Cafe Jufei (聚啡馆) is situated on the 3rd floor of a building along Jalan Ismail in Kulai District to the north of Johor Bahru. A doorway on the ground floor, with a chalkboard, leads to the "hidden" cafe. I actually missed the entrance on my first visit and had to double-check Google Maps to find its location. The entrance is right beside Yun Yun Loy (远远来) Wantan Noodle shop.
Cafe Jufei's chalkboard carries several pieces of information, especially the types of specialty coffee bean for V60 hand drip coffee. On the day of my visit, Tanzania, Brazil and Mexico beans were available. Tanzania beans is one of my favourites, so I will try the tastes of the other beans.
Once through the doorway, walk up two flights of steps to the 3rd floor. All shoes are to be left at the cafe's entrance before entering.
Cafe Jufei has a homely and very retro settings — like travelling in a time tunnel. Most of the collections, figurines, comic books, vintage equipment, cassette tapes, etc, are several decades old. Some of the items brought back my childhood memories.
For Star Wars fans, check out the large number of Star Wars figurines on the shelf.
Cafe Jufei's menu is very simple. Apart from coffee, tea and chocolate, two light-bite options are available: homemade bread and cheesecakes (choices may be available).
I tried the V60 hand drip Mexico beans on the first visit and the Brazil beans two days later. I prefer to have hand-brew coffees these days.
Borrowed a vintage toy from the shelf to take photo with a glass of mocha latte.
Cafe Jufei's homemade bread looks very appetising with white and black sesame seeds. It is spread with garlic butter and toasted with at least two types of cheese. The taste is splendid. It is a must-try when relaxing here.
Out of 3 choices of cheesecake, I opted for the apple cheesecake, which I have never tried before. It is cheesy with citrusy apple taste and slight cinnamon flavour. Nice!
Cafe Jufei is a nice place to visit and spend some time relaxing here when exploring Kulai District.
