Most of the people will know what happened to this chains. Food are getting poor because the hands that prepare them mostly foreign workers. Food chain are by suppliers, and quality definitely drop when they can't cope up. I don't recommend anyone to go anymore. I myself had stopped since 2011, I was once a daily supporter.

Had a good time there. White café was intersting. Food was tasty but nothing special. Other Drinks were outstanding. Staff is very friendly but a little slow.

Taxi driver recommended this place to us as good reliable food. The drinks very welcome and the food - steamed ginger rice was quite good & enjoyable with a balance of flavour, but it took a long time to arrive.

Just make sure it is a weekend or a public holiday. Working days are hopeless as the area is very busy with a lot of traffic and people hurrying about as this is commercial hub of Ipoh and the law courts are nearby.

Not a good place for coffee and food . Coffee not good. Food did not taste nice. Probably franchise eateries are like that. Go other places nearby.
