16 cafes in Melaka – WIFI, cakes, brunch, coffee, waffles & more

No, it is not my intention to add another click-bait article with a listing of cafes compiled using images from the public (most of the time without prior permission) to the online space.

For this post, I personally visited ALL the cafes and consumed the food & drinks you see here. I paid for my meals and all images are mine.
I wasn’t able to order everything from the menu, and thus I’ve kept my opinions of the food & beverages based on those I’ve had.

Information here are kept concise for easy reference; answering important considerations to cafe-hoppers such as the availability of WIFI, opening hours, food/only cakes are served, smokers-friendly (outdoor seating available or otherwise), halal and so on.

I welcome feedback to improve this listing as well as any recommendations of cafes to add to this list so do leave a comment or email me ([email protected])! 🙂
** I would also require accommodation in Melaka, so feel free to recommend a place for me to stay! 

NOTE: Listing in no particular order.

Rebecca’s summary:
EAT! (Food Space) – groundfloor & Madbros (Barber Shop) – upstairs are under the same management and together it is known as Altitude Emporium.
I like this place for its wallet-friendly prices and good food. The staff are obliging and truly hospitable. We were early and I made a few changes to my orders but they got everything executed as per my request.
Our lamb was tender, sauces were served separately and my juice prepared with no added sugar.
The nasi kukus wasn’t ready at the time of order so the staff said he would let me know once it is ready and he did.

We saw a large open grill at the back of the kitchen where the meats are freshly cooked upon order.
Our mix grill consist of a whole chicken thigh and 2 large pieces of lamb. Meats are well marinated and juicy.
Portions are big. Both sauces are tasty; one tomato-based with pineapples and celery which is sweet and another black pepper based, also sweet rather than peppery.
I believe the sauces are made in-house. Fries were passable and the coleslaw had too much mayo.
The Nasi Lemak was more like Nasi Kukus since it wasn’t infused with coconut milk. The sambal is black, dry and slightly spicy.
I love it as it is unlike the watery, classic versions commonly served with nasi lemak at other eateries. The chicken was juicy though a bit lacking in the taste department. Perhaps longer marination hours would fix that.

I requested for watermelon juice (RM4) without sugar and I was pleased that it wasn’t watered down.
Food is of better quality than your usual mamak and the ambience much cosier too.

Mixed Grill – RM22. Watermelon Juice (RM4)

2. The Huskitory Cafe

2. – The Huskitory Cafe

output

Key attraction: The dogs! 🙂
Prices: Affordable. RM5 – RM20.
Coffee beans: Nespresso.

Food: No food other than coffee, some non-coffee beverages and mille crepes.
Cakes: Limited. Displayed at the chiller.
Pork-free/Halal: Pork-free. No alcohol served.
OOTD/Instagram friendly: Very. With the huskies of course.
WIFI: YES, spotty like everywhere in Melaka
Tax: No.
Service: Warm and helpful.
Your orders are served to you.
Ambience: Comfortable. Relaxed.
Aircon: Yes.
Outdoor seating: No.
Powerpoints for charging: Limited.
Parking : Roadside. Easy.
Payment: Eat first, then call for bill to pay.

Rebecca’s summary:
This is uniquely (and probably) the only Husky cafe in Malaysia.
Huskitory is primarily a pet store and pet grooming salon.
There are 9 huskies on rotation for patrons to play with throughout the day. Reservations are a must for weekends/PH (heard it is fully booked for weeks now), but it is quiet on weekdays, which makes it the best time for visits as you do not have to jostle with the other patrons for your playtime with the dogs.

I was there on a Wednesday and only 3 tables were occupied, including ours.
There is no minimum order imposed. We ordered a drink (RM8.90) and added a peanut butter & jam mille crepe (RM9.90) as a snack.
I’m not a fan of Nadeje, but these were not any better.
Food on the menu is for dogs, of which I’m assuming that if you bring your furkids, that would be your kiddo’s meal.

Well, food and drinks are not the focus here. Just enjoy yourself with the dogs and try to visit during feeding hours which is 5-6pm or 7-8 pm daily.
This is the only time you can see all the huskies at once.
We were there from 12 pm to about 2pm so we missed the feeding hour. What we got was ONE husky to play with.

Meet Candy. She is 2 years old.

Pork-free/Halal: Serves pork.

