First time to visit this place with family although I am a Malaccan. Like the artistic interior design and like the food also. Especially the home made muffins. It's delicious! Hope I can learn from them how to make a good muffin. Also hope that still can meet them when I come back again.

“Perfect place for lunch or coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

This place is beautiful, the service is good and the food excellent. It's one of few places in Melaka where you can get a passable (by Western criteria) latte and the burgers are fantastic. Portions are a little small (though they seem quite standard, having been here a while) but the quality's so good that I was left completely satisfied. I also took to coming in here to work - the music's good but unobtrusive and the clientele are laid back. I cannot fault this place.

“Lovely, lovely, lovely!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

What an amazing place! The whole place is so fun and relaxed, it's just wonderful! This is one of those few places where food that you ordered actually look similar to the pictures on the menu. The burgers are so fresh and flavorful! We had an Aloha burger and an oriental chicken burger, both were fantastic.
All in all a great place to visit! Will definitely return!

This restaurant is very special. The ambience is amazing and the décor is unique. The burgers are delicious as also are the potato wedges. A perfect place to eat, drink and chill out.

This restaurant fully deserves it's high rating. Fabulous looking building with great atmosphere. Beautiful garden and courtyard. We had terrific breakfast but were really tempted by the burgers. Good helpful staff.
