I was in need of an espresso and I found this little place on the street. The coffee is just exquisite and it is served in pottery that clearly is made in Sarawak. There are tables outside to sip your coffee and do some sight...More

Great place to sample Sarawak Liberica coffee, friendly knowledgeable staff in a low key shopfront that full of coffee and tea paraphernalia. We took home some Sarawak Liberica beans, they make for great drinking - wish we’d bought home more.

Seats are few, so don't expect to find one when you arrive (especially in large groups). It's affordable, aromatic, and service is exceptional.

Seeing many customers gave me the urge to try its ice-cold cappuccino especially so on a hot afternoon. IT DID NOT DISAPPOINT. Totally mesmerized by its fragrance and smoothness. A little bitter, so what? A piece of kek lapis was icing on the cake!

Situated at the heart of the city set amid the hustle bustle I find serenity in this warm coffee house. It is hard to get a parking spot especially day time but this doesn’t deter me from going back to get a cuppa coffee.

RM6.50 for a latte that comes in a large cup, very affordable. I've been a big fan of gourmet coffee for years but I'm no expert, but I'll say this though, I didn't find the latte impressive, seems to taste a bit over-diluted, the larger...More

I can totally see why this place has so many great reviews! You can smell the amazing coffee before you even see the cafe. The menu is simple, no frills (no “pumpkin spice lattes” here) delicious coffee. It’s the perfect spot to take refuge from...More

Here’s the best Sarawak Coffee for local and traveller must try it. Price is reasonable for every consumer - MYR 5-10 for the drinks. You also can buy the coffee powder based on which flavour you like and the peanuts cookies -plain/chocolate flavour. Sunday is...More

It truly is only about coffee and tea here. You could get some great insta shots here if that is important to you but I just care about a great cup of coffee. The kids just had to watch us drink as there was nothing...More

Okay, this place does have 5-star coffee. No doubt about it - esp. given the long lines. However, I was miffed about the service. The first night we got there 5 mins after closing and they wouldnt take us. I understand, but when I asked...More

From what I remember, its pretty tight and there isnt much space. Only a few tables and alot of people standing around. So I would say NO. Not sure about WIFI