Rebecca’s summary:
Opened in the first week of August, I look forward to an improved level of service as the cafe team gets its bearing. Our food took a while to reach our table.
The staff seems more interested to chat among than themselves than to see to your needs.
Taste-wise, the meat barely passed muster while the portions seemed tiny to me for the price. I guess you are paying for ambience more than anything here.

Cheese Grilled Pork Chop. RM14.80.

4. Alley No. 5 

What I wore/OOTD: Dress from Topshop. Silver wedges – Charles & Keith.

alley no 5 melaka

This retro little cafe is probably in one of the most hidden location in Melaka. It is right in town (Jonker area) but a real challenge to find.
Anyhow, look for The Bridge Loft, which is on Waze.

Prices: Standard cafe prices. Our rootbeer was RM6 nett.
Coffee beans: The Roast Things.
Food: Only cakes.
Cakes: Limited to cheesecakes and creme brulee, their in-house specials.
Pork-free/Halal: Pork- free.
OOTD/Instagram friendly: So-so.

Payment: Eat first, then call for bill to pay.

Rebecca’s summary:
Alley No.5 exudes more of an old coffeeshop vibe than a cafe.
It is wonderfully quiet with a zen aura. We love the place as being ideal for writing, reading and quiet conversation.

A no-frills outlet, beverages are limited to coffee and soft drinks. For nibbles, their house-baked cheesecakes and creme brulee are highly recommended and the options for these vary daily.
“It is depending on the availability of ingredients and time”, the owner had said.

5. Limau Limau Cafe

5. Limau Limau Cafe

limau limau cafe - cafe melaka guide

Signature: Breakfast sets, their ciabatta and pancakes.
Prices: Standard cafe prices. RM10 or so for a drink. RM15 for a meal. (Prices are approximation, dependent on your actual order).
Coffee beans: Lavazza.
Food: Sandwiches (ciabatta), pancakes, lasagne, salads, soups.
Cakes: No but I saw an apple crumble on the menu.
Pork-free/Halal: Pork- free.
OOTD/Instagram friendly: Not really.
WIFI: YES, spotty like everywhere in Melaka
Tax: No.
Service: Warm, helpful, cheerful. The Botswana guy deserves a special mention here.
Your orders are served to you.
Ambience: Comfortable. Relaxed.
Aircon: Yes.
Outdoor seating: Yes. There is space upstairs too.
Powerpoints for charging: NO.
Parking :Challenging. Roadside, around Jonker.
Payment: Eat first, then call for the bill to pay.

Rebecca’s summary:
Not a new kid on the block, Limau Limau began operations years before the current wave of hipster cafes in Melaka. Its location right in the heart of Jonker ensured a steady stream of customers despite its lack of marketing efforts.
Many visit for their pancakes, their ciabatta sandwiches and for the value added breakfast sets with coffee/juices. I personally like Limau Limau for its cosy ambience and fresh, good (some are healthy) food.

Most dishes are in-house specialties and portions are generous for the price.
We had the highly recommended Chicken Ciabatta with Mangoes (RM18.90), a serving heavily stuffed with thick cuts of chicken breast and big enough to be shared.
Taste-wise it was acceptable; not particularly mind-blowing but it had enough flavour from the mayo- pepper combo and added delicate sweetness from chunks of mangoes.
Don’t expect an actual ciabatta though. It looks like one but it is a thinner, crispier version. However it worked well in this case since they are generous with the ingredients.
More chicken and mangoes in every bite is better than bread right?

For drinks, I chose a healthy mix of yogurt, papaya and lychee (RM11.00) (lassi version rather than the milkshake as the milkshake version has ice cream which makes it sweeter), a tall glass of satisfyingly thick and heavy -with-the-promised-fruits beverage.

Interior: I regretted not heading upstairs to check it out.
The veranda is lavishly decorated but it didn’t feel cluttered. Instead, it conveyed a charming, artistic vibe.

6. Kaya-Kaya Cafe

6. Kaya – Kaya Cafe 

Rebecca saw - kaya kaya cafe melaka - review-003

Signature: Malacca Elvisa pancake version of Elvis Presley’s favourite peanut butter, banana and bacon sandwich.

