If you are in Malaysia, no harm to try their local coffee espeically Old Town Coffee is popular in Malaysia. You can buy a pack of 3in1 coffee back to your town as souvenir too. White coffee pack is bit sweet taste

The service was poor to say the least, the food was ok but some had been sitting in the bay Maree for some time and was not what you would wish for. Coffee was ok but in general I would look at other areas for your coffee. Much better available.
