The kaya and coffee is good. But not when the service is pack. The boss will pull a Long face towards customer. It's fine. But not until we get scolded for not speaking in mandarin!?!?

This restaurant is a legend for the toast bread served with kaya, butter and half-boiled egg. Many people visited it for breakfast even on weekdays. Their nasi tumpang and nasi dagang are very well recommended too

I guess since it is Kota Bharu and it is a quite town at night, the locals will meet up here for coffee and toast bread. They also have quite a variety of choices which is good to try. Nasi Tumpang, Nasi Berlauk and its toast bread and egg is a must try.
