Instagrammable Melaka Cafes to Visit

August 14, 2016 Malacca, Malaysia

Hello everyone! A few weeks ago was my sem break and I had the chance to visit a few cafes in Melaka. Cafes are one of the trendiest places for people to be in nowadays. Although the food and the taste is important, people today also take looks quite seriously. We live in a world consumed by social media and everyone is on the constant lookout for picturesque cafes to post online.

In this post I'll be listing down 4 pretty cafes in Melaka that are definitely Instagram worthy!

1. Eat at 18

18, Jalan Hang Lekiu, 75200 Malacca, Malaysia

Opening Hours:
Wednesday to Monday: 8.30AM to 6.00PM
Closed on Tuesdays

+60 281 4679


No GST charge
10% Service charge
No wifi

Eat at 18 is a quaint cafe located in the Jonker/Melaka Heritage area along Jalan Hang Leiku. The front has a lot of flowers that gives a "hole in the wall"-cafe kind of vibe to it, which I loved!

At first I thought the cafe was a bit cramped but the cafe extends to a central room with a sun roof and an area which can be closed off for events. There's also a mini garden inside!

Click here to view their full menu! It consists of mostly desserts and brunch items. They offer coffee and cold drinks as well.

2. Backlane Coffee Cafe

129, Jalan Hang Jebat, 75200 Melaka, Malaysia

Opening Hours:
Opens Daily
Sunday to Thursday: 11am to 11.30pm
Friday & Saturday: 11am to 12am

+60 6-282 0542

No GST charge
No service charge
Wifi available

Backlane Coffee is actually located inside a building, so you can't see it immediately when you pass by Jonker Street. I forgot to take a picture of the shop lots in front of it but they do have a sign outside so it shouldn't be too hard to find.

The interior is just too pretty for words! It has everything a hipster cafe needs: props, good interior, lots of light for pictures and lots of green plants for that added "tumblr aesthetic feel"!

They don't have any breakfast or lunch items. They offer more of the snacks and desserts kind of stuff, as well as coffee. I highly recommend their Lemon Lime Meringue!

3. Root Patisserie

No.57, Jalan KL 3/8, Taman Kota Laksamana Seksyen 3
Melaka 75200

Opening Hours:
Sunday - Monday:
1:00 pm - 6:00 pm
7:30 pm - 11:30 pm
Closed Tuesdays

06-288 0659

No GST charge
No service charge
Wifi available

Root Patisserie is more quaint and simple in terms of interior decor, but they make up for it with their super cute and wide array of sweets and cakes!

I'm a sucker for sweet things, but I'm an even bigger sucker for pretty things! Everything we ordered from Root was divinely sweet and I'd come back again and again just because they have such the cute selection!

*PS. They mave more items aside from those in the picture above. To see more, click here!*

Just look at this picture, isn't it just so Instagrammable/pretty?!

4. The Daily Fix

55, Jalan Hang Jebat, 75200 Melaka, Malaysia

Opening Hours:
Open Daily.
Monday to Friday:
10am - 5.30pm
Saturday & Sunday:
8.30am - 5.30pm

+60 6-283 4858

GST already included
No service charge
Wifi available

The Daily Fix is another cafe that's located inside a store, so you have to keep your eyes peeled to find it. Not to worry, they have a few blackboard signs out along Jonker Street.

I searched this cafe up on Instagram before coming and found out that it was quite popular (on Instagram at least). And I can see why! TDF has a rustic/vintage vibe to it that's very charming.

Since it's quite popular, you might have to wait a while to be seated. The Daily Fix serves all day brunch items, pastas, a  few cakes and of course, coffee.

To see more photos of the menu and the interior, do click here!

PS. For people who want to take nice flatlay pictures, I suggest sitting behind because there's more light there.

Plus they have a few plants and a well there, perfect for taking OOTD shots at!

And that was it for this list! I'll definitely be visiting more cafes in Melaka soon, so do keep an eye out for my next list!
