Great place to have sarawak style breakfast ( laksa, mee kolo, coffee, popiah) while watching the world start to get busy. However dont expect too much on the laksa. there are many better laksa in town.

A great place for a local breakfast. Ordered the laksa, popiah, kaya toast and teh c peng(which is iced milk tea in English). The food is decent and delicious. The gravy of the laksa is thick and the food is made of fresh ingredients. Very...crowded on weekend morning.More

Kuching is famous for laksa and kolo mee, and when asked for recommendations, this was the place that was highly recommended. The laksa was amazing, and tasted really rich with its slightly sour but addictive flavour. The kolo mee was good too, and had lots...of ingredients which made every bite different, and the ingredients all matched the texture of the kolo mee. If I have the chance, I would definitely come by again.More

I went just before 7am, ordered kolo mee because the laksa stall wasn't ready. The kolo mee was soso. The laksa stall took time to set up, but my order finally came, it was well presented. The flavour was good, but the gravy was not...top choice; there were 3x prawns and 5-6 strips of chicken meat. At medium size, does it seemed expensive at RM9? Do not order coffee.More

This coffee shop serves drinks and bread toast. The other stalls serve laksa, kolo mee and popiah. Every time whenever I am in Kuching, must eat laksa & popiah at this coffee shop, very tasty.

Laksa sarawak and kolo mee were good. Service also good. Overall was good. There were few stalls inside. Just pick which dishes you want and place order directly at the stalls chosen.

She used to lived next of the cafe, in her prime school time. She told me that my grandpa always took them in weekend to eat laksa in this cafe and order black coffee every morning. It was a pleasant moment she can come back...and talked to the owner of the cafe and yes they remember my mom's family. I order laksa and kaya toast with iced milo. My meal that day was so Malaysian. Now the cafe is famous and being the most wanted laksa and kaya toast place in Kuching.More

Popiah is a must try. Very generous portion and the peanut-garlic-chilli sauce is unique and so good you can’t say no to. The laksa has a sour curry like taste which may not be for everyone but it’s still a must try for first time...visitors.More

Any place that Anthony Bourdain patronized you'll definitely have to queue most of the time. I was disappointed the last time i came here at 9.30am because the place was packed & i couldn't find a table and the order queue were very long. This...time i went at 6.40am and waited for them to open at 7am. By 7.15am the place were full & this was just a weekday. I have to say the laksa was pretty good. It was definitely worth waking up at 6am for a bowl of 'breakfast of the Gods'More

Once i knew we were visiting Kuching, i knew this place was a must. Anthony Bourdain described this Sarawak Laksa as soup of the gods, boy was he right. This bowl of heaven was the best laksa I've had (I've had a lot on my...time), forget anything else you have planned in Kuching, get here early and order a large bowl.More

Use a Grab taxi to go there. The crowd was so happening, we were advised to just dump ourselves to any empty table. This place is so in demand! Apart from laksa, the kolo mee and popiah is dirt cheap (MYR3.50). All tasty and super...delicious. Will definitely go again.More

Food ordered Large Laksa RM11 Brooth is salty which overpowered most of the aromatics and fragrant ingredients , one of the prawns is not fresh . I would say a far cry from Breakfast of the Gods :)
