The food was excellent and the coffee was great. A very cozy chill out place with good air-conditioning. The staff are friendly. Food served a bit slow, but it's worth waiting for. We had the smoked duck paninis and the croissant sandwich as well as plain croissant (freshly baked, need to wait for some time). They were excellent. Reasonably priced.... More

The (Sarawak) museum shop and cafe is a little confusingly across the road from the china history museum in Jalan Main Bazaar and well away from the Sarawak museum but it is worth finding. It is a combined shop / cafe with a fun vibe and an interesting collection of Sarawak books, artifacts, cards etc. I enjoyed a well prepared... More

This place is a real gem! Took me ages to find it and it's not really in a museum. In fact it's across the road from the Chinese Museum and 6 doors down from the photocopy place on the corner of the street. Once found it was great. Really interesting decor and quiet. Great little menu and super friendly staff.... More

Very nice place to stop for a relaxing visit. Feels like you are in someone's house. The staff are very nice, and my Flat White was perfection.

Here I am, sipping up my latte with Norwegian Wood by Murakami in hands, entertained by indigenous music (personally I was stocked with Jerry Kamit's music). Coffee, as I stated beforehand, is decent. This can be a place where you can get away to have a calm, peaceful evening.

Well, my Americano was awful, badly served and probably espresso machine was not cleaned for a long time, but my wife was very satisfied with sandwich and atmosphere was great, little bit overpriced I think, but glad to see it.

We went for lunch, the coffee and sandwiches were fantastic. The place is interesting, very well decorated, with many beautiful items for sale. This cafe is a perfect place to spend a lazy, relaxing afternoon. Will be back when we return to Kuching.

I know this place under a different name from several years ago, but the coffee is still the same. Excellent. It also is an interesting décor with paintings, photos and books. Went several times there for the coffee.
