13 States Coffees, Calanthe Art Cafe, Jonker Street, Melaka

January 7, 2017
Hello my readers! Today I'll be sharing some shots of a cafe my brother Euri and I visited a while back: 13 States Coffees by Calanthe Art Cafe


We came across the cafe when we were walking around the heritage area. There were quite a lot of tourists, and when I asked my mum about it later, she said that she'd been there before and that their coffee was quite good.


Address:
Jalan Hang Kasturi, 75200 Melaka, Malaysia

Opening Hours:
9am to 11pm
Closed Thursdays


The cafe is very vintage-y and has an old look to it:



If you're wondering why it's called 13 States Coffees, it because the cafe is Malaysian themed! They incorporate a lot of Malaysian inspired designs like this Malaysian map on their wall:


And this painting of one of Malaysia's Prime Ministers (I'm not sure which one he is haha 😅)



The rest of the cafe is very cosy. They have a very "hometown house" kind of vibe:






They have an area deeper into the cafe with a sun roof and I found that quite nice:




MENU

My brother and I dropped by around 11pm, and 13 States still had their breakfast menu out:


We weren't really hungry, but we were hella thirsty. They have an extensive main menu with food and drinks, but their name is actually 13 States Coffee because their menu's highlight is 13 types of Coffees named after each state in Malaysia!


If you zoom into the menu above, you'll see that there are 13 different blends of hot coffee available. The same for their iced blended coffee:


They also have cakes and desserts available in the fridge:


Being an Ipoh boy, I ordered the ice blended Perak, which is actually white coffee! White coffee is a big thing in Ipoh and its definitely one of the things I miss the most.




Because we were walking around before coming to the cafe, the coffee was perfect to quench my  thirst. The taste was actually pretty good too! I was afraid that the ice or the cream would dilute it but it was actually perfect. Two thumbs up!

Euri ordered a smoothie (can't remember which one hahaha) and he enjoyed it as well.


We chilled there for a while looking over some photos we took. I definitely recommend trying the coffee out! Its the perfect place to chill after a walking and taking pictures around the heritage area.

And that's all for this post! If you'd like to read more about other cafe's I've visited, click here!
