Calanthe is a quaint (and definitely hipster) cafe. Decor aside, it's main attraction would be that it offers coffee from all 13 states in Malaysia. The variety of local coffee means that any visitor would be satisfied. There are shakes and non-coffee drinks available, and also an impressive food menu. This cafe is a must-visit cafe!

We stopped at the Calanthe Art cafe to have coffee a we had heard so much about it. The coffee we tried was the Johor and the Perak blends. Was very good, albeit a bit on the pricier side. Especially recommend the Johor coffee (hot). Ambience was good, with the interiors decorated with used soda cans and old utensils. Cool... More

A very nice place to hangout. Nice food & if youre a coffee-addict, you would be happy to try coffees from all the 13 states in Malaysia! e.g: Coffee Selangor, Coffee Johor, etc). The deco is superbly nice & unique & i would say that the price is reasonable & affordable, too!

Visited for an evening meal the first night in town, visited for the lunch the following. They had a chicken in pumpkin sauce dish on the specials, which should be added to the main menu because it's fantastic. I had the local brownie, warm, drizzled with chocolate sauce which was on another level and exactly how a brownie should be.... More

We heard the raving reviews about their laksa. Indeed the laksa is very good. Thick coconut cream. Lots of aroma. Fishballs were chewy n bouncy...just like what I would expect from good Fishballs. The variety of coffee is excellent. Local vs imported. They have it all. It's nice place to relax though at times it maybe over crowded at meal... More

This cafe is really a must. It's nicely decorated, has a variety of seating options in a green atmosphere and interesting coffee choices, which is the main theme. We had breakfast and dinner there and enjoyed both.

This is a quirky, artistic cafe with a beautiful environment. 13 states coffee is so much fun! I had the Calanthe laksa, which is excellent. Very enjoyable experience. Service with a smile, although we did receive food before drinks (which shouldn't be).

This is a small place tucked down a side street. They offered a huge range of soft drinks and tea's and coffee's. We opted for tasty noodle dishes, one with a coconut bias and one with stingray. My partner went for the chicken with cheese and rtice which was also very good. Friendly staff Another good choice on our tour... More
