The perfect bolt hole to escape the hustle bustle and heat of Malacca. You'll find a warm welcome under cooling fans, proper coffee, cold beers from the fridge, home made cheesecake and chilled out tunes. Owner Yalu grew up here and has converted this typical Chinese town house into a coffee shop + guest house. The street itself is packed... More

A small cafe right in the middle of an alley which you could enjoy the night with the great host who will share with you about Melaka. You will find yourself surrounded by 60th to 70th style of deco. Place for you to share some story with each other without raising your voice. Great place with reasonable price of drinks.... More

我很喜欢这里,因为这里的感觉很像家。老板们很友善,又热情。他们很热情的告诉我们马六甲有名的美食,地方。我们就住在咖啡馆的楼上,地方很干净又特别。它特别的地方,要自己去感受才能知道。我很喜欢这里,你们要自己去感受哦。 最特别的咖啡馆是这里没卖美食,只卖饮料。 我们自己可以打包JONKER STREET 夜市的美食在这里用餐!哈哈。 highly recommended this cafe shop because this is a place to communicate and close with each other. you can non stop/enjoying talk with loud(coz only a cafe shop there),you can feel the shop owner and guests are welling to chit chat and share their story.you can bring your own delicious food and dine in.you can...

When i travel to a new place, the first thing i think about is the coffee shops there because i truly like coffee culture. So when i heard that Yalu invited us to his coffee shop, i felt so excited and admired him since he has his own coffee shop. The Brigde Street Cafe is tiny but very cute, very... More

For the first time in Melaka, you need a place to stop and think about your last or next experience. With a friendly smile and big ambition inside, Yalu sets up his own business to have more chances in meeting with new pack-backers, chatting with them and understand more about life - "The bridge street cafe" is just not a...
