“Oasis”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Away from the hustle of Jonker Street this cafe from the outside hides a serene atmosphere of openness and greenery. We only had a superb coffee and smoothies but the food looked fresh and clean. Staff are friendly and helpful. It is worth a visit to see the restoration of this building. Muffins smelt delicious.

“Arty Decor with Tasty Burgers”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Baboon House was to the right of my boutique hotel, so sis and I decided to have a late lunch there. Oriental Chicken & Lamb Burgers were our choices with vietnamese coffee. Serving size was moderate which was no problem for us, as you do want to save some space for the other dishes malacca has to offer :) Now,the patties were well seasoned with crispy potato wedges. The coffee was strong and sweet, exactly how its suppose to be. Truly satisfied!
