The food is pretty good. Try their Nonya Laksa. The gravy is exquisite, the dish is mostly gratifying. I wish they had put in a few morsels of meat/prawn/fish to complete the meal. We also had the nasi lemak, which is pretty good, complete with chicken.

Overall a nice hangout place, better than average coffee, not sure about their cheese cakes though.

Toilet can be cleaner.

This is a really arty place with good food and more importantly great service. Standout dish is the claypot emee laksa and drinks were great too. Nice place to hang out.

At first glance the place will instantly catch your attention, decorated with wide array of decorations, this cafe stands out along the street of Melaka. But to me it does looks kinda messy and too complex, but good ambient nonetheless.

The menu has lots and lots of choices that they boast to have all the coffees from the whole Malaysia. Ordered laksa for lunch, not the typical ones we get in KL which is sour in general, instead this one is more "curry-ish", thick, rich in flavor, delicious. I am drooling just by typing this sentence, no joke.

The staff were friendly and swift with their services. Will certainly recommend to you guys and I am sure I will visit again.

Such a gem in the back streets of Melaka, the nyonya tofu, banana smoothies, honey iced coffee and laksa are to die for. Must visit in Melaka!

We visited this cafe again since 2012 Sep. Their laksa still tastes very good, in particular with their chili source! I love their ambience and they are very friendly to my young kids, probably because we visited after the busy lunch hours. We even got to buy their chili source after talking to their friendly staff. A nice place to chill out from the heat outside. The staff even offered us mosquito repellent after knowing we got mosquito bites! I would definitely go back & recommend this lovely cafe to everyone!
