this is a must stop whenever i visit malacca. the golden rice chicken and coffee jelly are what i enjoyed most. just the right balance of spice, lemongrass and chilli used in the chicken rendang and the crunchiness of the nuts with ikan bilis. had this meal on 2 consecutive days. the consistency in the dish is what i appreciate most unlike some restaurants whereby the standard drops with popularity. certainly not at calanthe. enjoy!

From the outside, this place looks very quirky and interesting, but I never imagined it to have good food.They serve a number of local dishes and everything we ordered was excellent.

They also have good coffee

We run into this restaurant and I ordered Calanthe Laksa and must say that by far it is the best laksa we had in Melaka. So if you want to try the best laksa, this is definitely the place to go for!

Calanthe Art Cafe is a very simple and quiet restaurant, however the food is fantastic. Not only is the food delicious but the prices are also very reasonable, making the restaurant even more likeable. We went for dinner and I can particularly recommend the samosas and spring rolls. Unfortunately the service was not fantastic as they forgot to give us the bill, therefore we ended up waiting for a long time. The toilets were also questionable - I'm not sure how hygiene laws allowed them to be connected to the kitchen! Despite this, the overall experience was good and I would recommend it.

Pretty good breakfast selection. Their coffee is not bad too! I will never forget their buttery, soft croissants. Ambiance of the place reminds me so much of Bag of Beans in Tagaytay, Philippines. Was supposed to go back for Lunch but hubby wants to try eating somewhere else, will definitely try their laksa on my next Malacca trip.

P.s.
Downside of our trip is, the food took 30minutes to arrive. We overheard the staff saying something about kitchen problems and lack of ingredients. They could've advised the diners that time regarding the situation but they chose to keep mum about it despite of some people complaining already.
