to us and my kids loved the food. Beautiful place. i can see myself spending my whole afternoon here. They even packed frozen lamb patties and buns for me to take back to Singapore. Absolutely the highlight of my trip to Malacca,

This was my place where my first date with my man chosen. We've reached here around 1130am and walk-in for the very first time. I am surprised with the lovely atmosphere. Quite artistic. (Btw, no photo-shooting allowed inside the restaurant. I think the owner want us to enjoy the meal session instead of busy uploading pics xD ) I've tried... More

We stopped at the Baboon House for a quick drink and we were surprised by it's original menu of drinks and it's unique interior. Apart from a brief wait for the waiter to let us in (you can't just walk in) the service was accommodating and friendly. The drinks we had were refreshing and original. They are made in the... More

Really enjoyed my burger and coffee here. The atmosphere of the restaurant is lovely and the service was good. Definitely more expensive than other places but well worth it. Would give it five stars but the no photos rule felt real pretentious and the bathrooms should be updated. Like another reviewer said, the address on Google Maps is incorrect. Same... More

I have visited the Baboon over the years but the last visit was shocking, not by the closed door with dining rules, but by how the cafe manager Winnie treated me and my two friends with discrimination. Three of us were first seated in a small round low table but we soon saw a nearby table for four available. We... More

Have to wait for someone to buzz us in but it is good because it is unique. One of the guy recommend this place. The food is okay taste better burger somewhere else not in Melaka of course. Maybe this place can be the best burger in town. The staffs were amazing and the restaurant as well. You should try... More
