Definitely not your average cafe. It has a unique and funky vibe to say the least. The food was excellent, which is why we went twice in two days.

The place is calm, relaxing and serene. The owners are lovely and the art is breathtaking.

The Aloha Burger is by far the best burger I've ever had. Full stop.

My rating is for the ambiance only since I didn't taste their food. I was just wandering the street and decided to have coffee here as I really admired what the owner has done with the place. It is still ongoing. Not really sure how best to describe it... guess you just have to step inside and see for yourself. To me, it's a bit funky, unique and bold. I sat at the courtyard with a nice little garden and cool painting on the wall. Too bad you cant take photos inside but what you do with your camera/smartphone when no one is watching is entirely up to you...:)

I had the local Melaka coffee (got a cookie with that) and my friend had the shakerito. Both were so-so. The chinese girl/owner seemed friendly though.

Really enjoyed the lamb burger, so juicy. Also love the paintings inside. Very unique. Opens at 10:00 on Sunday. Recommended to all my friends. Will go again if visit Melaka

The artist is amazing. The place also. Be sure to ask to be seated way in the back where the plants are. The food is really good, the burgers and chicken burger.
