Description: this is a small cafe in which the proprietor is passionate about coffee. Its quite a find and the coffee is marvellous. We'll be more focus in Scents and Tastes of coffee. Good coffee should be delicious, pleasant and aromatic. We are now crafting these scents and tastes into cups through roasting and brewing, and will present you with our very ideal cup of coffee from Sensory Coffee Roaster

Reviewed April 8, 2014

The first thing you notice about this coffee shop is the quirky Chinese decor and the feeling that you have arrived in someone's front room. But what an inviting front room it is - with the friendly owner and smiling staff. It is also quickly apparent that they are passionate about their coffee with a wide range of blends and styles on offer - plenty to keep the coffee connoisseur happy. The generous serve of banana cake was a winner, as was my daughter's iced chocolate - and the Nyonya dessert was also well worth a try.

“Nice Coffee but...”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

The ambience was not bad. Coffee was good but the sandwich we had was a little disappointing. The service was quite fast but the people at the service counter was a little glum looking. Overall an okay experience.

“Good coffee experience”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

I am a coffee fanatic, so I always look for places that serve great coffee. And this was definitely nothing short of a good coffee experience. To me, having coffee is not just about the taste of the coffee but the experience behind it. The barristas at Coffee Lane showed me how they brew the coffee beans of my selection and the aroma was fantastic. To top it off, we had a selection of snacks to go along with our coffee. They serve some main meals like chicken chop or if you want something lighter, they have sandwiches or nyonya kuih. It's a small cozy place with antique decorations and superb coffee. The barristas will also recommend you how to drink your coffee to be able to enjoy its optimum taste and flavour. Definitely a recommended place for coffee lovers!
