“Excellent coffee - and lovely place”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

The coffee is excellent - I ended up bringing some home, the iced coffee is wonderful.
The place is interesting and we spent some time wandering around looking at the clippings and boards - brings the history of the whole area to life (this is where the Australians landed during the war)
Good to sit outside on the picnic tables - we enjoyed a contented hour here several times over coffee and drinks.

“love their kopitiam and teh tarik”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

hard to find this place, local people is not recognize this place as borneo 1945 museum kopitiam, if you all want to find this place, check the road, find the police station and follow the road, it's at the corner. try their favourite menu, kopitiam and teh tarik, great taste.
great interior with old Kinabalu's picture and you also can rent bicycle here, go green. it's also near the gaya street, backpacker's area.

“A Must Go To”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

A haven of peace and quiet in the bustling streets of KK.
A must go to place for lunch - the chicken pandan and rice was awesome, wash it down with, yes they are right, the best iced coffee in town.
The photos and Aussie war stories that surround the walls made me proud to be an Aussie.
