    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.

    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!

    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.

    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 👍🏻

    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!

    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. ☕️

    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.

    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.

    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.
