at the Discovery Cafe & Guest House
1.) For the wonder of old world charm - a cafe blended with the kopi tiam outlook , then Discovery Cafe is the place to go and hang out or stay.Located strategically in the town center along Jalan Bunga raya - next to Chan Koon Cheng Brigde and literally a stone's throw away from St. Francis Xavier Church, Stadhuys, Little India Street and Jonker Walk as well. Discovery Cafe is truly about nolstagia.
2.) Inside the cafe is a large display of antiques and old photographs of old Malacca that will take you down memory lane. There is a wide selection of both local and international travel guides available for guests to broswse at leisure.
3.) Doubling up as a cafe and budget hotel, Discovery Cafe which is run by David Heng and KS Teng recently celebrated its 9th year and by the look of things , should continue to be a popular destination especially among foreign budget travellers and shoe-string local tourists especially owing to its central location.
4.) Food ranging from local delight NYONYA FOOD to western meals , 'kopi o', 'teh si' and also all kinds of beverages .Liquor are served here but what makes it truly appealing is none other than the ambience and friendly-natured staff who will make you feel very much at home.
5.) At night , the place comes alive with musical group and talented local live band. One of the live band guy 'JAI' who formerly played with one of of country,s top band,REVOLVERS. Together they render classics to golden oldies from Nat King Cole, Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley to Johnny Mathis etc and including pop songs.
6.) So regardless of whether you would or not put up a night at the guesthouse, Discovery Cafe is one place you should drop by and if not for anything else just to sit down and have a sip of a cup of coffee or tea and watch the world goes by while you savour the scent, senses and sensibilities of the Historical World.
