Quaint cafe overlooking the town, with a unique character... Both the scones were delicious.Friendly service. Would have loved to have spent more time there. I wouldn't mind paying more for the scones so that I could have real butter served.

The scones definitely live up to there reputation! Much cheaper then many other places selling scones, and absolutely delicious. The cafe is also located on the second storey in the main street so you have a good view over the town. Perfect snack after a jungle walk!

We ordered chocolate moist cake, banana pancake and a mango lassi. The mango lassi filled was just 3/4 of the glass shown in the photo. Banana pancake a bit bland and no syrup to serve with. Cake was just so-so..it was okay for a quick bite bit don't expect too much.

We decided to go for desserts to this café. It is very cozy and the atmosphere is really friendly. We tried the chocolate banana cake and the scones. Both are very good. The price is much cheaper than other cake shops in Cameron Highlands, the scones are sold for around RM 3-3.5 depending on the type. The banana chocolate cake... More

Cosy little café set back in a hidden upstairs location. Tea and scones was lovely and it is a nice place to relax after a day of walking and sightseeing

Popular for its only strawberry fruity scones. Other scones are also available at reasonable prices. Located in Tanah Rata town but not easily visible. One must keep their eyes open as access to this cafe is between 2 buildings at the far end of the town near to the bus terminal.

After reading several reviews that greatly recommended this cafe, and at somewhat of a loss of where else to go - my husband and I opted to allot our already limited time in Cameron Highlands to have lunch here. Walking in, we were instantly reminded of a homeless shelter. Sceptical but hopeful, we ordered a few of the 'exclusive' items... More

Love this quaint little cafe, found above Marrybrown Chicken. Feels like a home more than a cafe, with wide windows to look at the streets and people watch. Tried the scones which we found to be really good. Light and buttery, even better with some cream and strawberry jam. Must eat with hot tea! Also tried the chicken pie -... More
