Definitely won’t recommend this cafe, poor service and terrible attitude of staffs. Not even bother to take a photo of this cafe. Also, Foods are just so so and small portion. Gimmick menu won’t last longer. Most importantly, they are not a kid-friendly cafe, this...is what I mentioned “terrible attitude”.More

Cozy cafe in Melaka Ancient Building, amazingly SPACIOUS! "Excuse me, what is Locahouz's special MENU?" "Try our fusion coffee, kam.chat coffee." "Taste funny?" "I personally highly recommended, the coffee with aroma of mandarin orange." When kam.chat coffee is served, Wow, Surprise ~ what a beautiful...cup of coffee ! Camera ON, we are Happy, great pictures for Facebook & Instagram!More

Nice ambiance and unique decor. The price a bit on high side and the coffee taste could be enhanced.

Delicious food, but rather expensive when you compare the portion. My friend and I were expecting bigger sizes drinks. But again, it was a small portion of drinks. We spent almost 4 hours there chatting..... Water hasn't been served. Kinda disappointed

Located at a rather quiet side of Jalan Bukit Cina, this charming café has its lure for good food and good coffee. About 5 minutes walk from the historical and touristy Sam Po Keng Temple. Decorated with lots of mini greenery forest with running water,...it allures a kind of peace and soothing ambience. Seem like owner loves plants. It is every where. From ground. From ceiling. Actually, from outside of café, there are greenery plants on both sides of the door. You need to press the bell for entering. Once in, you will notice lot of red lanterns. I almost thought I was in a temple. The cappuccino (RM10) is aromatic with thick flavour of the beans. It is smooth and well executed. Latte is equally good. The avocado cheesecake (RM15.90) has a very unique taste. Not too cheesy or overly sweet. First time trying. Taste good. Famous for their pumpkin bread, we order the Honey Mustard Chicken version (RM18.90). Bread is soft but not too heavy on pumpkin. The grilled chicken cutlet is tasty. This dish also comes with a small portion of potato salad which is a little dry with slightly citric acid taste of lime, I guess. We enjoyed our time here especially when served by a young, very friendly and smiling server called Josh. It made us feel very welcomed.More

It is recommended if you come to melaka. This cafe make you feel relax. Coffee is delicious. But this sign board is not easy to see, perhaps they should redesign the signboard and make people to easily to spot the cafe.

It's located in a row of shophouses, and the inside is filled with Chinese lanterns and impressionistic paintings. Staff are friendly and fast, food is delicious and portions are large. Especially try their pork belly and pumpkin bread, both are incredibly flavoursome! Only small grouse...is that the iced coffee drinks come in medium sized tumblers, so not very good for thirst quenching.More

Staff were fantastic, very polite and helpful with the kids. Menu was fresh and tasty and coffee was great too. Don’t let the front entrance fool you, it’s an oasis inside. The bacon was great too.
