Geographér Café
Ben van Wijnen

"Cozy ambiance and a diverse range of delicious dishes. In the evening there is a singer outside and this in combination with the location next to the night market makes it very cozy. We are just here again the next day. Just a good place to go after relax a busy day and drink a beer. Definitely recommended!"


Geographér Café is conveniently located right in the heart of Old Melaka at the corner of Jonker Walk (Jalan Hang Jebat) and the Jalan Hang Lekir.
The Café is housed in a conspicuous corner pre-war building, which has been really well-restored and magically enchanted into a stunning living architecture. This eatery with its warm ambience reflects the gracious old charm of the seasoned traveller and truly maintains the tradition in a place where East meets West.
Geographer Café is ideal for day or night, eating and drinking. Downstairs is very open and breezy, with sidewalk seating. Upstairs is eclectic and cool.
A perfect setting with value for money food and drinks.

The Café was started in 1999 and officially opened in 2000. At the end of that year, the Café won an award from Persatuan Arkitek Malaysia for building restoration. Geographer Café has kept the warmth and history of the place and is considered a “living museum.”
It is a favourite venue for commercial shooting and a number of advertisements have used it as a backdrop.

Within walking distance from Geographer Café, history is alive in abundance from Geographer Café. The oldest Chinese Temple and Muslim Mosque are located on Harmony Street, a short stroll away. This beautiful old architecture respond to cultural and spiritual expectations from the glorious past till the present day.

Jalan Hang Jebat or Jonker Walk will be closed at 6pm - 12 midnight on Friday, Saturday and Sunday to make way for a night bazaar. So be remember to remove your car by that time. Or else your car will be stucked there until midnight or you even might get a fine ticket.

This street which is about 1km long becomes bustling with activities. Stalls are set up in front of shop houses, selling all kind of thngs, mainly souvenirs, knick-knacks, handicarfts, toys, quality stuff, walk in to the shops for bargain. Wooden clogs seem to be the local souvenir or specialty here.
