The Baboon House is a quaint cafe in Malacca that impresses thanks to its authentic gourmet burgers, freshly ground coffee and laidback atmosphere. With a tranquil open-air courtyard, spacious seating arrangements and eclectic furnishings, this place certainly isn’t short on personality. Situated in Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock, the peaceful and cosy environment of The Baboon House is in pleasant contrast to the busy lanes of Jonker Street outside.
This unique cafe-cum-art gallery offers a welcome rest bite from the day’s heat – particularly if you’ve been trudging through the narrow and crowded alleyways of the surrounding area all day. Whilst waiting to be served, there a few serene spots to sit back, unwind and enjoy a quiet moment by reading a book, browsing a magazine or inspecting the various crafts decorating the walls. This eatery is also pet-friendly with the owner’s adorable dog and cat both wandering about and (occasionally) greeting guests at the entrance.
