If you're staying in Kota Kinabalu, this coffee house is definitely worth a visit! We stumbled across this cafe looking for lunch and it was a perfect find. They have a wide variety of food and drink for a reasonable price, highly recommend trying the...October sandwich and the blue lemonade. The staff are really friendly and there was a really relaxed atmosphere.More

I think that I can't resist the lure of coffee, no matter where I go to. Even when I was in KK, I just had to satisfy the craving for caffeines especially after a long day. We'd just finished our Mari-Mari Cultural Village tour at...Inanam which came with complimentary lunch, and then headed back to the city centre. What I like about the cafe is the fact that it has a nice and cosy environment. The interior was nicely done with few nook and corner to spend time sipping coffee while working or chatting away. They even have a Mezzanine floor with if you prefer to drink with a "view" - actually not much view except for the interiors. ◾chocolate brownies - love it when the brownies was served warm and drizzled with more chocolate. ◾scones - not bad as the scones were crumbly and tasted just as nice ◾Good coffees were served here! Staffs were polite, helpful and professional. Overall a nice place to chill. Note: Parking is quite difficult during daytime.More

A cup of Latte accompanied by a slice of carrot cake. The carrot cake is not too sweet and it is moist. Tried the Brownies and Banana cake slice. Both a bit dry.

We came here twice for coffee and desserts. Every thing we had was delicious, staff were lovely and the place was nicely decorated and clean. The banana bread was so good that we took lots of it with us for our plane trip back!

Wow - this coffee house serves amazing coffee in a relaxing, cool environment. It’s just a short walk from the Atkinson Clock Tower and shouldn’t be missed whilst in town.

For anyone from Downunder that is looking for a real barista coffee in KK this is the place. It is off the beaten track, but worth finding. The atmosphere would not be out of place in Melbourne or Wellington. I would even say that the...coffee would compete with @archerspecialtycoffee (Sorry Isaac). The menu is simple and tasty. Great for a coffee fix when you have had enough kopi-O/kopi susu. It costs a bit more (MYR 10.30 for a latte) but worth itMore

Great tasting coffees. Top priority for the coffee shop obviously. Brownies are recommended at RM 3 each. Sandwiches are ok. Suggestion of different fillings maybe or a wider sandwich menu. We enjoyed the atmosphere and vibe of the cafe. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would...recommend for coffee and cake.More

After being disappointed by the lack of soy milk at various cafes in Kota Kinabalu, I was very happy to come across this cafe. Very cool vibes and great coffee - a gem of a place to get a little work done.

The ambience is comfy, relaxed and smells of coffee. It is a great quiet place to hang-out with friends. Coffee standard is good. Difficult to park during weekends.
