“Great burger”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2014

Had the burger and the orange beer for lunch. Very good. The orange beer is delicious. Burger was really good too, although if you're an adult male you are going to be hungry.

Inside the staff and atmosphere is really relaxed. Loved it.

If you're in the mood for a good burger and a nice place to have lunch, definitely visit.

“Hands Down!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2014

Quaint Cafe, impressive wall decors, arty and laid back atmosphere.
Time freezes there, it will lure you back in time to its old heritage aura while enjoying every bite of their signature baboon beef burger.

If you want to take a break from the busy jonker walk, this is the place to be. Have a quiet moment while you work on your laptop or simply reading a good book.

Remains to be my favourite chill out place in Melaka! Will keep coming back!
