Different coffee, traditional baked coffee make the taste unique. This the origin of Ipoh White coffee. Food is just average, coffee is superb. Price is ok.

I love the Asam Laksa there. But even if its at Old Town white coffee it tastes different at certain outlets. I also like the NAsi leamk sotong there. I like it spicy thou.

Iconic coffee house in Ipoh. Serves famous white coffee plus others. The curry mee and bread with kaya are regular treats. Plenty of tables, so you should find space even on busy days.

The service and food are good. The place is convenient except during peak hours, customers may find difficulties to find a parking lot.

To those in the know Ipoh style "White coffee" is a different way of producing coffee and traditionally served with various tidbits and snacks in the old ipoh town coffee shops . There are still some old ones about but this chain has selected the basic items and generated a stylish menu that is consistent throughout their chains.
The coffee is distinctive ion flavour and a little on the sweet style .. do not expect a starbucks or French taste as the roasting method is so much different. ( I prefer white town)
Wifi is free but in this outlet you have to check which one to use as the wrong one does not connect .
Note - many countries in Asia wifi is used by many people at coffee shops and these can get full with people nursing one coffee for 4-5 hours and even teaching students as I have noted at McDonalds ......
Recommend the toast yes even just their toast with spread is special !!!
Price is fair .. when you go to the original old town area of Ipoh you often find it cramped with people especially during Chinese new year , queues for tables and sitting at stools and looking a little dirty you decide really you must decide to go out of the old town and try Greentown area with this White Coffee shop it is much more relaxed even outside with the fans blowing . Service can be slow and make sure you select from the menu and use a order sheet then the foreigners will get what they want that way .. Used this outlet twice and recommended ... most polite guys serving too even if busy !
well done!
