The area around Armenia street is brimming with both cafes and tourists. We were in town completing errands and found Ecco Cafe. The homemade pasta and soup were both really good. The juice was also freshly squeezed. Highly recommended and would visit again. two drinks and our lunches came to RM47 - so an affordable lunch option

Apple juice second only to Copella. And that uses 85% of the uk's apples so is practically the perfect 10 of Apple juices. I also like the innocent apple juices but I think this one was better. Also the pasta and coffee was delicious says Andy.

Simple kopitiam setting but food bursting with flavor. Spaghetti and pizzas were good as well. Mango lassi is the best

The foods here are nice and delicious. The ambient is good. Suitable for friends to chill especially at a raining day. Must try the garlic pizza as well the Lemom Infused Chicken. It is unique and delicious. Been there twice for this month!

I went there very late, after our dinner, but the shop was still open, a young guy was there at the bar. He recommended us his mango lussi which was his famous drink. Fresh mango, yogurt and few ice, it made us slept well that night, thanks.

Found this restaurant while rambling about the streets in the morning. Menu looked good, interior was pleasant and although they don't sell wine, we were told they were happy to let us bring our own for a small corkage fee (RM 10). They do serve beer. We were back in the early evening and had a mixed salad with an... More

Please note - location is no longer on Chulia Street. It is now on the corner of Lebuh Cannon and Lebuh Acheh. Stumbled upon this little gem by accident - and we are so glad we did. I'm always skeptical of ordering pizza overseas but one month of hawker stalls left us with a pizza craving! Ecco did not disappoint.... More

Small cafe, very relaxing. Small but delicious choice of pasta, pizza and world best brownies. Very very nice to hang around

Moved near the intersection of Lebuh Cannon and Lebuh Ache. Very nice service and delicious pizza and pasta. Prices are in the 20s but I think it is well worth it. Didn't try the dessert but it looks great.

We went to check out this restaurant but could not find it so checked in with a local on Chulia St who said it had been boarded up for about 2 months. Went to Reggae Mansion instead and had a delicious Hawaiian pizza (fresh pineapple makes such a difference) and Spaghetti carbonara. If you feel like Italian check out this... More
