10 Best Cafes In Johor Bahru
#1 Mok Mok Brunch & Bistro
A cafe where you escape from the mayhem of city life for a refreshing change as it is decked out in greens and surrounded by glass walls for natural sunlight to filter in. Featuring a star show of all; Kumo Ultimo, this jiggly mess is comprised of cream cheese shuffle pancakes that are paired with cookie crumbs, flavored mousse, ice cream, and your preferred topping, this sweet treat is nothing but pure indulgence.
#2 The Replacement – Lodge & Kitchen
Nestled along the historic Jalan Dhoby in JB, drop by and order yourself one of these soft shell crab bao with fries: the crispy texture of the crab has a nice contrast to the soft, homemade bun. For dessert, get a plate of piping hot churros with your choice of dip! There’s salted caramel, dark chocolate, hazelnut Nutella and the ever-coveted salted egg yolk sauce.
#3 Bev C’afe
Fashion meets coffee. With a street dedicated to just cafes and hipsterism, Bev C Cafe stands out in the most simplistic manner with a sense of sophistication peeking out from their minimalistic yet cozy ambiance and a menu mostly colored in black. You gotta give a try to their house special – Espresso Ice Cube + Caramel/Chocolate + milk. Served with a couple of ice cubes of espresso with a syrup of your choice and jar of milk to fill to your liking. Let the ice melt first, if not you will just be drinking chocolate milk. Oh and the charcoal croissant with chicken ham? Worth the buy while your retailing soul wanders.
#4 Flowers In The Window
With a name sounding that pretty, step in a botanical garden where nature creates a beautiful mess with the plethora of flowers. Well decorated with the use of old fashioned furnitures and displays, experience a calm feel with a variety of healthy options from cold-pressed juices to their flower-infused beverages. We’d opt for their Coconut Water Edible Flower Ice Cube, a refreshing concoction which will hit you with its sweet and nutty taste. The incorporation of fresh herbs, thinly sliced cucumber and coconut flesh worked beautifully together with the pretty ice cube taking it up a notch with the environment. With a menu ranging from salmon on a toast to avocado with egg benedict, you gotta pick up the menu and surprise yourself.
#5 Let’s Get Cereal
YES it’s a CEREAL bar, not a serial bar! AND Yes, you’ve heard right! Right at the end of Jalan Dhoby towards Jalan Duke is Let’s Get Cereal, an eatery that’s dedicated to cereals with more than 20 local and imported options that will remind you of your childhood breakfast the cinemas you’ve watched the kid munching on your dream cereal. ALL HERE GUYS! Patrons get to choose among six pre-mixed cereal bowls or they can also customize one that is to their liking and if you’re feeling the sugar rush, don’t just sit there! Gey up and roman around their in house retail space with local brands!!!

Several savory French classic dishes include the all-time favorite Croque-Madame and other aromatic quiches. Whoever said Malaysian didn’t know a thing or two about pastries?
#7 Roost, Repurposed & Recycled
As its name suggests, Roost, Recycled & Repurposed Café has an interesting concept of using only recycled materials for their furniture. Rummage through their findings of vintage CDs, posters giving it a vibe of a beautiful mess your mum wouldn’t necessarily appreciate. Aesthetics aside, the café’s menu offers healthy fresh fruit juices as well as refreshingly hearty salads alongside hearty mashed potato and pasta bowls for those who appreciate some content to their platter.

#8 Faculty Of Caffeine
Some might even term it overrated due to its hype, but could you really blame them? Encompassed of a cozy hideout located at Jalan Trus, opposite Galleria Mall and a few blocks away from the area where all the well-known cafés are, with a menu comprising Bacon and Eggs Waffles, smother your senses with Fluffy waffles glazed with mustard seed butter, buttery scrambled eggs, beef bacon. The coffee here is brewed with 100% Arabica beans and served in unique takeout cups that resemble eye charts. As for the desserts, you ain’t stepping out without a smile!
#9 Shakespeare Milkshakes
The name gives it right away. Exuding a Scandinavian-style, this cafe specializes in milkshakes and it ain’t for the weak. Chocolate lovers can go all out with the café’s Kinder Bueno Specialty Shake. The milkshake comes with chocolate dipped glass encrusted with nuts on the outside, filled to the brim with a rich dark chocolate shake and topped with a savory cheese stick, salted cookie, and a mini Kinder Bueno Chocolate. Sounds a tad it overwhelming? Share with a friend and it would be just nice! Besides sweet treats, look forward to a range of savory croffles (croissant pressed between a waffle iron) and THE MUST Cheese Croffle. Gooey crispy pastry stuffed with beef pastrami and sweet onions is too good!
