We had heard a lot about this cafe and had to visit it. Must say that it didn't disappoint. The decor is colonial and they have both indoor and outdoor seating. They also have an air cooled area indoors. We ate the vegetarian ramen noodles and had cold coffee. The ramen bowl was huge and I had trouble finishing it.... More

Good selection of food and drinks. Lots of dishes are vegetarian, for non-vegetarians' this limits the choice. Rather expensive. Good atmosphere and location. Service could be better.

We have been going to the Geographers for many years and always enjoy the ambience and variety of visitors from all over the world. Food and drink are good, staff are friendly and located on a corner makes it the perfect place to just sit and watch the world go by!

We were a bit sceptical at first due to the slightly touristy look of the menu, but the veggie food was simply very tasty, the atmosphere good and the staff friendly. Can't go wrong!

This is kind of bar come cafe. The food menu is reasonable but the actual food is a bit mixed. The fish and chips was good but the Mango Thai Chicken a bit of a let down (not much dry chicken with a lot of coating) The staff were friendly enough

It is right on the center of Jonker walk, nice ambience...jazz music by local artist until 11 PM, she was quite passionate in singing. Food was ok, drinks were slightly high priced, but that comes with music I guess.

Popular with travellers. Good place to stop for lunch or drinks when walking around Jonkers. Evenings there is sometimes relaxed live music. Food & drinks all of decent quality.

I love this restaurant. i love the fact that i can order tons of vegetarian food and get my wine at the same time. YUMMY VEGETARIAN curry ramen mee, satay, fragrant rice!! The waiter was so good with kids and my kids were not one bit cranky there even thought it was dinner time. Will definitely be coming back here... More
