If you are staying in the historic centre of Melaka it's hard to miss this café - we must have walked past it a dozen or so times during our stay. Visited it twice, the first time just for drinks after strolling along Jonker Street looking at the night market. It was pretty full and the waiting staff were struggling to cope with orders, but the place felt welcoming with some reasonable live music. On the second occasion we had lunch and it was much quieter. The menu is a mix of local and Western cuisine and we enjoyed what we ordered. This is not the place to go for authentic Malaysian cuisine (and you are likely to come across quite a few fellow tourists) but I still rather liked it.

We had lunch here at the Geographer and really enjoyed the food, beer was beautifully cold and the service was good too. A good variety on the menu and buzzy atmosphere, recommended.

This is the first time we dined in here. We always see many people and the cafe were always crowded. We never thought they served food (thinking it was pub only) before this.

There were so many varieties of food to choose from. All food ordered were good but the most importantly, the service and the hospitality was great!

Nice location to sit on the middle of the Jonker street. Expecially on the freaking hot weather and you grab a beer and sit inside the cafe and having a break.

Their services are good and it is very cooling inside.
However the foods are just so-so compare to the others cafe. It is provided varieties of food choices and also vegetarian foods. But their taste just cant attract me to visit for second time. But if you wan to grab a beer or have a rest? it is a good place to go.
