“Terrible service! Horrible drinks! A definitely no-go”
Review of Borneo 1945 Museum Kopitiam - CLOSED

I ordered an iced americano, assuming it's sugarfree as like in all americano(definition in menu and common sense: coffee mix with hot water), but they added sugar in it. I then requested for a new non-sugar added americano. However, the lady boss told me if i were to order a new one, she'll charge me for it. Helo?! What kind of service is this?! Plus the teh tarik my partner ordered has no taste whatsoever. Just tasted diluted! Terrible!! Avoid at all cost!!

Neat little piece of history honoring the men and women who served the forces of good; most who made the ultimate sacrifice. Your sacrifice will be missing out on a great meal with great atmosphere and the nice folks who work there.. We enjoyed breakfast which included western style eggs (American Breakfast) for the kids, toast with coconut jam, local style chicken roasted in palm leaves (Pandan Chicken Rice), Teh Tarik and the White Coffee. Topped all off with an ANZAC Biscuit. Definitely worth a visit when you are in Kota Kinabalu.

Great place to relax with a 'Kopi Botol' which is chilled coffee in a green beer bottle. Plenty of seating inside as well as outside on picnic benches. The location of the shop is in a place known as Australia Place which is within walking distance of Gaya Street, restaurants and shopping. In the shop there are loads of clippings and photos depicting the history of the area (the Australian contingent set up camp in the area at the end of WWII). Did not try the food but there is an impressive menu with local and international delights to tickle a myriad of palates. Highly recommended.

Had a few meetings in this place,there is a good choice of food with reasonably prices,some beer and drinks but my favourite drink is a bottled coffee bottled like a beer,this is the only coffee i can drink without milk because its really sweet and tasty.
