Found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a try. It requires a little walk to get into this restaurant. They offer all kinds of Western style breakfast and healthy options, with a little fusion. Price is on above average and is worth a try. Portion is huge.

Best kept secret in Tawau - mostly because of its hidden location. Nestled behind the row of seafood restaurants in Sabindo town, this place will serve you the best Western breakfast in town. There is a public toilet near the row of seafood restaurants. Right next to it is a stone path that leads to the back. Follow the path... More

The food quality is merely meet the standards but it is the hygiene of the food that is concerned me, flies everywhere especially in the open kitchen, staff picked up the toast from the ground after it fall on it, it was really disgusting. Never ever visit again.

This restaurant was just amazing! The staff is extremely friendly, the food and the freshly poured coffee is delicious and the ambience is very authentic. They offer a variety of western breakfast like sandwiches, omelette, burgers etc. We tried the 101 signature sandwich and eggs benedict - just yummie! It is a little bit hard to find: you have to...

The eggs benedict and cappuccino weren't available any more when I was there but the standard coffee was very good and there were other good choices for breakfast. The restaurant is tucked away among the food stalls between Jalan Chen Fook and Jalan Persisiran (the beach road).

This was probably the best (western) breakfast we had in Malaysia. Great taste, big portions and very friendly staff. Just take a look at the pictures. But it is not easy to find if you are a tourist. The best way is to go to the City Garden Hotel and ask for directions there, it is close by but still... More

A pleasant surprise of a restaurant down a random alley in a town that doesn't seem to offer an awful lot for the passing tourist. Exceptional eggs Benedict with a unique delicious twist. Currently sipping on one of the best Moccachinos I've ever had. Great friendly service and all at a reasonable price. Highly recommend stopping by.

Thank TyWatts
