Let’s welcome year 2018 together! No idea where to go? Visit these places below!
1) Norm @ The Saw Emporium
2) The Book Sandwich
As the name goes, books are the theme for this café. Dim lighted, it is cozy and comfortable. Ever had a lobster in your sandwich? Well, this is the signature dish for The Book Sandwich! Though this place is easily missed, located at Beach Street as well, you should surely “waze” it out.
3) Rain Garden
Situated behind the shop houses at Burmah Road, is the Rain Garden. This place is spacious with contemporary decorations and designs. It consists of 3 parts, a café, a retro bar and a bright, airy restaurant at the end. The WOW factor would be its al-fresco garden. You will be spoilt with its wide range of offerings. Rain Garden relies heavily on the weather as there are no air-conditioners. Guess that is why they choose the name “Rain”.
4) Gala House
Located at Muntri Street, fused with modern and old interior design, is the Gala House. Besides normal tables and chairs, they have a space with a rather long table, suitable for big gatherings, events etc. Coffee blended with liquor is the specialty of Gala House. A must-try! (Hope you will not get drunk)
5) Jawi House Café Gallery
This café is not in Jawi! It is at Armenian street. Do take note. Do not be fooled by its name. This is a café cum art gallery. Every spot is picture perfect. The ambient will remind you of the Peranakan culture. It serves Jawi-Peranakan dishes with a Western-fusion touch.
6) China House
Traditionally designed, consisting of 3 heritage buildings, linked with an open air courtyard and converted into 14 spaces, this is definitely a place to hang out be it a big group or to be with your loved ones! China House consists of a café, restaurant, gallery and a bakery. Its bakery is something you must take note as they serve 30 different cakes daily! It is located at Beach Street, you will not miss it.
7) Macallum Connoisseurs
Black in color, Macallum Connoisseurs is located right beside Gat Lebuh Macallum. It is really spacious. An ideal place for big gathering, functions etc. Unlike many café, Macallum Connoisseurs has ample parking spaces for you. It is not only a café but a coffee academy as well. The café is decorated with exposed light bulbs with high container-like ceiling. Though it gives an industrial vibe, the place is comfy.
