In a backstreet not far from Mahkota shopping center is this gem of a little cafe. Family- run it already closes at 4.30pm. But do come here for Strait Chinese breakfast or lunch and you will not be disappointed. Great food, super clean and tidy and very friendly. Go for their My Laksa, their tender Babi Asam (Sour Pork) and the cendol with a twist, and you will leave with a smile on your face. Highly recommended.

Had a late lunch at Unicorn Cafe recently and I must say that the food was great! The food feels like home and this family run business is so warm and welcoming. Our favorites were the popiah and kueh pie ti. Do leave some space for their durian chendol - the durian is a slab of actual durian from a local organic plantation and chendol has the right amount of Gula Melaka (not overly sweet).

Best of all, prices are very reasonable. Serving is on the small side, but that means u can order a greater variety of food.

Came over for tea time as I was recommended by my spouse. Understand that this quaint coffe place also serve peranakan dishes like babi pongteh and likes like otak otak and others. Do try their pai tee or popiah dishes which tasted nice.

Their food was rather bland, could use a little more salt for flavours. The best dish was their cendol melaka.

Perfect with the burnt sugar taste.
