“A Budget Hangout Place”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

While you wait for the coach servicing the route between the Sutera Harbor Resort and KK town, do indulge yourself in the local alternative of premium coffee aside from that of the much more famous Starbucks. The outdoor dining is perfect especially at night as you would get the ultimate experience in seeing the virtual night life of Sabah; when all the night lights sparkle as you gaze around one of the busy streets in town.

As this is one of those franchise coffee outlets, much of the blend and taste remains quite predictable and expected. Thus, we are only left with the purported quality of coffee and non caffeinated beverages they have to offer. Nevertheless, expect nothing but the best. Service is average, ambiance is wonderful and location strategic. Food is commonplace.

This is on the ground floor of a shopping centre near the Gaya Centre Hotel. Good coffee and cakes and quick pleasant service also not expensive. Free wifi.

“Service and food lets down the decent coffee”
Reviewed 13 December 2012

The coffee is good but is overpriced,especially for Sabah. The atmosphere is OK, better since the recent facelift but the whole experience is let down by poor service and worse food. Staff simply aren't trained to a decent standard. The meals are appalling, cooked in a microwave, and relatively expensive. If you want something 'safe' and western you're better off heading across the road to Little Italy. If you want a simple coffee and snack then go to anyone of the kedai kopi's on Gaya st.

My only tip if you have to have an coffee fix is to go early and get a cheap breakfast with free coffee/tea refills.