Prices: Fair for both quality, portion and taste of food.
Coffee beans: Java Arabica.
FoodGrilled chicken chop, French toast, pasta, soups for mornings.
Coffee, tea, beers, soda, juices and their signature beverages ‘Welcome to Malacca” – soy milk with gulf melaka & herbal jelly (commonly known to us as Michael Jackson) as well as the ‘See U Again’ – panda leaves and lemongrass drink.
Cakes: Yes, but limited to carrot cake and brownies for now. No cake chiller display.
Pork-free/Halal: Pork- free.
OOTD/Instagram friendly: Very.
WIFI: YES, spotty like everywhere in Melaka
Tax: No.
Service: Warm, helpful and cheerful!
Your orders are served to you.
Ambience: Comfortable. Relaxed.
Aircon: No.
Outdoor seating: Yes.
Powerpoints for charging: Limited.
Parking : At Jonker St. area so parking is challenging.
Payment: Eat first, pay later.

Rebecca’s summary:
I love this place. The service is excellent, the food satisfactory, coffee is good and the ambience lovely.
My advice? Venture beyond the usual Malacca Elvis (which everyone orders) and try the Salted Egg Spaghetti (RM16) instead.

I was thrilled as this was one of the better breakfast grub I’ve had for a Malaccan cafe.
The spaghetti was redolent with the fragrance of curry leaves and the taste of salted egg, yet not overwhelmingly so. It was so good that we excused the slightly over al-dente pasta.
However we couldn’t forgive the dry, hard pieces of chicken breast that came with it. Otherwise it would have been a perfect dish.

kaya kaya cafe melaka - cafe guide-003

There is an afternoon tea set priced at RM38 for 2 pax that I would be interested to try next time. 

Also, pictured here is their popular Kaya Cheese Toast (RM7) (not our order) with their home-made kaya.
I wanted to buy a tub since I love kaya but was told they don’t sell it commercially as the freshly made egg custard has no added preservatives and is temperature sensitive thus it doesn’t keep well.

We shared a cappuccino (RM8) and stayed for an hour to enjoy the peaceful and old charm of this heritage building.

Signature: Pandan Gula Melaka Pancakes.

Food: Yes.
Cakes: Yes, a fair variety are displayed at the chiller.
Pork-free/Halal: Pork- free.

Aircon: Yes.
Outdoor seating: Yes – open air at the courtyard.
Powerpoints for charging: Limited.
Parking : Along Jonker so challenging.
Payment: Eat first, then call for the bill to pay before you leave.

Rebecca’s summary:
There are few cafes as spacious and as inviting as The Daily Fix.
Sunny and welcoming, we felt right at home here.

There are a few sections to the long space and each provides a different vibe and a whole lot of opportunities for photography.

The team is patient, ever-smiling and knowledgable about the menu. They assisted with our orders; helped me to make up my mind on the dessert – a durian cake with durian cream and was able to explain about the coffee beans used in their brew.
No one stopped us though we took a lot of photographs around the cafe. As courtesy, we were careful to not disturb other patrons in the cafe.

Food-wise the “durian” cake (RM12) turned out to be a butter cake with pungent durian cream and gula melaka drizzled over it.
The Lot (RM19.90) is a standard platter of breakfast items and wasn’t particularly superior to any other. Our cuppa – a full bodied cappuccino gave us the necessary jolt to the day.

Ambience: Comfortable. Relaxed.
Aircon: Yes.
Outdoor seating: No.
Powerpoints for charging: Limited.
Parking : A quiet street near Jonker that isn’t as busy so parking is easier on weekdays but might require some luck during the weekends.
Payment: Eat first, pay later.

Rebecca’s summary:
We stayed longer than expected, for it was hard to say goodbye.
The cafe is long and narrow, manned by hospitable staff and decorated charmingly with an eclectic combination of art pieces and old family heirlooms.

Overall, it exudes a cosy, welcoming vibe. The menu is diverse with local favourites (loh mai kai) co-mingling with western (sandwiches).
Staying loyal to local traditions, coffees offered are our beloved “kopitiam” cuppa with the choice of “O” (black) or with milk. It was served in the cherished old cup that we know, and could easily rival any version from a local kopitiam.

We recommend the house-brewed Orange Beer (RM8.50), a convincing replica of an actual beer.
It contains about 3-5% alcohol, less gassy than your ordinary beer with a mild tang from the orange plus a slight bitter aftertaste expected of any beer.
Unique and refreshing, it is the perfect thirst relief from the infamous Malaccan heat.

Food for us was the Pork Belly with Homemade Hot Sauce (RM18.90).
The house-baked ciabatta is large, lightly herbed and crusty with springy insides.
Its size and texture was the perfect foil for the thick, large pieces of pork belly which has an agreeable balance of fat to lean meat.
Though not as “hot” as its name suggested, it was tasty nonetheless due to its sweet and slightly spicy marinade.
Served with a side salad, this could easily feed 2.

