Lovely decoration, very friendly and helpful staff. Coconut brownie and iced Malacca coffee were a good duo, both tasty. Great for a coffee break while exploring Malacca.

A cafe with a difference!! A cool retreat from the heat of the street! We sat amongst the ferns with water misting over us! The meal was very enjoyable. Homemade ginger beer with lemon was a winner, as was my iced cafe latte!! Thankyou
