This is a simple but really really nice local café in Bandar, I really like it a lot. The place is cozy, food is ok (same with the international brand of café)) and the staff are nice too. This is just in front of the bus terminal, walking distance to the boat station going to Kampong ayer. If you are doing your walking sightseeing in Bandar, then it’s nice to try this local café .

THE GOOD:

* Some interesting choices for serving the beverages. Their affogato uses mango ice cream instead of the traditional vanilla. Iced Onde Onde latte combines an espresso shot with elements of Malaysian cooler cendol (coconut milk, pandan essence, gula melaka syrup).

* Friendly, attentive, knowledgeable staff.

* Laid-back, open-plan interiors; a tasteful, well-designed space for dining, meeting, grabbing a coffee, or just chilling out. Swing-style chairs are a nice touch. Casual board games are always a welcome distraction.

* Memorable logo/visual branding/identity with the iconic phallus-nosed proboscis monkey.

THE BAD:

* The flavor of the beverage was merely above par. The coffee appeared to be a mixed blend sourced from a distributor in Singapore. I don't expect every cup to be a premium single-origin roast hand-crafted by a certified Q-grader but with the mark-up on their menu items, I hoped to get more for my dollars.

THE UGLY:

* The prices! I realize the cafe is located on prime real estate near the waterfront, but the quality of the drinks did not justify the cost. The food was so expensive, we decided not to sample any.

It is a happy place not just for kids but also adults who grew up in the Jolibee generation. This is more preferred by locals and residents than the other fast food because of the Asian feel to the food, and the mascots...

Stopped in here for a bit of lunch and while it won't rock your world or anything, it's a perfectly nice little place.
It has a very small menu of sandwiches, Belgian waffles, hot dogs and lots of desserts. So not bad for lunch but probably won't fill you up for dinner. Delicious French fries by the way!
Blissfully air conditioned and free WiFi. Very friendly service and reasonable prices. Right opposite the waterfront a short walk from all the major attractions.

Found the normal latte a bit too milky for me hence asked for double shot the next 2 visits. Great coffee flavour and decent milk texture compared to other local cafes I had visited. Great value as well for the portion offered.

Been living in Melbourne, Australia past four years so I do know my coffee.