Powerpoints for charging: No.
Parking : Roadside at Jonker area, a bit challenging in the afternoons.
Payment: Order, enjoy and pay before leaving.

Rebecca’s summary:

Eat @ 18 may be hard to spot from the front, but this two-storey shophouse doubles as a boutique hotel (upstairs – Opposite Place) and cosy cafe on the ground floor.

The front area isn’t much to shout about; narrow space with bar-style sitting at the front of the counter.
Once you move to the back, it’s like an Aladdin cave opened up.
The middle area has a communal table where you can bid goodbye to your privacy since it is meant for sharing. We were there early (about 10 am) so that wasn’t an issue for us as there were only 2 other diners at one end of the table. Naturally we took the far opposite corner.

I love the courtyard area, sunny ambience and the pebbled floor. Service is shaky though the staff tried their best. We dealt mostly with a Chinese lady that I found to be a wee bit snobbish but it could just be the way she carried herself.

Hot Chocolate (RM12.90 + 10%).

My breakfast was the Fresh Cream Rolled Pancakes with Fresh Berries Compote, available from 830- 1130 am.

Rebecca’s summary:
For some, a trip to Melaka isn’t complete without Nadeje mille crepes. Some regard Nadeje mille crepes almost as synonymous as Melaka is with chendol and nyonya food.

nadeje cafe - melaka cafe hopping guide-003

Halfway through my Melaka cafes list, it dawned on me that almost every cafe offers mille crepes in their dessert repertoire, though not necessarily Nadeje’s.
Despite having three branches in KL, KL-ites still make it a point to pack some back affirmed by their belief that those from the original outlet are still superior.
I’m not a fan, but you can’t ignore Nadeje when they operate 3 branches in Melaka and all branches are considered as cafes.
Thus Nadeje is in this list.

I like the Milk Tea flavour. The alcohol versions of Tiramisu and Rum & Raisin are popular but I personally find them too mild in alcohol.

11. Backlane Coffee

backlane coffee - melaka cafe review-001

Signature: House baked desserts. The owl latte.
Prices:  Standard cafe prices. RM10 or so for a drink. RM15 for a meal. (Prices are approximation, dependent on your actual order).
Food: Yes – pizza, sandwiches, breakfast items.
Cakes: Yes, a fair variety plus macarons are displayed in the chiller.
Pork-free/Halal: Pork- free.
OOTD/Instagram friendly: Very.
WIFI: YES, spotty like everywhere in Melaka
Tax: TBA.
Service: Weak. Asked the staff behind the cashier and another wait staff about coffees and cakes and they couldn’t response adequately.
Ambience: Comfortable. Relaxed.
Aircon: Yes.
Outdoor seating: No.
Powerpoints for charging: Limited.
Parking : Roadside. Jonker area but a bit away from the main busy streets so potentially easier to find a spot.
Payment: Pay upon ordering.

Rebecca’s summary:
I was surprised to read the negative comments on their FB page (under Reviews) and was glad that we didn’t encounter any such experience during our visit (save for the blur “barista”/counter staff).

We were there on a weekday afternoon and there were only 2 tables occupied.
The Wifi works, the coffee was ok and it is unquestionably a great place with nice decor and pretty interior space. There are books and games on the shelves for guests reading/playing pleasure.
The cake and affogato wasn’t particularly memorable though the cake was of better quality than most cafes within Malacca town.
The owl latte scored points for presentation but unfortunately not for execution. The hot milk couldn’t melt the icy espresso cubes fast enough so the drink was milkier at first and only had coffee flavour after a good 15 minutes of stirring.

Would I return?
Yes because I’m curious about the other cakes (any cafes that bakes their own desserts are worth a mention) and I do like the sunny space.
I just hope there are knowledgable staff for me to converse with on my next visit!

Chocolate Desire (RM12). Affogato (forgot the price!).

Rebecca’s summary:
The Root Pâtisserie Café stood out among the rest of the cafes for its desserts.
Its cake chiller went beyond the generic cheese and chocolate cakes and everything look pretty! Dessert fans would be hard-pressed to make a choice; should you try their macarons? Or the eclairs?
Perhaps the lava cake with ice cream? Or maybe a tall panna cotta?

roots patisserie melaka - cafe hopping guide-002

roots patisserie melaka - cafe hopping guide-003

I decided on the pretty pink Lychee Rose Raspberry Profitrerole (RM12), my favourite matcha cake and a serving of their signature churros.
After several cups of coffee based drinks at a few cafes, we jumped at the alternative of a Pandan Coconut Blended (RM11.90) which promises to be a refreshing blend of coconut juice with strong pandan flavour. We were also assured that the pandan was genuine extract with no flavourings added.

