An awesome selection of nonya cakes. Pay a visit and u will never regret. Though the entry to the location are narrow and single directional. We met volunteers who helps to guide the traffic. Do drive with care, when you visit.

Freshly made Onde Onde (small green rice cakes covered with grated coconut filled with Gula Melaka in it), it was still hot and tasty! Other than that, nothing tasty (for my taste)... One good thing is that, this place has variety.

Cendol was good as expected. Most Nyonya kueh were of good quality and tasty. Didn’t get to eat their “chang”(rice dumplings), as they’re sold out. The biggest let down for me was their “kueh talam” which was far removed from the traditional white santan(coconut based...More

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.
