If you are passing through Melaka, you absolutely MUST stop at this wonderful cafe. We pitched up at 2pm needing a 'breakfast' stop and despite the fact they were in full 'lunch' flow, they served up a range of DELICIOUS fresh fruit smoothies, scrambled eggs sausage and hash brown (with baked beans to boot) and wonderful coffees. Daniel who served... More

This would be my second visit here. My last review when I came was in 2011. I'd say not much has changed to this place. It's also one of my favourite cafes in Melaka. Being a fussy coffee person who dislikes sourish, very strong or bitter taste, I choose Terengganu coffee with milk and ice. Definitely, one of my favourite... More

Came here with my family for a treat after breakfast to try the Melaka, Pulau Pinang and Perak ice blended coffees with the local brownie. Perfect place if you are looking for a cosy, hipster cafe with a touch of Malay heritage. The concept of the 13 Malaysian states coffee is genius! Staff are kind and friendly, internet is fast,...

We had hot chocolate and brown gentlemen, selangor coffee and tori canai and honey toast. Food and drinks were generally very good. The roti however was a frozen one as we can tell. The garnishing with all the dishes were fresh and tasty. The dial curry was nice.

Very very good Nyona Laksa. Creamy and delicious. The homemade crispy chili was very good with it. Bought a whole jar for 14rm. I enjoyed the laksa very much. Coffee from 13 states of Malaysia. Staff was friendly and very helpful. The Chocolate Mint drink was very good and not so sweet. Will recommend and thinking about going again.

The Cafe has all 13 states' coffees from all over Malaysia to taste. They taste really good, i like the taste of Melaka and Kelantan, rather a little stronger. Also the ice blended coffee is delicious.

The claypot laksa is to die for. But if you have to try one thing here, i would strongly recommend the coffee. The choices are endless and our waiter was very helpful in explaining the different types of coffee from all the 13 states. Atmosphere is very cozy and artsy

If you are a big fan of laksa then I highly recommend you visit Calanthe Art Cafe for their signature bowl of amazingly delicious, luscious and velvety laksa. It was so good that I even made the effort to tell the girl at the counter that it was really delicious when I usually keep to myself at restaurants. Their signature... More