The beverage delivered on its promise, while its signature Churros was good too; non-greasy yet spongy inside.
Instead of boring old chocolate, a duo of lemon custard and chocolate caramel took its place.
I loved them both, but gravitated more to the mildly zesty lemon custard for its sweet sour flavour.

Service was excellent as the young staff was helpful and obliging. The decor isn’t as photogenic as say, Kaya Kaya or The Daily Fix, for it doesn’t carry the vintage theme (except for a few decorative items) but it offers more in terms of food and beverages.
All in all, Roots is a worthwhile visit.
The only downside was unexpectedly the prettiest one; the rose profiterole which suffered the fate of being dry and hard.

What I wore: OOTD – Denim tube dress (no brand), black velvet wedges from Vincci.

plat kitchen melaka cafe hop

Signature: Sambal Hebi Pasta.
Prices: Standard Melaka cafe prices.
Coffee beans: Home blend beans from Sumatra, Ethiopia and Brazil.
Food: A pretty complete menu where the kitchen offers more than the standard cafe grub. Most of their menu items are given a twist in one way or another, sort of a union of Asian and western influences.
Cakes: Yes, a fair variety is displayed at the chiller. On the menu there’s RED WINE brownies!
Pork-free/Halal: No pork but got alcohol (an interesting one to note is the Guinness Ice Cream beverage).
OOTD/Instagram friendly: So-so.
WIFI: YES, spotty like everywhere in Melaka
Tax: No.
Service: Warm and helpful. I was served by a young cheerful girl who even helped me to take photos!
Your orders are served to you.
Ambience: Comfortable. Relaxed.
Aircon: Yes.
Outdoor seating: Yes.
Powerpoints for charging: 15 points in the cafe and more outside.
Parking : Roadside. Easy.
Payment: Eat first, then call for bill to pay.

Rebecca’s summary:
I like Plat Kitchen a lot.
50% of my positive experience was attributed to the cheerful girl who served me, another 20 % for the quiet outdoor seating space with power points and 30% to the food and drinks.

Well-deserved brownie points goes to the mastermind of the menu for its diverse and creative fusion of Asian and western style preparations.
The Ah Ma’s Sambal Hebi Pasta was delicious; all umami from dried shrimps with a dusting of fragrant, crispy garlic bits. Protein was from a skewer of aromatic, tender pandan chicken.
A small wedge of lime was provided but I ignored it at first, tasting the pasta as it was. It wasn’t al-dente, but that’s the acceptable texture for the locals and it is understandable that the kitchen have to please the masses.
After the initial bite, I squeezed some lime juice over my pasta and found the next bite considerably enhanced; for the lime juice provided a sharp tang to the spicy flavour of the dish.

The Affogato Gong Thng (gong thng is the local peanut candy ) is certainly a first for me. It is a novel idea; adding crushed local peanut candy to the ice cream and espresso.
You will think that the gong thng adds texture and a bit of sweetness, but not overly so. I didn’t like the ice cream used but after visiting almost 20 cafes, I’ve accepted that most cafes in Melaka uses Walls’ ice cream. If you are fussy like me, perhaps you should avoid ordering affogatos or in Plat’s case, ask for a Haagen Daaz substitution (charges apply).

Rebecca’s summary:
This is a nice, casual cafe with chirpy, helpful staff. The waffles was so-so in terms of taste but the variant I ordered was a good choice as the peanut butter and tasty fried chicken wings helped in the flavour department.
The chicken was fried well, non-greasy and juicy within. Rm14.90+5% for this.

paddle and beans Melaka cafe hopping - reviews-001

We can’t complain about the affogato either. While most Malacca cafes seems to be fond of using Walls ice cream, the staff assured us that they sourced their ice cream from a local home supplier.
For RM8.90, the affogato was good.

Interior:
The Marilyn Monroe picture is obviously the eye-candy here. We like the pop of color the turquoise wall provided for the inner space. Tastefully low hanging bulbs and natural sunlight from one side illuminates the cafe while furniture are kept simple.
Outside, the long table is popular with the young groups. I thought the tall, sectioned shelves with ornaments, pots of flowers as well as the chalk-written blackboard is a nice touch.

