True to its review, this cafe serves the best coffee on the island. Love the ambience and it's tiger gallery is fantastic. Good coconut rice ( only available during weekend) and Zanah is in good condition. Keep it up.

It was surely an amazing experience sipping coffee with a tiger walking by you numerous times from as close as 1 feet away. Go early for the best table and enjoy your coffee with a glimpse of nature. Highly recommended. 👍
