Ordered caramel latte macchiato and chocolate opera! Nice and quite environment! Suitable for small gathering! Staffs are friendly! Local snacks available to buy as souvenirs!

A quaint little cafe in jalan kampong cina. Mainly serving hot/iced beverages, cakes and waffles. Nothing to rave about. Dark cozy interior, not tastefully decorated. They've got banana chips for sale...

Wandered into this place after a stroll in Chinatown. As soon as I walked in, it was dark and cool and had mixed aroma of coffee and cheesecake. I loved it!