Rebecca’s summary:
Food isn’t great. At least not for the pork burger and paprika pork chop that we had. One was too salty (the pork patty) while the other (paprika pork chop) was one-dimensionally spicy.
The bun for the burger was dry and hard while commercial sliced cheese was used and the fries over-fried. The usual ketchup and chilli sauce are supplied since there are no special house sauce.
For RM28++, it was a disappointment.

Overall food execution was poor for the two dishes we had. The good news is the menu offers a wide range of tapas, burritos, seafood and meat based mains so perhaps ordering the pork burger was not the right choice.
Our original pick of pork ribs were out though we were there at 6pm+ (Todd’s open at 4pm). The sous vide lamb rack was highly recommended by the staff so that could have been a better choice.
Oh, they offer some interesting desserts such a pork bacon ice cream so that might be worth a shot.

The beverages were fine. I had a “Remembering Your ABC” (RM11.90) (carrot, apple, ginger, lemon, beetrootwhile my partner had a Banana Milkshake.

Todd’s Pork Burger: RM28 ++.
150g of homemade pork patty, streaky bacon, iceberg lettuce, tomato slices, cheese, sunny side up egg, sandwiched between homemade buns.

Rebecca’s summary:
This place is an absolute sorry excuse for a cafe in terms of SERVICE.
My personal experience was a negative one and I will NOT revisit.
Here is why.
To be fair, the coffee isn’t bad.
The sweet girl who served us deserve a mention for her patience considering the late hour of our visit (they close at 6pm & we were there at 5pm or so), there wasn’t much desserts left to order (the tiramisu was out) and I was disappointed. However she patiently replied my queries such as which the type/brand of ice cream is used for their affogato.
When she replied it’s Wall’s ice cream, I immediately changed my mind about ordering it since I don’t fancy Walls.
But the girl said “We find Walls ice cream good and matched perfectly to our coffee for the affogato.” Well, to each their own.

We settled for an iced mocha (RM12 nett). It tasted like iced coffee with milk, with absolutely NO HINT of chocolate whatsoever.

Khaki Coffee Bar Melaka - cafe hopping guide-002

Khaki Coffee Bar Melaka - cafe hopping guide

The girl who served us disappeared to the back for a while. Meanwhile, a guy took her place at the front and was talking to some customers.
He looked and acted like one of the staff (manager or owner) so I thought, “Hey, if you have a question, why not ask someone who knows? This guy looks like he knows his coffee“.

So I went up to him and informed him we ordered an iced mocha earlier but found it to be completely lacking in chocolate flavour.

I was taken back when he threw me a disgusted look, and asked in a condescending tone; “Where have you drank mocha before?
I replied I came from KL, and we have many cafes there but my orders are different during my cafe visits.

He continued in that annoying tone and said they used Costa Rica beans here, and prefer to let the coffee flavours be prominent rather than be masked with other flavours such as chocolate.
I was baffled, but politely agreed while the coffee flavour must be present of course, but since it is a mocha, shouldn’t there be some flavour of chocolate at least?

He just gave me another look (that said you don’t know your coffee) and said no, that’s the way they make their mocha here. They do not use syrup or add a lot of chocolate.

I didn’t wish to continue the conversation further since I was handed that brush-off attitude.
Generally he had acted as if ordering a mocha was a crime in the first place.

Heck, some people like americano, some of us lattes, some prefer piccolo. Not all of us want to have cold brew or espresso all the time.
I fail to see anything improper with my enquiry and if I’m ignorant, why can’t you, as a person who is knowledgable in coffee, be patient and generous to impart your wisdom?

Let me be clear here; this isn’t a complaint about the food, ambience (which is non-existent by the way ) or the coffee.
What I am dissatisfied about is the condescending way he had handled the conversation. We are customers and we deserve basic service, regardless of what we ordered.
You put it on the menu, we have a right to order it. It seems that we paid RM12 for an iced mocha that he is disapproving of.

Coffee snobs might like this place since there are reviews claiming their coffee to be good.
If you wish to visit, go ahead.
But I have an extensive list here for you to select from, and I can assure you that other cafes offer better hospitality, ambience, food, cakes and beverages to warrant your time, money and effort.

There is no WIFI and there are only 3 tables with chairs. More seats are available at the bar counter.
No cakes are displayed, no outdoor seating provided but there are a few powerpoints near the tables so you can work and charge your laptop if you wish.
