Enjoy Good Coffee At These 8 Cafes in Melaka

A trip to Melaka isn’t just about local foods and desserts. The historical state has seen a steady growth of contemporary cafe culture that serves artisanal coffee, light bites and comfort foods. Below are the 8 cafes in Melaka for those who are looking to enjoy good coffee.

1) The Coffee Jar

Once a tiny cafe, the expanded Coffee Jar boasts a spacious interior with a minimalist vibe and predominantly muted interior. Their coffee remains just as good (they make their own brew, after all), offering no-nonsense selections like espresso, americano and cappuccino. Also, look out for their single-origin latte using seasonal beans. Pair them no matter hot or iced with one of their delicious sliced cakes.

2) Sin See Tai

Beyond Sin See Tai’s old-school facade lies a cosy combo of the coffee bar, roastery and bakery. They specialise in artisanal coffee such as double espresso and cold brew latte and yes, they roasted the beans in-house. Best paired with one of their excellent pastry choices ranging from burnt cheesecakes to tarts, croissants and cake-of-the-day. If you dine-in, you need to place your order(s) at the counter and climb the steep staircase to find the seating area. A good place to chit-chat and catch up with friends.

Address: 18, Jalan Jawa, 75100 Melaka.

But if you need something to eat, they have comfort foods like toast and sliced cakes. Other than visiting here for a cuppa and enjoying food, you can also browse around their vintage collections of old books and whatnot.

Hidden from the busy road of Jonker Street, Backlane Coffee’s overall relaxing ambience has attracted both locals and tourists alike.

They make artisanal coffee from macchiato to flat white and double-shot single-origin options. For small bites, try their homemade cheesecake or cranberry scone. Do keep in mind their seats are limited.
