Located in Ulu Tiram, Sunshine Coffee is not an unfamiliar name to the locals. Favoured amongst all generations, this place uses Kluang coffee powder for its aromatic yet strong Hainanese coffee. So if you’re searching for a smooth and deep cup of kopi, this is the right place to go for it. Apart from its coffee,  Sunshine Coffee also hits the creative side with their Sambal Toast. We recommend a half-boiled egg to go with it!

A fairly new addition to the cafes that serve traditional local delights, Hock Kee Restaurant is somewhere you would stop by for its Nanyang fusion dishes. Here, you can choose whether you want your Kaya Toast to be crispy all the way or just on the exterior. Both are equally delicious with a huge slice of butter! Otherwise, you can also opt for their popular Hainanese Chicken Chop too.

Moving onto the next best breakfast spots in Johor is Qin Garden Restaurant. Although more popular for its Nasi Padang , this coffee shop is also on the top of the list for scrumptious soft-boiled eggs and kaya toasts. Additionally, you can also go for their wholemeal garlic bread for a more filling meal. Both taste great when coupled with their rich Hainanese coffee.

Serving more than 70 years of authentic local flavours, Restoran Hua Mui still exudes a local charm amidst the mushrooming rows of new cafes. With a long queue in the morning even before it opens, this place has an extensive menu to get you started. But here’s one thing the locals naturally order and that’s their Hainanese Chicken Chop. Said to serve the most original Chicken Chop in JB, it’s no doubt why it’s so good.

8. The Blackfast

The Blackfast is truly a place that instantly brings you back in time, especially with those tins of traditional biscuits laid across the shelves. But the menu here is something more to look forward to. With a range of toasts to favour between, their crispy Kaya Toast is still the best to pair it with our classic kopi drinks. Buttery on the inside and crispy on the outside, it’s best savoured while it’s hot.

If you’re after authentic white coffee, then this breakfast spot in Johor is something you’re going to adore. Established for almost 60 years in Johor, Fang Yuan Kopitiam is known for its dedicated effort to roast their Hainanese coffee in house and homemade Kaya spread. It’s also the reason why they’re famous for their Kaya Toasts and White Coffee beverages. With a little pull back on its Kaya Toast’s size, their aromatic Kaya is what attracts many.

Helmed by a local Hainanese family, Jong Suan Hiang has been in town to serve the best breakfast spot in Johor for more than 80 years. But what really separates them from other coffee shops in Johor is that the atmosphere here is filled with liveliness from a well balanced of customers across all races. The menu itself is something to look forward too. Here, we really recommend their Sambal Wholemeal Toast to tip into their runny soft-boiled eggs!
