After deciding what to have between all the delicious sounding choices, I went with the affagato. It was amazing. The ice cream itself was not gourmet or anything, but it didn't matter, because the espresso was probably the best I've ever had! The place is down a small alley and the decor is cute and compliments the experience wonderfully.

We chance upon this place while walking along the small alley, next to our hotel, and was pleasantly surprised by its chillax atmosphere and bohemian hippie style feeling. Totally love the experience, so did my kids. Coffee was good, and the creme bru le is a must try. I definitely will coming back for more.

Strolled past this cafe and was attracted to its retro decor. I had one cup of latte only. Though the coffee is not as robust as I'd like to have it, the milk in it tasted interesting. The staff and owner were friendly and helpful in answering my queries about getting around. This is a lovely place to stop for... More

One of the reasons that make me fall for Melaka. Serve nice coffee and homemade cheesecake by friendly boss. Love the vantage style design.

The boss is a very nice and friendly person. The cafe is vintage and plays soothing music. I will definitely come again when I revisit Melaka!

Well worth a visit - off the beaten track. Excellent coffee and fresh juice - free wifi. Clean toilet too! Friendly staff and cooling fan.
