“coffee in a beautiful old colonial house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

the house itself is worth going there for a coffee. i can't say much about the food, i had only coffee. but the house has been renovated and is so beautiful that i would really advise going. go inside and have a look around, go to the back and have a look at the garden. its such a nice inspiring beautiful place.

they have really great paintings as well and some funny t-shirts. definitely a place to go!!!

“Lovely food in lovely surroundings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Ate here during the Christmas period. The surroundings are really enjoyable and you can see that the owners have put a lot of work into restoring the joint. Food was top quality: fresh and tasty. Go there!!

“Real lovely place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

This is a must-go cafe which has highly recommended by our homestay hosts and their friend! The owner of this building tries to keep the Peranakan house in its original condition and he has done a fantastic job! Amidst the historical condition, he infused lots of artwork and cosiness into this place. A nice place for you to relax yourself in a quaint and cosy environment.

“Bagus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

Nice hidden place for great relaxation and coffee. We went there for breakfirst and was easy to find. It has a very relax atmosphere. We ordered our burger, bread toast and coffee. It was simple yet delicous. I will come back agian for the ambience.
