Breakfast is a must!! Hash browns and baked beans with yummy scrambled egg 😍 we were craving it after weeks of Asian cuisine, this place has yummy coffee too! Set in a quirky little side street!

The laksa was still excellent! My brother had a salted egg chicken and the taste of the salted egg was super strong! Must buy the crispy chili! We had 2 calanthe laksas and a salted egg chicken (includes rice and veggie). For drinks we had a coffee, iced lemon tea and a water. Total came up to around 60RM. Third... More

This was our last breakfast in Melaka before we had the drive to KL. It's a very cool little cafe with lots to look at. The food was good, and my husband says they serve very good coffee! Definitely worth a bite to eat and drink.

This place has a bit of a Caribbean vibe to it in the way it looks inside and the old school salsa and merengue music they are playing in the background. Nicely done staple Laksa soup. Coffee with condensed milk did not disappoint.

A real gem mixing great food with interesting art. Although not air conditioned, it was a good place for lunch on a hot day. Interesting range of food and they were happy to adapt dishes so that I could have a vegetarian option

Went for a quick coffee & ended up chatting with Joseph, the owner. He helped us work out how to choose our coffee, by the flavour we would prefer individually & they were perfect. Joseph also advised us of where & what to eat at the Portuguese seafood square & his suggestions​ were spot on. Thank you Joseph regards Janelle... More

A great spot for photographers and tourists. You can have a cup of coffee traditional to each Malaysian state, and their laksa is pretty good too.

The green plant wall outside attracted me. Small from the outside, it's houses a surprising display of items from an era most of us did not enjoy. Their Calanthe Laksa was huge bowl and very delicious with their chilli. The Chicken Ponteh is also very tender, yummy with a subtle tangy flavour. They are famous for coffees, so do try!... More
