2. Old Master Nanyang Cafe

Don’t expect glamour, as this is an old-school greasy spoon at its best. Originated from Taiping, this is a traditional café where wooden tables, phoenix cloud teacups and good thick coffee supreme. But wait, this café ain’t just that! Serving simplicity with a twist, they offer a fusion of old and new coffee cultures. This is the place where you can pull up a pew in a bygone era, but also break the monotony by having a sip of our latest coffee innovations! Try their best selling, Hor Ka Sai, topped with a creamy milk tea or coffee foam. Absolutely brilliant!
