I remember when Lokl was being built when I was staying at BackHome Hostel which is next door. That was about 5 years ago now and it’s still going strong today.
I recently had breakfast here while staying at Big M Hotel (highly recommended) and it was really good.
I ordered a cappuccino which had great flavour and had beautifully silky milk on top. A really good cappuccino.
I also ordered a granola bowl. And let’s just say it took way too long to arrive at the table. Over half an hour. But when it did arrive, I was very pleased.The cafe itself has a great fitout and is frequented mainly by foreigners. I’m not sure why. Maybe because it’s next door to the hostel or maybe just because it’s the best cafe in the area. Whatever the case, don’t expect to see many (any) Malaysian faces.
This also seems to be an excellent place to work with the odd power point and nice tables. But when I was there, the wifi was dead. Not working even a single bit. Which is sad because when I last stayed at BackHome Hostel about 4 years ago, their wifi was great and it’s the BackHome wifi which you’re trying to plug into.
This is a great little cafe, but the two things that really bugged me were how long that granola took to arrive (30min!!!) and the wifi not working. Still, worth a visit for the coffee.
