Backlane Cafe is just off the crazy night market that is Jonker Walk. Escape from the madness for a while at this modern but calming cafe.

The interior is quite in contrast to the slightly gaudy sign, with old maps and memorabilia on all the surfaces.

The coffee is pretty good too, and the staff are very nice. As you’d expect, they do a selection of cakes as well as hot and cold drinks. There are a few board games to play if you like.

We just went in for a coffee, and the owl iced cafe latte was fun – the coffee comes frozen in little owl shaped blocks which you melt in the milk. See the featured image. Quirky and tastes great.

Address: Jonker Walk – 129 Jalan Hang Jebat, Melaka

Directions: At the stage end of Jonker Walk, on the left side as you walk away from the river and recessed a fair way from the main thoroughfare.
