Read many reviews saying that this place had a variety of cocktails and liquors. Decided to try this place during my last visit to Melaka and I was surprised to see the list of alcohols that they have! Most which I haven't heard of. Other than their variety of alcohols, the prices were cheap too! You could ask for a... More

food just okay. Their curry dishes seem to all use the same base. The upside of this place is that it's big and you can get a table any time despite it being in the middle of busy Jonker St. Wouldn't go back for food, just drinks or coffee.

I have ordered satay, spaghetti and watermelon juice. The only dish that I can eat was spaghetti. The cumin in satay sauce is too strong. The watermelon juice taste just like water. The waiters and waitresses are slow response maybe there were a lot of people at the time that I been there.

I could only stay here for a while as the music too loud. Staff was slow and would deliver the items to the wrong tables. However, this cafe is on a nice corner and good for watching the tourists walk buy - ifyou can stand the noise.

Not a bad place to spend some time. It does frequently get hit by waves of visitors. In between waves it's even worth taking a detour for, in order to drop by. BTW Please add espresso machiato to the menu ;-)

Ok, I've been holed up around the corner from Jonker Street for almost two weeks. I'm not a big eater here but I've been here six or seven times. Certainly we all understand the value of being at a well kept, up to date open air venue on the best corner in town, don't we? Good, let's move on... The... More

This is a great cafe on a corner location on Jonker street where you could sit the whole day and watch people pass by. The coffee is great and the food menu is limited but the focus is on fresh ingredients. We had the nasi goreng which was nice. Recommended for it's location, atmosphere, location, coffee and fresh food. I... More

Situated in the middle of jonker walk you could chillout at this nice restaurant yet you have a chance to enjoy the happening of jonker walk. Ambience was good but overall food quality is below average.

Good food and service , but at times the music is too loud . Problem with parking is there especially on weekends. Food is well prepared and an average amount of variety is there , somewhat on the expensive side . Good change so can visit off and on ...
