During our short three day two night trip to Malacca, we still managed to visit 3 cafes 🙂
We had visited a few during our past trips, so we wanted to try out new ones this time.
A quick Google search showed that there were many cafes with good reviews near Jonker Street, so we basically picked based on where was convenient.
The Stolen Cup
We were strolling along the Jonker Street Night Market on a Saturday night and the crowd proved to be a bit too much, with the human traffic almost down to a standstill. We got out off it and decided to take a break at The Stolen Cup. We shared a Flat White (RM10), and a Salted Egg Yolk Croissant (RM9.90).
The aromatic coffee was strong and smooth, and the least acidic of the 3 cafes that we tried this round. It complemented the sweet and savoury croissant very well. We also liked the ambience here, and spent quite a while chilling out here before returning back to the night market.
The Coffee JAR
This was a small yet cosy cafe, and we had the best coffee of our trip here 🙂 Hubby had a Iced Cafe Latte (RM13) which was just slightly acidic, and it was strong and smooth. A very soothing drink 🙂 I tried the Earl Grey Milk Tea (RM10) which was pretty standard. This was a very special cafe that plays music from its shelves of cassette tapes, and we really enjoyed the old pop songs that were played 🙂 They also roast their own coffee, and judging from their conversations with the regulars, they are certainly very knowledgeable about their coffee. It was a great place to chill out!
Note: Free WiFi is available in the cafe, but as with most free WiFi that we encountered during this trip, the connection was not very good… and we were also not very sure why we were charged RM24 instead of RM23, now that we looked back at the menu prices…
Rainforest Coffee Bean Cafe
We had initially wanted to visit another cafe, but unfortunately it was full-house, despite being a Monday morning. Google search showed that Rainforest Coffee Bean Cafe served pretty good coffee too, so off we went searching for it. This was a little kiosk located right outside an antique shop, and you could choose to have your drinks inside the shop. We decided to sit just in front of the kiosk. Hubby’s Flat White (RM10) was more acidic than the other coffees that we had tried, but it was pretty good. Unfortunately, my Vanilla Milkshake (RM13) tasted more like water with sugar, with barely a hint of milk or vanilla. The ice cream was also not the creamy sort. Oh well, I just wanted to try something else other than tea…
