A cute cafe on the street, open-air and tiny, but very comfy - a great seat for people watching. The staff was super friendly and made us feel very welcome. Delicious little homemade biscuits, unique teas and drinks, and good strong coffee!

A tiny place which always has some people enjoying a good cup of coffee. You can choose between different kind of beans to make the most out of your coffee served with a sweet cookie.

Tiny coffee roaster set in a terrace shop in old Kuching. We had a latte and Americano made with their Sarawak blend. Strong with great depth but the latte had an after taste probably related to the milk. The place is tiny so seats are...More
