The kaya butter toast is accompanied with delicious kaya and butter. Smells good. The coffee has 3 colors. Taste just nice, not too sweet.

French toast with coconut ice cream and blue berries jam. Taste good! But their signature kaya-kaya ice coffee & baba coffee is a bit too sweet, you might request less sugar. Telur Masin with toast not bad.

We stopped by for breakfast and weren't dissapointed. A little pricey compared to some other places but good food cooked fresh. I highly recommend the mushroom omelette. Nice setting overall.

Great place for coffee / food just a street away from Jonker Walk. Environment is great. Coffee was aromatic but a bit on the pricey end. As the environment was quite dark, there were mosquitoes though. Will return to try other food on the menu...More

The name of Kaya-kaya Cafe comes from a local spread known as “kaya”. It is generally rich in flavor and thick in texture. As such, our menu is created using the two keywords – richness and thickness. Our key vision is to promote more local specialties to foreigners. We elaborately design our fusion menu using our own local ingredients, such as salted egg chicken and sambal prawn, to serve with pasta. We serve food with kaya as well. Unlike the usual kaya that can be found everywhere, our kaya is especially homemade with duck eggs and Malacca sugar. One of the signature dishes that are served with kaya is “Malacca Elvis”; a pancake stack with sliced banana and kaya sandwiched in between, drizzled with homemade chocolate and peanut butter sauce. We also serve traditional dishes like “Yin Yong Toast” with kaya and butter and “Kaya Cheese Toast”.
