    Laksa & asam pedas are must have! Can't order these two before 12pm (lunch time). Bfast menu valid before 12pm and quite limited. For strong coffee, opt for Kelantan. For milder one, Perak is good.

    Everything is good for me. But one thing, if you are here for the first time, do not ask if you can sit inside. JUST GO IN. there's so many cool seats inside. They also have upstairs sitting.

    Love this cafe. Very nice interiors & entrance. We tried Selangor & Perak coffee, not too bad. But we didn't try the food coz we're running out of time. Would love to come again.

    Must try their Calanthe Laksa. Main food is served only from noon tough. Amazing coffee, I wish I can have their coffee everyday. For those of you who like strong coffee, go for Klatan or Pahang.

    Buttercream fish is my fave. Also, gotta try the fried cuttlefish - we cleaned up these before the main dish. Lovely ambience, no pretentious interiors.. My kinda cafe!

    Chocolate passion is love, chocolate milk shake with slight strawberry taste, rating (9/10). Dark chocolate cheese is amazing (10/10). Laksa needs a little bit more salt, but the taste is okay (7/10)

    Been here several times. Try the states blended coffee & its signature dish i.e. laksa. Rice w/ butter chicken, chicken chop & ayam pong teh is worth to try too. Sago gula melaka & brownies 👍🏻

    I ordered the ice blended Selangor coffee and was not disappointed. It had the 'kopi kampung' flavor infused with blended ice, ice cream and coffee-flavored jelly. The snack I ordered was forgetable.

    I'm not a coffee addict but...I really like the coffee I had from that bottle. Said to be mixed of Johor & Pinang. Will come here again, instead of Starbucks if in Malacca. ☕️

    Get the front table and to witness the street piano performance by Athelea the blind Down Syndrome girl with a heart of gold :). Enjoy with a glass of Brown Gentlemen or Green Tea Coffee. Bliss !

    Calanthe Laksa : Aromatic and Tasty. Try the gravy before adding the shrimp paste. Add according to your taste. Tasty even without the paste. RM 13.++ For a bowl. Not small bowl mind u. 7/10

    The caramel slice is so much better than Nadeje crepe cake. The barista knows how to brew some REAL coffee! The quaint decoration if you really like Nyonya vintage. Don't miss this place!

    Check on your table for wifi password (1st line) & their social media name & hashtags. Or don't be shy, just ask them for it. Hehe.

    Came here last night. Ordered Calanthe Laksa and Claypot Yee Mee Laksa. Delicious! Drinks forgettable.Reasonably priced. Service ok considering it was a slow night. Would go there again.

    So the place is known for coffee but really hot day so the Very KOO smoothie was a lifesaver. Refreshing concoction of lemon, orange, banana, yoghurt & parsley. Claypot Assam pedas fish also glorious.

    Awesome ambience. Walk inside & look around. It's such a cool cafe! Cosy but there's lots of seats too. Don't just sit outside, checkout the inside.

    The green tea coffee and caramel slice is good. The banana smoothie taste like water plus banana and brownie, not my type of brownie

    Calanthe Laksa is really good. A friend once said, "It's so good it can make you cry". Perak Coffee is good too. Nice place to stop by esp on hot Jonker Days.

    The wifi is good. But the password is hard to remember. So ask the staff. Mango lassi and es cendol just at precise taste. Yum!

    Had the caramel slice after few years of not going there. Just slightly disappointed that they’ve changed the taste of it. Used to taste super good tho. But still the food there is pretty nice 👍🏼

    To me,the coffees,cappuccino and green tea coffee are not really special here. Environment is cosy. They imposed service charge of 10% only during holiday(8-11 August)??!

    The 13 states coffee means you'll never get bored of the coffee here. It's worth coming back again and again to try different ones.
