Chill relaxed atmosphere.

I liked the fact that the food was not heavily salted.
Lots of fusion options too

Prices were competitive.

Typical Westerners haunt, can be noisy if stuck between the music in this cafe and the one competing across the street.
Excellent hand-made pizzas.

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.

Just because I’m a lone traveller my custom as anyone else’s!

Got the feeling if you weren’t spending in a big group was interested
