Long opening hours, good coffee & food served all day. Breakfast & light meal options plus cakes. All are made from scratch & on the premises. We love... More

A quaint little place hidden on the back lane opens until midnight. Just nice to calm down, have a quiet time and a tad bit of reading after a long day.

(My rating will be a 3.5, but Tripadvisor only allows whole number so there you go) One of the best way to escape the heat and crowd in Jonker Walk? Just walk over to Backlane Coffee!

This is a good place to relax after a hot day's walk along the Jonker Walk. This was place serves good coffee and cakes in a cosy air-conditioned environment. They also serve breakfast and pizzas. Give it a try when next in Jonker Walk

Given the hot and humid climate in Malacca, this coffee shop offer a place where you can relax and enjoy a good cup of latte. With sofas all over, it's really a good place to rest after long walking day at Jonker street. They also sell food, but we came there only for coffee, so can't say a word about... More

Stashed at the end of Jonker street, Backlane Coffee is a nice place to cool off from the scorching heat and humidity and to enjoy an nice cup of coffee or any other available beverages. The decor is basic but nicely done. Pretty spacious and airy, tables not cluttered too close to each other. Service is good and generally friendly.... More
