Be sure and stop in here to try (and buy!) coffee! They offer 13 varieties as per the way coffee is prepared all across the country of Malaysia. Although much of the coffee does not originate in Malaysia (much from nearby Indonesia) it is fascinating to see the differences between the different regions in how the drink is prepared. Be sure to go inside and look through the whole place before choosing a seat - we especially enjoyed the TV fishtank! We didn't try the food, but it was a real gem of a find!

What a gem! We were delighted to stumble across this cafe where we had the calanthe laksa (5/5) and the dish of the day which was the claypot chicken rice (4/5). We also had some cooling milkshakes and sat outside on the patio. The toilets were clean, staff were friendly and it was my favourite cafe we visited in Melaka. Reasonably priced. Note it serves breakfast and is closed on Thursdays.

We visited during Chinese New Year when the noodle cafe's had great long queue's & were very pleased we did.
As there was a shortage of tables we were asked if we would mind sharing so we enjoyed some very pleasant company & good imformation during our very good meal.
The menu is interesting & varied & they do take notice of your request for little or a lot of chilli. Drinks also were excellent.
Definitly worth trying.

I like the laksa, there is no fishy smell on the soup. It is very rich though but personally, I love it. The price is very reasonable and the place is nice to relax. They also offer many kinds of coffee from all over malaysia (13 states). My friend tried the one from Johor, she liked it.
Cons: the server said they were out of bowl when we asked for extra bowl. He went back and gigling with his friend. so funny when there were only two tables eating and the server said no more bowl.
