The Stolen Cup Cafe in Malacca Old Town

Updated: Sep 19, 2020


The Stolen Cup @ Melaka Old Town

The Stolen Cup is a fairly new cafe — opened in Jan 2017 — that is located along Jonker Street of Melaka Old Town. It offers a convenient place to rest our legs and get out of the heat when visiting the historical city of Malacca.

The little cafe serves some nice coffee with croissants and is a great place for breakfast and afternoon coffee-time. Ever since it's opening, I have visited the cafe twice on the 2 trips that I made to Malacca this year. I like this little cozy cafe. And I will let the photos tell the coffee story.

First, a full frontal photo of the little cafe. It looks like a cup of coffee itself with warm lights and woody furnishings.

And their barista specialty — Gula Melaka Latte (椰糖咖啡) — is highlighted on a little blackboard outside the cafe. Gula Melaka is the locally produced palm sugar and is a good replacement for sugar with a faint coconuty flavour.

A close-in of the cafe. Although not a very big cafe, the space is just nice so there will not be too many people in the cafe and allow more room for checking out the decorations.

First, we ordered our coffees and grab a table. We tried their highly-recommended Gula Melaka latte and Gula Melaka cappuccino. Yes, two different coffees in the photo below although they looked similar. The gula Melaka added nice flavour to the coffees.

Sip the coffee and admire their interior decorations. The walls are nicely decorated with painted wooden planks, posters and old clocks, giving it a rustic look-and-feel. The cafe plays Bossa Nova in the background.
