The kueh here are very traditional. However, choices maybe limited depending on the time you come and be prepared for the queue. Ondeh ondeh is very nice and made freshly but also is the long queue. Price is reasonable

Disturbing that this place is well known when the service is hopeless. Not worth searching for. The cafe does not have many types of kueh for selection. The ondeh ondeh we had does not have a nice Gula Melaka filling. Waste of a trip.
